Christmas traditions are a fun part of the month of December. Our Elf on the Shelf Tradition began in 2009 and is a daily event that our family really enjoys. Sadly, we have one night left with our elf since she flies back to Santa on Christmas Eve. I blogged about Addie’s first week at our house here. Let’s move on the the past 2 weeks. These weeks are a little photo light, I think some images are still on one of the camera.
Addie hid in a variety of places. When she was up by the front door it took the girls half a day to find her. Addie also sat in the girl’s desk chair, dangled from the cabinet above the fridge, and hung out in the light above the kitchen table.
The best day was when she turned the fridge into a snowman and dangled down from the ceiling above. Oops, there is a duplicate photo. Addie also hung out in the basket of cinnamon scented pine cones in the entry way too.
Two night ago our elf was found in Big Sister’s bedroom, and last night she was found in Little Sister’s bedroom. It goes without saying that they enjoyed extra time spent in their rooms over the past few days.
I am so glad we started the Elf tradition. The girls absolutely love it…and it makes getting up for school days so much more motivating since the race is on to find the elf. Having another tradition to go with our Christmas Pickle Tradition is wonderful.
You can get the boy Elf on the Shelf, girl Elf on the Shelf, Chistopher Popinkins, or elf plush dolls from Amazon. Check Target and Hallmark for the Elf on the Shelf sets. There is a chance you may find some on clearance…..but those chances are pretty slim.
