Elf on the Shelf Welcome Breakfast!

Well friends.
I am officially that, mom.
The "elf on the shelf mom".
Ohhhh I remember being pregnant with Kennedy when I heard of this thing & could.not.wait.
Last year, I thought would be our first year. But we really wanted to start it when they both could at least kinda "get it"!
This year was our year, & boy are ALL of us excited!
I kinda tested the grounds with Kennedy prior to our elf's arrival!
We are  in full swing for all thing Christmas! So, I just let her know Santa was sending a elf here!
Then, one day; a elf on the shelf commercial came on & she said MOM MY ELF MY ELF!
Gosh, she is smart. 
So I told her yup, your gonnna get one in a few days!
Gosh, this thing makes easy bedtimes.
"your elf will be here soon, you better get to get bed to start a new day"
Then we got Kensley saying "elf" she doesn't quite "get it" but boy can sister point out a  elf & santa where ever we go
I told Kennedy we needed to named him, & asked what his name will be at dinner as a famiily.
Promptly she replies "SPRINKLES".
Perfect. 
Spinkles it is.
We watched the "elf story" the day before so she got some of the ground rules!

& then it was time for Sprinkles grand entrance.
So what better way, than a over the top; as-much-sugar-as-you-can-consume breakfast? 
I mean really?
Of course.
I had lots of questions about where everything is from ect. I am going to do my best to remember links & where everything is from :)

First?
Jammies!
I searched far & wide for these suckers.
Of course they were at the one Walmart I didn't go to.
The girls woke up & had to follow a string to the jammies with the letter from Sprinkles. It pretty much just said what she does & to put on the jammies & come to downstairs to meet her!
Coming downstairs!


checking stuff off out in her just woke up state.

Personalized elf on the shelf plate I just mod podged the paper to the back on the a clear plate.
I added red dye to the mod podge to put on the outside of the plate, to make it look more festive.
Candy Cane silverware, is from Target!

LETS EAT!
Fruit Candy Cane & Snowman Donuts
I couldnt find small mugs for the girls small hands. But finally came across these at the dollar tree. I used just sharpie for the snowman face.
Inside I made Hot White Chocolate ! Recipe:

is just white chocolate {like the candy not bakers} cut into pieces then simmered in the milk on the stove til melted. It was delicious!


We ate, listened & dance to the chipmunk christmas soundtrack!

no highchair sister, stood & ate the whole time 
Gosh, it was so wonderful.
So many memories were made.
It was the best kick off to the holiday season!
To many more, welcome breakfasts!
