Brinkley on the shelf

If you have had any human contact over the last few Christmases, I'm sure you have seen The Elf On The Shelf.  They are everywhere and parents spend crazy amounts of time planning what to do with these elves.  Personally, I haven't read the book and don't know the whole back story on the elf.  All I know is I have avoided the phenomenon like the plaque.  There are several reasons for that, but the main one is that I don't have the time or energy to join in the showdown.  What showdown you ask?  The endless one upping that families do to see whose elf is the funniest, cleverest, or naughtiest. 

Every year I buy my kids new Christmas pajamas.  Near the end of the season last year, Brinkley was playing in his pajamas and found a hat in our costume box.  He put the hat on and it hit me!  I don't need a toy elf that I have to cook up mischief for, I've got the real deal!   If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you have probably seen my #brinkleywashere collection and know that he can find plenty of mischief on his own.  Looking at him in those elf PJ's and elf like hat brought it all together. 

We hope you will join us on this journey as we venture through the Christmas season with......
