Our Elf on the Shelf Hijinks

It’s not Christmas time in our house with Zachary, our Elf on the Shelf.  Zachary first came to visit us in 2009 and every year since my kids look forward to him returning at Thanksgiving time.

This post tells about what an Elf on the Shelf is and why every house with children needs one.

Zachary was busy so far this year.  Apparently he loves fruit snacks just as much as my daughter does.

He spent some time reading knock knock jokes to the Lego Ninjago boys.

This was just too funny.  When we woke up, Zachary replaced our Christmas stockings with underwear.  (My kids laughed so hard on this one!)

My daughter wondered if Zachary would take a nap if she made a little bed next to the fireplace.  Sure enough.  Zachary was sleeping when we woke up.

Zachary has been pretty mischievous this year.  My kids got a kick out of it when he wrapped their backpacks.
