our elf is back!

 You remember Porkchop right?  Well he's back!  He started off his visit by bringing the boys their yearly Christmas ornament.  Moses was a little worried that he might not know how to find us in our new house but quickly decided that he could always get directions from Uncle Eric (where Porkchop had been before).
This year he had his very own door.  We've convinced the boys that it only works when an Elf uses it.
Before he made his debut, I gave him a little surgery.  Giving him bendy arms and legs required me removing his head completely, pulling out his stuffing and ripping out stitches.  Made me a little nervous but in the end...well worth it.  
 He's already up to no good and the boys love him more than ever.
Doug and I have just as much fun with him as the boys do!  I know there are many (many) people out there who don't "get it" or think it's a waste of time...but we have a blast!  The boys LOVE it, we LOVE it and to us, the extra time and "work" is well worth the joy it brings to the boys!

Are you "elfing" this year?
Pin It!

You've made me want to make my elf do mischevous things. :) I just have a little elf sitting next to a little santa on the shelf. :)

LOVE the toilet paper pictures! My sisters and I each had an elf like that, that only came out at Christmas time (after schools let out -- my mother always put up decorations the day before schools let out), back in the early 60's. I remember taking the elf with me when we would go pick out a Christmas tree.

We "elf" too. My hubby and I love it. The girls like it too, but we really get a kick out of coming up with elf ideas. Glad Moses and Aaron love it as much as you guys do!

I was hoping to see Porkchop again. My little one is only 4 months so it will be a little while before she will be able to enjoy elfing... but I love watching what you do with him.

I think we're going to get in on the elf action next year when my daughter is just a bit older. For now, I'll enjoy seeing what Porkchop does on Instagram! Hilarious! :)

I can't wait to have kids! I've always wanted to do the Elf in the house tradition!
