"The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition"

My college roommate Andi (mother of three) blogged about this new Christmas tradition for her family and I knew we had to feature it for all of you.

Andi said, "Our family has started a new tradition this year. It's called The Elf on the Shelf. Have you ever wondered just how does Santa know if you've been naughty or nice? It's all because of the Elf on the Shelf!

I don't want to give too much of this book away, but if you have kids I highly recommend this precious book. It's about a magic elf who comes to live with you during Christmas time and magically flies to Santa every night to give him a report on whether you've been good or bad. The elf then magically flies back home before you awake. We named our elf Snowflake and every morning my kids run to see just where Snowflake landed. They get so excited when they find him. He's also helped with discipline at our house because the kids know Snowflake is watching them and they want him to report good things to Santa.

I had no idea this book would bring sooo much fun to our house. It's definitely worth the $30 bucks. Click here to get your very own copy of The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition. I promise you won't be disappointed!!!"

If you live on the gulf coast the store Mulberry Bush in Gulfport has them. I walked in there last weekend and they had them.
