Elf on the Shelf Ideas

I am trying to keep a photo history of all Cali the Elf's locations this year so I can make my daughter a photo album. She always misses her Elf during the year so what better way to remember him than to have photos!! I need to remember to get her in some of the photos too!!

Our Elf is climber!

This is where we found him this morning. My six year old is worried that he will pull the tree over... because he weighs so much. :) Sweet girl. I love that she still believes. I hope this faith lasts forever!
