Meet Bernard!

So, do you see anything unusual on our mantel????
Meet J.K. Rowling herself would call him, our house Elf!
Bernard, named by my husband after the one and only original Elf from The Santa Claus, is our Elf on the Shelf.

This is one of the cutest little traditions ever. The book goes....your Elf watches the children all day and "reports" back to Santa at night...only to "appear" the next morning in a different spot. So not only can you use it as a tool to try and keep your kids to be good....but it becomes a fun little hide and seek game as well!! Even though Lane is too young to really get this, I still brought him out this year! I have caught Lane stealing a glance up at him!
