I am so excited about doing the Elf on the Shelf this year with my kiddo's!! Since my children aren't young anymore, this helps me create more fun memories. Today, we started back to school after Thanksgiving break and there was a letter waiting from Santa! It was very encouraging and he has asked the children to help teach his little helper all about the love of Jesus and how to listen well in school.
So, our next step was naming our elf. Because I have an overwhelming number of boys, I purchased a girl elf. The children picked six names to vote on. They came up with Lollipop, Lucy, Jet Ski, Flower, Whisper and Glitter. Now wouldn't you know that the boys voted overwhelming for JET SKI!!! Oh well.....it's their elf. Hehe
So our next task was to spot Jet Ski. Wouldn't you know she was hanging out in the reading loft with a good book. She had helped herself to our "Kiss Your Brain" jar and grabbed her a pack of Skittles to snack on!
Oh I can't wait to see what she does tomorrow!
