the adventures of a mischievous little elf :)

so, this post is for our new family addition (drumroll, please)….ELFY! we were so very fortunate to adopt our own little elf this year πŸ™‚ now naming his was not an easy feet. i mean, ive never known an elf before so i didnt know what would be a proper name. hahaha well luckily our daughter is so very creative and came up with the completely original name of elfy. honestly she is very creative, so i was rather surprised with the end result. if you are currently reading this and wondering if i am feeling ok and why the heck i am talking about elves…well, you must live under a rock because “elf on the shelf” is this years “tickle me elmo”. its huge! everyone has an elf πŸ™‚ if you still dont know what im talking about then follow this link and read up on the tradition of the “elf on the shelf”. he has helped keep my daughter in check on multiple occasions. elfy reports her good behavior every night to “the boss” and then comes back and is in a new location when she wakes up. if she has had a rough day and doesnt have very many good things to report then he does not go see santa and then stays in his same spot. we have sadly had to do this already. i am personally having so much fun trying to think of new locations for elfy to magically appear each morning πŸ™‚ the silly little elf made us donuts the other night while we were sleeping! hes taken a little ride in a sleigh as well as an rc car and yesterday had a little photo shoot with a few princess! hahaha here are some photos of elfys shenanigans…
