It’s that Elfing time of year again

Yes, its time for the mischievous Elf on the Shelf to come live at our house again.
I have to say this is a pretty genius idea. This Elf (ours is named Elfie) comes to our house on December 1st and watches the kids until December 24 when Santa comes to give the gifts and take Elfie back to the North Pole with him. Elfie reports back to Santa every night about how the kids were behaving in our home, Are they Naughty or Nice? Then Elfie comes back to the house where he gets himself into plenty of not so great situations and we wake up and catch the little one playing about the house.

This morning Alyssa woke up and was on the hunt to see if Elfie would come again this year, and much to her surprise she did. She even came with a door to the North Pole. When we woke up this morning there she was sitting next to her new door with a note for Alyssa. So after reading the note, Alyssa sat down and had a little chat with Elfie, Alyssa explained that since she has to be good every day that Elfie should be good everyday and that maybe this year she should try to not get into troublesome predicaments around the house at night.

So from now until Santa comes to gift us our gifts and take Elfie back, we are stuck wondering “What will Elfie do tonight?”
