The Elf on the Shelf

I bought this little Elf years and years ago, before I ever had Fox, long before I was even pregnant. 
I couldn't wait until I could put this little guy to use. Last year, we introduced him for the first time, which is when Fox named him "Airplane the Elf". Since Fox was only 2.5 years old at the time, we only moved him around the house and he was excited to find him every morning. 
This year however, was a whole new ballgame, and December 1st couldn't come soon enough for me. 

Day 1
We started the tradition last year, that our Elf always brings Fox his Advent Calendar, he got a Lego one this year.

He was super excited to see him, although I think he was more stoked about the present and candies he brought with him.

By Day 24, I was more than happy for this little guy to go back to the North pole and stay there for the next year. 
Until next year, Airplane the Elf!
