How many of you are having fun with Elf on a Shelf?

Elf-on-a-shelf-kit-kat-funI kept seeing so many fun ideas on Pinterest for Elf on a Shelf, so I decided to bring home an elf for our family. 

Our son would have LOVED this when he was little.. but we didn't know about this tradition then.  Even though he's 22 now, each day when my husband and our son finds the elf somewhere in the house, they SMILE and that just warms my heart!

I love it when I can make my hubby and son smile, so bringing this elf home to our house this year certainly accomplished that!  :)

 I will be archiving our Elf on a Shelf antics on my Pinterest Board here.

The elf hides around the house each day, and waits to be found.. it's really fun to see what he is up to each day!

Here are some of the places our elf has been hanging out:


Some days our elf just hangs out and does fun things, and some days he brings little gifties!


Whohooo!! Elf brought another penguin for our Christmas Penguin collection! 

He was hiding in Jason's stocking!


By the way, our Elf's name is Carlito ... Jason named him :)


Below... uh oh... Carlito got into some mischief today!!!


Now remember.. our son is over 21... I am sure Carlito knows that! :)



And of course... what holiday would be complete without a little stamping.. such a silly elf!


 Leave me a comment below and tell me what your elf has been up to!

oh, and how is this for fun... I saw this idea on Pinterest as well.. cheerios as elf donuts!!

Thanks for the much needed laugh! Merry Christmas!

This is a wonderful idea! We had a butterfly that 'magically' flew from room to room 'watching the boys' for Santa to check their behavior. It was great fun and having the butterfly 'fly' while they were in the same room and didn't see - well, the looks on their faces was wonderful! My thee sons are now grown and have their own children but I still have a butterfly and she sits on one of my plants to make me smile at the memories.

Wishing you a happy day!

Thanks for the fun, your pictures have me smiling wide! Our elf did such a great job of hiding last year after Christmas, that we can't find him. We have the empty box...he's got to be around here somewhere!

Love where elf, I mean Carlito has been hanging out. Its fun that even adults can have fun. I think we are going to have to get one of those elf's for next year!

Too cute is Carlito! I love that you have him surprising you daily without children in the household. Good for you! Who couldn't use a little 'elfin attitude' in their lives?

Merry Christmas!


You have some cute/clever situations for Carlito. I too bought an elf this year, but so far she hasn't been having many adventures.


What great idea's Patty, I loved all your idea's :)

Carol Carriveau

Wow, Carlito sure has been busy in his relatively shirt stay at your house, thanks for the giggles!
