Train (our elf) is BAAAACK!
We’ve planned and now we’re ready to execute. In fact, we set our Elf in his first pose on Thanksgiving eve.
Normally our Elf comes on December 1, but because this year is this year, Train came early!
This is our third year of elf’ing and we actually enjoy it and miss Train when he has to return to the North Pole.
We found the secret to actually enjoying your elf is to pre-plan the poses, so you don’t have to think on your feet. We do this by creating a calendar. While we deviate from the calendar on occasion, it’s so useful to have an idea ready to go. We’re four days in and have deviated twice, which is fine by us. Michael doesn’t know any different.
If you need even more ideas, check out my Elf on our Shelf Pinterest Board.

I’m off to set up tomorrow’s epic elf adventure. Happy elf’ing! I’d love to hear your best elf scenes in the comments!
