Elf on the Shelf

Our Scout Elf showed up in the middle of the night last night! I know this because Maddie came running in my room around 3:30 am and said she woke up and saw the elf in the tree in her room. She was half asleep, half excited and half dreaming. She said she didn't know if it was her imagination or if her elf was REALLY here! I told her to go back to sleep and we'd investigate in the morning.

So this morning at a more decent 7 am they came dancing in my room so excited to tell me the elf really was here and that it was most definitely a girl elf this year. Some families get the same elf each year but we like keeping our home open to a new elf each year. Makes things more exciting. So they started brainstorming and came up with the name Rainbow for this year's elf. Yes, they are almost five and Rainbow is a perfect five year old girl elf name! Previous elf visitors to our house have been Zoe-Zoe, Charlie, Ginger and now we can share our home with Rainbow. Merry Christmas Y'all!
