Dad Turns Himself Into Elf on the Shelf (No, Really!)

We all know about the adorable (or is it creepy?) Elf on the Shelf that everyone seems to be obsessed with in recent years. But we bet your family isn't as dedicated as the Wynbergs. That's because dad of four Joe Wynberg has transformed himself into an elf named FLE (get it?!) for the Christmas season.

His wife Megan writes on her Facebook page (where you can follow FLE's daily adventures), "So we finally caved and decided to do the 'Elf on the Shelf' thing. The kids are going to be so surprised! We named our elf FLE and he will be in some pretty precarious spots over the next 24 days! Enjoy."

Oh, we will.

On Day 1, found Fle found himself in a precarious position:

"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 peed on the floor. I'm getting rid of this thing!"

And the epic saga continues!

Why go through all this trouble? Perhaps it's something as simple as just bringing a little Christmas cheer. Megan shares, "In a world filled with sickness, war and general unhappiness, each and everyone of you have shown what life really is about: happiness, laughter and love. Please continue following us as we continue to hopefully bring some joy into this world."
