Wordless Wednesday: Zurg The Elf

Anyone else doing The “Elf on a Shelf”?

Mr. Zurg or just plain, “Zurg” as we named his last year, made his appearance starting on December 1st. It was a cute idea at first. You do funny things with the elf. You move him around, etc. I should have learned my lesson last year, right? I went and bookmarked all these cute ideas. Every night, around 11pm, I start to panic. I think to myself, “where do I put this dumb elf tonight?” On Monday night, he jumped onto the bunting hanging from our office doorway.  You know the bunting that I made. Ya, that’s a whole other story, but I am taking sewing lessons. Because I need more things to do in my busy life.

Are you ready to kick the elf to the curb? Or is it just me?

I have solved the dilemma of where the elf should be. He/she sleeps in a different bed during the day and lives in our tree each night. Works out well for all :)

I have never even heard of this, but since my daughter loves finding the monkey at Trader Joe's, I know she'd love this.

I'm over the elf too; he was cool last yr but twice now I've woken up @ 3am because I forgot to move him....seriously I don't need an elf to make me lose anymore sleep I already don't get enough as it is. I would love to take sewing lessons & learn to be more crafty I love the bunting

I've not done elf on the shelf yet, but I guess I really should. It looks a little creepy if you ask me! LOL

Never bought and elf. But my WW is the perfect example of what would happen to an elf in my house...Love the name though.

You did a great job on your bunting. I'm hanging mine today & a note to all elves: step off.

Forget the elf! That bunting is so cool! We don't have an elf. He kind of freaks me out and gives me the creeps. I have lots of friends that have one and their kids love it. I could see myself at 3:00 a.m. waking up in a panic because I forgot to move the elf. lol

This is so something I would do and then drop the ball on about 2 days in. Fortunately, no one in my house has mentioned an elf and far be it from me to give anyone any ideas.

Mr. Zurg is cute! Although, I would get tired of moving him around.

Ours (Fred) is currently hiding in the Christmas tree. I am hoping it will take all morning for the kids to find it!

Aww thanks!!! I had fun making the bunting. I might have woken up at 2am in a panic and moved the elf.

Yep, I made the bunting. The Elf kinda creeped me out. This might be our last year. I got so tired of moving him around.
