Everyone I would like for you to meet "Jingle"-I know it will be hard to look past the unbelievably adorable cuteness in those frames but he is the one hanging from the frame.
See Jingle is our Elf. He is our Elf on the shelf to be precise.
See he came to us last year to watch over the kiddos and report back to the big guy a.k.a Santa. He flies home every night and gives the low down on their behavior, then he comes back before they wake and is hiding in a new spot and they have to find him. Santa says he can't talk to you and you can't touch him or he may loose his powers. Go here to check it out. They sell them at the Barnes and Noble therefor we will be avoiding it if at all possible.
Here he is hanging out on the tree last year
and again on the blinds
He is a mischievous elf and likes to throw ornaments off the tree and last year he once was found hanging out in Wyatt's room where he had played with some toys. Wyatt however did not dig Jingle hanging out in his room so mommy had a talk with him and he stayed out from then on out. You got to admit he is a bit creepy looking!
But seriously this is SOOO much fun and the kids flipped when he was here this morning. Shane read the book to them tonight before bed & it is so cute. This is just one of our MANY Christmas time traditions, you will be hearing about more of them as the month goes on.
