Do you do elf on a shelf with your kids? I saw my first one of the season posted today from somebody. I think most people start after Thanksgiving. So, do you do this and if so when will yours come out this year?

I thought about it, but we won't be doing it. Santa only fills the stocking anyway and that's accessories to go with the big gifts

We do not do it at all but we love looking at pictures of every one else who does it.   Someone posted on a different blog 25 things their elf did and my dd was on floor laughing at the antics.

We started last year too. We started about midway between Christmas and Thanksgiving last year so I am looking forward to starting on time this year.

So is it that Santa does the stockings and mommy and daddy do all the gifts under the tree?

That is a neat idea to have one for each kid.  Mine just share one.  How old is your DD?
