This, However, Is NOT Gettin' My Christmas Cookies Made.

Plus, it's gonna take forever to pick the hay off of all that green velvet.

Send your own ElfYourself eCards




(That's Bean's Teddy playing the role of the 5th elf.)

Thank you, Melissa at Galloping Cows for sending the entire FriedOkra household into hysterics for most of yesterday afternoon!

Now I want to see EVERY ONE of you do this yourselves, and leave me a comment so I can go see it. It's too much fun not to get in on, people!

Oh yes, and it's my day today over at 5 Minutes for Parenting, too. So you've got that to do, as well. Better get a'goin'!



Y'all can subscribe to FriedOkra's feed here.

  8. I was playing it on my laptop, and Mookie rolled over and started watching and she was ENRAPTURED by the FriedOkra Elves. :o) These just keep getting funnier and funnier. I love Bean's cartwheel and Al pulling you to him after he's lassoed you. :o)
    These are just too darn much fun! I think this is better than any Christmas card.

  9. The Hubs and I both got a kick out of that! I know that the giggles were rolling from lil' Miss Bean when she espied that video!

  10. Very funny! Love it! But instead of elfing my own family, I decided to write my own Holiday Not To Do List instead. LOVED your article. Very smart, thanks for the great advice and inspiration!

  15. I did this last week (it's up on my blog)--these things CRACK me up. My absolute fav is the disco version. My 2yo asks daily to see "the sparkly funny one."

  17. OK, that was HY-STER-I-CAL! Mr. Fried Okra's face was...well...a bit maniacal, though. Funny. In a somewhat frightening sort of way. :) Thanks for sharing!

  22. I didn't do it, but!~ Two years ago, when Elf YourSelf came out with the movie, we put my bosses head on the elves and sent it to our brokers. They laughed for days! So much fun!
