From Sweet and Sassy to Downright Naughty

There are 12 Days left until Christmas Day.

Yesterday was 12/12/12.

In honor of the number 12, I’ve put together The 12 Days of Elf on The Shelf…

This gallery of Elf on The Shelf has ideas that range from Sweet and Sassy to Somewhat Mischievous to Downright Naughty.

Make sure your kids are in their rooms, that your stick-in-the-mud-boss is in their office and that you’ve got your sense of humor firmly in place.
