Do You Elf On The Shelf?

'Tis the season for baking, shopping, hot chocolate drinking and general merriment.  'Tis also the season for toy store meltdowns, refusing to zip up coats and tormenting siblings.  Each year it seems like more and more parents bring out the Elf On The Shelf as a cute watchful eye for the big jolly man himself.

This year I grabbed a plush version of the cute little elf but for whatever reason at 4 years old Kayla is not really buying into the concept that Santa is the one who brings presents around here.  Perhaps it's celebrating both Christmas and Hanukkah that is challenging her logic.  Since she knows at Hanukkah presents come from parents. 

On the first night of Hanukkah she asked me if I was going to the guest bedroom or the garage to get her a present.  So much for my close-to-the-holidays hiding places.  Precisely why I rely on my neighbor for her gift hiding services.   Anyway, our Elf On The Shelf is getting benched till next year when I'll make my second attempt.

Despite our EOTS fail, what I have enjoyed thoroughly this year is seeing what other parents are doing with their elves, and in particular the mischief these elves that are supposedly watching for good behavior are up to.

I can't take any of the credit for the photo above, but my hilarious friend Tammy who runs Cherry Love Boutique in Michigan had an extra naughty visit from her son's elf Max who hung their underwear all over the Christmas tree.  I can only imagine the looks on their faces when they discovered what Max had been up to!

If that wasn't enough, Max was also bold enough to  help himself to a very luxurious looking marshmallow bubble bath in the bathroom sink.  I'm willing to bet that from what I know about Tammy, Max has a few more clever and incredibly mischievous stunts up his sleeve.

So I have to ask as someone who is very new to this - Do you Elf On The Shelf?  If you do, what's your best move so far?
