The Elf on the Shelf

This year our family has started a new tradition called The Elf on the Shelf . Elf on the Shelf is a little elf doll that reports directly to Santa Claus. Kids can tell the elf their Christmas wishes. Here's how it works. Mr. Elf comes to visit your home during the holidays. He watches over the home and reports back good deeds to Santa each night. The next morning he comes back and sits in a new location. Your kids get to search him out each day. On Christmas Eve he returns to the North Pole and stays their until next year.

I HIGHLY recommend this tradition to anyone that has children. Jillian wakes up each morning so excited to search the house until she has found Sarah (her Elf on the Shelf), she has really gotten a big kick out of this!
