Utah dad Alan Lawrence decided to feature his four-month-old son as an adorable real-life “Elf on the Shelf”. The father of six and art director put together these funny photos of Rockwell dressed in a red elf costume that his wife made.
Next, he started snapping photos of the Elf on the Shelf doing mischievous things around the house, as house elves are reputed to do. He began sharing the photos on social media.
It might look like Rockwell is precariously perched on the top of the shower or doing things a baby shouldn’t, but don’t worry it’s all fun and photo editing.
Take a look at the hilarious and cute photos below.
“We woke up this morning to find an elf in our family room. Our neighbors seem to think he is part of the “Elf On The Shelf” program but we are still not sure. He doesn’t talk, just sits around watching us and eats all of our food. I’m just glad he’s wearing a diaper.”
“Every morning the elf insists on throwing marshmallows at me while I eat my sugarless cereal. I don’t like marshmallows in my cereal, I’m not four years old!”
“This time the elf has gone too far. Tonight he waited until I had my eyes closed washing my face in the shower, then snuck up and started singing “Joy to the World” at the top of his lungs.”
“Flipped on the lights and caught him red handed. Somebody needs to start earning his keep around here.”
“The elf has been a huge help wrapping gifts this week, but I was not as grateful when I stumbled to the bathroom in the middle of the night and found this present.”
“Third time telling this elf not to put cookies in the VCR! He is fascinated with jamming them in there.”
“Tonight was the first night the elf ate dinner with us. He never broke eye contact with me the entire dinner. I asked him repeatedly to get off the table but he would just throw noodles at me.”
“So the elf is still hanging around. I made pancakes this morning but we had to eat them without syrup because he wouldn’t let us touch it – just sat on our bananas and watched us eat. Hoping to get more answers today about how long he plans on staying.”
“Okay this elf needs to go back to the Candy Cane forest or wherever he came from. Today was the second day Wil misses his nap because this elf woke him up to tell him Narwhal jokes.”
Share this adorable Elf on the Shelf with your family for the holiday season!
