Have you started the Elf On The Shelf tradition in your house? This is our second year having Fred the Elf in our home for December and he has started getting into mischief while we are asleep.
If the Elf On The Shelf is new to you, let me explain how it works. The Elf arrives at your home with a book for you to read to your kids and lives in your home from now until Christmas. The Elf is watching your kids and reporting back to Santa on their behavior, the good and the bad.
Each morning when you get up, you find the Elf in a different place around the house. Our Elf gets himself into some interesting and sometimes naughty situations that my boys find hilarious. It’s really a lot of fun and this could be our last year with the Fred because my boys are getting older, so Fred is going to have some fun!
We woke up this morning and found Fred helping himself to our Cheerios, he must have been hungry this morning when he got back from the North Pole. My boys thought it was pretty funny seeing his legs sticking out of a mini box of Cheerios and a mess of cereal all around him.
We have a fun Elf On The Shelf Pinterest board where you can find more ideas and watch for more posts coming this month with where Fred ends up.
You can pick up your own Elf On The Shelf at Target and many other stores or just order it online. You still have plenty of time this year so start tonight!
