Wordless Wednesday ~ It's a Wonderful Life with Elf on the Shelf

Last year, I was telling Joe about Elf on the Shelf over dinner.  While I was familiar with the elves and their antics, I was sure Joe didn't know what I was talking about one bit!

The next day, he surprised, I mean Grace...with her own Elf on the Shelf.  We took a couple of days trying to pick a name.  Grace wasn't liking any of the Christmas-y names we suggested.  One of us suggested Maggie and Grace agreed that it was the perfect name for our visitor!

Both this year and last, Maggie has been a tame little elf.  She doesn't get into all the trouble that I've heard some of the other elves get themselves into!  She simply perches high up on the shelves, curtain rods or the hanging light in our dining room.

I suspect she is worried that Grace won't obey the rule about the elves losing their Christmas magic if touched.  But I'm sure next year, Maggie will be feeling a little more comfortable at our house and start being mischievous like her buddies at the North Pole!
