The Elf on the Shelf Journey: Lulu (Elf on the Shelf Ideas)

We've had an Elf on a Shelf for two seasons thus far.  Ours arrived in December of 2010 and his name is Sidney.  As it turns out, Sidney apparently got caught up in the North Pole this year.  Apparently Santa needed him to stay back and make toys.  Thankfully, Santa and Sidney were kind enough to send Sidney's sister Lulu to keep an eye on the kids this year.  Don't worry, Sidney left a note explaining it all and I think the kids understood why he couldn't make it.  

DAY ONE


I thought it would be fun if you followed along with the many adventures of Lulu.  Maybe you can make some suggestions to your Elf on the Shelf about how to be mischievous.  Lulu, is just like her brother Sidney, and likes to get into a lot of trouble and do fun things.

Last night she toilet papered the Christmas tree while we were sleeping.

DAY TWO: 

Toilet Papered the Tree 

Who knows what other things she's got planned, but I know the kids are looking forward to figuring it all out each morning.  If you're interested, be sure to check back every day throughout December to find out what Lulu is up to.  I know you wouldn't want to miss our on her adventures.  (I will add a picture a day of all of Lulu's adventures until December 25th).

DAY THREE: 


Lulu took some sugar from the pantry to make it look like snow and built herself several marshmallow snowmen.
DAY FOUR:

Lulu turned our milk green and then popped a squat in the fridge and slurped some milk herself.  
DAY FIVE

Lulu made Ella's lunch (the boys are out of town with George).  The lunch had a whole Christmas theme complete with a tree shaped sandwich, a gingerbread shaped sandwhich, a reindeer made with a chocolate donut, pretzel antlers, edible eyes and a red M&M nose.  She also included Christmas shaped cheese which she cut out with cookie cutters.  I know this because she washed them and left them on the counter to dry. What a good little Elf.   Oh and she included a candy cane and a nice little note too.  Sweet Lulu! 
DAY SIX

Lulu was tired from all her previous adventures and somehow got herself tangled in the Christmas garland/lights.   Hopefully she's back to more antics again tomorrow. 

DAY SEVEN: 

Lulu painted her face and grabbed some Steeler's garb, the remote and some popcorn.  Totally appropriate heading into Football Sunday.  She even offered to be QB, but the Steeler's didn't need her this week.  

DAY EIGHT: 

Lulu Zip lined from the second floor bannister to the chandelier in the dining room on a Candy Cane. She's getting quite adventurous in her old age.  
DAY NINE:

Lulu did a face in the hole in the Lucky Charms box.  This create quite a giggle among my kiddos.  
DAY TEN:

Lulu was very tired and took a snooze in the kleenex box with a tissue pillow and blankie.  
DAY ELEVEN:

Lulu reminds the kiddos to Be Good and is found digging in the M&Ms
 DAY TWELVE:

Ella lost her tooth and apparently Lulu ran into the Tooth Fairy.

DAY THIRTEEN: 

Lulu created an original piece of art.. ok ok she colored in a coloring book

DAY FOURTEEN: 

Lulu on a tire swing hanging form the 2nd floor banister
DAY FIFTEEN:

Lulu decided that all this Elf business is a little tiring and tried to clone herself.
DAY SIXTEEN: 

Lulu hid out in a Christmas Tree jar and posted a sign for help!  

DAY SEVENTEEN: 

Lulu crepe papered the kids' rooms so when they walked out the door they'd be trapped.  She's a little naughty.
DAY EIGHTEEN:
Lulu couldn't get back in the house after leaving for the North Pole 

DAY NINETEEN: 

Lulu sipping syrup upside down in the pantry 

DAY TWENTY: 

Lulu decided to put together a puzzle 

DAY TWENTY ONE: 


Where's Lulu?  Lulu hid out "ET" style 
DAY TWENTY TWO:
Lulu took a bubble bath... ok ok it's marshmallows

DAY TWENTY THREE:
Lulu sent a note to our old elf Sidney and she got a note back from him along with some Hershey kisses that Lulu ate!  

DAY TWENTY-FOUR 

Lulu brought a message from Santa (see below)



DAY TWENTY-FIVE:
Lulu acting a little modest while her skirt was drying in the dryer

DAY TWENTY-SIX: 

Lulu decided to make funny faces on everyone's pictures giving me cat whiskers, George devil horns, Jack an afro, Nicholas a beard and Ella a halo.

 DAY TWENTY-SEVEN: 

Lulu playing pool.  (Don't have a pool?  Try your elf playing ANY game)

DAY TWENTY-EIGHT: 

Lulu left the kids a Christmas present from her.  Scratch off Lottery ticket.  

DAY TWENTY-NINE:  
Lulu was so exhausted from all her adventures that she settled in for a nap on a makeshift hammock

We'll see you all next year.  I hope you enjoyed all the adventures of Lulu
