I have had an elf on the shelf for years now and I am so excited to actually use him this year. He even has a name. I researched when to start the Elf on the Shelf and found out that we should start when advent begins (which is tomorrow). Along with Elf on the Shelf, we are going to read a Winter/Holiday/Christmas book to Jordan every night. I made a calendar to plan everything out. I've got the books down, now we just need to get ideas for our Elf on the Shelf, Jingles.
I wanted to put the link to the calendar on here, but I cannot figure it out. If you are interested, either email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or comment with your email and I'll send it to you.
Gotta go get Jingles set up. He makes his appearance to Jordan in the morning! :)
