Elf on the Shelf 2012: Episode I

You know you like the ode to Star Wars in my title... ;-)

So our Elf arrived last Tuesday and my children named him Reindeer Cat.  I have no idea where this name came from but they both agreed on it (getting them to agree on anything is quite the task), so we went with it!  He has been appearing in a new place every morning and each week I'll share with you where he popped up!  I've heard of elves in other homes popping up in similar places so I don't claim our elf is orginal in all his ideas.

 Wednesday Morning...

We found him in the tree keeping a close eye on the kids with Sam's binoculars.  The kids were amazed that Reindeer Cat stole Sam's binoculars. 

Thursday morning...

The day our elf arrived from the North Pole is also the same day we discovered that the kids had the flu.  We found our elf here with a note beside him that read, "Got the flu."  The kids decided that Santa would be able to make the Elf all better that night when he got back to the North Pole.


Friday Morning...

I guess our elf was hungry after being healed from the flu... I don't think goldfish make a very good meal and our fish didn't enjoy the elf hanging out up there.  They stayed in the far corner of the tank most of the day.

Saturday Morning...

Can you see him?  Sam saw his feet right away...

We found him making some friends with the dolls!

Sunday Morning...

We found him just hanging out on the bathroom door hooks in our basement.  Our daughter has been struggling getting to the potty in time, so we decided the elf moved here to keep a closer eye on her.  I'm happy to report Reindeer Cat should have been able to tell Santa Julianne had dry panties all day!

This Morning...

We found him with Blue playing Blue's Clues!  He and Blue left a clue that we assume is a clue to where he'll be tomorrow morning.  He even drew his clue in his handy dandy notebook.  (Sam pointed out that the Elf had to come in his room to steal his notebook and his Blue)
