Elf on the Shelf

My school teacher daughter, Sarah, told my daughter Robin (mom of twins, Jack and Lola) about this book. It comes with the story and a little stuffed Elf. The Elf watches over the children and returns to the North Pole each evening to report to Santa about the children's behavior. He returns every morning and the twins never know where they will find him!

My daughter and son-in-law are coming up with wonderful ideas that thrill my grandchildren. The fun part is that she emails a photo to myself and my other daughters each morning and we look forward to it. This morning she was a little late getting it out and was inundated with text messages asking where our morning cheer, aka Elfy, was!

Click here to order the book.

Here is where Elfy has been found in the morning!

 Fishing with Buzz Lightyear and Barbie! He is using candy canes, which were surprises for the twins because he reported their good behavior!

 Pretending to be in the Macy's day Parade. Hanging from the helium balloons!

 Riding Tyrannosaurus Rex and leading a parade of farm animals.

Hanging from a wreath at Grandma's house

But this was the best of all! 
The day after Thanksgiving we go tree hunting. My daughter told the twins that Elfy had a special surprise. When they got to the tree farm, there was Elfy waiting in a tree.

We walked around the corner and there he was!

 Lola was so excited to see him!!

Jack is still trying to figure out how he got there.

  1. Love this post! Seeing the collection of Elfy pictures shows me how great the book is going to be each year. Who knew a little stuffed elf could bring so much holiday joy!
