Hi, Can we start a new thread for people who will be doing the Mischief/Magic Elf for the first time and for people who have done the Elf-capades before. This will be the first year of us doing this and hopefully it will become a new tradition for us. I am a SAHM mom to DS5 and DD3, I think they will have a blast with the elves. I found two elves last year at Marshalls after the Christmas holidays to use this year. I would have started this last year, but I didn't hear about this until it was too late in the season. I like to have a plan before I start something, and I just didn't have my plan ready last year. I would love to see posts from others who have done this before. What were your elves names? How did they arrive at your house? What mischief did they do while at your house? Did they have any special things they brought with them? When and how did they leave you on December 24th? I know it is a little early for Christmas still, but this will give us all time to plan all of the above. Please join in, this will be fun!! Mischief Ideas (Under Construction..) 1. Raiding the underwear drawer and hanging underwear on the tree . 2. Making snow angels in flour. 3. Having storytime with all the animals. 4. Having snowball fights with cotton balls. 5.
