Our Elf, Tilman

Tilman is our Elf on a Shelf. He has made quite an impact on Chatham- he is very conscience of what he does that Tilman might not like. But Tilman has shown Chatham it's ok to be silly sometimes.
Every morning Chatham RUNS down stairs to fine where Tilman has landed after flying to the North Pole. One morning he was taking a bubble bath in a Marshmallow tub.
 Another night, Krispy (our year round elf) was reading him Elmo's 12 days of Christmas.

 We have three disco trees that are the center piece on the kitchen table and Tilman sits and watches the kids eat breakfast.
 Getting low on sugar, he stuck a straw right in the syrup bottle.
 Our elf has a creative side and thought I hadn't decorated enough- so he colored some ornaments and hung them from the light above the kitchen table (this was two weeks ago and they are still hanging there)

I have a pretty pewter nativity scene from my mom that we put out every year, and Chatham LOVES to play with it. We woke up one morning and Tilman had turned them all into rubber duckies

 On a more giving note- Tilman's Christmas Spirit came out and he left a dollar for Chatham with a note instructing him to put it in a salvation army bucket.

That silly little elf! What will he be up to next!

  1. Looks like we got a few of the same ideas for our elves' mischief, but I might have to give our elf, Brewster, a few of these ideas. :-)
