Elf on the Shelf Ideas

I must say, I loved the idea of the Elf on the Shelf.  However, what I’m not loving is the pressure to deliver every night!  It has turned into a case of keeping up with the Jones’ and instead of “my kid is better than your kid” it has become “my elf is better than your elf”.

I try to keep the elf hijinks somewhat simple, yet cute.  Walter can’t get into too much trouble; I think he should be setting somewhat of an example since he is supposed to be reporting back to Santa on my kids behavior.  Here are a few of my favorite things we found Walter doing last year:

Taking a cruise in the sports car
Curling up with Pooh Bear for story time
Roasting marshmallows
Going to the drive in theater with another elf friend

Mixing up some reindeer food

Walter makes his return tomorrow, I can’t wait to see what he gets himself up to this year!
