Olivia has an Elf on the Shelf. For those of you that don't know what they are, they are Santa's naughty/nice reconnaissance elves. The kids aren't allowed to touch the elves otherwise they lose their power and can't report back to Santa. They move to a new place each night and it was very exciting for Olivia to find hers in the morning.
Here are a few of Miss Elf's hangouts from this year...
One of her first nights in Charleston, she put up all of the Christmas decorations while everyone was sleeping...well, almost everyone.
One night, she decided to grab a little marshmallow snack in the kitchen. An elf has to keep up her strength for all the flying to the North Pole and back.
One of her last nights with us, she decided to enjoy the glow and warmth from the tree lights. Her sunglasses were made from the Ghiradelli peppermint bark she broke into the previous night.
We will miss her and can't wait to see her next time she pops in.
