Elf on the Shelf: Tradition or torment


Our Elf on the Shelf, Vixen, has had quite an entertaining sense of humor this year.

By Correne Martin

Vixen is his name. He’s the Elf on the Shelf in our household. My kids, ages 6 and 3, are infatuated. It’s a contest, every morning, to see who can spy him around the house first. 

Vixen brings the magic of the season, some good lessons, laughs and love to our family. Some nights, he’s more work than others, but I can honestly say, his presence has been wonderful for us.
