Elf Everywhere But The Shelf…

Sharing is caring!

Hi Friends!

The last few years have given rise to a popular little toy called Elf on a Shelf.  The Elf is supposed to act as a special agent of Santa’s to help him manage his naughty or nice list, by watching over children during the day and then reporting back to the North Pole at night.

Each year it always sounds like a fun thing to get involved in, and I really love hearing some of my friends’ stories regarding their Elves’ antics at their home, but An Elf on the Shelf has yet to make it’s wide-eyed way into our home. Why you ask?

1. Considering that I have forgotten to put my Tooth Fairy wings on a time or two (but who’s counting!), I’m sure that Elf would turn up in the same place more than once after I’ve overslept and forgot to move him (yikes)!

2. The Elf on the Shelf is just not dependable! I would like for the Elf on the Shelf’s availability to expand beyond Christmas, because lets face it kids misbehave all throughout the year.

3. Fine, I’ll admit it that the Elf’s odd, blank stare scares me a bit!

Despite all of this, I located and decided to include some funny ways to pose an Elf on the Shelf (if you have one).  If you don’t have one, what are your reasons for not succumbing to the trend? If you do have one of these red dressed spies within your home, could you please share some fun and interesting ways that you have posed your Elf?

Kudos to you for not 'caving' into the Elf craze. It was fun for a year or two, but now its another stress in my life. I think this will be the last year for our "Max" since Kolten is questioning the whole Santa/Elf thing. I guess I better make this year special (ohhh the pressure!). Max has toilet papered our bathroom and played in flour in the kitchen. Even though the fishing in the toilet is a little gross, I think my 'potty-humor' boy will love it!
