Countdown to Christmas: A Very Perry Christmas

Hello and welcome to week two of Elfcapades and the Countdown to Christmas!


Our elves have been a tad under the weather this week and I've been downright sick so there aren't many pictures of the shenanigans.

I'm hoping next week will be better.

One day, it could have been Thursday.....they kidnapped some buddies from the kids' beds and got the LEGO Harry Potter Game out.  I don't know who was winning but they all seemed to be having fun.

Over the weekend, the elves brought a movie. Phineas and Ferb: A Very Perry Christmas

This couldn't have come at a better time!  It's the perfect 79 minute distraction so that sick Mommy can take a nap on the couch.  Thank you Vincent and Poe!

One night, the elves were so lazy that they just wrote a note.

Another night...they hid in the entertainment center and it took the kids 30 minutes to find them.

In my nyquil induced haze, I decided that the easiest thing for the elves to do on Tuesday night was to just sleep with the kids.  This ended up being one of their best hiding places ever because kids never thought to look BESIDE THEM for the elves and thought the elves had left town again.

Winter break is only two days away so the elves have all kinds of plans for them.  Which is code for Mommy better figure some things out!

Do you have a post about getting ready for Christmas or your elf on the shelf?  Link up with Liz from Sugarplum Creations!

Are you a movie lover? The Golden Globe nominations where this morning and I put the best picture nominees in the I Love Movies tab.  How many have you seen already?


  1. Last night Dobby brought Big Girl a happy birthday balloon. I have no idea what he will be doing for the next week and a half.

  2. Sounds like despite the sickness, there's still lots of fun going on in your house!! :)

  3. Being sick is the biggest bummer :( We've had colds, some sort of stomach bug, and I've had an enormous headache for days. Kinda puts a damper on things!

    Glad to see that it hasn't stopped the elves, though! Seriously, we need an elf. Maybe one will drop by our house next year ;)

  4. I've only seen two of the nominated movies in the "grown up" categories. I've seen FOUR of the animated ones. God help me, I need a date night.

  5. Being sick sucks-- its taking over my house right now and I feel it attacking me! Idea for your elves.. do you have a buzz light year? We have one and I wanted to hang him from the ceiling fan as if he was in flight and then put the elf on his back like he was flying on him.
    How about the dashboard of your cars to see them when you guys are going places?

  6. Sorry you've been sick. :o( Hopefully you're getting it out of the way now so that you can enjoy Christmas Nyquil-free!

    Phineas & Ferb is a cartoon I can watch and not have to pretend to like for Lexie's sake. :o)

  7. You have been coming up with the best elf tricks. I love those!



    It's going to be a Very Perry Christmas here too. I found Agent P jammies and even Phineas & Ferb pez dispensers for the stockings!

  9. Yep, our elf is planning some crazy ass shiz for the winter break! I better get ready!

  10. i love the elf idea. so cute. xoxo

  11. Our elves played candy land the other night and built a lego tower last night...I have to figure out tonights thing very soon...I am TIRED!


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
