You may have heard of the Elf on the Shelf. Perhaps it’s a long standing tradition in your home.
Well, we don’t have an Elf on the Shelf at our house. That doesn’t mean our shelves are entirely empty. Nope, we have something on our shelf.
I’m trying not to be, because it really does seem to be trying to fit in here. I mean, we found it reading the blog.
You know there’s a story behind this. You’re waiting for it, right? Here it is:
We recently celebrated the Bionic Man’s birthday. In our family, birthdays are celebrated with a favorite meal. The Bionic Man’s favorite meal is anything that includes lobster. So we had lobster, along with some other seafaring crustaceans and shellfish. It was a decadent dinner.
We started out just taking a couple of pictures of Justone with his creation, but things sort of….escalated. Before I knew it, I was following my children all over the house, snapping pictures of the Christmas Creature’s adventures.
I can’t recommend a Christmas Creature as a long-standing tradition. I’ll be frank, it didn’t smell so fresh. Our Christmas Creature is now hanging out in the yard near the birdbath, where my children are hilariously wondering when it will be noticed by unsuspecting callers.
Come back tomorrow, when we’ll be celebrating Gingerbread Week here in Holland!
