We miss you, Cece.

The girls were not happy when they learned that our Elf on the Shelf, Cece Fluffy, would be returning to the North Pole on Christmas Eve and would not be hanging out at our house again until next year. I miss Cece as well because he was a great distraction in the morning. See, the girls can sometimes be a bit grumpy and clingy in the morning. Especially when I'm trying to get ready for work. BUT they loved looking for Cece in the morning and we witnessed a decrease in their morning funk.

Cece was sometimes a bit naughty. Here are some of the things he did:
  • Wore Little Lion's tutu

  • Took a candy cane from the pantry and hide in the laundry room with it

  • Snacked on a lollipop - again, taken from the pantry

  • Spilled crayons all over the playroom floor and drew a picture

  • Stuffed the Grinch into a stocking


To be creative, I told the girls that the dolls for their "family dollhouse" are like the toys in Toy Story. Not as fun as looking for Cece but it sometimes works as a distraction in the morning.

I found Christmas-themed birds at the fabric store for 64 cents a piece! So we had three little birdies from the North Pole at our house this year during Christmastime. It was so nice to be able to say "The birdies are watching!" and have them (sometimes) behave! :)

Oh my gosh, I love that your elf did things! That's hilarious! The boys miss Rosa (our elf) too and I'm sad we have to wait until next Thanksgiving. I hope I can remember to have him do funny/naughty things some nights!

Maybe you could hide a picture postcard from Cece every so often for them to find. You could take a pic of some Cece antic for them to discover - kind of like a penpal.

My daughter cried when we told her our elf, "Woody" wasn't coming back until next year. She did recover well though.

Love the creative name for your elf!
