The Antics Of Our Elf On The Shelf


Last year I learned about The Elf on the Shelf thanks to my social media connections.

After seeing all of the tweets and Facebook pictures of this little dude getting into so much trouble, I had to have one for our boys.

Our elf showed up on December 3rd sitting on our mantel looking all sweet and innocent.

Day 1 Elf on the Shelf

I know I am cute.

But I know what he is really capable of.

Just check out some of the other elves and their antics on Pinterest.

Ours has been pretty tame so far.

This is what our elf has been up to as of late.

Day 2 Elf On The Shelf

Just swinging from the chandelier!

Day 3 Elf on the Shelf

No, you don’t want to look in this mirror.

Day 4 Elf on the Shelf

Look, I’m up high Mom!

Day 5 Elf on the Shelf

Anyone want to play a game of Wii with me?

Day 6 Elf on the Shelf

Mmm, chocolate. Oh, is someone cooking something? The oven is on. It’s getting hot in here?!?!

Day 7 Elf on the Shelf

I love bananas!

Day 8 Elf on the Shelf

I need a nap today.

We still do not have a name for our little guy. I’ve been calling him Elfie the Elf. I think it may stick.

What has your elf been up to the last few days?

    I love seeing everyones pics. But, we had to send ours back to Santa. My poor Whirlwind does not like things in the house roaming around at night. :)

    I like seeing all of the pictures too. Some elves are pretty creative! Aww, that is too bad your elf had to go back to Santa! Maybe next year?

    Bahaha! I love that one of him sitting on the M&Ms head! I have to say, glad you’re all having fun, but this thing creeps me out! No Elf on the Shelf for me, thanks! I’ll just look at all your pictures and admire! Lol

    My kids would love one of these guys, but I still refuse! My kids would drive me bonkers if I had one of these!
