Elf on the Shelf Roundup

We’re 12 days into our yearly visit from the Elf on the Shelf. I honestly don’t know how they come up with something new each night. They must be so exhausted! (*wink*) In case you’ve missed our famous Elf on the Shelf duo, Chintz and Jewel, and their crazy antics on Instagram or Facebook, here’s a [Read More]

109 Best Elf on the Shelf Names

Naming your Elf on the Shelf

Naming your elf is a very. big. deal. You could be stuck with a name like Hokey Pokey or (gasp) Elsa for many, many years if you don’t get in front of this whole Elf thing. You know that’s a strong possibility, right? Especially if you find you are a natural at the whole Elf [Read More]

Laundry Day

It’s kind of sweet that our Elf on the Shelf decided to do the princess dolls’ laundry today. Nice except that they are using Miracle Bubbles in the washing machine… reminds me of the Brady Bunch episode with the washing machine, LOL.  

Bad little lumberjack elves

I think Chintz and Jewel have recovered from the shunned weekend. They’re back to their usual no good. Take a look at how we found them this morning, just in the nick of time I might add… Chintz found Daddy’s saw and is trying to cut down our juniper tree — I presume to make [Read More]

Elf Drama

“Oh the DRAMA.” That’s what my friend Jeanan said when she found out what happened. She’s so right. It was drama. The Princess Cupcake got up on Saturday morning, hurried and got ready to leave for her early soccer game and FORGOT to look for her elves. Seriously! Can you believe it? After all that [Read More]

Peeping Elves

I bet you’re glad you don’t live next door to Chez Perot with the crazy peeping elf on the shelf. Chintz and Jewel stole Mommy’s camera with the long lens and the Princess Cupcake’s binoculars to get a better look at the neighbors across the street. That’s not creepy at all. I guess no more [Read More]

The Elfie Selfies Contest

Chintz and Jewel accidentally left their mobile phones under the tree last night when they flew back to the North Pole. You know we snooped. We saw something shocking. We thought WE were the only ones snapping photos of the little red devils around here. Turns out, they’re loading their partying ways online to share [Read More]

Downton Abbey Elf

The girls were getting their Downton on last night. I suspect that there’s not much time for watching the international hit while all that toy making is going on at the North Pole. Jewel, our girl Elf on the Shelf, and her bestie Barbie were all dolled up, using the good china and having a [Read More]

Elf keep-away

The puggies are not amused. Not at all. The Princess Cupcake’s Elf on the Shelf Chintz and Jewel stole all their doggie stuff last night and hid it in the oven, knowing full well we can’t get to it without touching them. Dog food, bowl, leash, greenies, and gasp — Beau Beau’s favorite toy. Beau Beau LOVES [Read More]

Swinger Elf

The Princess Cupcake woke up to a mess on the floor of her room. Her Elf on a Shelf, Chintz and Jewel, had ransacked her clean laundry and left a pile of it stewed all over. Then she noticed there was a trail of panties going down the hallway… And then as she came down [Read More]

Angry Birds Elf Edition

Uh yeah. The elves, Chintz and Jewel, apparently took some time out of their busy flight home to the North Pole to practice their skills at Angry Birds. Nice of them to stay out of the way of the maids – I had a hard enough time explaining to them what the Elf on the [Read More]

The Tunnel of Elf

Just another morning in elf-land. The elves Chitnz and Jewel barricaded the door to the Princess Cupcake’s room last night. She had fallen asleep on the sofa so it wasn’t until she woke up that she realized they had not only put up a wall full of boxes, they had installed a tunnel. For the [Read More]

Naughty Elves

I had a bad feeling about  our Elf on the Shelf Chintz and Jewel watching the Smurfs 2 co-starring the Naughties. After spending the entirety of Dallas Icepocolpse Day 1… unpacking from our recent move, the elves took all our bubble wrap that was so carefully folded and bubble wrapped the whole tree while we [Read More]
