Parents will do just about anything to make sure the holiday season is full of magic for their children, but these parents took that dedication to the next level while ensuring their children have a joyful holiday season.
Joe and Megan Wynberg, from Moncton, New Brunswick, were inspired to do a human Elf on the Shelf series after they noticed friends posting funny pictures of their tiny elves around their homes. Since the very first night Joe put on the elf costume and posed atop the refrigerator, the couple promised to post the elf in hysterical locations, and they haven’t disappointed.
By day, Joe Wynberg is a normal husband and dad of four adorable children, but by night, Joe turns into FLE (pronounced ‘flee’), a troublemaking Elf on the Shelf.
“Well, day one, and I am not sure about this “Elf on the Shelf” thing. FLE ate the kids advent calendars, they will be devastated,” wife Megan wrote in a post to her Facebook.
“FLE is out of control! I need to find my receipt. Couldn’t handle those advent calendars he ate last night. Today is the second after all!”
As if FLE’s wasn’t already on the naughty list, he made snow angels out of flour, and peed in the ‘snow.’
“Because picking up after four kids isn’t enough! FLE was pretty exited about the first snowfall of the year and I’m pretty sure he pee’d on the floor. I’m getting rid of this thing!”
After admitting that she wasn’t cut out for looking after the naughty elf, Megan decided to put an end to the madness, and people were devastated.
But just because FLE was kicked out of the house, didn’t mean he was banned from running free and making some trouble outside. “Awe! For pete’s sake! I knew it was too good to be true,” Megan wrote.
After pulling this stunt, Megan finally decided to let FLE back into the house. “So FLE has been trying to get in the house all day. Then I found him doing this. I may have to bring him back in before the neighbours call the cops.”
“So we got our tree up and decorated with the kids today. And then FLE tried to get in the tree like his other “Elf on the Shelf” buddies.”
Megan enlisted the help of some powerful superheroes to tame the wild elf. “I brought in re-enforcement to get FLE the “Elf on the Shelf” under control.”
In their most recent post, FLE managed to break free. “I think FLE is pretty upset about last night and is seeking revenge against those responsible for duck taping him to the wall.”
