I’m back to share more of our adventures with Wyatt the Elf. I think the theme for this week was “Oh CRAP!” because at least 4 of the nights I moved him after laying in bed trying to fall asleep. At least once he was moved at 1 am when the baby woke up and I “zombie” moved him. The next morning it was as if he truly moved himself because I didn’t remember it. How is THAT for magic? All our moves this week were “level 1″ in terms of actual effort except for Chimney Sweep Elf. He took quite a but of prop design. You will also notice that he is using his new magnetic super powers and the tutorial for that is here: Magnetize and Accesorize Your Elf on the Shelf. The original tutorial to make your Elf have “bones” and make him bendable is here: Hack Your Elf on the Shelf.
Our Elf discovered a new treasure in the form of a German Christmas Boot and had to try it on. He didn’t stomp any Goombas though.
A little known job of the Elves is to clean the dirty chimneys. Wyatt swept out the ashes to get ready for Santa’s visit.
Wyatt added holiday cheer to the top of the cabinets but got stuck in the process. I swear no elves were eaten. (ignore the naughty message on our counters LOL)
Wyatt failed his Cirque de Elf auditions for the aerial silks. He still practices every day so that one day his dream will come true.
“I’m a little candle, tall and thin…”
I’m not sure what I was thinking with this one. Because I wasn’t (half asleep). Kids were mildly amused…
Wyatt climbed the tree in an attempt to pull off an Ornament Heist and steal the most valued piece in our collection- a One of a Kind handmade ornament from grandma..
You can look back at our first week this year. I’ll have another post next week with the rest of our adventures.

This week I have been keeping Wyatt busy, but doing simple tasks and making easy moves. I will say that the snowflake Elf and S’mores elf were my oldest son’s favorites this week. Enjoy!
I let Wyatt open the first drawer in the advent calendar.
Wyatt found a place on an actual shelf. Imagine that.
Naughty Wyatt found his way to our bar but got caught on our Elf booby trap.
Elves love their sweets! Wyatt decided to raid our pantry and whip up Elf sized S’mores. Fletcher loved this one.
Wyatt found his way into my cloth diaper ornament.
Wyatt loves decorating for the holidays and thought Fletcher’s room needed more decorations.
Wyatt got into the bag of cookies I baked for the new neighbors. At least he offered to share his loot with the other weirdo elves.
Make sure you visit my original tutorial for making your Elf bendable and have grippy hands (these come in very handy) and my newest tutorial for giving your elf magnet mittens and a new snazzy pom-pom for his hat.
