she lacked the upper-body strength to pull herself back up the rope.
didn’t know, is that Santa doesn’t negotiate with plastic terrorists.
I love this last one my clever friend, Kristin, created last year. I think Faith will probably be doing the same soon, considering she’s been on a green smoothie kick.
I ordered our Elf on the Shelf from Nordstrom last year…that way I could keep her a secret from the kids (who always seem to be with me when I shop!) I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner…every year we have the hardest time sneaking away to shop for the kid’s Santa gifts, or trying to smuggle them in the house unnoticed! Now I just order from Nordstrom’s cool toy department, and it arrives here completely undetected! I love their selection of classic and current toys, and you can’t beat the free shipping!
Now I just have to find a place to hide them until Christmas! Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? You can follow along with this year’s shenanigans on InstaGram.
MJ (Demarcus Murray Jr = MJ we're huge Dallas Cowboys fans) came this morning, he was held up at the north pole. so going to have a snow ball fight this year,
omg too cute! i need to start doing this in a few years! xo jillian – stop by! I'm hosting a Freshly Picked Moccasin giveaway on cornflake dreams
I just cannot get behind the whole Elf on the Shelf thing. Working so many years in IT/data security has left me with a permanent tinfoil hat!! I feel like the whole thing is just a way to make kids comfortable with "big brother" style surveillance. My kids think I'm a fun hater, but I tell them I send Santa daily behavior reports via email. Parents watching = OK, unknown entity = bad. I'll crawl back into my dungeon now!
I am so thankful they were not around when my girls were little! LOL But, you can bet they will be for the grands some day!!
Our elf had the brilliant idea to return last year with 2 girl elves–now we have 3! My only saving grace is that they all travel together 🙂 They're toning it down this year, too, so far nothing too crazy!
Would have never thought of the panty raid and Kristin's idea! My kids would think both of those are hilarious!
Ahh I love the elf on the shelf!! I helped my mom with this a couple of years ago for my little brother and sister and I had way too much fun!! One of my favorites our elf (Cynthia) did was make elf pancakes! They were super tiny but adorable. I love this tradition, it is so much fun!
Those are SO cute!!! Great ideas! https://www.etsy.com/shop/BCcrafts101?ref=search_shop_redirect
So…I have yet to buy an Elf – but with these great ideas, I'm thinking I'll need to sneak an order in for Xmas 2015. Your Faith is something else, I LOVE your sense of humor. xo
Oh my goodness great ideas but your commentary is the best! And that last one of Kristin's…totally doing that! My friend Holly and I set up #unshelfyoelf2014 on instagram and we would love for you to use the hashtag if you feel inclined to share some of Faith's antics.
We just started this year and my son is crazy about Buddy our elf! I might have to copy some of these!
These are great! Thanks for sharing!
I'm in England. Until Monday, when I had coffee with a friend, I'd never heard of this. Now… not only have I chuckled my way through your post and forwarded it to said friend in case she's in need of ideas… I also want an elf for my shelf! 😀
Thank you for sharing in this article
I can learn a lot and could also be a reference
I hope to read the next your article updates

I live in Australia and didn't know that there was such a thing as Elf on a Shelf until it started popping up on some of the blogs I read last year. This year, I purchased my own elf (which was no easy feat in Australia) and named him Rupert. He's hasn't done anything too crazy yet. Also, I don't have kids, I just thought it looked like too much fun to miss out on! You can check out what Rupert's been up to via Instagram @nay_oh
