Those Darn Elves!

16 Dec

A few years ago we were visited by our first Elf on a Shelf. He was fairly unassuming and would typically just find some quiet spot to sit and hang out at. Nothing earth shattering. Made for a relatively pleasant experience. Then a couple of years ago he invited a couple of friends to come along. Since that day they’ve managed to make themselves right at home becoming at times, somewhat bold and downright mischievous. We’ve managed to document some of the more, shall we say, “creative” moments as a means of providing you some things to “watch out” for (wink, wink).

One year they commandeered a Barbie Camper for their trip south.

Most recently they held what appears to be a late night jam session in which they invited other toys to come join in and sing.

This was the elves helping themselves to my Kahlua and caramel popcorn while enjoying what appears to be a marshmallow soak.

One morning we awoke to find that they had taken a bag of flour and created a little snow field. A couple of them were caught making Flour Angels while the third one had helped himself to an elf sized “beverage.”

This was the joy we found one morning after they TP’d our kitchen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One thing they did that was both festive and actually helpful, was the stringing of Christmas lights in our kitchen. We liked it so much we decided to leave them up year round.

So be sure to watch out. Stay prepared. You never know what these little guys (and gals) will get into next. They can keep you busy, but they do manage to bring some holiday cheer into the home.

Happy Holidays!
