Ours was up on the ceiling fan one night. Unfortunately the fan got turned on accidentally and went flying. lol

He has also been found in Barbie's car with Barbie. Another day he set up a bday party with a few Barbies for my son's bday. Another day he was found hanging out of a cookie jar with a cookie in his hand. Then other nights he is just sitting on a shelf chillin.

Ours is currently swinging from the chandelier in the dining room.  I haven't decided where I am going to put it tonight.

 I had ours digging around in my jewelry box tonight,and he rode a model airplane my son has hanging from the ceiling. I got him holding a spray bottle in the kitchen, using my kitchenaid mixer with some flour sprinkled around,Fishing out of our aqaurium with an ornament as a bobber, and I put him inside my 5 year old's Batman cave set with Batman and the Joker.

He reports to Santa if kids are naughty or nice is my understanding.

I saw a cute one where you put a straw in the maple syrup and put it up to the elf's mouth... Also drops of toothpaste around and the elf holding the tube.

So far our elf has been sitting with his bowl and spoon waiting for breakfast (night 1), drawing on the kids faces in their pics with dry erase marker (day 2), making snow angels out of powederd sugar in my kitchen (day 3), and today we found her hanging from the bird cage.. Tonight she will either climb our tree, zip line through our living room with barbie and spiderman, or get locked outside the window because she didnt make it back in time. LOL  There are TONS of ideas on Pinterest though

 Ours is currently sitting in the tree holding an ornament my husband made that says "believe."  My daughter just came out and saw him and said "That is just awesome." :)
