Buster has been visiting our family annually since 2008 when my parents gifted him to my children.
Buster is an elf…
An elf on a shelf.
For 6 years he has arrived on December 1st and disappeared on December 24th. During the day he watches and takes note of the good and bad and every night flies back to the North Pole to report to the man in charge. When he returns back in the wee hours of the morning he usually gets into some sort of mischief. From the time Rusty was 7, my kids have eagerly popped out of bed… first thing… to run and find Buster.
This year I have my own helpers that have been working with Buster.
How grateful I am for their eagerness and creativity!
Here is a little glimpse into Buster’s antics this year…
Now in all our years with Buster we have seen him write on mirrors, dye the milk in the fridge, and hang from the rafters…
but never have we seen him…
Go on strike!
Buster is not happy. He left a note telling us so. His note to the kids pointed out some behaviors that need to change before he will come back and play again.
After 6 years he has decided to revolt and I suspect it may have something to do with this little
(or not so little)
I will let you know when his demands are met and negotiations are resolved. Until then…
Elf on Strike 🙂
