We've been visited this year by a little guy in red; our very own Elf. The kids have given him the name Schmoopy. Here's how he works...everyday he sits on a shelf and watches the kids and at night, while the kids are sleeping, he flys off to Santa to report on how the kids acted that day. In the morning, when the kids wake up they get to look around to find where Schmoopy has landed for the day. It's always fun to see where he ended up. BUT, there is one stipulation...no one can touch the elf or he loses his power and won't be able to fly back to Santa.
Easton and Olivia have had a fun time looking for him every morning and imagining him flying off to see Santa. We've not had very good luck on the side of what he might be reporting to Santa, it hasn't seemed to phase their behavior any!! Urgh!! I hope this is a tradition we can carry on with our grandkids cause it's a fun one!!
Here's the book that tells the story of the elf!
