North Pole Breakfast ~ 2010

Super, our elf, made his first appearance of 2010 this morning!!!To celebrate, we had our first ever North Pole Breakfast! There's that little sneaky guy! He wrote letters to the littles...
...and brought a little treat!Warm socks to keep those piggies toasty...after all, it's reeeeeally cold in the North Pole! Daddy read the classic Elf on the Shelf, which reminded us that we can't touch Super...so he brought a little puppet the littles can play with any time they want! And then it was time for classic North Pole breakfast food... Snow-covered Donuts... ...and Floating Glacier Hot Cocoa! He even brough a big Peppermint Kiss straight from the jolly old fella himself...and teeny tiny Kisses from Rudolph and the other reindeer, of course! The donuts were a big hit... ...but the laughs shared ...and the memories made - like a little someone's first taste of hot cocoa - were even better! Such a fun morning spent together...Can't wait until next year's North Pole Breakfast, our new tradition to celebrate the start of the holiday season!
Merry Christmas!

I just love this idea! We have an"Elfie" that comes to our house every year but we have never done the breakfast. We might have to try that in the future. Thanks for sharing.

Amy Hightower Murphy said...

Love how cute your table is decorated! And I love the Elf on the Shelf thing! I've been trying to decide if my little girl is big enough to understand it this year. I'm thinking she probably isn't so I might wait until next year to get that book/elf. Thanks for sharing this cuteness!

God Made Playdough said...

Ashleigh said...

Oh my goodness. What a fab idea! Michael, our elf, just kinda showed up this year after a dramatic first entrance on our doorstep last year...but this, this cute breakfast idea...if you Turkey Trot with me next year, you can fill my ears with cute ideas!!!

Jessica said...

he he he...thank you all so much!

I literally decided to do the North Pole breakfast the night before so I just gathered what I had on hand and made one last minute trip to Target for donuts & marshmallows and then just put it all together, adding the letters to G & H at the last minute. The littles loved it so it was all worth it in the end! :)

Ash~ I SOOOOOo need to do Turkey Trot!!

Absolutely LOVE this!!! I would love to know where you got your table decorations and the paper you used to write the notes. Thanks so much for sharing!

I just found your blog, and I have to say, 1st, you are AMAZING, and 2nd, your kids are so lucky to have a mom that takes the time to make such fabulous memories for them!This was so sweet!

Jessica said...

Thank you for the sweet comments!!

Most of the tableware (except for the cloth placemats) came from Target! The paper I used for the letters came from Michael's scrapbook section.

Again, love this idea!

Hey there! Thank you so much for this! I added a link to your page on mine for an Elf on the Shelf idea compilation that I made. Here is the link: http://kindacrunchymamalife.blogspot.com/2012/11/elf-on-shelf.html I hope that's ok?! Thanks again so much!

lauraa said...

love this!!

Shannon said...

This is fantastic! We're totally going to start this tradition this year which is perfect because its the first year our elf will appear! Btw I got mine after Christmas last year for half price at target. So for those of u with babies if u can wait its worth it.

Kindt Family said...

How did you move your Elf off of the donut jar?? I thought he couldn't be touched? Just don't want to blow it for my kids, and want to know how you're working around that. Thanks! :)

Jessica said...

We've added our own little family rule to the "no touching the elf" rule.

On the first day the elves appear (North Pole Breakfast), the littles can each give a hug to their elf and tell us where they want us to place their elf (mantle, their room, etc.). From that moment on, no touching!

Works well for us! :)

AP Mommy said...
