I'm Back. I MEAN "their" back! 25 Days of Elf on the Shelf...

Ok, so I am NOT dead.  I am just BUSY!!  Life has really seemed to get in the way changed the amount of time I have to blog.  That being said, it HAS NOT gotten in the way of planning and preparing for another "ROUND"of Elf on the Shelf for Ave & Bryce.

Like LAST YEAR, I have developed a PLAN-O-ACTION and I also intend to take daily pictures to share the wonderful and often amusing adventures of Ave's Elf, Tangled AND Bryce's Elf, Guy.

I should probably disclose at this time that GUY is...ummmm....missing.  Yes.  Yes, he is actually MIA.  Between taking him to Florida last year and then back (maybe? I think?!?!) he has decided to play a "trick" on this Mama and well, I AIN'T laughing.  At. All.  (I suppose Karma is a $itch! LMAO!)

Since we are 4 days away from ElfMania 'round here, I went out and bought ANOTHER "Guy" and I should ALSO probably disclose at this time that THIS Elf is not the same ethnicity as the original "Guy". WTH?  Allow me to explain....the NEW "Guy" is Caucasian and the old "Guy" was...ummmm....not.

It is with great hope that neither my son nor my daughter notices the ethnic difference and it is with GREATER hope that the original "Guy" shows up in the next 4 days so I can return the NEW "Guy" we can avoid any awkward moments and/or conversations at this time because they are ONLY 3 1/2 and I really DO NOT want them to figure out that Elf on the Shelf is some made up behavioural modification tool to make mine and MANY parents lives a little more "easy" for 25 days of the year...you know what I'm saying.  RIGHT?!?!?!

Anywho, without further delay, here is this year's 25 Days of Elf on the Shelf Starring Tangled and (new, possibly...HOPEFULLY...original) Guy:
