Brynn had a tough time finding Elf this morning. Grandpa finally asked her to get him a spoon and look what she found!
Here is more info I took from wikipedia.org on Elf:
The book tells how the magic might disappear if the scout elf is touched, so the rule for The Elf on the Shelf states, "There's only one rule that you have to follow, so I will come back and be here tomorrow: Please do not touch me. My magic might go, and Santa won't hear all I've seen or I know." Although families are told not to touch their scout elf, they can talk to it and tell it all their Christmas wishes so that it can report back to Santa accurately.
