New Tradition!

This year we welcomed Elfie into our home and family! 

This is a tradition I am so excited to start! I watched friends do it last year and couldn't wait to start it for Bailey! She is still a little young and doesn't have a full grasp about what's going on but she likes little Elfie and I was excited to see her looking for him this morning on the tree which is where he was yesterday morning!

This morning I had to lift her up to find him.... 
He was enjoying a nice dip in a bowl of giant marshmellows! 

Cute little guy, isn't he? 

For those of you who aren't familiar with this tradition, it's called Elf On The Shelf. A little Elf that you adopt. He (or she) was sent by Santa to watch over your little ones the month leading up to Christmas. The Elf flies back to the North Pole every night (using magical powers of course) to report back to Santa. When he returns the next morning he gets into some kind of mischief!
Sounds fun right?! I thought so! 
The fun part for the Mommies and Daddies is coming up with the "mischief"! I think our Elf, Elfie will save some of his really good mischief for later when Bailey is a little older! ;-)
