Use the Bathroom at Your Own Risk - Elf on the Shelf Post :)

Rascal had a good time playing Wii games after the kids went to school yesterday.  He got rid of his excess energy and crashed just about the time my oldest son got home from school.  Then last night as I was getting ready for bed, Rascal told me good night as he was leaving to head back to the North Pole.

This morning I heard him coming in the back door shortly after I got up.  It was really windy outside this morning and I wanted to make sure that Rascal made it inside safely.  The…

Rascal Likes to Play Video Games Too

Rascal came down from the chandelier after the kids went to bed.  He said that he was ready to go for his nightly visit with Santa Claus.  I don’t know why he was in such a hurry to run off, but it must have been very important to Rascal.

Hopefully, he wasn’t off to the North Pole in search of more sweets, this seems to be his favorite thing to eat.  He must have been out pretty late again last night, because he was sneaking back in just as I was coming out of our bedroom to go wake…

The previous night Rascal had time to make a few bracelets and left a huge mess of beads behind.

Rascal Gets Crafty and Makes Bracelets

Rascal had to be rescued from the toy box so that my toddler wouldn’t misplace him or play with him.  I placed him on the fireplace mantel so that he could still keep an eye on the kids.  By that evening, he was ready to head to the North Pole to go visit Santa Claus, the other elves, and reindeer.  He left shortly after the kids were tucked into bed and I didn’t hear him sneak back into the house this morning.  In fact, I wasn’t sure if he made it home in time to cause any mischief.…

Rascal the Dog Groomer

Last night when we went to bed, Rascal told me that he was going to surprise us but he wanted to visit with Santa, the elves, and reindeer.  During the wee hours of the morning, Rascal decided that he wanted to be like the “Elves and the Shoemaker” and do something so that we wouldn’t have to do it.  The next morning when we woke up, I was wondering why the dog wasn’t asleep in her bed.  This is so unlike Katie and I immediately knew something wasn’t…
