Day 21 to 24 – Hostages, sleds, dates and angels
Our elf has been having loads of fun! One more night and then the big guy arrives!
Day 15, 16 & 17 – Toilet Paper, Guitars & Reindeer Cars
The last couple days of Max shenanigans looked like this… 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! Click here to see what else our elf has done this year.
Day 10 – Max the Mummy
Ole Max turned into a mummy last night. 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! Click here to see what else our elf has done this year.
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… 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! 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! 🙂 Click here to see what else our elf has done this year.
Day 5 – Chocolate War
So our elf got into a little chocolate combat with some of his friends last night… While initially excited, when Brogan discovered that Max had used all of his Oreos to build his fortress, he was slightly miffed. Oops. Click here to see what else our elf has done this year.
Day 4 – Sick Elf
The flu is going around our house and Max was not immuned. Poor little elf got sick. 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! Click here to see what else our elf has done this year.
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…
