We have a new addition to our household this Christmas, her name is Sparkles. She is our elf on the shelf.
My daughter had asked a lot last year why a bunch of her friends had elves and she didn’t. I told her she most likely did have an elf watching her, but perhaps they were just too shy to come out and play. This answer made her happy. I told her maybe we would adopt one this year so that the elf would know she is welcome in our home. Well that girl has a good memory, or thanks to the stores she saw it and it helped jog her memory.
Either way one day she was shopping with her grandma and she chose to bring home her own elf on the shelf. I was ok with this as I had planned on searching for one for her and grandma had saved me the trouble! Also saved me the adoption cost which I’ll never complain about.
Now that it’s the end of November, we have snow on the ground and Christmas decorations going up I think that Sparkles is going to start playing around the house.
