Elf on the Shelf – Year 3, Day 12

Sifting through my office last night, Ruettiger came across an decorative jester mask that my Aunty bought for me years ago at a Christmas craft fair. He liked it so much that he brought it upstairs and modeled it for the boys! Easton was less than impressed, but Deklan thought it was pretty cool.

One thought on “Elf on the Shelf – Year 3, Day 12

  1. Christmas has always been a family celebration in the Grinkmeyer home, but as our children grew older we found that their interest in Christmas morning waned and the sparkle in their eyes was gone. The day after Thanksgiving, 1992, we introduced the Christmas Web in our home with the placement of Magic Wands into their socks that had for years been hung at the fireplace mantel. Attached to each Magic Wand was a piece of yarn (a 70 yard piece of yarn). When our two teen-aged children came down Christmas morning, they found that the yarn was wound through the house – around window latches, door knobs, chairs and doors. It ended in a closet or cabinet which held their special Christmas gift from one of Santa’s elves, an elf that had been looking out for them for the past year and knew of their desire for this special Christmas gift.
    The Christmas Web continued as each of our children got married and as they had children. Each of our grandchildren have an Elf on the Shelf or Elf Magic elf who is now the elf that hides their special Christmas gift each year and leads them to it with their individual Magic Wand.
    We now have seven Magic Wands each with 70 yards of yarn winding through our house every Christmas morning, making getting a cup of coffee an acrobatic achievement before the winding hunt begins.
