Meet Wally

our newest addition to our family tradition!!! ha ha.
My friend had heard of this cute little "game" to play during the holidays that helps to keep your children behaving and adds lots of memories in the process. It is called Elf on the Shelf. Your family elf arrives each Christmas season and sits on a shelf to watch the kids and report back to Santa. The kids cannot touch him or he loses his magic and each night he leaves the house to report back on good or bad behavior. So that means that every morning he is in a new spot. That is the fun...where will the elf be?
My kids were a little skeptical last night...but this morning they both woke up and ran around the house to find Wally. They had such a good time and it was fun to listen to where they thought he was and hear there little feet running around.
I cannot wait to see where Wally will appear tomorrow morning. If I remember to move him tonight!!!
Here is more info on our new little friend:
