Day 5 Elf on the Shelf

Goodbye Elf on The Shelf: We Won’t Miss You

Shh… Don’t tell my kids but our Elf on the Shelf, Elfie, has left the building. Little cute, mischievous Elfie went to a new home. Where he will be loved dearly I am sure. Last year Elfie did not even make an appearance at our house. The one thing about the Elf on the Shelf…
