Meet Fred - Our Elf

This year I introduced The Elf on the Shelf to the family. We named him Fred so that he may begin his Christmas magic. He is really cute and reports to Santa each night as to whether the kids have been naughty or nice. Then when you wake up the next morning Fred is in a new place to watch what happens in the house. The kids really enjoy this part as they race downstairs to see who can find Fred first. Only a few times have I had to run down before them to help Fred "fly" to a new spot before they got to him. So that part may be taxing to remember to do each day, but it's worth it.
Here are some donations that have flown our way for the auction.
