Elf on the Shelf is a huge deal in our house. We have one cute little elf named Sprinkles, who has brown hair and blue eyes, and is the elf equivalent of the same age as my son.
Every year I try to go bigger and better, and so far, after six years, I have managed no repeats. As my son grows, it is getting harder and harder to come up with ideas that are fun, not too gross, and not too babyish. This year I have decided to theme our Elf around careers.
