In case you haven’t heard of Elf on the Shelf before, this is a fun tradition to do with your littles. Some people bring out their elf the day after Thanksgiving or the first day of December. Others choose to shelf their elves until the last week or two before Christmas. When the elf makes its appearance, it supposedly keeps its eye on the kids and reports back to Santa who’s been naughty or nice. The elf shows up in a new place every morning, and some are less prone to mayhem than others.
Since our Twinkle showed up on a Saturday, she was a very good elf and prepared for the Sabbath by opening up a personal progress book and her scriptures. She couldn’t resist the pretty scripture ribbons, though, and did play a little.
