The Elf on the Shelf has been catching some flack lately. Some parents and psychologists are not fans of the friendly elf and think it’s “creepy."

It's for fun and if the kids behave a little better during the holiday season, then the Elf has done it's job. So they can't talk, but what if they could? What would Suzie (Tara's Elf on the Shelf) and the other elves tell us if they could talk.

Here are my guesses:

Darn it, I can't reach that either.

Wouldn't it be awesome if we could buy something that wasn't in the kids section?

There is no "I" in Elf on the Shelf.

Your honor, it was Elf defense.

Be true to thine own elf.

What do you think they are saying?

Suzie has been visiting us for the last 7 years and this is the funniest/oddest picture yet. Well done Suzie.

By the way, what do they call it when an Elf on the Shelf takes a picture of herself??? A Shelfie.
