Let me introduce you to Elfie the Elf. The Elf we adopted on November 27, 2010. Elfie showed up at our doorstep Friday night. The kids had been wanting The Elf on the Shelf and I looked for one on Black Friday at the book store but they were all out of them (wink~wink).
So Friday night as were started putting the tree up, T asked C1 to go plug the outside lights in and that really means all the kids are going to go. As soon as the door opened C1 saw a wrapped box and the kids eyes grew big.
So he brought the box inside and we were all wondering what it was??? They opened it and loud screams of "The Elf on the Shelf" echoed across the living room. Happy children danced for joy as The Elf on the Shelf had showed up on the doorstep. What did this mean? None of us knew. So that is when T read the story of The Elf on the Shelf and at that point it was all clear what was about to happen.
First things first....Name the Elf. That took a little bit, but the kids finally came up with ELFIE. (Which happens to be number 2 on the top 10 list of Elf names) Then the rules had to be set. And actually there is only ONE rule. NO touching ELFIE. If ELFIE is touched he loses his magic. Elfie's job is to report back to Santa and let him know if the C's have been bad or good.
So as I passed by Elfie this morning, I gave him a friendly nod hello and a wink to let him know, I knew about the mess in the kitchen but I was going to make him clean it up. Told him to have a nice day and hang in there. Sometimes the C's can get a little crazy.
This is going to be a wild ride and I will keep you updated on Elfie's happenings.
P.S. No matter the reason you celebrate Christmas, getting The Elf on the Shelf can be a fun thing for parents and children. I highly recommend getting one and I was not paid or compensated for that comment.
