The Elf has Entered the Building...


Have you heard about "The Elf on the Shelf"? Well, it's sold out everywhere, but I managed to find one this weekend in a trendy boutique that sells cool kids clothes. What a score! {The best part was I had store credit there so it was FREE!}

If you don't know what this Elf on the Shelf business is all about, you MUST check out the website

{It's a bit bizarro with all the "Elf is keeping an eye on you" business, but the kidlets LOVE it!}.

Essentially, it's a book & an Elf in a box that is "delivered from the North Pole" for the Christmas Season. The Elf watches the kids to see if they are naughty or nice, and reports back to Santa every night.

The Elf reappears the next morning in a new location {a shelf, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in the here for some creative ideas from Complicated Mama!}. There's even an iPhone App for more ideas to set-up the Elf! There is seriously an App for EVERYTHING now!

The Elf cannot be touched by the kidlets or else he loses his Christmas magic ability to return to Santa nightly to make his reports. And if Santa doesn't know if you've been naughty or nice, he can't give you presents.  

This little bendy Elf has a LOT of power & influence in our house!
We're really excited about this new Christmas tradition in our house! We have yet to name our Elf because EZ only wants to call him Lightning McQueen. I guess we'll wait till next year to give him a proper Elf Name!

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf?
