  • Ours is named Bumble. This is his second year at our house. It is cute to watch my son look for him every morning, but a bit of a pain in the ass trying to remember to move him every night.

  • LOL Yeah I have to remember to wake up at least 10 min before my kids do. Other wise they might see me touching him or he might even be in the same spot....there are so many cute ideas on pinterest though. :)

  • A bun in the oven?? lol No. Just literally an elf. aka santa's spy. He shows up and watches your kids and leaves in the middle of the night to report back and tell santa if the kids have been naughty or nice. And then the next morning he;s in a new spot. It 's just a cute thing to do for the kids. My girls talk to theirs and tell him what they want and write him letters to give back to santa... Pinterest has a lot of ideas for the elf.

  • We have one. My son named him Owen. Currently he's hanging from our ceiling fan wearing a pair of my son's boxer briefs.
