The Best Elf on the shelf ideas

I lalalalalalallalaLOVE Christmas. My favorite holiday E.V.E.R. But I will admit that I was late in the game with the Elf on the shelf. Everyone had one and I sorta refused to get the little guy for fear that it might be a huge pain in the ass. Well, I got the elf last year. And I was right .... it is a huge pain in the ass. But, I sorta, kinda, love it now and I must admit my kids are ecstatic when they wake up every morning to see this crazy elf. I have now taken the elf to another level as I try to outdo myself every night like one of those freaking pshyco over-the-top mothers. Take a look out our crazy elf for your own inspiration!

(P.S.) I will keep adding more of our elf pictures here and on my Instagram until Christmas Day
