Only one week away and Malia Peppermint Pattie and Charley our scout elves return from the North Pole. Last Thanksgiving night The 4-Crow's were summoned by the doorbell and found a visitor from the North Pole. The visitor was nameless at the time, but soon became know as Malia Peppermint Pattie. 2011 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.
It was that year that we hosted a daily link up where we asked our readers to show us the daily activities of their elf. In 2012 we hosted a weekly link up, showcasing a full 7 days of elf fun. Our Charley, had to semi 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 the last two years of linkups and see what kinds of fun our scouts have around our nest.
Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? Won't you please link up and play along once a week until December 26th? 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 linkup form that I will provide each week. I look forward to seeing all of the Elf games and fun you are having!
As an added bonus this year and to help keep me a little more organized since I am now working two jobs from home, I have made myself an Elf on a Shelf Calendar. Feel free to use my ideas or print out the blank form for your own use.
