    Because the holidays are so busy, it’s easy to get behind on all things elf. But not with these helpful templates! I print them out after Thanksgiving, along with my elf arrival and goodbye letters. Then I start planning!

    One of my family’s favorite Christmas traditions is elf on the shelf. My kids love finding him each morning in December and I love seeing their faces light up with excitement each day. Over the years, I’ve compiled a list of 50+ elf ideas and many of you have requested a planning calendar and checklist. You ask and I deliver. ;)

    Some days I have more creative and funny ideas than others. And then there are days where I’m lucky if I remember to move him to a “new” spot. If I happen to forget, I just tell them “Boe” (our elf name) was so tired last night that he slept in. Ha!

    This year I’m prepared to be more organized, so that I don’t have to hop out of bed at midnight because I forgot to move him. ;) If you don’t have one yet, here’s the elf  that I bought. I know some people don’t love this tradition….but I love the “magic” it brings at Christmas time. Totally worth the extra effort in my opinion!
