Elf on the Shelf

We finally bought into the Elf on the Shelf craze this year. I had mentioned it last year but Steve acted as if I was crazy, yet he was the one who came home from work Friday all excited about going out and buying one. It took us a couple of stores to find one, in the end Books a Million was the winner. Cooper was pumped! He couldn't wait to hear all about it.



He named our Elf Paolo. Paolo is a guy that Steve used to work with who now lives in New Mexico. He has been gone a while but Cooper still brings him up all the time.



Paolo started out on top of the tv. Since then he has made his way to the top of the door frame, kitchen light fixtures, and window sill. I sure hope he has enough places to rest during the day. Cooper loves it. He is so excited in the morning to look for him. He tells him he loves him. It's the sweetest thing. Hopefully he can keep up the good behavior for Paolo, it sure does make my job easier.

This elf on the shelf thing MUST be the craze this year. I have a couple of friends who just bought it this year.
I like Cooper's name for him. It's interesting!

Would love to know how this goes. I've heard mixed things about it, but the concept seems really cute.
