I love that the kids would "listen" and behave- but this completely would freak me out if i were a kid- an elf is in my house watching- then everynight he goes to report back to santa while i am asleep- and then is moving around the house. lol
My neice and nephew LOVE it- i really should become a follower too!


actually the first day, my 6 year old was freaked out...she was kind of scared to go to bed as she didn't trust this elf. We talked a lot, she understood that he was Santa's friend and by morning, it was all good...but you are right...it could be a touchy subject! lol



Ours is more just a game, Leanne. My kids know that I'm the one doing the tricks with the elf but they still think that it is hilarious!!! And I am admittedly having too much fun concocting mischief, LOL!

I really wished I had bought stock in the elf on the shelf company!

I told my dck's all about "Mario" and that if you are in my house he could tell Santa if they were good or bad! Works wonders for most! :)

I've been following your Elf on Facebook :) Very creative. I thought of doing it this year, but Addy is still a bit young. Next year for sure!
