Trending: Dad Turns Baby Into Real Life Elf on Shelf

A Utah dad’s curiosity with Elf on Shelf has led to adorable photographs of his four-month old son dressed as the elf.

Alan Lawrence is a dad of six children, and the photos are of their youngest child, Rockwell.

“We have never had an "Elf on the Shelf" in our home but the idea has always intrigued me. Parents letting elves in their homes to watch their kids and cause mischief. Then one day someone told us that Rockwell looked like an elf and idea came to me. What if a real life elf came to live with us for the holidays and how would I react in real life to having it show up to live with us,” Alan Lawrence to CBS 58.


Lawrence plans to publish these every day until Christmas.

The project can be followed at his blog, instagram, Facebook, and Youtube account.
