We decided to jump on the bandwagon and get ourselves and Elf on the Shelf. We read the story, named our elf (Jack), and I attempted to keep up with my daily obligation of moving him. I must say it's hard to remember to move him each night... I usually quickly put him in a new spot before running out the door to pick Caden up from preschool. But it was okay because Caden was too young to know the difference. My biggest failure was writing a "farewell from Jack" letter and then tossing Jack into my desk on Christmas Eve. It only took a few days for Caden to stumble upon him in there and say, "What is Jack doing in theeeeeerrrrrreee! He's supposed to be with Santa!" Oops! 2013 resolution #847: follow the Elf on the Shelf rules because Caden will be 4 next Christmas, and 4 year olds don't mess around!
