Elf Magic

Monday, November 30, 2009
Last year we bought an Elf for Kaylyn. It was so much fun! Has anyone else seen these? Basically the Elf is very mischievous and gets into all kinds of "trouble." For instance last year Kaylyn went to bed and when she woke up the next morning she found her Elf sitting in her chair eating popcorn and watching one of Kaylyn's favorite movies. Of course the popcorn was all over the place! So the Elf has a little fun while Kaylyn is sleeping...and her Elf is only here during the Christmas Season.

Kaylyn's Elf is named Oakley and he looks like this. I had planned on getting Oakley out again this year but was going to wait another week or so. However, on our way home this afternoon Kaylyn asked if Santa was going to send her Elf back this year. I said that it was very possible. She said that she missed Oakley and knew it was time for Santa to send him and watch over her. She made me promise to "email" Santa on Monday while she was in school to find out when Oakley would arrive. Obviously I am thinking he will need to arrive soon! dear blogger friends, I need some ideas of how Oakley can show up as well as some things he can get into. Hopefully when Oakley does show up I can post some pictures!

That is such a CUTE idea!!! LOL, I love it!


Thanks for coming by my blog today! My nephew has an elf named Rudy, and here are a few of the things we did last year (or maybe this is more than a few)...

Make sugar cookies and took tiny bites out of about 6 of them. We put flour on the counter top and make it look like he made a mess.

Painted my brother-in-laws toenails one night and pretended the Elf did it (This one was hysterical!)

Used a Starbucks cup and put the elf in the car, pretended to crash it into the garbage can and had the elf driving

Put my nephews socks and underwear all over the Christmas tree

Took his cars and lined them up around the Christmas tree

Set up a tent and let him camp on the back porch

Oh my... the possibilities are endless! Have a great time with it. I think we have more fun coming up with things than the kids do pretending!

Alicia- what an awesome idea! I think I am going to try that with the boys! I am coming back later to read what others have come up with!


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog...I think that is too cute about the elf!! What a fun idea for keeping the magic alive!!
