So I got this idea from a fellow Instagramer, Imagination Tree, and I couldn't be more excited about it. I have always seen Elf on the Shelf and I love his antics however I don't love that I have to threaten my kids to be good, instead I am hoping to give them ideas for being good, sharing love, and showing kindness.
This was the introduction of the Kindness Elves,
I was so excited about bringing these little guys out
And of course the girls were thrilled, Introducing Winter, formally Griz, and Shorty!!
Now the whole point in the elves was so that the girls were showing kindness to others
but were having fun while they were doing it.
This day brought two birdseed bells so we could share some kindness
with our feathered friends. My girls get a love of birds from my mom and
their great-grandma's, so much fun hanging these outside.
Oh, if you know my girls at all you know their love of animals, furry creatures big and small
bring smiles to their faces. So Day 3, brought out a cat bed that K had actually bought for our cat, but he refuses to use. She has been wanting to take it to the humane society for months, the elves bundled it up with some other goodies and off we went. We spent and hour at the shelter, petting and playing with the older cats. If you are looking please consider adopting they are wonderful animals. The girls also got to hold a couple of the kittens and love on some of the office dogs. A great time was had and the girls already want to go back again.
This day was about the girls, letting them know that their kindness had not gone unnoticed.
They love my mom's peppermint gum, she buys it special just for them really and
so when this Candy Cane gum was right up their alley. They were very excited and funny
they took it to school and shared some with their friends. So Proud.
A treat for the mailman, yes it is a guy, and
some cards for a friends daughter who could use some extra cheer.
Another recap next week and some more posts,
because I have missed my little blog
and writing about our life!
