by Monarch Women's Wellness on December 22, 2011 · 50 comments

Lately we are seeing this little Elf everywhere on Facebook, Pinterest and even the Hampton Roads Show!  Yes, this Elf is all over the place and we find him to be SO irresistible!

Curious to see what this little Elf has been doing around town?  Check out Owen’s antics below.  Amanda McGhee, of Kimberlin Gray Photography is inspiring us all… even those of us with less active elves.  We must admit we love her Facebook posts these days!  See for yourselves the magic this Mom of two is creating!

“During the night, Owen decided to strike up a game of Connect 4 with a friend! (For those who don’t know, the little white furry guy is Ava’s favorite friend, Bobby – who she named at 18 months old and has slept with and favored since she was 1!)”Amanda McGhee

Elf playing connect four!

“This morning, I’m off to welcome home the sailors of the USS Bush who have been serving our country overseas for 7 months,  Apparently, Owen is honoring them. too. in his newest adventure.  We found him this morning sailing the ‘seas’… in the bathtub! =)”

“Tomorrow morning, the children will wake to find that Owen the Elf has raided the craft cabinet… and was hard at work.  Although, the stickers seem to have confused him a bit =)”

“That little rascal Owen is at it again.  In the morning, the kids will find that he’s colored the milk remaining in our jug green to match his scarf and earmuffs.  It’s chilly in the North Pole – and the fridge!!”

Now what fun is all the work if the Elf on the Shelf doesn’t encourage “good” behavior, right? Here is how Owen got down to business.

“Santa has not been getting a good report from Owen the Elf. Let’s see if this letter will help them shape up and get back on the Nice List tomorrow. Hmmmmm….anyone wanna take bets? ;-)” Amanda

Elf gets down to discipline

“Sneak peak of our Elf, Owen’s mischief last night…”
Owen paints their noses red

Amanda caught their reactions on video – so cute!  A small tip from Amanda:  Beware if you try this at home…  make sure you don’t mind their pillows being covered in red face-paint…  and make sure they are in a deep sleep =).

“Wonder what Owen is cooking up for the kids? They’re finding this little bit of fun tomorrow morning…”  You can get some of this fun here at A.Dodson’s.

“The ‘magic seeds’ Owen brought this morning have grown into yummy treats for the kids to find when they wake up!”
