Elf on the Shelf

Every night we have an elf that visits our house and watches our children, reporting back to Santa whether or not they are being good. This year our oldest has decided to start writing letters to our elf.  The elf’s name is Alex, and he hides somewhere new each night, but sometimes he gets into a little bit of trouble. Check out some of the fun times our elf has already had this holiday season.

He brought donuts for breakfast, including mini ones for himself.
