Elf on a Shelf 2015 Link- Up with The 4-Crow's Blog: The Introduction

Only one week away and Malia Peppermint Pattie, Charley our scout elves and their pet Frost return from the North Pole. Three Thanksgivings ago 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 given to us by Miss K's dance instructor Miss Pam. Then last year, a reindeer pet named Frost joined our nest in all the Elf fun.

In 2012, 2013 and 2014 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 three years of linkups and see what kinds of fun our scouts have around our nest.

We absolutely LOVE this tradition, so much that we even get to occasionally blog for Elf on the Shelf. See our posts here and here.

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? Won't you please grab the button below, 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 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!

Warning: I do post daily on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter. My follow buttons are over on the right side of my blog. If you do want to follow and post, I will use the following hashtags #CrowElf15 #4CrowsElfLinkup.

Last year in order to help keep myself a little more organized since my work load is crazier than ever, I made myself an Elf on a Shelf Calendar. I have once again made time to get organized. See below. Feel free to use my ideas or print out the blank form for your own use.
