Sam the Elf - My Knight and Shining Armor!

I don't know if you have gotten the "Elf on the Shelf" for your children or not, but it is one of the cutest little investments we have made for our family. The North Pole sent us our elf last year and we named him Sam. Each year, he comes to our house before Christmas to watch and see how the kids are doing. Every night, he flys back to the North Pole and reports to Santa all the good and the bad of that day. He then returns back to our house and sits in a different spot. Each morning, the first thing the kids do when they wake up is try and find where Sam is at.

Today was Sam's first day back for the season and guess what happened? Landen was helping Gabrielle with everything she needed. Gabrielle wanted Landen to play with her in her room. Landen got Gabrielle's toothbrush all ready for her. Gabrielle made a picture for Landen. The kids started making cards for Sam. They wanted me to make him a plate for dinner. We even went to Target and Landen asked if he could get Sam something! All of this, and I didn't even ask for it!!! Thank you, Sam!

I am telling you, if you have not made this investment, you should seriously consider it. When the season gets a little hectic and crazy and your kids are driving you nuts about anything and everything, pull out your elf and watch the changes instantly! Our Sam is my knight and shining armor each year! He brings a lot of love, peace and joy to our house and the kids absolutely fall head over heels for this little magical guy.
