The Elf on the Shelf Day 1

This year for Christmas I decided it would be fun to introduce a new tradition
When Sean and I got married neither one of us really had any traditions to share once we had kids so we have been coming up with our own.
This year we decided to start The Elf on the Shelf.
It came in the mail yesterday. 
After explaining to Liam and Simon that it isn't a "doll", and that Mr. Elf came alive when we were all asleep. They were excited.
I wish it made them willing to go to be earlier. Not so lucky!
This morning our Elf (who we haven't named yet) had gotten into some mischief.
This is what we found when we 
woke up.
 He popped popcorn and settled down... 
to watch a Christmas movie.

Naughty Elf!
Stay tuned for day 2 to see what kind of trouble he gets into tonight!

  1. That is so cute! Our Elf on the Shelf is never found anywhere that is nearly as cute as that. You are so clever! Keep the ideas coming because I am going to have to copy you since I have no original ideas of my own and just set him on shelves around the house! So boring!
