Alexa the Elf

After Thanksgiving we gave in and got our girls an Elf on the Shelf.  Kirsten named her Alexa and I made her a skirt, and she is now part of the family!
 So everyday Alexa watches our girls.  Then after they go to sleep, she departs for the north pole to give a report to Santa.  The fun part is that she is always up to some new antics.  The girls wake up every morning so excited to see where she is today. Here are a few of her antics this week.

Playing with Kirsten's DS
 Taking a bath in a bowl of marshmallows 
 Getting stuck stuffing marshmallows in daddy's stocking
This morning we found her as the captive of Darth Tater.  Tomorrow morning she will be having a tea party in the Barbie house (don't ask me how I know that....)

It is fun, but thank goodness it only lasts for a month, because we are running out of ideas!  I found this article about how the Elf on the Shelf will ruin your whole life pretty hilarious and so true.  What we won't do to make our kids happy!

That looks like fun! It looks like whoever thought of that is making a fortune!
