Dad-of-six and amateur photographer Alan Lawrence has taken the idea of the popular Elf on the Shelf tradition to the next level by casting his 4-month-old son Rockwell in the role of the elf! If you’re new to the trend, the Elf on the Shelf is a toy elf that parents move throughout the house as though it is alive. Kids love looking for what the elf got up to in the night!So Alan dressed Rockwell up in an elf costume and recreated the sorts of activities those crafty elves seem to always be getting up to. Of course, the results are absolutely adorable!

If your family has taken part in the Elf on the Shelf tradition, we’d love to see photos of the different hiding spots you’ve found him in! Share them in the comments!

Of course, it has to start with a shelf.

If some of these poses look dangerous, don’t worry! Dad’s just as skilled with digital photo trickery as he is at thinking up silly poses. 

WARNING: Sugar rush imminent!

Who left the syrup out where the elf could find it?
