The Elf on the Shelf

We've had a visitor in our house since the beginning of December- it's The Elf on the Shelf! He sits up somewhere in the house every day and watches the kids, then at night, he magically leaves to report whether they are naughty or nice to Santa. Then the next day, he will be in a new spot. This has been SO much fun for my girls. I think Miss B knows what really happens, but she likes to play along. They all can't wait to find the elf every morning. A few mornings he was in the same place (sometimes I'm forgetful) and Miss G was really worried that he didn't leave because she wasn't good! I heard that she got a lot of attention at preschool because all her friends wanted to know if the elf moved last night! He was a gift from my mom last year and comes with a story book that tells how it works- if you are interrested, you can find it HERE. And our Christmas pictures are forthcoming...

I've never heard of that tradition. I like it. Sounds like a lot of fun!
