Strumpet's Crumpets is not really a mommy blog hahaha by any means, but I do have Eli, my soon to be step son (hate the step connotation - thanks a lot Disney!) Anyways, I LOVE all my time spent with Eli and I LOVE getting his mind going! Brian's mom gave us the Elf On The Shelf book last year, it is the BEST gift ever! Ever! I don't know who has more fun, me or Eli?! haha! He named our elf Pitt and Pitt showed back up after Halloween. Since then he brought a bunch of buds with him! I don't really follow the book or website of Elf on the Shelf, but the book does have a great explanation for kids - no touching the elf, behave because the elf is looking, etc. I have a whole Flickr set just for our crazy elves! Our elves leave Eli teeny tiny notes ;) Sometimes the elves get a bit nutty!
I know Eli is growing up and honestly I'm not sure he totally believes, but boy does he get excited every morning to see where the elves have moved or if there's any new guys! Sometimes I think he just goes along with it for me haha! One day we'll have a good laugh about it ;) We staying up late, trying to think of a clever hiding spot, the image of me climbing on furniture and the counter to get the elves in tricky places - haha! Can't wait to have more kiddos and have Eli help me hide the elves!
Do you do Elf on the Shelf?
If you're an aunt or uncle or best bud you should get this for a kid in your life - it is amazingly fun!
If you have any clever ideas please pass em along to me and everyone in the comments!!
Thank you and have a very wonderful weekend! :)Pin It
