The "Elf on a Shelf" might only cost only $12.99, but as ~cool dad~ Alan Lawrence is proving, making your own is priceless. That's exactly what he did with his adorable son/elf, Rockwell.
"We have never had an Elf on the Shelf in our home but the idea has always intrigued me," the Utah-based daddy-blogger told BuzzFeed. When someone told him that his 4-month-old looked like an elf, something clicked and the rest was super cute history.
Lucky for us, Lawrence isn't saving these gems for his family's holiday card. He's sharing the cheer and plans to post a new photo and story every day until Christmas. For all the pictures and updates you can handle, follow Lawrence (and Rockwell) on Facebook, Instagram and Lawrence's ThatDadBlog.
In the meantime, here's a little taste of their holiday cheer.

TVs eat cookies
So fresh and so clean
