The Adventures of Fred, Our Elf on a Shelf

Fred, Our Elf on a Shelf, has been hanging around our house since before Thanksgiving! He mostly just sits around and watches Emma, and I'm sure he's had to give Santa some bad reports, but he's also been caught doing some crazy things! Here is an example of his adventures so far...

Things started out pretty tame...

We forgot to take the number off of the Advent calendar, so Fred reminded us!

When we found Fred on a shelf in Emma's room, we took that to mean Em needed to clean her room!

Hanging in the tree!

Then Fred got a little more adventurous...

Having a marshmallow fight with the Barbies!

Taking a ride in Em's Strawberry Shortcake car! He's a little too big...
Unfortunately, Emma touched Fred when she tried to take her car away... so he spent a few days laying down, recuperating... but then he bounced back big time!

Movie date with Barbie!

Reading all of Em's Christmas books!

Making (rice) snow angels!
Bad Fred! TP'd the fireplace (not a fire hazard like TPing the tree)!

Little mischievous Elf!

Caught in the container of cookies!
We still have a few days until Fred goes back to the North Pole to stay until next year, but I had to share his little adventures. We'll just have to wait to see what he gets caught doing the next few days!


  1. Oh Kayla, these are the cutest pictures! You should print them and make a book! Love how you are making Christmas time so fun for Miss Emma!

  2. Cute ideas! I love the marshmallow fight and I love Evie's suggestion of making a book of the photos! I may have to do that!
