This year we have started a new tradition, Elf on the shelf. Noah and Maleah have a new friend named Henry (Noah named him) that arrives after Thanksgiving and stays over the month of December to watch the kids and report back to Santa. Each day he reappears in a different spot in the house after returning to Santa to report our children's behavior. They are not allowed to touch Henry as his magical powers would be taken away, so they are only allowed to talk to him. Also, if there are good reports to Santa, when they wake up, Henry has a special treat waiting for them in their advent box. Noah has really taken interest in Henry. Each morning when we get out of bed he runs around the house looking for Henry. Then, he checks his box for a treat, and finally runs to Henry to say thank you. Here is a picture of Noah and Henry.
