Mom shares hilarious ‘Elf on the Shelf’ prank that left her with a brand new hairstyle

A Missouri mom is spreading Christmas cheer after sharing a funny Elf on the Shelf movie that happened in her home.

Mindy Carney of St. Louis, told Fox News that her elf’s antics began for her family in 2016 when a elf named Cutie Pie appeared on her shelf — followed by two other Santa helpers, Hot Dog and Sprinkles.

Carney, an emergency room physician assistant and mother of three children aged 8, 6 and 3, gained the attention of thousands on Facebook after revealing the unique ways her children face elves.

“Our elves have grown a solid following among my Facebook friends,” Carney said. “Kids see their reactions every morning, it’s like Christmas every day in December.”

So far in 2021, Cutie Pie, Hot Dog, and Sprinkles are tying a Christmas tree from the balustrade, he tells Dad [Ryan] Sinks turned into candy fountains and filled the bathroom with large balloon bubbles.

The elves even cut pieces of Carney’s children’s pajamas to make their own elf-sized pajamas.

“The sad thing is I thought it was going to be really funny, but they were upset,” Carney said of her children. “My mother fails.”

This week, the elves took their pranks to the next level by cutting Carney’s hair while she slept.

Carney was able to get her stylist to address the situation while Carney donated the 14 inches to a non-profit organization, Children with Hair Loss, which makes wigs for children with medically related hair loss.

“He went to a good cause other than just making people laugh,” Carney said.

Carney shares these moments in his “Elf on the Shelf” Facebook groups where other parents post their own adventures.

“It’s all about the Christmas spirit and making magic for the kids,” Carney said. “Everyone does it differently.”

For first-time “elf parents,” Carney’s advice is to “start simple.”

“Whether it’s elves moving from shelf to shelf or people cutting their hair…no matter which way you do it, it’s still a magical thing for kids,” Carney added. “For adults, we get joy through our children’s eyes.”
