Clive: Our "Elf on the Shelf"

Just a quick "for fun" post today.  :)  Last December we got an Elf on the Shelf book and elf doll set.  I've forgotten a lot about the story in the book, but we had a lot of fun playing hide and seek with the elf doll.  Each night before bed I would hide our elf in a different location in the house.  Tabby and Hunter loved to look for him the next morning.  We named our elf "Clive."

This December we're having fun doing this again.  Can you spot Clive in this photo?

That's right - he's hanging out with Lilly's crazy sock monkey. 

Today Clive was reading Hunter's favorite Christmas book Are you Grumpy Santa?:

Does your family have fun with an elf on the shelf?  If so - what did you name your elf? 


  1. we got an elf this year too. pa loves finding it as much as the grandkids do. they named ours "marchris." that is a combination of the names "chris" and "martin," jl and clara's pretend names.

  2. They look so happy together. I wonder what they're talking about?

    Lots of love to your family,

  4. Remembering when i bought you that little blue rocking chair in the above picture. for your 1st birthday along with a baby doll. the chair is still so pretty! i think i paid $25 for it. a lot back then but so beautiful....
