Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? We’ve had our elf, Jack, for two years now. And his arrival is much anticipated by E. He has said several times that he can’t wait for Thanksgiving because that means Jack will be coming! Well, after two years of the elf, I have decided that I needed to have a plan. You know, so that the elf doesn’t forget to move one day. Not that it would happen in our house! LOL
So, I have gone through all the elf ideas that I have pinned over the last year or more and came up with a calendar for Jack. The problem? I have all these cute pics in it and I can’t get it to publish here on the blog! Sometimes technology is such a pain in the tinsel!
Because I can’t get it to work, here is the best I can do, a text list of the ideas, and then I will provide links for you to check out visual ideas.
