what our Elf on the Shelf has been up to

I’d love to have an elf who helps me blog when I’m up to my earlobes in Christmas projects, but Zippy doesn’t seem to be the blogging type. (Maybe it’s the lack of opposable thumbs?)

When Ethan celebrated his first birthday, Zippy spent the whole day in Ethan’s bedroom — wearing a shiny little party hat, of course.

Nice try, Zippy. We all know that huge box isn’t for you!

Zippy must have thought the baby gate at the top of the stairs was an amusement park ride. He spent the whole day swinging back and forth, and didn’t even throw up.

Over the weekend Hayden found his missing wallet. I guess Zippy got tired of hearing Hayden announce how much money he still needs to buy an iPod…
