We have adopted the new trend - "The Elf on the Shelf."
He's a little helper from the North Pole who visits us during the holidays and watches over us during the day. At night, he flies back and reports to Santa. When he returns to our house, he picks a new place to watch us. It makes for some morning fun!
We named ours Snowflake. We can't touch him or else he may lose his magic.
We just hope that he tells Santa good things!
