    We are. My daughter doesn't believe any more but she's going to help with ideas for my son :)
    Ours will bring the advent calendars on the first day.

    Ours will be arriving on the first. Last year they had a baby, and the girls keep asking if the baby will be coming back grown up...ooops.
    Plan is to write a letter saying she's grown up and visiting another child.

    The elf will bring:
    Fidgit advent Calendar (to share)
    Chocolate advent calendar
    PJS
    Letter/Note
    Funky headband
    Christmas Socks

    I bought elf some cards from Porky Pengiun that give ideas every day. I will try to remember to take some pics.

    Hopefully we can give each other ideas with this thread . Don’t think I will get away with throwing them in the tree when I go to bed and forget this year :rofl:

    I'm still doing it, DD1 still believes (she's not sure but wants to believe) I start work at 5am now so I'll be able to move the elves around before they're up for school.

    We've had no central heating for the past week, somebody is coming to fix the boiler on Weds. I'm going to try find some mini jackets? And leave a note saying "it's warmer in the North Pole, back tomorrow" to give me extra time, but have their calendars out ready.

    One of the school mums has made a page on fb with ideas so I'll post some in here when they're added!

    Thanks smartie that'll be so helpful. I've only done it 2 years and feel like I've done everything. I'm thinking I might have to be careful about placement this year with ds5 wanting everything

    The boys haven't mentioned the elves at all so I think it should be quite the surprise when they turn up tomorrow

    They're back!! Girls have been talking all day about them.
    So annoyed the fidget advent calendar is slightly damaged...my fault as I should have opened the packaging when it came rather than stashing it away quickly.

    Hope heating is fixed soon (and not too costly) x

    So sad, I ordered a book on Amazon ages ago which had 24 different stores which I thought was perfect for the 1st for elves to bring but the date kept getting pushed back and I got an email today saying they still aren’t in stock so I’ve just cancelled the order.
    I’ve got their little gift bags ready and table is set up for breakfast nothing extravagant as we don’t have time to breathe on school mornings just gonna add sprinkles to cereal haha!
