Beego the Elf: Week 3 (2011)


Here’s what our Elf on the Shelf, Beego, had been up to this week.

WEEK 3

December 11

On Sunday Adaline woke up at home to find Beego hiding in the garland on the tv armoire.

She had a bit of a naughty morning, so when we showed up at Muggie’s house to bake cookies, Beego was already there in the kitchen waiting for her.

I finally got a chance to get to the store to buy a wreath for “Christmas Corner”. Beego decided it would be a nice place to sit on Monday.

December 13

On Tuesday Beego had gotten into Adaline’s blocks and spelled out his name.

Adaline wasn’t very appreciative of this. Later in the day she came to me and said, “Why does he have my blocks? I want them.” Because you can’t touch an elf (or it will lose it’s magic) I got a wooden spoon and carried him away. Adaline was happy with that…and she never did play with those blocks.

December 14

On Wednesday Beego was chillin’ on the frame of our Nutcracker picture.

December 15

I decided that I didn’t like the wreath on the door and had Cool Daddy hang it above the armoire. Apparently Beego approved of the new location and decided to spend the day there.

That evening Adaline wrote her wish list for Santa and placed it in the garland for Beego to take with him to the North Pole.

December 16

Beego must’ve successfully delivered Adaline’s wish list. The next morning the wish list was gone and we found Beego sitting next to the DVD player with the remote and a special video message from Santa for Adaline!
(More about Santa’s message in a later post.)

Adaline spent the night at Muggie’s house and the next morning Beego was there waiting for her!

Beego the Elf: Week 2 (2011)


Here’s what our Elf on the Shelf, Beego, had been up to this week.

WEEK 2

December 04

On Saturday night Adaline spent the night at Muggie’s house again.
On Sunday Beego was on the television armoire.

December 05

On Monday Adaline was back home and Beego was hanging out on the lamp.

December 06

Beego just hanging around.

December 07

We had decorated the tree the night before, so Beego decided to perch in the tree.

He had a note for Adaline about a gift that he left for her.

December 08

Beego was back on top of the newly decorated television armoire hugging Santa Claus.

December 09

On Thursday we bought this beautiful portrait of Santa Claus holding the baby Jesus nativity piece at the Hobby Lobby. Beego must’ve liked it too because that’s where he decided to hang out on Friday.

December 10

On Saturday Adaline was at Muggie’s house again and they were supposed to bake Christmas cookies. Beego gathered together some Christmas toys (characters from Rudolph and Frosty) and hid amongst them on top of the fridge so that he’d have a good view of the cookie baking.

That silly elf also moved one of Muggie’s Santas onto the kitchen table and dressed him in Adaline’s apron and hat!

Unfortunately Muggie ended up coming down with a stomach virus which isn’t really great for cookie baking…so no cookie baking happened on Saturday.

Beego the Elf: Week 1 (2011)


Last week I introduced you to our Elf on the Shelf…Beego! Here are some of his adventures.

WEEK 1

December 01

Our elf arrived on December 01 and Adaline was so excited
(Click here to see a video of Adaline discovering our elf.)

Adaline named the elf “Beego” and he was found sitting on top of our television armoire. And yes…those are Sweatin’ to the Oldies VHS tapes to the right of the DVD/VHS players. Obviously I’m extremely serious about fitness.

December 02

Beego was hanging on to the blinds and he had a special note for Adaline!
(Email and feed readers click here to view video.)


It was a card from Santa saying that Adaline has been put on the nice list 🙂

December 03

On Friday Adaline spent the night at her (Grandma) Muggie’s house and when she woke up…Beego was there! He was sitting on the mantel above the fireplace.

Introducing our elf


Did you know that Santa Claus has Scout Elves? Your family can adopt your very own scout elf! Your elf will come to your home, keep an eye on the kids, and then report naughty and nice behavior to Santa every night. Your elf will land some place different each time (s)he returns from the North Pole, so you’ll have to look for it every day…but don’t touch the elf or it could lose its magic!

I’ve been hoping for years that Santa would send an elf to our family. This year Adaline was finally old enough to truly enjoy an elf. When I saw ”An Elf’s Story” on tv I ran to the VCR (oh yes, don’t be jealous of my up-to-date technology) and recorded it. On November 30 before bedtime we showed Adaline ”An Elf’s Story”. She loved dancing around to the songs and she was worried about Chippey when he lost his magic.

When we brought Adaline up to her bedroom we were all surprised to find “The Elf on a Shelf: A Christmas Tradition” book waiting on Adaline’s chair.

Once she was dressed for bed we read the book.
(When you haven’t fixed your hair and will be taking photos that will be posted on the internet…a Santa hat will work wonders 😉 )

The next morning Adaline was so excited to find that her very own Elf on the Shelf was waiting for her.
(Email and feed readers click here to view the video.)

It took Adaline awhile to give our elf a name, but it was important to me that she name him herself. She always comes up with creative names for her toys and that very day she named her toy zebra “Cupcake” while our elf remained nameless. Most of the time she just called him the elf and sometimes she called him “Chippey”. At around 1pm she finally named him…Beego! (His full name is Beego Sprinklepants).

I’ll be posting Beego’s adventures weekly.

Does your family have an elf? Let me know in the comments!

**Our family paid for our own elf adoption fee. All opinions expressed are my own.
