North Pole Breakfast 2012

It was about this time last year when I became inspired to plan this North Pole Breakfast memory for our family. I ran across this blog post and knew this was a tradition we'd carry on for years.

Sure enough our first year is one for the books.



Not only did our breakfast kick off the beginning of the Christmas season in our house, we also introduced Jackson to The Elf on the Shelf. After sifting through hundreds of pins last year and debating whether or not I loved or loathed the Elf and his antics, I've landed on love. And for now, since Jackson is still so young, our Elf will be keeping things relatively chill.

Now? Onto our sugary collection of breakfast yummies!


Gathering sweets for a North Pole Breakfast really doesn't have to be difficult. Grab some Krispy Kreme Powder Donuts, Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls and Duncan Hines Brownies.

Really, whatever menu you choose, there's no doubt your little ones will gobble up those sweets!



As we munched on our goodies, I talked to Jackson about Santa and Christmas and his new Elf who'll be joining us for the next few weeks. He listened, he babbled and he at a ton of food. Like a lot.


He may or may not really be up to speed with the actual Elf thing but I figure repetition will be key.
As per usual in toddler life.


The rest of our day was spent in a sugar coma enjoying ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas movie specials. We didn't change out pj's all day. We shared snuggles on the couch.  We trimmed the trees. Decked the halls. And fa.la.la.la.la.la.la.la.la.

As predicted, Christmas Jolly is bursting from the seams of our view here at Five Ten. Breakfast bloopers and Five Ten Christmas details ahead this week. The Christmas Holidays are officially here, y'all! Just ignore the flip-flop weather :)

If you've been thinking of doing a North Pole Breakfast, I highly recommend it. Hop over to my Elf on The Shelf Pin Board for more breakfast and elf ideas.
