This is Tornado. He is hanging out in our house until Christmas. He came with instructions that he needed a name. Ethan chose “Tornado”. I saw a post from Angie last year regarding their Elf on the Shelf and thought it looked like a fun tradition. Isn’t he cute? The kids know that Santa isn’t real and that Christmas is about Jesus. So, I guess we don’t the the “Elf on the Shelf” thing exactly as it was intended. We do hide him periodically in different places and the kids have fun finding him. Next year he wont come out of the box until Thanksgiving, but I was too excited to wait this year.
