I shared with you last year
the tradition of The Elf on the Shelf.
I actually started this with my children in 2005.
I am SHOCKED at how it has become such a phenomenon!
Originally, you had to order directly
from the "North Pole"
your package would arrive
with the official postage stamp and markings.
Now, every local boutique is carrying it.
That is a little sad I think.
There was something magical
about it being shipped directly.
Anyway, our elves have traditionally arrived on Thanksgiving Day.
Since then they have been
spying on the children by day,
and reporting back to Father Christmas
in the dark of night!
They return before everyone wakes
and they are always in a different spot!
The children get so excited
trying to find where they have perched
I think I have over heard some major plans of mischief. Perhaps for the weekend.
Be sure to stop back by
and see just what they are up to!
Thanks for dropping by Y'all
