Elf on the Shelf: See Busy Philipps’ AMAZING Elf Scenes! (Photos)

Cougar Town star Busy Philipps is making me realize that I totally need to step up my game — in the Elf in the Shelf placement department, that is.

Almost every day of the month, Busy has been posting photos on Instagram chronicling the high jinx that her male and female Elves do in their home. Busy has two little girls at home, Birdie and Cricket, and she is giving these girls a totally awesome Elf on the Shelf experience. Their elves aren’t just spying on the girls for Santa, but they are having sled races, dressing up in Disney dresses, and giving wonderful presents. Yes, it’s all colors of awesome.

Check out what Busy Phillipps’ Elf on the Shelf dolls have been up to right here — there are some great ideas that might just inspire you to step up your game, too!
