Elf on the Shelf


Growing up we had a little elf that looked just like this one.  I so wanted one for my house but never found one until "Elf on the Shelf" became popular a couple of years ago.  If you have never heard of it, the original story goes that some elves leave the north pole to watch the girls and boys to help Santa.  The story is much more elaborate and there are rules that no one can touch the elf or the magic is lost.  Each day your elf gets into mischief and kids enjoy what the elf has been up to.    If you are curious, there are a LOT of awesomely clever ideas on Pinterest and around the web.

I thought it might be fun to add my elf to my blog for the month of December, but I didn't want Ella and Jackson leaving with out meeting him.

  2. We had the elf when I was growing up, too. He didn't get into any mischief, though, just sat on the tree (or the mantel) and looked cute. :)

  4. We had a boring elf when I was a kid who just sat there. Had no idea it was supposed to do anything until last year, so I bought one because I didn't want the kids to ever say they were cheated out of something. Kids were 14, 12, and 10 at the time so our elf was a bit more naughty and daredevilish... snowball fights with marshmallows, ziplining across the living room. But they lost interest pretty quickly. Our elf went to live with a 2nd grade class this year. I'm sure she's having more fun there.

    It's way better with kittens.

  7. Oh, this is so cute! Thanks for bringing a smile to my face. I love how they seem to interact with the elf.

    Thanks for your note about Lucy. Just FYI, she's blind and I am certain that's why it happened. She didn't see the bars or have an awareness of any danger. That makes it more difficult on me to think about, but I don't think it would happen in your situation but never say never is what this has taught me. Being extra cautious is only a good thing.
