Sunday night while we were sleeping our naughty Elf on the Shelf,
Ginger, did a really bad thing. It took me forever to get the angel topper on the Christmas tree just right. I even had to stand on a stool and use a wooden spoon to get it just perfect. Well Ginger threw it in the middle of our living room floor and climbed up the tree and sat down right on the top. The kids thought it was funny when they woke up in the morning. And the more I moaned and groaned about it the more they laughed.
Last night the stupid Elf (I don’t know what she was thinking) took the Hershey’s Kisses out of a glass Christmas tree and then stuffed her
little body inside. She left the Kisses on the end table and magically they all disappeared during the night. I’m assuming Charlie ate them wrapper and all. Right away this morning, I had to Google to see if he was going to be alright and it appears that he will. It says he might get the runs or puke all over (great) but he won’t die. Now the kids think Ginger is trying to kill Charlie!
Sunday was our first night with Ginger. How is it that Elf on a Shelf has been around since 2005 and I didn’t know about it? Some cool facts about the book; (according to Wikipedia)
-A mother daughter team wrote the book.
-They received so many rejections they self-published.
-They started out by publishing 300 copies in 2005.
-They sold over 1.5 million copies by 2010.
Did you know the book has some competition? Yep, a publishing
company came up with a parody book for mom’s and dad’s titled The Elf off the Shelf and apparently it’s about knocking elves off their shelves. If you’ve read this please let me know how it was.
If you don’t have an Elf on a Shelf you NEED one. Go to Pintrest
for fun ideas. This would even be fun for couples with no kids. If you have an Elf I want to hear about it! Tell me its name and some funny things that it’s done. And this site is for adults only, its Elves Gone Wild and shows pictures of our favorite elf in adult situations. It’s funny! http://blogs.babble.com/strollerderby/2011/12/15/elves-gone-wild-more-hilarious-photos-of-elf-on-the-shelf/
Milk, it does a body good but what good can possibly come from
pouring it on your head? The newest (and strangest) Internet craze is called ‘Milking’ and to participate you need to take a pint of milk and pour it over your head while someone is taking pictures or filming. It’s as simple (and as stupid) as that. I thought ‘Planking’ was funny and ‘Owling’ was a hoot (ha, ha) and Tebowing was funny at first but I don’t get why people like ‘Milking.’I think it’s just plain weird.
This trend started in the UK. Maybe milk isn’t as sacred across the pond as it is here in Iowa. I don’t know but I do wonder if Sakina Murdock or Jane Isaac have tried this? I would love to post a picture of one or both of them ‘milking’. Two maids a ‘milking’would be splendid for Christmas time!
