Does your family have an Elf on the Shelf?

Our family got our elf, Trix, a few Christmases ago and it’s been SO fun!  If you’re not familiar with this tradition, basically, some families get a special visit from one of Santa Claus’ elves. They surprise you all season long, being funny, silly and sometimes doing pranks around the house. But your elf is also watching to see if you’re being naughty or nice. They’re helping Santa make his list and check it twice!

Where does your Elf hide?

Our Elf, Trix is pretty creative. He’s hidden in our freezer with the waffles for our daughter to find when she goes to get breakfast. (lol!) He hid in the garage one time, so we saw him as we were headed to school. What a fun way to start the morning!

There’s a lot of fun when you have an Elf! And ours made a special appearance during one of my 101 Days till Christmas countdown videos that I’ve been sharing on Instagram!

Since then, our daughter has been asking WHEN IS (TRIX) OUR ELF ON THE SHELF COMING BACK?!

Scout Elf Return Week is almost here!

We told her it would probably be soon. Thanksgiving and Christmas are just a few weeks away! And we even went to the official Elf on the Shelf website where they said there’s Scout Elf Return Week!  This year, it’s the week of November 23rd, 2019. But your elf can return anytime before or after that!

We’ll have to wait and see! But I have a feeling Trix will be back before we know it!

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf?

Share in the comments below! I’d love to know what your Elf has been up to and how your family enjoys this fun tradition!

Laughing thru life,
