The Elf on the Shelf

This morning Rachel woke up to find that Jack the Elf had returned for another Christmas season!
She was really excited to have him back again this year. He left her a little piece of candy and note thanking her for sending him back to Santa.  This summer we were going through some boxes and accidentally found Jack-oops! I guess I need to find a better spot for Jack to hide out after Christmas is over this year.

This will be the fourth year for Jack to visit us.   We even took him along to Montana a few years ago for our Christmas visit there. I am discovering that I need to really think these "traditions" through a little more before I start them up- I never imagined a little elf could be so much work! But it makes Rachel smile-so it is worth it.

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    Where did that cute litte elf come from. My kids would love that!

  2. I bought our elf from a catalog several years ago. But I was in a Hallmark store yesterday and they had a bunch of them! And probably sells them too!
