Welcome Doodles the Elf

Welcome Doodles the Elf

It is that time of the year again. I am one of the blogging mums who has an elf visit each year – sorry about that!

I love Christmas and this year is no exception.  We are full of Christmas cheer in this house. Even the monkeys at the top of the blog have decided to join in!

Doodles the Elf

Doodles the elf sits next to two star wars advent calendars.

Our elf is called Doodles and if last year is anything to go by he is a little mischievous!

He created havoc in the bathroom and was using my lipstick to write messages on my bathroom mirror!  So it is fair to say that as from today we will have an additional little monkey joining us for the month of December.

Here are some examples from last Christmas so you can see what we are dealing with:

Doodles the Elf: getting caught by a door handle, throwing toilet paper everywhere, sitting on a tv, caught up in a toy and writing on a mirror using lipstick!

Anyway, having carefully considered how to blog about this, I decided not over elf the pudding (sorry). I will do a little round up post of his antics once a week – on a Saturday.

For those not familiar with the elf, he arrives on the December 1st and stays until Christmas Eve.  He flies back to Santa each night to report on whether children have been naughty or nice, which – as a parent – is really quite useful, I have to say.  It saves me having to contact Santa each evening!

Today Doodles arrived for the month and he brought the boys advent calendars, which is very nice of him.  He also brought a letter from Santa.  The boys are over the moon!

If you have one of Doodles friends visiting you this christmas please tag me on social media and share your posts!

I would love to see them all and to know that I am not the only one bought in to the elf madness.

Let the christmas craziness commence… yippee!!

We have joined in with #elfontheshelf as we count down to christmas!  Come and say hi to Doodles on the blog today. The children are thrilled that Santa would let him visit us.

    Ironically enough, I posted about NOT having an Elf and that I’m sort of sad I didn’t jump on board with it. (Mainly so I could make our elf do offensive things, lol.)

    Hi, Doodles! 🙂
