Lizzie, our Elf on the Shelf

We also have a new addition to our family, for the coming month anyhow. Lizzie, The Elf on the Shelf. Some of you may already know about the visiting Elf at Christmas time, if not it’s a pretty nifty idea. You can read about it at their website but in summary, between Thanksgiving and Christmas each year, an Elf who is Santa’s helper comes to visit each household with children but only stays during the daytime. He or she then returns to Santa each night to report the news of the day and but returns each night to a different location in the household. The children must find him each morning; he generally sits high on a shelf.  The Elf, can indeed speak with adults but not children and must not be touched. Each household Elf has his or her own name, nominated by consensus. We already love Lizzie our Elf :))
