Cowboy the Elf

This year, we did Elf on the Shelf for the first time.
Our Elf, Cowboy, arrived the Saturday after Thanksgiving and each morning until Christmas, the kids woke to find where Cowboy was and what mischief he had gotten into while they were sleeping.
As you can imagine, it was a big hit with the Little Lady!


One highlight was when Cowboy brought T a new Rapunzel outfit with a note to "Get up and put this on, you're going to go somewhere fun."
Gaga, T and I had an awesome fun girls day in Denver at Disney on Ice.
I'm pretty sure the Little Lady's face says it all!  

On Christmas Eve morning {he went back to the North Pole after this}, Cowboy made the kids a special breakfast, left them a farewell note and gave them a present.

I totally had fun doing this and will definitely do it again next year!

If its wrong to want a kid just so I can do Elf on a Shelf then I don't want to be right. BUT, said kid will have to go home after Christmas :) So cute!
