    When we was in the range today they had random elves around the shop. The girls went crazy saying mummy they're back, look, look... I had to whisper to DH to keep them away from the aisle where they sold all the stuff and actual elves....DD would be gutted if she realised you could actually buy them . Time to keep kids out the shop ha ha

    Oh no! I try to shuffle mine past they have saw the odd thing but my kids know that sometimes I provide the elves props (I didn’t tell them this they questioned why the elves had my tags and asked if sometimes I leave them/give them stuff and I was happy to go along with that)

    I may have to use that idea if they ask. Why do we make it so difficult on ourselves lol

    DD has already been talking about her elf. She can't wait. She's mentioned they sometimes bring a friend (another elf) and she hopes hers does this year, so I may get another. I'm pretty lazy when it comes to our elf doing anything. I usually think about it 10 minutes before DD gets up, and I just move him. I set low expectations! LOL DD still loves it all!

    We always had a old brown box for ours to arrive in . Started to get ripped and tatty looking so decided to buy one out the shop . Few days after 1 December DD2 shouted all over the shop thats the box the elves came in ! I didn’t even know she’d seen them wasn’t in a obvious place!

    I’m thinking of going back to an old brown box and wrapping it again with brown craft paper with red and white ribbon !! Didn’t feel the same somehow last year !!

    Our homeys have the elves too and I am not taking my girls in there down those aisle !!
