In 2012, our Elf got wilder and more creative with his escapades.
Elfie, our crazy elf, arrived via climbing the windows with suction cups.
Playing Battleship, although he seems more concerned about spelling his name.
He colored the hotel mirrors with reindeer noses and elf hats all over the mirrors.
We found Elfie watching Christmas movies and popcorn all over the floor from the kitchen to the living room.
It looks like a game of Scrabble solely using Christmas words.
Elfie continued to send us messages with scrabble tiles.
Enjoying some hot chocolate with a crazy straw and marshmallows every where.
One mischievous Elf replaced all our Christmas stockings with underwear.
Elfie is also very crafty as he created a pipe cleaner version of himself.
One day he showed up with this straw building set.
And kept creating new structures.
Then he took all our framed photos and colored Elf outfits on each of us.
He and his cohorts in crime playing Munchkin.
It looks like a wild party night that ended with a Christmas tree made out of light up bracelet sticks.
The 2011 adventures of Elfie, our Christmas Elf……

The gloves must go along with his sock obsession.
weeee. A ride on the the fan is must.
Snowball fight with marshmallows and pillows as bunkers.
Decorating the tree with socks.

An “Elfie Jar”. Just like at school, for every compliment the jar fills with poof balls. When the jar is full they get a class party. Elfie appears to believe he already deserves a party.
Elfie dressed the bear in his pajamas and slippers.
Elfie is quite the artist.
Our Elf couldn’t resist the underwear tree.

The animals all playing I Spy – the card game.
Riding on decorations.
Reading to the other animals in a pillow/sheet fort.
Disguised as Boba Fett or did Elfie get stuck?

He TP’d the hotel room. Oh boy!

Meet our Elf – “Elfie”. He is no Elf on the Shelf. Sure he gets into plenty of mischief but he is loved and held. Santa sends him around the beginning of December and he returns with Santa on Christmas Eve. As much havoc as he creates, he is still cherished as part of our Christmas holidays.
The following are some of his crazy antics from back in 2009.
Whenever Elfie sees packing peanuts, he thinks he is playing in snow. We find them every where.
We found him driving Harry’s remote control car.
He and Goofy decided to play Star Wars ships.
He got into my cotton balls and made a snowman.
He dressed up all of Harry’s animals in Christmas themed attire.
A “snowball” fight with cotton balls.
Meet “Super Elfie”.
Elfie left a a mess when he decided to create a Christmas paper chain.
Our Elf seems to have a bit of a shoe obsession. He is always trying on different shoes and socks.
And then we found Elfie at my computer. He created a ridiculous holiday video of us as elves.
Harry has the important job of taking care of the baby tortoises at school. They sure are cute.

Is that a Beatnik? No, that is just Harry practicing the AltoSaxophone.
Sand sculptures of remembrance.
It is hot. Really hot.
Time to live in the ocean.

First day of school.
I created this with various Halloween supplies I had lying around ( bingo cards, stars, stickers, tags, boxes, ribbon, glittered trees, bells, plastic spiders, plastic skeletons) with the addition of some photos (both in color and black and white). When it comes together, it creates a fun decoration.
Another holiday, another excuse for photo cubes. Can you hear me singing “I just can’t get enough?”. You can see my other cubes here and here.
Halloween cube photo ideas:
pumpkin patch adventures
Halloween/ costume parties
spooky looking skies
Start by using 2″ square cubes from Michaels, JoAnn’s or even online. Cut various patterned Halloween paper into 2″ x 2″ squares. Find those precious October/ Halloween photos and cut into 2″ x 2″ squares. Adhere with Modge Podge or Aleene’s tacky glue using a foam brush. Finally, you have the perfect Halloween keepsake for a table or shelf.
