Here are some photos of what our elf on the shelf, Candy Cane as we named him, was up to in 2014. Note these were originally posted on my other website www.wnydealsandtodos.com.
He got into the Halloween candy!!
So yesterday we tried making these adorable pom-pom animal crafts by the maker of Klutz. Well, I felt so klutzy, to say the least, and could not for the life of me figure it out (there are 20 steps in the book to making just the pom-pom)! Granted I was trying to get dinner done, the dishes loaded in the dishwasher, and check homework.
So after getting flustered I told the kids we would do the craft tomorrow after school. Well, when they awoke this morning they shrieked with glee because our dear Candy Cane had crafted up 2 pom-pom pets for each of them! He did a great job too if I do say so myself.
My kids came running into my bedroom shrieking with laughter over what the elf did last night! Absolutely priceless. I love this (somewhat creepy) elf creating memories for us.
Our elf popped today! Corny I know. 😁
Yesterday I heard those dreaded words “Mommy, the elf didn’t move last night!”. Ugh! Thankfully they were not home most of the day on Sunday, so I told them he probably didn’t have anything to report back to Santa because he didn’t see them!
Here are a few more pictures of our elf on the shelf from the past few days.
