Elfie: A Gift From Santa

Katelyn & Chelsea received a very special package on the morning of Thanksgiving, from none other then himself, Santa Claus! The girls and I were coming inside from playing outback, when we heard the doorbell ring. We all ran to the door to see who it was, and we found a very special package on our door step.

Special DeliveryThe girls knew exactly what it was when they saw the box, and were super eager to open it up to find their very own, Elf on the Shelf!

We have been eagerly awaiting this special package from the North Pole for the last two weeks, because we have been learning all about the Christmas magic through An Elf’s Story!

Elf on the ShelfThe girls understood all of the big concepts about their new Elf already, thanks to our special book and DVD.

  • We need to give our Elf a name before she gets her Christmas Magic.
  • The Elf will lose her Christmas Magic if she is touched.
  • Our Elf flies to the North Pole to see Santa every night when we are sleeping, to report if we were naughty or nice.
  • We will find our Elf in a new place every morning.

Together, we opened the box and read our book, The Elf on the Shelf A Christmas Tradition.

Elf on the Shelf

We talked about a whole bunch of names for our new friend that Santa had sent us and the girls decided on the name, Elfie. A few hours later, the girls went down for a nap. When they woke up, they ran downstairs to re-visit their Elf on the Shelf box only to discover that Elfie was gone!

She had received her Christmas Magic because we gave her a name and when the girls were sleeping, Elfie had flown out of the box to the top of our Christmas tree! The girls were ecstatic when they found her!

Elf on ShelfEvery morning, we all wake up, excited to run downstairs, and search for Elfie!

Thanks Santa!
