Call me crazy but I thought it would be so fun to dress Oakley up as an elf on the shelf! I figured, she’s my first one and once I have more I won’t have time for stuff like this, so I might as well do it now! We had so much fun! We cracked up taking the pictures every day. We watch Elf more times a year than I care to admit, so there are quite a few Elf references below. We’ve already started thinking of ideas for next year. I’m so looking forward to when she’s older and she wakes up every morning looking for her Elf on the Shelf. I think she’ll enjoy looking back at these pictures one day.
Here are the captions that went with each picture!
Our elf on the shelf showed up today and is already reporting back to Santa. Oops!

We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup!

Tis the season to be jolly!

Oakley the Elf says she’s missing the North Pole so she made her own!
Hot chocolate anyone?

On Abigail! On Colt! On Charlie! Santa’s taking the year off, I’m running this sleigh!

Until next year everyone!
