We are doing the Elf on the Shelf tradition in our home, and while some people do it only in the month of December, we decided to start the day after Thanksgiving. The girls named our Elf “Boy” and are having fun finding him every morning. They do seem a little wise to the plan and often say that I am the one moving him and that he is “supposed to be” somewhere else. They do say he flies to Santa every night and that he tells Santa things, so maybe they will get more into the magic of it in future years.
So far Boy had been on top of the blinds, on the clock over the fireplace, on the microwave:
(The girls were a little concerned he’d get too hot up there), on the doorbell chime:
on the bathroom mirror:
and today he did his first little bit of mischief- he turned all the stockings around:
I’m sure we’ll have to duplicate some of his places, especially since Boy has to be someplace high since the girls would destroy him given the chance to get to him 🙂 Maybe next year?
