Elf on the Shelf

the elf on the shelf

Tuesday night I was at a cocktail party at a local toy store (FYI – a night full of yummy cheese, toffee and wine is a fabulous way to get moms to buy dump trucks,puzzles and race cars by the bag load…) and on the way out my friend Leslie spotted The Elf On The Shelf in the window display. I had never seen this elf before, but she told me the story of the family behind the product and how they had a long standing Christmas tradition about the elf. I have already started to lie to my son that “Santa was watching” and that he sent elves out to keep an eye on everyone. I know we shouldn’t lie to our children but….whatever…. This elf would be perfect for us. So today after lunch I popped over to Paper Source and picked one up. I was able to stick him way up high above the fire place before anyone got home. Tonight I called out for my son, “Hurry, hurry – what is that!?!?!”  He came running down the hall and spotted his new friend. He was totally into it. I had tucked the accompanying book in the fireplace for him to find and we read it together. We both loved it. And by the way, there is an very fun Elf on the Shelf website too so you and your kids can visit the North Pole.

This will be the start of a very fun new family tradition for us. Hurry up and pick up your own copy of The Elf On The Shelf for your whole family to enjoy.
