He's Baaaaack!

Our friendly family elf, Scout, is back for the holiday season.  Yippee!!!  He flew in last night and worked his little elfin fingers to the bone preparing perfectly elf-sized portions of breakfast favorites for our second annual Scout's Snowflake Breakfast.
The littles could not believe their eyes when, coming downstairs for a regular weekday breakfast, we turned on the light to find Scout perched atop three tiers of breakfast confections in a snow, snowball and snowflake dotted tablescape.
A gentle reminder not to touch Scout was likely targeted at my favorite almost three year old.
There were miniature bagels with strawberry cream cheese, tiny powdered donut puff balls, pint sized yogurt parfaits, teeny buttermilk biscuits with strawberry preserves and (regular sized...oops) red delicious apples!!
And you know it wouldn't be a Snowflake Breakfast without a few scrumptious (yet somewhat naughty) treats!  Chocolate milk with whipped cream, sprinkles and candy canes and chocolate and sprinkle dipped marshmallows on peppermint sticks were just perfect.
Alternating looks of confusion and sheer joy flooded these precious faces.
While we ate, I did the honor of reading the book for the first time of the season.
There was loads of banter around how Scout likely spent his summer and how long it must have taken him to bake up all these treats.  A rare and memorable school day breakfast together indeed.

The decorations are up and Scout has arrived...Christmas has commenced around these parts!!

So excited for the features at Tip Junkie and Anything Goes.

  5. Katie and Jackie - y'all are too funny :-) Love friendly banter like that!

    Betsy - I set the table and had everything ready to go before I went to bed. The donuts and biscuits were just covered with saran wrap. The yogurt and milk were prepped in the fridge. Honey got up with the boys so I could pull stuff out last minute. We did allow a few extra minutes to actually sit down to eat...our mornings are usually much like yours :-)
