Our Elf on the Shelf Ginger Week 2

Ginger has been pretty busy this week!!!  Here is a peek at what she has been up to...

 Just relaxing on the window
Since we didn't decorate our tree yet Ginger thought she would help out
 Lifting a weights made out of a candy cane and two large marshmallows.  You need to work out when your main diet is sugar based!!
 The girls got a treat of some homemade mini doughnuts to start off their morning.
 The coffee was all set up for us on this chilly morning
 Ginger reminded us of the true meaning for the season and decided to join our Nativity Set
Ginger was just zip lining through our kitchen.  She even left the girls some candy canes and Clara a candy cane made out of a Baby Mum-Mum cracker.  Ginger is the best!!!

A Very Minted Christmas

Every year I get excited to see all the fun designs that are available for our family Christmas card, even though I get a stomach ache thinking about actually taking the picture.  Hopefully Clara will be the ham that she usually is and everything will go nice and smoothly.

This year as I was looking for ideas for our card I noticed that Minted had a really great selection of fun designs for their Photo Christmas Cards.

Here are just a few of the fun designs that caught my eye as I was browsing their site.  I am planning on a playful card this year the girls are excited to wear their Christmas Pajamas, so these seemed like they would go really well with our theme.

Be sure to stop by Minted to see all the other things that they offer!
They have an variety of stationary, prints and children's room decor items too.  These items would make great gifts for any occasion.

**Disclosure: I will receive money off my next Minted purchase for writing this post to participate in Minted's holiday card promotion however these are my own unbiased opinions.

Elf On the Shelf Adventures Week 1

Ginger is back and she is having a lot of fun!!  Every morning the girls anxiously wait to go down and see where she is and what she has been up to and this week she has been pretty silly.

Day 2
Ginger decided she would be a leprechaun for the day.  She was also wearing the rainbow loom bracelet that Juliette made for her.  Which made Juliette so happy!!

Day 3
Ginger thinks driving a shoe train is a lot of fun!

Day 4
Ginger must be wishing for some snow.  She made us some cute snowflakes.
Day 5
It was a bubble bath kind of morning for Ginger.  I think she liked that the soap had her name in it!

Day 6
Ginger was really creative today! These play-doh containers led us to...

...a play doh GINGER!!!

After looking around again we finally found the real Ginger hanging out on top of the Kitchen cabinets.

Day 7
Ginger was so excited that we were going to decorate gingerbread houses that she decided to decorate her own.

Check back next week to see what else Ginger has been up to!!!!
Does an Elf on the Shelf visit your house if so what has your elf been up to?
