Elf on the Shelf: Day 1

5 Dec

Nannie and Poppy bought the girls and Elf on the Shelf yesterday. We are SO EXCITED about him.

You DO know about the Elf on the Shelf right??! If not, you’ve been living in a cave….or at least without the internet. (In which case, you wouldn’t be reading this either.)  Here is the basic gist of it: This is a special scout elf. He reports back to Santa every night about whether the children were Naughty or Nice..and when he comes back in the morning, he is usually hiding somewhere new, or he has gotten into something he shouldn’t have. He is a very silly elf.

Meet ours…Rudy Snowflake. (The girls couldn’t agree on a name, so they both picked one. Addison wanted Rudy. Macyn wanted Snowflake. I think this is a huge improvement when it comes to names because the other day, Addison told me that she wants me to have another baby so she can name it Watermelon.) Elf Shelf

Apparently Rudy Snowflake likes to drive around in the Barbie Camper. I think he’s a little sweet on Sleeping Beauty too, since he convinced her to ride along.

There is one catch however. You are NOT allowed to touch the Elf. If you do, he loses his magic. The girls wanted to take a picture with him, but were extra careful not to touch. I think they showed amazing restraint. We will see if they can go all day long without touching him! I can’t wait to see what Rudy Snowflake has in store for us tonight!!

Thanks Nannie and Poppy for helping us start this new family tradition. If I can’t BE little… I think this is the next best thing! I love keeping the “magic” alive. I’m probably having as much fun as they are!
