I think it is safe to say that I have been impatiently waiting to use an Elf on the Shelf since they arrived on the scene in 2005. I longingly scrolled through Pinterest pins and stalked Facebook albums of families using their Elf in fun and hilarious ways during the month of December. THEN LAST YEAR I HAD A BABY! And this year she is *almost* one year old! So she thinks elves are funny and likes to listen to stories… so I read her “Elf on a Shelf” and told her there was a new sheriff in town.
And even if she doesn’t realize he is watching her behavior for Santa Clause, I am going to have a great time moving him around the house and surprising her Daddy (and the cat).
Do you use an Elf on the Shelf with your children?
