Or maybe Reindeer on the Roof? Do you have a Snowman in a Snowglobe? (Okay, I don’t think such a thing exists, yet). But I think you get my point.
Now just to avoid myself getting a bunch of negative comments about my Bah-Humbug Christmas attitude, I really do like the idea and premise of the Elf on the Shelf. If I had more energy, I probably would have done this with my own girls when it first came out. But I knew that the Elf would have stayed in the same exact spot, because I would forget to move it, and then how do I explain that?
And I really do not need to stress about where in the world I am going to put it each night. I do not have the patience to pose him in my cupboards, playing in the sugar bowl, or hiding in the cat food dish. Why in the world would I just create another mess that I am going to have to clean up?
So for those of you who do this with your children, I hope you have great fun and come up with new ideas on where your Elf is going to be each night.
As for me, I will get to see all of my friends and family’s Elf pictures as it makes its way to a new destination each night 🙂 Whether this is a good thing, or a bad thing, I will leave that up to you to decide 🙂
On a side note, why in the world couldn’t I think of something this clever? I would be set for life 🙂
