benjamin mistletoe

Elf told me he wanted to be called Benjamin Mistletoe. We are not to call him Benji or even Benjamin. It is always to be Benjamin Mistletoe. He is particular.

He is also a roaring success. Ellie LOVES him and is so excited to try and find him every morning. On Monday he left the nativity. Here he is (doing a great Vanna White impression) showing it off.

Here comes Ellie and Daddy trying to find him.

Look what he left Mama!

I love Benjamin Mistletoe.

Yesterday, he was found on the time-out bench with no presents. He was just hanging out.

This morning he was found on the Dora chair with another present! A dancing Santa!

Found him!! (no that is not a puma in the background. That is our infamously fat cat Hoosier. I seriously think she has a thyroid problem.)

He left me another present Mama!

Dancing with Santa!

I think I might take a picture everyday and try and make some kind of book out of all the pictures. "The Tales of Benjamin Mistletoe" or something....

Oh, a photo book would be a great idea with those adorable pics! We may have to do the Elf on the Shelf next year.

Great idea! I may have to borrow it.

I'm inspired! I want to do this now! So fun!

Do your book on shutterfly, they are adorable!

I love the photo book idea as well! We love Elf on the Shelf, too. Although I did forgot to re-hide him the other morning, and my boys were quite unhappy. I told them clearly they must have woken up too early and the elf didn't have time to change hiding places yet! Oops.

The Elf on a Shelf is adorable, and so is your daughter!
