Day 15, 16 & 17 – Toilet Paper, Guitars & Reindeer Cars

The last couple days of Max shenanigans looked like this…

15 - Toilet Paper Roll

16 - Guitar

17 - Reindeer Cars

We’ve been running into some trouble with Beckett – when Max is within his reach, he wants him… and sometimes grabs him, which is problematic because Brogan’s worried he’ll lose his magic. We’ve tried to explain that when little brothers don’t know any better, it’s alright, and obviously Max has not lost his magic yet. The explanation works for now.

Day 11 – Bandaid Bandit

Max got the inspiration for this stunt from Brogan – my child who has been known to wake up in the middle of the night and adorn himself with bandaids (and gloves too). So imagine Brogan’s excitement when our elf was up to his own tricks!

Day 10 – Max the Mummy

Ole Max turned into a mummy last night.

10 - Max the Mummy

I wasn’t home when Brogan woke up this morning to get his initial reaction, but this afternoon when I asked him what Max had done, he said, “Mommy, you won’t believe it!! Max is a mummy!”

Making Christmas time magical for him (and Beckett – although he doesn’t quite get what’s going on) is just so awesome!

Day 9 – Beach Day

So Max (and me) have been a little jealous of all my Florida friends and family posting pictures at the beach and on the lake in 80-degree weather (in December!!) while we’re in day 8 of rain and it’s 42 degrees. Well Max decided it was time for a little beach getaway…

9 - At the Beach

When Brogan saw Max, he promptly decided he’d taste the sand (so glad Max opted for brown sugar!).

Day 8 – Carnival Ride

We think Max has lost his mind… he turned our fan into a carnival ride!

8 - Carnival Ride

The boys were both pretty amazed at this one. Beckett would just stand in the living room looking up at all these swinging toys and grin. Too fun! 🙂

Day 5 – Chocolate War

So our elf got into a little chocolate combat with some of his friends last night…

5 - Chocolate War

While initially excited, when Brogan discovered that Max had used all of his Oreos to build his fortress, he was slightly miffed. Oops.

Day 4 – Sick Elf

The flu is going around our house and Max was not immuned. Poor little elf got sick.

4 - Sick Max

Brogan felt well enough this morning to go searching for Max and couldn’t believe he was sick too! Hoping everyone in this house gets better soon!

Max has returned! Day 1 – Excavating Candy

We came home today from our trip to Florida (more on that later) to find that our Elf on the Shelf Max has returned! He joined our family last Christmas and if last year was any indication, there will be lots of elf shenanigans going on this house again!

Day 1 was Max excavating the leftover Halloween candy. I know, I know, how do we have any leftover Halloween candy? Well, we put it up so the boys couldn’t get into it and out of sight, out of mind, I suppose. Brogan was the first to see Max when he walked in and he was SO excited. He was excited for a couple of reasons… 1) that Max actually returned (because elves only visit good boys and girls), 2) that he was on his excavator (one of Brogan’s favorite toys) and 3) that he found all the Halloween candy. Needless to say, we’ve got one very excited little boy who is thrilled that it is Christmas time again.
