The next day, he surprised me...um, 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!
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!
