Mischievous Elf on the Shelf is Back!

If you don’t already have an Elf on the Shelf – it’s time to get one.  You don’t need kids to enjoy this little fellow as I think I have more fun with him than my girls.

We got our Elf a few years ago and the girls loved him!  He comes with a cute book to read to the kids about the Elf watching your kids during the day and then returning to the North Pole every night to relay everything the kids did (whether it was naughty or nice).  Yes, creepy to think this little guy is watching our every move but it’s all in good fun!  You can also go online to name your little fella (ours is Hot Tamale).

The girls rush down every morning searching for Hot Tamale.  Where will he be and what hi-jinx will he be up to today?  Hot Tamale makes his appearance the day after Thanksgiving.
