Before the Elf on the Shelf was available everywhere, including my grocery store, or you could buy clothes, accessories and pets for your Elf, I offered the tradition to Lucas.
He was 4 1/2 at the time and wanted no part of it. In fact, the idea scared the bejesus out of him.

scoured Pinterest heeded the call and came up with 17 days (we were a week late to the party) worth of ideas.

Looking at these photos, I fear I may have set the bar too high. I’m not feeling too creative this year.
Are you doing the Elf on the Shelf in your house? Have any ideas to share?
