My mom has this really scary looking Christmas elf. . . My guess is that it's from the 60s, and it always comes out with the Christmas decorations. . . and it's always made me just a little bit nervous. . .
Look at that face!!
BUT, I saw this
on the internet the other day, and it reminded me of the scary elf (though slightly less scary). . . and I thought to myself. . . we need more TRADITIONS in our house. And the scary elf is something that was ALWAYS there in our house. . . so why not get one of my own?
This one comes with a story book that explains how Santa sends his little elf helpers to watch over kids and make sure they're being good. . .
we're considering leaving him up all year long as a form of motivation for Nolan. . .
(If you need one, their website has a list of stores that carry them)
