A New Tradition


Have any of you heard of the "Elf on the Shelf?" He's a scout elf for Santa. Basically, he helps Santa find out if  kids are being naughty or nice. Every night he reports back to the North Pole and tells Santa what's been going down in your house. The next morning the elf is hiding in a different spot! Oh and there's a rule. Children aren't allowed to touch him or his magic wears off. Doesn't that sound fun! Our elf will be arriving soon! I'm thinking that this year we'll wait until a few weeks before Christmas before we pull him out, any longer and I'm afraid that  the "coolness" of him may wear off on a certain little two year old.

I've heard of that! I think it's a really good idea, and one that Jonathan may be into as well. I may have to try it! I'll be interested to see how it goes for you!
