Christmas Traditions

As Drew gets older, we are starting some fun Christmas traditions in our home. This year we are really enjoying the "Elf on a Shelf" that my parents got for us a few years ago. Drew is old enough this year to search for the elf (Ralphie) each day.We have been trying to hide Ralphie in some fairly easy places this year.

I scrapbooked a page about the Elf on a Shelf using this week's sketch at Letsscrap.
We are also enjoying this 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar I made for Drew using a mini muffin tin and some decorated magnet squares.
I've filled each hole in the muffin tin with candy, coins, or a note from Santa. Yesterday, Drew got a note from Santa that told him to go look for a present under the little tree in his bedroom.
One of Jim's employees stopped by the golf course yesterday with a gift for Drew, and we decided to put it under Drew's little tree for his advent gift.
She had gotten Drew a Detroit Tigers Mr. Potato Head. Drew (and Daddy) loved this gift, and Drew is excited to see what else he will find in his advent calendar!

Sounds like you all are having fun counting the days until Christmas.
Glad Ralphie is being used this year.
