There’s no subtle way to sneak in a blog post about our Elf on the Shelf in January, is there? Now that the new year has arrived, nobody is blogging about Christmas any more, but I still wanted to share these photos of the rest of Zippy’s adventures in December.
Taking his cues from the Chicago Blackhawks, Zippy bottled some snow from the North Pole. The little bottles would be great for stocking stuffers, but the price was pretty steep.
Such a thoughtful elf! Zippy packaged up some Christmas gifts for his little elf friends — John, Simon, and Lucky. I hope they reached their destinations before Christmas!
Prior to Christmas Eve, we stacked up the gifts on the landing of our stairs so that 1-year-old Ethan wouldn’t be too tempted by them. I guess Zippy’s curiosity got the best of him!
Zippy took advantage of the snowy weather and enjoyed some snow tubing.
How many hex nuts can you stack with a candy cane? I planned The Nutstacker game for the 5th grade party at school, but none of the teams stacked as many as Zippy did!
Zippy must have gotten confused when the weather got warm for a few days. We finally found him in the toy closet, sitting on the Phillie Phanatic’s lap and telling him what he wanted for Christmas.
If an elf plays Christmas carols in the forest, and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
On Christmas Eve morning, Zippy’s last day in Pennsylvania, we found him cramming for the big night by reading “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
See you next December, Zippy!
