Dad Transformed His Baby Son Into an Elf on the Shelf

Alan Lawrence is a photographer and a dad-of-six from Utah. Recently he decided to bring a great Christmas tradition to life by transforming his baby son Rockwell into a real-life elf on the shelf.

Rockwell’s mom made a cute elf costume and then Alan started to document the elf’s mischiefs around the house. The photo series is called “Rock the Elf”. It’s just too cute to miss!

Alan is skilled at photo editing. So don’t worry if some of the photos look quite dangerous.

When your elf on the shelf is a total womanizer.

Apparently, jamming cookies in the VCR has something to do with the Christmas spirit…

Excellent wrapping skills, but maybe next time choose a different gift.

The tiny elf is definitely better at playing games than Godzilla.

A mischievous elf who keeps children awake by telling jokes is every parent’s nightmare.

I guess the family is eating pancakes without the syrup today.

The elf was caught red-handed in the act of wrapping the Christmas tree in toilet paper.

Alan told that Rockwell is just a good-natured kid, which made taking the photos very easy.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
