The return of Joey the Elf!
I can't believe I didn't post about Joey the Elf!! I thought I had and now see that it did not post! oops! By now most of you have probably heard of the book, Elf on The Shelf. If you have not,it is about an elf that comes after Thanksgiving to watch over children. Each night he(or she) reports back to Santa on the childs behavior. As soon as the elf comes, you have to name it. Ours is named Joey. He usually comes the day after Thanksgiving but was a bit late since Liams b-day was such a big deal. This year I found the cutest idea on a blog I stalk, I mean follow. The site it at http://happylifecraftywife.com/?p=1039 and after looking at it, I totally knew I was going to do something similar to it! A party for Joey the Elfs return! How fun, right?? Tamara is way more crafty than I and you could see it in every awesome detail! I mean, her party was kickin!. The pjs alone are to die for! She takes beautiful photos, you have to check her out!! (really, everything she does is absolutely gorgeous!!) So,the day after Liam's b-day bash, I decorated the table and had milk, "snownuts"(powdered doughnuts), and chocolates on it. There was a coloring book, some foam crafts, a santa lantern and even a letter from Joey!! Liam loved it! It was really cool!
