Elf on the Shelf

The Elf on the shelf appeared at our house when Camyn was little I can't remember the year!? But it's been several and the first few years the Elf just sat on the shelf, or simply moved around the house, Elfie came out when the Christmas decoration went up and we'd read the book... The End! well fast forward a few years and Elfie found out about social media and Pinterest and all the other fun stuff Elves just like him were doing, and Elfie just had to do it too! #followthecrowd
A couple of years later I introduced Emma to the Elf and she named her Daisy!
So for the last 4 or 5 years Daisy and Elfie come in with a bang! They bring the North-Pole breakfast for the first day they show up. And they do little things all month long. We don't use the elves to make mess (because mom would have to clean up) we don't use them as leverage. they are fun and part of our traditions! I'll admit I have a love/hate relationship with the Elves and some days they still sit on the shelf, because well mom is tired or just don't care!

the cat did mess with Daisy this year! LOL

These are this year and the years past.(i need to organize my pictures)
 This is the first year that Elfie didn't show up, Camyn asked me if he had to have an Elf this year and I said no it was fine. but to please still believe in the Magic of the season! and play along with his sister!!
