Festive-izing the Family Vehicle. #YMCCommunity

I’m sure you’ve seen vehicles driving around town donned in antlers and a red nose, or they’ve been “elfed”.

"Elf" your car.

These lovely car kits can be found at your local Walmart, Canadian Tire or dollar store.

I would totally decorate our minivan for the kids, but since it’s the “family vehicle” that Daddy uses for work, it’s not something that he’d like to been seen driving around town in. If we had a second vehicle, then I would totally go “Christmas Crazy” all over it! I’d even have these guys.

I wonder if this would frighten the kids.

Santa might become a source for nightmares.

We’d even don the roof with Christmas lights.

You can NEVER be too festive right?

I don't think that this would draw too much attention, do you?

Do you Elf?

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf?

Elf on the Shelf

I haven’t fallen victim to the Elf on the Shelf craze yet, but I’m seriously considering getting our kids one this year.

The story behind Elf on the Shelf, is that he or she is a scout sent from Santa that gets adopted by a family to watch over the kids and report back to Santa of the naughty or nice things that the kiddos have been up to. Every morning, during the holiday season, the kids get up and find the elf in a new position around the house. There are several sites that give parents suggestions of what this little sprite can get in to each day leading up to Christmas Eve.

I’ve seen loads of ideas for all the naughty situations that this little elf can get in to.
