That's what you get when you let the boys name the elf whatever they want. With a little too much influence from the movie, "Elf" this year, they named our elf on the shelf "Cotton-headed ninny muggins." I call him Mr. Muggins for short. He's a nice elf with brown hair and blue eyes. He finds pretty good hiding spot while the kids sleep at night, but he has yet to stump them. I think he needs to try just a little harder :)
The dining room light, not too shabby of a hiding spot. It took the kids a long time to find you that morning, Mr. Muggins.
The fruit bowl, this would be good if me kids never ate fruit.

Real original Mr. Muggins, the Christmas tree, really?
And right next to the Wii? Like they don't look there? C'mon, get more creative
Hanging off a picture frame? A little better....
Irregardless, it's been quite the fun tradition to start this year. When they're fighting or acting up, I simply have to say, "Mr. Muggins is watching you" and they shape up pretty quickly. Does anyone know where I can get some coal? I'm seriously thinking about making these for their stockings....
