Elf on the Shelf 2019

Our Elf on the Shelf, GusGus is back for another year of fun. I have to confess I didn't do a calendar like I usually do. #MOMFAIL There has been morning that I am rushing out to move him before the kids wake up. There was even a couple days that he didn't get moved, but luckily Austin didn't look for him until after I some how snuck around and moved him, or had Brian do it when I wasn't home. There were also a few days I forgot to take pictures.  I will admit to being up at 2am feeding Audrianna and scrolling Pinterest to see what fun idea I can find that is easy but new. 

A girlfriend asked me the other day why we still do it if it sometimes seems like such a hassel. The traditions, the memories, the excitement in the kids. GusGus is really a part of the family during the month of December. Ella will write him a note and wait for a reply the next day. Austin will say "GUS GUS" every morning in a British accent (thank you Peppa Pig) when he finds where he has moved to.
