The Elf on the Shelf

Do you have an Elf on your Shelf? {amazon affiliate link}

Ours shows up on December 1st and from then until Christmas can be found in a new spot every morning. {Or at least it moves when he doesn't get too lazy or have a little help from Santa's bigger elves aka mom and dad!}  The kids eagerly search for his hiding place every morning and are so delighted when they spot him.  I've caught both of them whispering secrets to him, while being oh so careful not to touch him since we all know the elf loses his magic to travel back to the North pole at night if he is touched.

This year the Elf is bringing little trinkets which is sure to bring morning smiles.  Let's hope he doesn't have traveling problems this season!!

I just love the magic that surrounds Christmas!
If you have an Elf on the Shelf, I'd love to hear some of your stories.
