Whats your Elf on the Shelf been up to this year?

This is the first year we are doing the Elf on the Shelf in our household. Even though my son is nearly 3 months old, my in-laws purchased this as a new tradition for us to start in our household (wish they had this when I was a kid). We were able to come to an agreement on a name after many choices (Jangles), something that would be easy enough for young child.

Now I havent really hidden Jangles like most people do over the month of December, because honestly I don’t think my son will be looking for him so instead I have him for this year propped in my sons room watching over him and taking notes for Santa (lol).

I want to know from you (those of you who have done this before, or are doing this with your kids currently), where do you find inspiration of hiding places, or ideas/themes for your Elf on the Shelf??

I need to start getting ideas for next year (if you didn’t know by now, I like to plan ahead of time).
