So anyone else have this nasty little fella wreaking their house for X-mas

Ours has TP'd the Christmas tree, ate some chocolate donuts, got into my son's piggy bank, tried to escape from the house, wrote on the bathroom mirror with toothpaste and a few other things.

Yup- the one here seems bi-polar. Nice one day, naughty the next. Brought a couple of gifts, but got into candy like it was a hot tub.

We have the elf but I never understood why the "elf" makes a mess. I don't remember reading anything like this in the book. Why would I want to make a mess just to have to clean it up after?

Our elf just moves from shelf to shelf or sits on a branch of our Christmas tree.

Maybe you could have a "stern talk" with your elf so he/she will stop making messes

I'm with Simply - I never understood why people would go to the trouble of having the "elf" make a big mess, only to then have to clean it up. I thought the point was that he/she hangs around the house to make sure that the kids are staying on the nice list. I thought he/she got moved around the house so that the kids would believe it's a magical elf. I only just started hearing about the things that some of these elves do and it reminds me of the movie, "Goodfellas". You know, where Karen talks about the FBI guys coming over to her house and how she's very polite, but some of the wives spit on the floor in protest. She says, "She spit on her own floor and then she had to clean it up. Her own floor. I never understood that."

What about the clown from Stephen King's IT. That was the first scary clown I remember.

This year I got the Elf. It happened after I heard my 9 year old DS say in a most hopeful voice, "Oh I hope we get an Elf on the Shelf this year!"

I heard that and thought about his age and how this is almost over for him. How he never asks for anything...and I got the Elf.

BUT...there is NO WAY IN HELL that our Elf (Chippy) is going to do naughty things. He only did that once- got into the cupcakes and this was followed by my boys getting into the cupcakes at 7:30am. So...frig that!

He went skiing down our steps (straws for skis), made a snow angel in sugar, jumped in the blender to suggest having a smoothie for breakfast (and they did) and the other morning we woke up and there he was with Frosty and a Llama, playing Monopoly. Frosty was cleaning house!

Our friends have a naughty Elf and the 9 year old implored, "Samantha! Stop being so naughty!"

Anyway. He is here to monitor their behavior and they get a kick out of where he will be next.

oh I love the idea of him playing a board game.

I think tonight we plan on having him slide down a string holding onto a candy cane.

DDIL (7.5 months pregnant) loves the idea of the 'cute' little Elf on the Shelf, so I gave her my Barnes & Noble account information to buy one at a discount.

DS, however, was raised by the warped Sad in AZ, so I fear there is going to be conflict in Christmas Future...


I promise to surround myself with amazing souls and love them fiercely.

I had blocked it out. Omg the teeth and the overall creepiness. We need a My Little Pony or Mickey Mouse on a shelf.

We have not one but 3. Yes, 3.

Last yr the kids bff's mom gifted our kids with one. We named him Bobo Noel (in truth SI named him).

Ds' preschool class made one and the two elves hung out together. No mischief.

After xmas the elf ds made, flemming, left with Bobo Noel to my locker at work....oops, I mean, the North Pole.

Dd wanted a girl so this year we got a girl. Dd named her Ahnishka.

I bought xmas lights. Kids were bad so I wasnt going to put the lights up. Damd elves put the lights up. Now thing with the lights I bought 2 strands of led drops. I thought they were clear. Well one set of 200 was yellow and the other set was a blinding white.

I was going to add blue lights but I woke up and there is a strand of colored lights, mostly red and half of them blinking. I think the elves and wh had a few too many last night

Normally my elves hang out and move from one spot to another.

The sitters elf is the trouble maker. He broke an ornamemt. He made a mess in the bakingflower. Yesterday, tho, Iin front off all the kids, her 3 yr old grandson threw the elf down the stairs.


People tell you exactly who they are...why expect them to be what they are not

It's interesting that this has become such a big deal. When I was a kid in the 70's My mom had an elf that went on the tree near the top that watched us, and to report back to Santa but all of this having him do stuff is crazy.

If I did this with my daughter she would have needed therapy. She didn't even like the big guy in the red suit, and at 14 is still creeped out by anyone in a character costume.

I do have a friend that runs a high end beauty shop and they have one there, and have been posting his shennanigans on Facebook, and his are all adult themed, and crack me up.

Our elf is named Chip. Last year we got really creative with him. Since the A happened and we are on the D train, Chip has been kind of lazy. I at least try to move him every day.

Last year one of my favs was when Chip stole my car. I guess it was too cold to fly back to Santa. I CAREFULLY parked the car in the front yard against a tree and left Chip on the wheel

We have "Joy" and he is only rarely naughty…and mostly just because he got into candy.

Joy brings a few things early from Santa, like a lollipop in their stockings, and brings a "You are on the nice list" with some "Santa Hot Chocolate" on Christmas Eve.

Oh..well…he DID take the money the ToothFairy left for my DD. But, he gave it back the next day.

Mostly he just moves spots every night. Only once did he forget to move

I like this idea so much better! I think I'll have to do something like this next year.
