Alfie, our Elf on the Shelf, has been very busy lately. He still has some last minute landings – like in the light fixture over the bathroom mirror – but you don’t need to see a photo of that! Here are 5 of his latest adventures for High Five for Friday!
1. Last weekend, Alfie decided to take a pirate ship out for a ride!
2. Alfie was very excited that some of the Christmas decorations came out of storage and that the stockings were hung up. While he landed in Connor’s stocking, Connor thought it would be pretty neat if he also landed in the rest of the family’s stockings as well – (ummm – yeah! I am all over that!)
3. For this one, I blatantly stole the idea from a post over at The Jenny Evolution where she gives credit here. It is great to see everyone’s different ideas, but sometimes they seem so impossible. But this one I could totally do, just like they did! I have found that setting up some of Alfie’s adventures on this large wooden tray has helped a lot. I can still place the tray up high away from little hands (and maybe some cats) although the cats for the most part seem to be leaving Alfie alone. Maybe the cats see something at night that we don’t???
Connor has been asking lots of questions about all the other elves that visit other kid’s houses. Apparently he heard that some of the other elves are messy. He was very quick to clarify that his friends’ houses aren’t messy – it is just the elf getting into trouble. He seemed glad that our elf didn’t make any messes! Thank goodness indeed!
5. However, I think he might be trying to eat out snowman from the gingerbread house………..
