I knew I wanted to do the Elf on the Shelf with our kids someday, but didn’t realize all the work it was! Tom got me the Elf on the Shelf for Charlie’s first Christmas in 2011. We attempted to do it in 2012, but Charlie was too little and we didn’t worry about it too much. Last year, we tried a bit harder, read the book and still failed. This year- this year we’re going to really try! I’m sure in comparison to most, we won’t be up to par, but hey… if I remember to move him- I’ve succeeded!
I’ve gathered some great Elf on the Shelf posts from my friends to share with you and save for myself! We’re going to need all the help we can get to make it this year!
