More Elf on the Shelf

Today I wanted to share my last Elf of the Shelf post, with what the Elf has been up to at our home. :) I am sort of glad that it is almost Christmas, because this Elf on the Shelf business wears me out! Oh my! With all of the after school activities this week and class parties and my work party it takes my last ounces of energy to drag myself off the couch to work on Elf on the Shelf stuff!!! And, we have the activities from the Advent Calendar on top of that! Whew.


SO. Here we go. Also, if you don't already follow me on Instagram, you should! Click HERE so you can start following along to see what we are up to this Christmas holiday and to catch any last minute Elf activities at our house!
 

Elfie and Samantha Elf are back home from being at Grandma's for part of this week... The elves decided to play with the kids piggy bank money and made two hearts out of the coins. Elfie even got out the calculator and added up some coins. #hisugarplumelf
Both of the kids have piggy banks in their rooms, so the elves were naughty and got some change out of both and made heart shapes with the coins. They did one heart for each kid (because, they'd fight over it if I had only done one) and then messed around with the calculator, too!


The elves are bringing play dough with Christmas cutters I, gingerbread cookie dough and a hot Nutella cocoa bar in the crock pot tomorrow, so we have lots to do while we are snowed, err... Iced in all day! Look at what I am holding up, this is the elf Au
Every year the elves bring the kids Play Doh and I let them have at it with the Christmas Play Doh cutters. I am wondering if this will be a tradition I'll need to give up soon, at what age are kids too old to play with Play Doh? Autumn LOVED Play Doh last year and we bought her several kits, but not so much this year. Both kids really got into making Christmas shapes, though. I am holding up a Play Doh elf that Autumn made last year, I always keep their Christmas shapes and let them harden and then put them out on the table with the new Play Doh. It is so neat to see what they create each year and to look back at the old shapes. We also baked gingerbread cookies and made a batch of crock pot hot cocoa with nutella. Such a fun day!


Elfie was found with his candy cane pole trying to catch some fish this morning. Apparently there was a lot of fish out, because his bucket was full of fish. (And, I am sure this delicious cake will hit the spot later today for Mommy!!) #hisugarplumelffun
Elfie decided he wanted to do a little fishing. Isn't this cake adorable (that my hubby baked) with all of the little gold fish on it? Elfie's fishing pole is a candy cane with a Christmas hook and he has a little cup full of gold fish that he caught.


The elves must have had full bellies from toooo many cookies, because the kids found them in their bathroom like this!! Raisins in the potty and outside it, too and they has wayyy too much fun with the toilet paper. This produced lots of giggles from the
The elves must have had full bellies from toooo many cookies, because the kids found them in their bathroom like this!! Raisins in the potty and outside it, too and they has wayyy too much fun with the toilet paper. This produced lots of giggles from the kids. We do this one each year and last year I dyed the water green and in previous years I have used prunes instead of raisins! Autumn was concerned about leaving Elfie upside down all day, so we used the salad tongs to move him upright again before leaving the house for the day.


The darn elves are making Mommy mad!! They got in the kitchen and put bows evvverywhere!!! The kids were worried Mom would put the elves in time out so they got all the bows down with a back scratcher!! Lol! Talk about team work!! #hisugarplumelffun
Those elves are known for making messes! The darn elves made me a little mad!! They got in the kitchen and put bows evvverywhere!!! The kids were worried I would put the elves in time out so they got all the bows down with a back scratcher (Santa Cottage gift! LOL!)!! Lol! Talk about team work!!

 

Since the elves were naughty by putting bows all over the kitchen yesterday, I decided a little punishment was in order...!!  #hisugarplumelffun
Since I was so upset with the elves yesterday for making such a mess in my kitchen with bows, I decided to give them a subtle punishment. The kids felt so bad for the poor elves (ha!).

Well, I probably won't do anymore Elf on the Shelf posts, I'll just add any extra ones to this post. I can't believe that Christmas will have come and gone already by this time next week. It always goes by way too fast when you get into the final week!
