Elf On The Shelf Ideas, Quick and Easy Ideas for your Christmas Family Tradition of Elf on the Shelf. What to so with your silly Elf, Day 19 Day 19 ~ Looks like he likes the mini marshmallows and jumped right in
Elf On The Shelf Ideas, Quick and Easy Ideas for your Christmas Family Tradition of Elf on the Shelf. What to so with your silly Elf, Day 20Day 20~ He climbed on top the doll house and brought the kids a special treat, a gingerbread house kit.

Day  1 ~ Was rocking in the baby swing with a new Christmas Ornament for her

Day 2 ~ On the sewing machine sewing a Christmas stocking “Elf Sized” 

Day 3~ Trying to cut down a pineapple with a plastic knife 

Day 4 ~ Playing Dr with Lalaloopy Dolls and getting into trouble with band-aids 

Day 5 ~ Hiding in the advent calendar my 9 year old daughter made out of paper.

Day 6 ~ Our Elf was a volunteer fireman last night and was getting training from Fireman Sam and Batman.

Day 7~ Hanging out in our big “B” watching over baby Jesus… the kids put a candy cane in the manger with baby Jesus they thought he might like a treat

Day 8~ n the couch with BOTH of our xbox remotes, and a half eaten bag of mint Oreos…. Someone had a fun night :) The kids were not to happy that they could NOT play any games on the xbox today…in fear of touching the elf.

Day 9 ~ It took the kids while to find our Elf today… he was hiding on the shelf in a giant conch shell, it gave the kids a good giggle when they finally found him.

Day 10 ~ The kids found our Elf  hanging out on the bathroom vanity doors, they said he was in “Jail” for the day.

Day 11~ He was putting up lights in the kitchen and looks like he got a little tangled up.

Day 12 ~ Our Elf climbed up on the top of our hutch and was trying to paint  a picture.  But the picture he was painting was one my husband made when he was a little boy.

Day 13 ~ Smuckers sent us a wonderful package of goodies for the Holidays, I guess our Elf could not wait to jump in and enjoy  them.  He was snacking on a spoonful of Jif peanut butter this morning.

Day 14 ~ Chubs (yes he is a boy) found Princess Anna and Queen Elsa and are playing dress up.  My kids are convinced he is the silliest Elf EVER and sure are glad me makes us smile every day.  He made himself his very own dress out of scraps from the Elsa Dress I made my daughter for Halloween.

Day 15~ We have an empty manger in our home and when the kids do something kind they get to put a piece of straw in it, to make a nice bed for baby Jesus on Christmas.  Our Elf must have done something kind last night cause this morning we found him putting some straw in it.

Day 16 ~ Our Elf made a candy cane chain and got a little hung up in it.

Day 17~ He was in the tree and wrote the kids a note to tell them to clean their rooms, and help Mom with the house.

Day 18 ~ my 4 older kids are in LOVE with their new baby sister, Each morning they RUN down the stairs to find the Elf and then go grab their baby sister to show her were he is.  I find it absolutely adorable…. I love moments like this. Pretty sure she has no clue what that little red thing is, but she sure loves to look at him with her family and giggle with delight as they share making memories together. Today he was peeking out a a roll of paper towels in the kitchen.
