Elf on the Shelf: December 1-6

**Please bear with me, I had planned to do this day by day and time got away from me! So this is Sunday-Thursday and is a very long post with a ton of pics!!**

December 1 - Eli the Elf arrived from the North Pole
the kids found him sitting in our fruit bowl holding a sign with their names on it! I told them that he had been waiting for them at the airport, but they got back from Tulsa too late, so mommy had to go pick him up!

December 2 - Eli the Elf the flying trapeze artist!
we woke up Sunday morning to find Eli hanging from our kitchen light fixture! It took Noah forever to find him, we had to say "look up all around!" once he spotted him, Noah was laughing and saying "How'd he get up there?" Jonah just wanted to pull him down!

Jamie reading the boys the letter Eli brought from Santa explaining why he is here - to demonstrate how God shows us Grace even when we misbehave and we can try to help Eli understand grace! 

Noah finding Eli!! 

December 3 - Eli reads Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer to some friends!
The page just happened to be turned to the Elf who wants to be a dentist :) The boys got a kick out of this, but not as much as Jamie who called me later to say that he laughed for 10 minutes after seeing the setup!

December 4 - Eli's "Flour" Angel
Not only did the crazy elf get into the flour, but he made the boys pancakes! Jonah kept saying "He messy mom" Noah loved that Eli had made the exact breakfast he wanted! *we may have read a book about Curious George making pancakes the night before :)

December 5 - Eli knows good oral hygiene!!
This was too funny!! Eli was sitting on the boys toothpaste like he was trying to get it was everywhere!! we left it set up for quite a while, until the boys were getting upset that the sink was a mess while they were trying to wash their boys are weird sometimes :) 

his face was smeared with toothpaste!

December 6 - Eli and the Red Samurai Power Ranger played see saw on a christmas decoration
The boys spent the night with Nana and Papa last night, so I sent them a picture of what Eli had been up also included the letter he wrote below...

Stay tuned for more Eli antics!! {This is so much fun!!!}


  1. I am so glad you guys are enjoying this. The boys will remember you doing this for them forever.
