Last year, we introduced our children to The Elf on the Shelf. We even watched the DVD and read the book. Our children couldn't agree on a name for him, so they named him Bob Jake Luke Makenzie, Jr. We call him 'Bob' for short. Ever since last year, Bob has been keeping a watchful eye on the children from the beginning of December until Christmas Eve. He hides in a different spot around the house, so the children have fun trying to find him every morning.
One morning recently, the children found a note from Bob with the words "Be good" on it. Well, they promptly ignored that advice, but decided to leave him a note of their own. Our nearly 7 year old daughter had been practicing letter writing at school, so she took on the task of writing a letter out that reflected the thoughts of all three children . . .
On the morning the children found that note from Bob, he was sitting on top of the curtain rod in the living room, which explains how the children's letter was addressed . . .
