Elf on the shelf did not exist when my boys were in the "wonderment" years (wink wink).
However, I have the original Elf that is older than I am! I believe he is pushing 50....
Several years ago, my elf did crazy things to get his pictures in one of my blog posts, but never has he been a tradition, until this year.
We essentially are a house of 4 fun adults, so I asked the guys if everyone wanted to play a holiday game with the elf. They agreed.
I placed the elf by the front door.
Anyone could take the elf and hide him for another member of the family to find.
The finder would take a picture and text it to the other 3 of us and then hide the elf for another member. (It has been fun to get a pic text while I am at work)
Last we gave him an appropriate Ziegenhorn name-
Here are our adventures from the last 2 weeks.
