Berry the Elf in 2015 #elfontheshelf

I’m taking a break from black and white photos for a couple of weeks.  Last year I failed miserably to share our elf antics on the blog, although they did feature on Instagram.  So I thought I’d share the adventures of Berry the Elf in 2015 to date.

We would love to have him creating snow elves in flour, eating chocolate and generally being very naughty with all things food, but we have Brewster.  The cat who will try anything once, and I really don’t want him to need an emergency trip to the Vets!  So our Elf Escapades might be tame compared to some, but Monkey loves it.  He’s a total believer that Father Christmas sends Berry the Elf to keep an eye on him in the run up to Christmas.  Last year there were tears where we discovered Berry had gone home on Christmas Eve whilst we were at the Crib Service.  Thankfully Berry left Monkey with some Reindeer Food to scatter in the garden, the tears were soon gone and the magic returned.

So here is a little snapshot of what’s been happening here since 1st December.

The Magic Elf Door appears on 1st December, along with Berry the Elf and a few gifts.

I wonder what other capers Berry will be getting up to before he leaves us on Christmas Eve?  Do you have an Elf in your house, I’d love to hear what they’ve been getting up to.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
