Do you Elf on the Shelf?


This is the first year none of our children you-know-what in you-know-who.

I was a little sad about it.

And I was even more sad when I realized no on you-know-whatted in you-know-who last year either.

The stinkers never told me.

But I’m not bitter.

I just thought it would be fun to start a NEW tradition.

Elf on the Shelf

With the help of Pinterest and just some everyday creativity, we’ve enjoyed having our Elf, Avery, visit us this season.  We haven’t moved her (yes, she’s a HER and she has a skirt, too) every single day, but we have found her in some silly, even precarious places!

Avery seemed innocent enough when she joined our family… perching herself on the mantel next to the “Letters to Santa” ornament.

Then she found our stash of M&M’s.  Silly elf should probably stay out of my chocolate.

It appears Avery is friends with the Tooth Fairy.  Good thing, too, after eating all that candy!

But then there was this… I guess all that sugar was too much for one little elf and she must have had one wild sugar high and crash!

Stay tuned for more elfin adventures!  Who knows what Avery will get in to next???

  1. We had an elf growing up. His name was just “Elf”. Every day he’d leave us little presents from the time our tree was put up until Christmas Eve. Sometimes it was chocolate, chapstick, dollar bills etc… just fun little things. Even when we didn’t you-know-what in you-know-who we still believed in Elf!
