We had our Elf "delivered" to our front door one night. Delivered meaning Daddy placed her sitting on top of her box at our front door and then knocked while we were upstairs getting ready for bed. When the girls heard it they wanted to know who was at our door at bedtime. They were so excited to find our Elf on the Shelf! That night we read her special book, which is basically an instruction manual for her in a cute rhyming text. It told the girls that we had to pick out a name for her and how she listens to hear if they are good or bad and then tells Santa. It also lets them know that they are not allowed to touch her or she will loose her magic.
Now for the real fun, every morning she is in a different place in the house. Sometimes it is just sitting or hanging somewhere and sometimes it is a whole little scene. Here is what our Elf, Ginger has been up to so far :)
Ginger for Ginger ~ we think she likes her name!

Ginger loves our Wedgits as much as we do!
Do you have an Elf on the Shelf, what is your favorite part of this tradition?
Check back soon to see more of the fun that we have with our Elf, Ginger as we prepare for Christmas!!
