Elf on the Shelf Fun!

The children wanted an Elf on the Shelf last year.  Santa did not send one so late in the season last year, but remembered to send one this year!

Santa sent Tinsel Mistlestar to our home a week before Thanksgiving.  The children were delighted!  They did not want a naughty elf, like their friend's elf.  In his letter to the children, Santa promised that Tinsel would be a good little elf, but could be a bit mischievous at times.  The neighbor's elf was not sent by Santa and was a flunkie from Elf Scout school.  That is why he is a naughty little elf.  Our Tinsel was an Elf Scout graduate!

Tinsel moves around every evening and finds a new place to perch.  Although, one evening he forgot to move!  Little Man assured me that he had not touched the elf.  He was so disappointed that Tinsel had not moved.  But, then something magical happened!  Tinsel moved while Little Man was fixing breakfast and I was in the shower!  Oh, what excitement that brought!

We went to a home school class later that morning.  When we returned, Tinsel had moved again!  Our little elf was playing games!

Tinsel has hid in some obvious spots and a few places that have really caused a wide spread search.  He has shown up at MeeMee's house to keep an eye on Little Man!

With the Christmas season fully upon us, who knows where or what Tinsel may be doing!
