This year we decided to start the tradition of Elf on the Shelf. The story behind the elf is that Santa sends the elf to a family to observe and report back the actions of the family he is assigned to. You can not touch the elf or he loses his magic. Each morning the elf returns to a different location in the house. 
We named our elf Ralphy, though Tanner kept insisting Santa and Puppy were great names. 
The first few days the boys didn't seem too interested. As the month wore on the boys excitedly looked for him in the morning. Tanner would greet him with a "High Ralphy!" I overheard Dillan talking to him once saying, "Hi! Hi baby boy!" 

I missed one day. Ralphy was in the Tahoe under the visor. 
This year The Elf on the Shelf had no more meaning than a fun game of hide and seek. I liked it. I don't know if Ralphy will ever tattle to Santa.
