This is our first year with our Elf on the Shelf...and I honestly planned on being super creative. But I have found that with my kids being young it honestly doesn't matter. They love it no matter where he is. Don't get me wrong I have definitely pinned all the elf posts on pinterest. And planning a super creative one for the last several days before Christmas. But up until now we've sat on different things & even rode the cow ornament in the tree and the John Deere combine in Maddox's room.
And he may be leaving a special message on the bathroom mirror tonight.
They both wake up every morning searching for our elf, Jingle. And Emma ALWAYS says "crazy" and that's "funny". He has brought so many laughs and fun moments to our house.
And I would love to say that he has made my children "little angels" but no so much. There's always next year ;)
But he sure is fun! And I love starting traditions with my children.
