Most of you may already know what the elf on shelf is all about, but for those that don't, he is an elf that watches your kids and then reports back to Santa every night on how they are doing. Then, the next morning he is in a new hiding spot and the kids have to go find him. I have to admit I am really enjoying finding a new place for him every night.
James is a good sport and plays along for the sake of Claire and my raised eyebrow I might add. I think he likes to hear Claire squeal in the morning when she finds him, she is so excited that he really flew away and spoke to Santa. Now, there are some nights I am too tired and I forget to move him and then I feel horrible because Claire says, "Mom, I was good yesterday, why didn't Zeke go and tell Santa?" I tell her that I am sure he did but he just likes to got back to that spot! My husband decided to feed Zeke Lorna Doone cookies because he wanted to see what Claire would think about the crumbs. She couldn't believe he ate cookies just like Santa! I would say by the looks of it, poor Zeke has a belly ache!
I have the feeling that Zeke thinks he is in the North Pole right now talking to Santa. I think he needs to lay off of those cookies, don't you?
Move over Santa, there is a new driver in town!
