The Elf On The Shelf

Presents For Everyone!
SweetCheeks Goes First!
Her birthday celebration
extended a couple of days.
She reads her cards now.
And loves everything-no matter
what she gets.
Uncle MamasBoy helps her
with some of the harder words.
MamasBoy's birthday was worth
a little extra recognition, too.
SweetCheeks returns the favor
and helps him read HIS card.
Whatever it said
was pretty funny.
SweetCheeks couldn't stand
how loud he laughed so
Ria took her place.
Do you know what he is laughing at?
He is SO GOOFY!
He is laughing over the comics
on Bubblegum wrappers.
He likes an audience!
Actually, he is 
HIS OWN BEST AUDIENCE.
Also adding to the 
entertainment...
The Amazing BigBoyE
doing his upside down
trick.
While sweet little
CharlesInCharge
looked on.
After presents we watched
The Christmas Story
Can you believe I had 
never seen it?
Cupcakes,
Lots of food,
a game or two that
produced a lot of laughs
and everyone went home
with this.
And if you click on the picture
above it will take you to an
Elf on the Shelf giveaway.

Yep- You get to live with an
Elf on the Shelf
and I get to live with this....
MyHero with a
Penguin costume on.
Uh-huh!
My!  What a big beak you have!

Looks like you guys had way too much fun, Diana! I hope you and SC are feeling better. And I don't even want to know why your Hero just happened to have a penguin costume! (I thought he was just some big strange bird, I didn't realize it was a penguin!)

It looks like everyone is on the mend. Never seen the movie (I don't watch a lot of movies). I like the Elf on the Shelf idea. It sounds like fun.

laugh is a good medicine! hope everyone is feeling better today

"Cottage By The Sea" said...

Laughter is the best medicine and it looks like you get a good dose at your house. I can't believe my eyes! You have never see A Christmas Story? One of our favorites that I (force) our family to sit through every Christmas so I feel like a family even though they think they're all grown up!

Jann Olson said...

Too fun Diana! Him laughing so hard at the bubblegum comics is a hoot! We have a grandson who will turn 12 tomorrow. Helps to make a sad day in history a happy one. Looks like all had a great time. Love little guys blue eyes. No, I can not believe you had never seen that movie before.
Hugs,
Jann

Gina said...

Looks like a fun time! You aren't alone...I've never seen A Christmas Story either! Well now that you've seen it, I guess I'm alone! Lol
So jealous over the Elf on the Shelf. Why couldn't they have had that out when my kids were small? I would have had a lot of fun with it.

Lucille said...

Sounds like a good time was had by all. That's what lovely memories are made of and you have plenty of those, that's for sure. Enjoy your big Penguin. He sounds like such a good sport and you too, of course, Diana!

How fun! I hope you're feeling better!!

Red Rose Alley said...

Diana,
Isn't 'A CHRISTMAS STORY' the funniest movie? It is one of my favorites for sure. We watch it every year together. I love that little Elf on the shelf. I would like to have him.
