Elf on the Shelf: Week 1

Our Elf on the Shelf arrived the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Already he has been quite busy helping us get ready for Christmas!

He arrived via rocket ship!  I constructed the rocket-ship out of scrapbook paper after seeing a template at Sweet Paper Trail. It was too adorable not to try!

He also delivered 23 wrapped Christmas and winter books that we tuck away from this very occasion.  Apparently we own two copies of the Night before Christmas thus `Alfie wrapped up two together and we had 23 packages. He usually brings a whole box of goodies on December 24th so I am sure one more book won’t be missed!

Next he hid amongst the glass ware in the dining room to check out dinnertime behavior!

During November we had a gratitude tree in the living room.  Basically it was a dead tree branch from the yard stuck in a bucket of rocks.  The kids and I cut out paper leaves and wrote down things we were grateful for.  When Alfie arrived he swapped out the leaves for silvery stars!

While we all know that the Elf on the Shelf can fly, Alfie took Dusty the airplane for a ride around the kitchen. Clearly Alfie did not consider the blog when he landed in a spot that gave a clear shot of the new walls and ceiling – sans crown molding!

Alfie, did get into a bit of mischief as we have seen other Elves on the Shelf do!  He got caught up in the slinky!  Not to worry – no messes and he was able to escape in time to get back to the North Pole to see Santa.

I am sure Alfie will be up to many more adventures this upcoming week too!
