Do you have an Elf on the Shelf who lives in your house this time of year? We do. His name is Phinneous Phin. Bean loves finding him. She's a little scared of him, so we had to say that he doesn't hide in anyone's bedroom at night to avoid nightmares of him landing on her head while she's sleeping. This morning we caught Phinneous attempting to take my bottle of wine to give to Santa.
Even if you don't have an Elf, you have to read this blog post about over achieving Elf on the Shelf mommies. I was laughing out loud at this post. Although admittedly it inspired us to have our Elf do more funny things. I don't think I'll ever have the time or desire to make it look like he baked cookies or had a marshmallow fight like those over-achievers. But it is more fun to find him in precarious, naughty, or dangerous places around the house. Happy Holidays!!
