Elf on a Shelf with The 4-Crow's 2013- The Arrival


At 6:53 pm, the doorbell rang. Who could possibly be ringing our doorbell on Thanksgiving night? Our Christmas lights had only been on for an hour. Of course my nosy children are all up in the door opening and find this. 

Charley and Malia Peppermint Pattie sitting on our doorstep, with a letter from Santa. 

I don't want my kids to lose sight of what Christmas is really about. It is easy to get caught up in all of the commercialism of the holiday. I want them to know that it is by God's grace that we get gifts and have life. And that truly gifts of works and actions speak so much louder than words and physical gifts. Here is the actual copy of the letter I wrote. I found the blank template from this pin

Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? Won't you please link up and play along once a week until December 26th? You can share seven pictures, a few, or just one of your favorite Elf moments/memories of the week. All you have to do is grab the above button and put your blog link in the linkup form that I will provide each week. I look forward to seeing all of the Elf games and fun you are having!
