So at our house we have a "Grinch" instead of an Elf on the Shelf. It just made more sense to us because of the practical jokes...and because I'm a cornball like that.
|His first morning back|
|He made a tree in my kitchen|
|Then toilet papered our tree|
|The little sign says "Emma did it"|
|He left her some fun balloons|
|Stayed up playing cards with his buddies|
|Went for a plain ride|
|Gift wrapped the toilet (this was really not an easy one)|
|Played a joke on Emma|
|Built us a snowman|
|Played guitar for us|
|Made a train out of shoes...the day of our train ride|
|Relaxed in our crock pot|
|Entered a sack race|
|Put on a ballerina costume the day we saw the Nut Cracker|
|Watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas|
|Reading The Night Before Christmas to his mates|
He really is a rascal! I've done one every day but haven't remembered to always snap a pic. Emma is quick to get up now to see what Grinchy has done. She loves to see what kind of trouble he caused. I figure as long as she believes then I'll try to keep the magic going.
P.S. Pinterest has some really ideas!
