Elf On The Shelf: Asteroid & PIxie Are Back

The Elves, Asteroid & Pixie have arrived for the third year.  They always come the day after Thanksgiving in our house! The kids are having a lot of laughs about them.  When they come down in the am to have breakfast, they look to see what they’ve done and make comments – which coincidentally the elves tend to do the next day.

Day 1 – Skipping Rope Competition 

First you have to understand how much Maebh loves to skip – she does this all the time. 


Day 2 – They ate their favorite numbers from the Advent Calendars & finished my chocolates!

Day 3 – Frozen Memory

(Maebh and I played it the night before and of course she won.  I don’t try to let her win, she is just too good and wins often!)


Excuse the messy kitchen, waiting on the dishwasher to finish 🙂

Day 4 – Hide and Seek inside our the Nesting Dolls

Soren piced the back one & Maebh the colorful one and Soren got it correct.

Day 5 – Toilet Paper Roll Race

When Maebh woke up today she said, I knew they were going to roll down the steps with toilet paper – I told Papa about it yesterday!  I knew it!!”

Day 6 – Christmas Cards


The kids brought home their individual drawn Christmas cards yesterday and Maebh did some additional sketches, so they acknowledged their good jobs.

Day 7 – Orange Juice?


Day 8 – Sleeping in Stockings.

Now that the kids have put up the tree, the elves found their stockings & took a rest. 


Day 9 –  Chocolate

The kids still have two pails of Halloween candy left over and as the school is looking for donations, the elves suggested they donate them.  Kids disapprove! 

Day 10 –  Decorative Plates

Last year we made Santa & Rudolf plates and this year the elves want one for them. 


Day 11 –  

Clearly need to get back and find photos of what they did for the rest of the days!  Slacker!!

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
