Anyone else do Elf on the Shelf?? I know at least a couple of you do! Wanna share pics?
Our Elf's name is Sock. (Carson was 2 when he named him...) Today is Sock's 3rd day here since returning from the North Pole.
On the day that he showed up, he put the star on the top of the tree for us.IMG_7863-2web by Stephanie.Miller, on Flickr
For the second day, he hung out in Carson's stocking, per his request the day before.IMG_7873-2web by Stephanie.Miller, on Flickr
And today, he fixed the Choo Choo Express ornament that Jackson broke while putting the ornaments on the tree. Again...per Carson's request IMG_8034-2blog by Stephanie.Miller, on Flickr
We don't, but I really, really want to!
We are doing it. I will try to upload some photos with my "big girl camera" soon. Most are on my phone on instagram. So thankful you have a helpful elf. Mine is just plain NAUGHTY!
Here is Jingle Bells- sorry for the NOISY photos. Taken on 3200 reduced noise with nosieware, but it's still bad
She was quite naughty....she toilet papered the tree.DSC_1323_filtered_web by sadieruth, on Flickr

She loves Pepsi!DSC_1315_filtered_web by sadieruth, on Flickr
And I failed to take a pic with my big girl camera so instagram will have to do!
She bathed in some marshmallows. When we came home....she (or our dog Jack) ate them all! LOL!IMG_20121205_202402 by sadieruth, on Flickr
AND she put our undies up and put our stockings in our undies drawer!IMG_20121203_060211 by sadieruth, on Flickr
Here's some more. Sock has been a little more lazy this year than he was last year

Just on the counter today. Carson was [thisclose] to seeing me move him last night!! He came out right as I was trying to find a new place......

Jingle Bells started out with a bang and has been a bit lazy. She was [thisclose] to being caught today too. I was sick and didn't remember last night. I remembered first thing this morning and usually Randall already has Ruthie up. Luckily he didn't today!
She slept in Ruthie's bed b/c she had her cousin over and they were loud in the living room. Jingles Bells didn't want to be interrupted!DSC_1391 by sadieruth, on Flickr
She read to the red & green ranger and two of Ruthie's dolls from her dollhouse. She also fell over and we read in the "manual" that we can pick her up with tongs if there is an emergency! LOL!IMG_20121206_214315 by sadieruth, on Flickr

And, she watched some Veggie Tales this morning!IMG_20121210_064731 by sadieruth, on Flickr
Thanks for sharing the pictures everyone they are cute, we sadly had to pass on doing this since we have two animals that would love to snack on elves.
I pretty much keep the elf out of reach for the kids. The closest they've been up until today was on the bathroom counter. Jackson couldn't reach without a step stool. Carson knows to leave him alone, but I don't trust Jackson yet. Today, he's in the fireplace with the mesh closed. Definitely testing Jackson today

Shaving - The shaving cream looked much better the night before IMG_8424-2web by Stephanie.Miller, on Flickr
Santa??IMG_8519-2web by Stephanie.Miller, on Flickr
CUTE! How did you put him on the wall? I think I am going to steal the shaving cream one for tonight!
I used a nail that was already in the wall. But we were talking about how you could probably use those command hooks.
She brought them an ornament for this year. She wrapped them and put them under the three with a letter.IMG_20121210_220150 by sadieruth, on Flickr

She was hanging from the mantle with a dry erase marker:IMG_20121212_072022 by sadieruth, on Flickr
And this is what she did:IMG_20121212_070636 by sadieruth, on Flickr
