Brewster Returns!

Brewster the Elf on the Shelf returned for another year of crazy antics visiting our home for the month.  He really outdid himself a few days, but he was also lazy a few days too and didn't move at all.  Haha!

Brewster returned with a special message and letter for the boys.

Kind of hard to read on our countertops, but it says "I'm Back!" with M&Ms.

Brewster also informed the boys that Santa made a special video message for the boys sent to their mom's e-mail.  They both love their yearly Santa videos (Evan's and Brody's).

And Brewster's graffiti on the boys' bathroom mirror.  Evan was particularly offended when Brewster wrote "Jingle Bells. Cocoa Smells."  Haha!

Brewster was missing the snowy north and made a little snow angel on our counter with flour.

I guess he needed a shower that night to wash off the flour mess.

Superhero Brewster returned and attempted to fly with the aid of a candy cane and our Christmas banner.

Then, he decorated our front door like a snowman.

Then, he suspended himself from the light in the play room with candy canes.

He gave the boys a special present by gift wrapping their toilet.

Complete with a special reminder not to forget to flush.

He cheered the Panthers to victory on Sunday wearing his football jersey.

Then, he behaved very badly and tried to do battle with Evan's little army men.

But the next night they taught him a lesson.

They had him all tied up.

So he made up and read all his friends a special story about Santa.

Then, he prepared to help Evan bake his cake for the Cub Scout cake bake off. He even wore his chef hat.

Then, he got himself stuck head first in Brody's stocking.  I guess he was checking to see if there was any candy left from last Christmas.

He went for his customary ride on Mr. T.Rex.

And tried to ride giant Elmo.

Hmmm, I wonder who played darts with Brewster?

Oh, I guess those two didn't appreciate being ridden.

Holding baby Jesus.

And a few final presents for the boys.  He wrapped their pictures.

And to remind the boys of our Christmas Eve plans, Brewster was reading the Christmas story and had picked out two Christmas movies for Christmas Eve.  Evan chose to watch "The Crippled Lamb" this year after not wanting to watch it the last couple of years.  He got sad when the little lamb was attacked by the mountain lion, but he understood the meaning more this year with the Shepherd saving the lamb.

Lots of Brewster's friends gathered to hear the story.

And Brewster stayed for Christmas morning with the boys to tell them goodbye.  
See you next year, Brewster!


  1. This is so cute. I really enjoyed reading about your family's adventures with the elf! :)

  2. Oh my goodness!! It looks like there was great fun to be had at your home. :)

  3. It looks like Brewster was quite creative and had a lot of fun during his visit to your house!

  4. Brewster is so much fun. I am a little torn about having an Elf at our house. I think we might have to next year.

  5. Love it, love it, love it! Isn't the elf just such a fun tradition to have? Except for the days that I have to get out of bed to move him I love having it be a part of our holiday season. I'm totally coming back to this post next year and stealing some ideas. How was the clean up after the flour?

    1. You know what? The flour snow angel was actually all Eddie's idea and inspiration, and he handled it all...even the clean up. I was particularly impressed since he does not use pinterest. ;-)
