I just love the idea of Elf on the Shelf. It is such a cute way to keep the spirit of Santa in your home all through the Christmas season! I have seen a lot of great ideas for him on Pinterest...even ones that incorporate the story of Jesus into the mix. What a great idea!
Emma Ramey officially "met" our elf yesterday. I read her the book (more like read the book while she squirmed) and introduced her.
We talked about how she won't always be able to touch him, but since they were just introduced, it was ok that day. :)
And yes, she was wearing short sleeves...it is HOT here this week! What is up with this weather?
Our Elf has officially been dubbed "Eddie"...we thought it was a good nod to our family's favorite Christmas movie. :)
This year, Eddie is just going to take up residence in the tree each morning. I'm sure he will be much more active next year!
