Elves At Play

Rusty and I had fun the other day!  He cut out  elves and made the ladder and I painted them.  Years ago his mom bought one of these at a craft show and gave it to us when the boys were little. Usually I would prop it up against the Christmas tree to look like the elves were busy decorating. The other day our niece (who has the two little cuties, Grace and Lily) was asking her mom if anyone still had a set, so we got ours out and decided to try and make one for her. Won’t she be surprised?!

I kind of hated to part with it since Rusty and I made it together, but I still have mine to enjoy!  Since we are talking about elves, I thought I would leave you with some silly little elf jokes…
What kind of bread do elves make sandwiches with?
Why, shortbread of course!

Why did Santa's helper see the doctor?
Because he had low "elf" esteem!

What did the elf say was the first step in using a Christmas computer? "First, YULE LOGon"!
What's the first thing elves learn in school? The "elf"-abet!
Why do elves scratch themselves? Because they're the only ones who know where it's itchy!
Why did the elves spell Christmas N-O-E? Because Santa had said, "No L!"
If athletes get athlete's foot, what do elves get? Mistle-toes!
Where do you find elves? Depends where you left them!


  1. Love the little elves on the ladder. Such a sweet gesture to make one for your neice. Wilbur our elf appears everytime Darbee Rae visits and she just loves it. He stays in trouble. Am trying to post his activities on my blog when she visits. Have a blessed evening.
