This year our family ventured into the world of Elf on a Shelf! We read the book on the first night, explaining what the elf was there for and it said to give him a name. Chris wanted to name him Fred! Peyton wanted Doodle. So we compromised and named him Froodle! My kids thought he was so fun! He was silly and nice and tricky and fun! We were glad to have him! He's spend each day in one of the kids stockings, sitting by watching, when he'd get back from the North Pole that night, he'd hide so the kids could find him, then the next day, after they'd seen where he was hiding, it was on to the next kids stocking!
Night 1: He wanted them to watch the Polar Express so he made "tracks" from the dvd rack, to the dvd player so they knew to watch the movie:)
Night 2: He hung our Christmas window sticky's up for us!
Night 3: Toilet papered the Christmas tree.
Night 4: Reading stories to the kids toys:)
Night 5: Snowball (marshmallow) fight!
Night 6: He got stuck in the cheeto puff balls container.
Night 7: Zip lining through the front room on a candy cane!
Night 8: Dancing/hugging/kissing (depending on which kid you asked) with the angel.
Night 9: Sneaking some cookies and drinking all the milk.
Night 10: Watching the pictures run through the computer screen saver.
Night 11: Bungee jumping from the ceiling fan from a licorice rope.
Night 12: Candy cane fishing for cracker goldfish in the bathroom sink.
Night 13: Jamming to some Christmas toons!
Night 14: Acrobatics from Charly's floor mat on the ceiling fan.
Night 15: Bringing the nice kids candy canes.
Night 16: Trying to fit in the ginger bread house :(
Night 17: Using the coat hooks as monkey bars.
Night 18: Froodle is a Boise state fan:)
Day 19: Bubble (marshmallow) bath!
Day 20: Froodle was nice enough to wrap all our presents for us!
This was his final act as our elf for this year! We had fun while he was here and look forward to having him back again next year.
