Elf on a Shelf

A couple of weeks ago I got an elf from the second hand store. His name is Hermey from Rudolph and the misfits. I have heard of this great thing called elf on a shelf and it finally clicked. This tradition has you put an elf out on a shelf. The kids see it and ask what is he doing there. You tell them that the elf is watching their every move and reports them to santa. The evening when they fall asleep you move him. I decided to give it a shot. So far it is working. he has sat on top of tv, inside entertainment center, on the tree and on top of the speakers. The kids are listening more too. Hopefully this tradition continues for awhile. Big Ro laughed at first and now thinks this is the greatest thing ever.

My kids are having a blast with the elf... We have not named him yet though... They just call him "lelf" maybe next year he will get a "proper" name...

My cousin has an elf come each yr and at night, he makes messes or some nights have does nice things. Its kind of funny and the kids get mad at him and try to lick him in his house, only to have him escape and toilet paper the room or hang undies from the tree.

I like your tradition too, its fun to hear all the different traditions.
