Elf on the Shelf


What is with this thing? I was all excited to grab our Elf on the Shelf at Barnes and Noble and start a little Christmas tradition every year. But the more I see this little dude, the more I'm not so sure if his intentions are for good or evil. Elfie reports to Santa how naughty and/or nice the little ones are being everyday. Every morning Mia wakes and sees Elfie in a different spot. And then she proceeds to run in the other direction. There is something very sinister about his gaze. Pete says he woke up at 3 am the other night to hear Latin chanting from somewhere in the living room. He flicked on the light, and the Elf on the Shelf smiled back. He might be the Elf in the Trash soon. I'm thinking a little Rudolph would be a lot less creepy.

So a girlfriend of mine blogged about bringing her "elf on the shelf" out last year. Not only did she not share up close pics of such thing... she is also entertaining a trio of boys.

Here's her blogs form last year:

My suggestion is that you break out your "Crafty MaMa" & make your own cute lil pixie elf for Mia! Then you have a year or two before you can make Kai is rad lil skully elf. Modernize the concept & get rid of that creepy thing MaMa ;)

Juli I'm loving the blog with the elf! Pete and I were talking about suspending him over Mia's bed one morning. But that would just not be right.
