The Elves are Back in Town!!!

Our Elves are back in town!!! If you don't have an Elf on your Shelf, I highly suggest you run right out and get one. We have a blast with our Elves. The crazy thing? I grew up visiting the Elf on Granny Nelva's Christmas tree. When I got to be a grown-up, I found one at Restoration Hardware and got it for myself.
Last year, when our girls were introduced to the whole Elf on the Shelf thing, I just put two that we had here into service. But this year, that wasn't enough for Abbie. She bought the whole book and a new Elf with her birthday money. So now we have a new Elf!
And I know I shouldn't, but the whole "The Elf can Hear You!" thing really works. With the threat of Santa finding out when that Elf reports back tonight, our girls got right into bed and went right to sleep.

Oh my goodness! I have the same elf on my tree! It's the one my mom put on ours growing up!

I was just about to post about our new friend. I read on another blog about this elf and I knew how naive my girls were so I figured they buy it. When we were going thru some of Mom's Christmas decorations, we found one of these elves. (this one is a cheap version, so he actually has feet!)

Anyway, the girls get up every morning and look for where he has landed during the night when he returns from the North Pole. I totally can't believe they bought it...TOO FUN!!!

It's the craziest thing... Abbie is kind of "on the fence" about the man in the red suit. But she's 100% into the Elf.
