Whew…Busy Weekend

Dec 12, 2011

I don’t know about you, but our weekend was pretty busy!  And our Elf on the Shelf (aka Doodle) was a busy elf too! I admit, we got a little lazy this weekend with elf ideas. So, if you have a creative idea, send it my way!

If you’re looking for great Christmas deals, take a look at these two. In our store today, every time you spend $100, receive a $30 That Store Gift Card! Give the gift card as a gift, or keep it all to yourself! You do deserve it. If you are too far away to come into our store in Dothan, shop with us at Today, take $30 off all orders over $50! Plus, enjoy Free Shipping!

Take a look at our busy Doodle and see what he was up to this weekend. I hope it inspires you to get creative with the precious little elf at your house!

Doodle rides his John Deere Tractor!

Doodle loves my dining room arrangement. I like mercury glass too, Doodle!

By Sunday night, we were out of suggestions. Maybe with the new week, we will gain a little creativity!

That Doodle!

Dec 9, 2011


You’ll never guess where Jack found Doodle the elf this morning! Doodle was in the manger, of course! That silly elf!

Please help our family! We’re quickly running out of creative things for Doodle to do.  It’s only the 9th of December.

Send me 1. The name of the Elf at your house. 2. Ideas for nighttime elf behavior.  3. Any pictures with your little one and their elf. I’d love to hear from you!

Our Doodle

Dec 8, 2011

Our Doodle Elf was a busy little elf last night! Jack found him in our kitchen this morning fishing for goldfish! Jack was a little worried that he might indeed catch his Peanut Festival Fish. This goldfish is a sturdy fish though. He holds the record for the longest living festival fish in the Giles household!

Get your Elf on the Shelf at That Store today! We even have Claire & Charlie bishops and longalls!

Elf Fascination

Dec 7, 2011

I’m not sure who has had more fun this Christmas season with our Elf On The Shelf, Jack or my girls! As soon as it gets dark each evening, my girls (15 & 13) and my husband begin to conspire about what our “Doodle” will be doing as soon as Jack goes to sleep! So far, Doodle has been found sitting atop the  toilet tissue roll looking down at a green-watered toilet! The next morning, Doodle was found kicked back relaxing in the snow in my hurricane lamp.

And this morning, he obviously enjoyed roasting marshmallows last night for his smores! (For an extra touch, Mary Katherine actually roasted the marshmallows on the toothpick!) I don’t know about yours, but our Doodle is a messy little elf. He left tiny marshmallows all around him!

We shave several elf products still available at That Store! The plush elf is great for the little ones who want to hold the elf and don’t understand (or care) about him loosing his magic. We also have a few of the elf skirts still available. Instantly turn your boy elf into a girl elf! And finally, the Claire & Charlie Elf Bishops and Longalls are perfect for this Christmas season! You can purchase these at That Store online at or in our store in Dothan.

We are constantly looking for creative elf ideas! We’d love to hear from you about your elf’s nightly journeys. And don’t forget to tell what your elf is called at your house!

Christmas Cards!

Dec 2, 2011

The Christmas season is my favorite time of the year! And, I especially love to plan my family Christmas cards. This year, during one of our family trips to the beach, I asked (actually begged) my 3 children to take pictures on the beach. My girls are now 15 and 13. So, you can imagine how excited they were! I have to admit that I am a perfectionist when it comes to Christmas card photos. And I wanted to use my new lens that I have been playing with for months now. So, it came as no suprise to me or my family that we not only took pictures on this beach trip, but we also had a redo while we were at the beach on another trip! My girls were not happy with me. But it’s Christmas! Only the perfect picture and card idea will do!

Morgan and Mary Katherine decided to go with all white dresses. I dressed Jack in a white polo shirt with khaki shorts by Bailey Boys. Oh how I miss the days of the smocked jon jons! Listen to me. Wear the jons jons and the smocking as long as you can!! After that, it’s Polos and khaki pants forever. At That Store, we specialize in outfits and dresses for Christmas! Ashley always says I buy too many Christmas outfits! Every year, I tell her you can never have too many choices! After all, everyone wants the perfect Christmas card outfit!!

I promise to share my Christmas card with you as soon as they arrive. In the meantime, let me know what you decided to do for YOUR Christmas card and what your little ones are wearing.  Please post them on our facebook page or email them to me so we can all enjoy and get inspiration for next year!

I hope you have a very, merry Christmas!
