Elf Adventures 2012

One again, we've been able to have elves visit from the North Pole.  (You may notice that these are not your typical Elf on the Shelf dolls.  Those creep me out, so we improvised with a Kelly doll {Kayla} and then added two plush dolls from Hobby Lobby {Kyle and Ashley}.  The basic idea is still the same.)  Here's some of our adventures so far this month:
The elves arrived along with a beautiful subway art print from Colette at My Computer is my Canvas.  They shared the nativity story with the Little People and Veggietales characters.

 Another night, they acted out a nativity.  Who knew paper towels were so versatile?

Apparently they rode on Rudolph's back from the North Pole.  They really liked those paper towel head scarves.

So far, they'd been pretty well-behaved.  Knowing our mischievous little elves, we knew that good behavior couldn't last too long.  Sure enough, we woke up to find them like this one morning:
Holding a dry-erase marker and looking at the kids' photos on the opposite wall.
We had a Boise State fan (she's very pro-Husker), a kitty and a polka-dotted clown.
Plus, a pirate, shark attack and an evil villain.  I wonder what adventures we have in store for the next few days.

Do you have an elf at your house?  What have they been up to lately?
