Elf on a shelf

Meet Penelope, my family’s Elf on the Shelf!! Santa sent our elf via special delivery from the North Pole to keep an eye on my 4 kids to see if they were being naughty or nice!!

Every night, Penelope reports back to Santa and every morning, the kids are supposed to search for Penelope! I wish I had an elf for every day of the year, today was the first time ever my kids jumped out of bed on a school day!!

This morning on morning one, we found Penelope having a “bubble bath” in the kitchen:

  1. i need to find one of these elves. we are always looking for ways for our kids to be mindful of their attitudes and behavior this will be a fun one for them to do 🙂

  2. What a cute idea! I never saw the elf before but have been hearing people talk about it. I will have to tell my daughters about this. Hopefully it works on their kids for them lol
