Oh my, we are into the Christmas Tradtion, "The Elf on the Shelf"... Layton is just precious. I love a child's imagination!
The synopsis of this tradition is:
"The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition™ is an activity the entire family will enjoy. Based on the tradition Carol Aebersold began with her family in the 1970s, this cleverly rhymed children's book explains that Santa knows who is naughty and/or nice because he sends a scout elf to every home. During the holiday season, the elf watches children by day and reports to Santa each night. When children awake, the elf has returned from the North Pole and can be found hiding in a different location. This activity allows The Elf on the Shelf to become a delightful hide-and-seek game."
Lauren called me tonight, Layton is looking on the Ipad to see pics of the elf, which we named "Chippey" from the movie. I had to send him a pic of "Chippey", which you see above! He sooooo believes!
