Something you do know about me, I'm a very frugal individual. There's no way that I would spend $30 on a little Elf with a book. Just couldn't do it. I happened to be at Hobby Lobby on November 30th when all of the Christmas stuff was 50% off. I found this adorable Elf, it was the very last one, but she had a little smudge on her face. So of course I used the smudge to my advantage like any good negotiator would do, and asked for an extra discount! I ended up getting our very own Pinkie Elfie for $3! WooHoo! Honestly, I think that Pinkie is a lot cuter than the real Elf on the Shelf, but that's just my biast opinion, kinda like how I think my kid is the cutest kid in the World ;)
A week in the life of PiNKiE:
Pinkie introduces herself to Luciana and "The Reason for the Season."
I made up an introduction letter. My 14month old could probably care less about Pinkie, but whatever. I'm having a Blast! Here's my letter:
I have come to enjoy the wonderful season of Christmas with you. I wanted to start off our time with explaining to you the Real meaning of Christmas. When we celebrate Christmas, we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Ask your Mommie and Daddy to please read you Luke 2 in the Bible, for this is why we celebrate Christmas!
I'm looking forward to spending this time with you celebrating Jesus and the "Reason for the Season." We will have lots of fun and exciting adventures together.
Keeping Christ in Christmas~
Pinkie forgot to set her alarm and was still snoozing
in her homemade hammock under the table...
Pinkie started her day off with some yoga.
Looks like she's mastered "Bird of Paradise."
Pinkie is practicing her Christmas Carols.
Pinkie prepared herself for the
Arctic Blast that hit Dallas!
Pinkie seized the moment and made a real snow angel!
It may not snow in Dallas again…
Pinkie made gluten free PiNK cookies for my Dad's Bday.
Happy Birthday Dad!
Stay tuned to see what Pinkie Elfie does next week. If you need your own Elf on the Shelf ideas, feel free to borrow some of mine. Enjoy the holiday season, see you soon!
