Elf on the Shelf

This post has been in edit mode all month. Since some people don't appreciate being blasted with pictures of a slightly creepy Elf each day of December, I waited to show our elf's daily hiding spots in one post. 

We had to remind Jackson to look for the elf the first few days but he quickly started asking, "Where's Elf?" (In case you're wondering, the elf's name is simply "Elf".) Jesse and I were minimally creative and kept the new locations easy to find. We don't follow strict Elf protocol and we allow Jackson to touch him, pick him up, or carry him around. The trio had no interest in the Elf, so we focused on hiding him where Jackson likes or would find funny. One of my all time favorite pictures of Jackson is from last December when he found the Elf on his small potty. I was hoping to capture the look of excitement when Jackson first found the elf each day, but I was unable to get any great reaction shots this month. I at least remembered to document and photograph most days.
