The Elf Rides In
Santa's little helper made his first appearance in our house [on horseback] this morning & what a difference he has made! As I have been power-organizing the house for the last couple of weeks [in preparation for the holidays], the kids haven't been on their best behavior... until now, under the close watch of Santa's tiny messenger. "The Elf on the Shelf" is a magical [& genius] Christmas tradition for ALL to enjoy.
I'm just praying the novelty lasts long enough to get us through my first round of pie crusts this season, the one time during the holidays that I need this little red crutch the most.
Happy trails to all, & to all a good night!
