Last year, we finally jumped on the Elf on the Shelf bandwagon. The boys had been
nagging incessantly asking for one for a while, so I caved and “Snowy” made his first appearance last December. At the time, I had seen people posting all sorts of clever EOTS (Elf on the Shelf) antics on Facebook, Pinterest, etc, and I decided that I should do some mischievous things with our elf, too. How hard could it be, right? I mean, people were posting pictures galore all over every social media outlet known to man……
And there lied my mistake.
I know some people just moved their elf nightly, which is what I should have done, but instead I started having Snowy do naughty little things right out of the gate. Last year he toilet papered our Christmas tree, colored our milk green, got himself tied up by some army guys and all sorts of other things that involved way too much planning and work. But by then I was committed, so I had to come up with a months worth of shenanigans for him to get into. I was so happy last year on Christmas Eve when it was all over.
On December 1st of this year, Snowy came back to our house and I was ready this year dammit. I spent a while on Pinterest gathering inspiration and without further adieu, here are a few of the things that Snowy got himself into this year:
He used one of the boys slinkies as a swing:
Somehow he managed to get trapped inside this jar by Ironman:
And then he went and got himself caught in Spiderman’s web:
He went rock climbing:
Here he is zip lining:
He thought it would be fun to drive a Monster Truck over a row of cars:
He redecorated our fridge:
One morning we found this cool Solo cup tree that he left for us:
He busted into a bag of M&M’s that I was saving for Christmas:
We caught him sledding down our banister in one of the kids plastic bowls:
He and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man had a game of Tic Tac Toe going one morning:
He managed to get stuck inside of our Frosted Flakes:
Here’s Snowy doing some acrobatics:
He played Angry Birds:
He drank up half of our syrup:
Snowy had big dreams of going skiing:
We found him all ready for a shower one morning:
And he even got into our ice cream:
So you have an Elf on the Shelf? What kinds of mischief does he get into?
