Our New Christmas Tradition | The Elf On The Shelf ® ♥
Last year I discovered The Elf On The Shelf ® and thought it was such a lovely idea. I'm all for promoting the magic of Christmas and Santa to my son and I knew that this year, now that Tyler Lee is that bit older and understands what Christmas actually is (oh how his face lights up at a scene of anything Christmassy on the TV or in a book, he's a boy after his mother's own heart!) I've decided to introduce The Elf On The Shelf ® tradition to him.
The Elf On The Shelf ® is a scout elf who families can adopt from the North Pole. The Elf On The Shelf ® watches over your little ones during the day to make sure they're being on their best behaviour to get on Santa's 'nice list'. I would have loved a scout elf when I was a child, all we had was 'Santa's Magic Spot' and if you know what that is then you also had a fab childhood!
Our scout elf's name is Trixiebelle (you may notice that this is also my Twitter name!). Both names 'Trixie' and 'Belle' popped up on a The Elf On The Shelf ® name ideas board on Pinterest and I thought it was just perfect. Trixiebelle will beginning sprinkling her magic around our home and setting her good examples for Tyler Lee come December 1st, the day we register her name at the North Pole and I honestly can't wait to see his reaction, I'm sure he'll just love her!
I shall be posting about all of Trixiebelle's magic and good examples to Tyler Lee on our Instagram @fiandtylerlee and I may just have to share some snippets of her festive adventures in our home, here on the blog too.
