Ruby Recap (Elf on the Shelf)

Last week I introduced you all to our elf, Ruby.  She has been busy this past week so I thought I'd share what she's been up to!

On Thursday, December 1st, she arrived with donuts from the North Pole, the Elf on the Shelf book, a chocolate Christmas countdown (the best kind) and a note.

Kyla was very excited for her to be back.  Thursday night she left a pillow and blanket (towel) out for her so would have a comfy bed to sleep on.  We woke up Friday morning and found her sleeping with a friend.

Saturday morning Ruby replaced all of our stockings with our (clean) underwear.

Sunday morning she brought the kids some new pajamas (and returned our stockings)!

We made some muffins on Sunday and Ruby helped herself Monday morning!

Tuesday morning was a little crazy.  Ruby brought a "pretend elf" for Kyla.  One that she can touch, play with, snuggle with.  She was SO excited... until Kase came over to her bed and grabbed the real Ruby.  She was devastated and certain that she lost all her magic.

That night before we went to bed, we researched how to make her magic come back.  Thanks to Google and a random mom who made a YouTube video, we found the perfect cure.  We made her a comfy bed and sprinkled cinnamon all around her.  Kyla felt much better and reminded Ruby that she should be more careful about where she hangs out because Kase doesn't understand the whole "don't touch the elf" thing.

We woke up Wednesday morning and found Ruby in her robe and slippers.  She wrote a note saying she wasn't feeling well, but thanked us for taking such good care of her.

Apparently she was feeling better by yesterday because she was up to no good.  She decorated our Christmas tree with toilet paper!

Stay tuned to see what she's up to next week! :)
