Last night we brought out the Elf on a Shelf. Parker was so excited! I read him the book about how the elf will watch him for Santa, everynight he will go to the North Pole and tell Santa if Parker has been good or bad, and every morning he will be in a new place for Parker to find him.
We started this tradition last year but Parker wasnt that into it. I think this year he is going to love it! He really cares if he gets in trouble or if someone thinks he is being bad.
Parker has named the elf, "Mr Elf"...so original =)
This morning Mr Elf was hanging out in the Christmas tree and Parker thought it was so funny!
He wanted to play with him but one of the rules in the book is that he cant touch him, Mr Elf is only there to watch Parker and report back to Santa. He was ok with that and is hoping he will still be in the tree when he gets home from school!
I have some cute ideas for Mr Elf this year!
