The Elf on the Shelf craze hit our house early December. I spent a lot of time looking in our limited stores for the little guy that goes with the book, but everywhere was sold out. A saleslady told me to use any elf, and she had just the right one for us.
Tyler bizarrely named him "Boy Doody" and we all laughed but the name has stuck. We've taken pictures of some of his clever resting spots. I can't wait for next year when he comes back from the North Pole and both boys can laugh at his positions. Thanks to Pinterest and other websites for ideas for this tired mom.
