We are Santa's Elves, Filling Santa's Shelves!

A friend of mine turned me on to a new website called "Elf Yourself" (sponsored by Office Max.) You superimpose your head (family's heads, cats, dogs, frogs - the possibilities are endless!) onto these dancing elf bodies. There is a snappy, jazzy version of Jingle Bells that plays in the background along with your jiggy, little elves! Once you're finished, they give you a web link for your dancing family which you can send to friends and family. As you can see, we had fun with ours. (You'll might also notice that my daughter is not wearing sunglasses - but two pirate eye patches, one with a skull and cross-bones! If you remember, we went through a pirate phase recently. More about that here...) It's really hilarious and I think our Dasher-dog elf was the funniest!

The only issue I notice with this is that it may require a lot of memory or certain plugin because I had some friends that weren't able to bring up with website. But, I think it worked for most everyone. You can insert up to 4 faces and add a personalized voice message.

Here is the link of our dancing elves and the main link if you'd like to make one of your own! If you're not quite in the holiday spirit this year, they also offer a Scrooge Yourself which looks pretty funny. I just love holidays and all these silly internet things they offer! So much fun!

(UPDATE: Apparently you need to have the most recent version of Adobe Flash to play the video...)

My hubby and I did the elf thingy, too, and it was a fun thing. I do believe the OfficeMax site is one of the most popular this year!
Thanks for sharing!

You guys look so funny! How cute! I tried to bring up the site again with you dancing and got a pop up that said that it requires the "recent version of adobe flash player". Oh well, I enjoyed your post!

Too funny. I could not get into the site the last time I tried.
Our computer modem went out yesterday and my husband just got it replaced a while ago. I was going nuts w/o my e mail and blogging. In the mean time we also got a bunch of snow that had to be plowed.
Hope you had a good day.

I saw this about 2 weeks ago and it made me laugh out loud!!

I loved the door decorations at your work.
