This year I found an elf at Costco for only $11.99 (or something). It didn't come with the book, just a daily activity calendar. I knew they'd love it and sure enough, they were SO excited to find an elf in our house the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We named him Roger (Paul's middle name and my grandpa's name).
The girls love searching for elf first thing every morning. And so far I've managed not to forget to move him every night. Here are some of the things Roger has been up to:
Joyriding in the Barbie car
Helping himself to the Nutella and candy corn
Getting into the Hershey Kisses
