Today's Photo Journal: You Gotta Be Elfin' Crazy

I recently found myself combing Pinterest for all those blogs with creative ideas for our Elf on the Shelf.  What I really learned was how positively certifiable some parents are.  Oh, try not to be offended if you're one of those overachieving elf people, but I just couldn't imagine myself executing some of those elaborate plans.

Still, our Elf -- Baxter -- has his own style.  I bet your Elf has never done this...

That's right, our Elf is participating in an epic air battle between the Axis and Allies, and his best vantage point for monitoring this zoo proved from the tail of a German Messerschmitt Bf-109.

I couldn't help but smile when the kids expressed a little concern about his hanging up there all night watching them sleep.  'Cause, I mean, really, it is kinda creepy, right? 

In my research, I came across this blog posting, which had me belly laughing.  Fair warning:  The language is a little rough, but really, any blog titled People I Want to Punch in the Throat is just begging to be read, isn't it?  I can't take all that negativity all the time, but a little dose now and again boosts the outlook.  :)
