 EEP!!! I'm waiting for mine to come in the mail! My sister and I have been saying we'd do this for about 5 years and never got them. My SIL got one and keeps sending us pics each morning of the Elf (Kensworth) and I just couldn't take it anymore!

Anyhow...there are the NEATEST ideas on Pinterest! So far, my SIL's elf wrote on my niece's face while she was sleeping, got into the flour and sugar in the kitchen and made snow angels, strung blinking colored lights on the Christmas tree, took a string of lights across the livingroom and hung Christmas balls all over it, toilet papered the bathroom...OMG the list goes on and on.

That's great! My son is just understanding santa so I think we'll hold off for a little bit. But what a cute idea it really creates even more magic in x-mas :-)

 It really does! I wish I'd gotten one when my kids were smaller, but I think the women in our family are going to enjoy this a little too much. My SIL cracks herself up doing this!

Nope we don't do it. Having an elf watch you, that's just creepy.

No.  My son thinks it's creepy, so I don't do it.

There are probably ideas on Pinterest.

My son probably wouldn't care about the Elf at all, but if he likes it, it would end up in his bed. Lol.

We dont,I've thought about it but think its something I would do at first and the forget. My kids have mentioned it but then never brought it up again... Just don't think it's something we will do...but it's fun hearing about the fun others are having with it :)
