Elf On The Shelf

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)

We have the Elf on a Shelf and Maddie LOVES it! Last year was our first year doing it and it was a great success. I can't wait to put him out this year. You guys are going to love it!

that is the scariest thing I have ever seen...and elves aren't usually very creepy. Don't let Nolan see it. It will scar him for life.
