Elf on the shelf
Do any of you do elf on the shelf this year? Meet Ernie. He gets around, and even helps himself to marshmallows! My three year old grandson, Mason, doesn't understand the significance of Ernie. But my seven year old granddaughter, Alivia, sure does. You don't touch Ernie, or he'll go away. And he's always watching. It's funny to watch Alivia when she comes home from school because her eyes immediate look for, and zero in on him as soon as she walks in the door. We learned early on that you put Ernie up high enough for Mason not to be able to reach him. Thank goodness Alivia didn't see him pick Ernie up the day daddy put him on the log in the fireplace, she would have freaked!
