Last year was our first year to participate in the Elf on the Shelf tradition. We didn't exactly have a "real" Elf on the Shelf, so I called our daily link up Elf on a Shelf. We had Charley, a 40+ year old Whitman's Chocolate Candy Elf.
In 2011 we hosted a daily link up where we asked our readers to show us the daily activities of their elf. This year we will be doing only a weekly link up, showcasing a full 7 days of elf fun. Our Charley, I decided, had to retire. He is still a part of our household, but because he is "vintage", I decided he no longer needed to be serving in any reindeer games. He is actually pictured in the above button, see his rips? You can read more about Charley here, also feel free to visit last years 24 days of linkups and see what all kinds of fun he had around our nest.
Would you like to see what Malia has been up to the past 7 days around our nest?
Day 1: Oh dear, she evidently didn't like all red & green bulbs on the ceramic tree....
Day 2: She opened the new lantern I got at A Christmas Gathering at The Church at BattleCreek and started rearranging the balls.
Day 3: She thought the new cupcake ornaments I made looked yummy enough to eat!
Day 4: She decided to put the ribbon garland on the tree herself.
Day 5: She decided to hide "high" from Kaybrie. It didn't work.
Day 6: She thinks this chair is just the right size and candy canes are her favorite food of course.
Day 7: She wandered into Miss Kaybrie's room to admire the star creation that is now adorning all of our bedroom trees. And yes, that is a purple tree.
Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? Won't you please link up and play along once a week until December 27th? You can share seven pictures, a few, or just one of your favorite Elf moments/memories of the week. All you have to do is grab the above button and put your blog link in the following linkup form. I look forward to seeing all of the Elf games and fun you are having!
