Where is Isabella the Elf?

Isabella the Elf has been at our house for several weeks now. Buying the Elf on the Shelf was the best decision ever made. My daughter is excited every morning to get up and go look for Isabella. We did not want to scare our daughter, so for the first several weeks, we started off with simple placement of the Elf.
One mistake I have already made is that I forgot to move her one night. Usually my husband will pick up my slack, but both of us forgot that night. Our daughter woke up and found her in the same place. I had to think of something real fast, so I said to our daughter: I thought you walked by her last night and accidentally brushed her with your arm. My daughter was devastated. So I told her to go tell Isabella what she wanted for Christmas and that she was sorry that she accidentally touching her. When my daughter was eating breakfast and not looking I rushed to move the Elf.

  We have noticed that Isabella has a thing for our living room and all the Christmas decorations.
Isabella must miss Santa. We find her by the many Santa's a lot.

She sometimes hangs out in the kitchen above the sink.

Isabella wanted to wrap up in a towel too.

 Here lately Isabella has been sorta silly.
Above the stove, she is watching to make sure our daughter cleaned her plate at supper.

She found a toy.

This was where Isabella sat the first day.

 I will post more as the of the spots Isabella appears in the weeks leading up to Christmas. This is so much fun.

  1. I had started to panic because I had not been able to find our elf. (seems I am so good at hiding things that I can't even find them) BUT the hubby found him yesterday! Everyone was so excited to have "Checkers" back!!

  12. My little man loves his elf, Olfie. He has found him fishing for Goldfish and taking a nap on the kleenex box, complete with a kleenex hand towel pillow and blanket.
    He hides in "easy" places through the week and "fun" places on the weekends.
