Conversation, ideas and events for parents in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County

My Facebook newsfeed is slowly filling up with some of the cutest photos ever of one of Santa's elves in various scenes around their house. Not knowing what was going on, I did a little investigative research on why all these photos of elves were being posted across the web. Here's what I found:

According to the book, Elf on the Shelf by Carol Aebersold, Santa sends an elf to each house to be his eyes and ears to determine who is naughty and who is nice. Each night, the elf flies back to the North Pole to report back to Santa, and then returns back to the home they came from. Except elves are mischievous creatures and are never found in the same place twice. As a result, every morning kids find their elf in a different place in the house, and sometimes covered with proof of their trickery.

Find out more HERE.

Because I have seen so many crafty scenes being passed along Facebook and the web, I thought it would be fun to share your photos with readers. If you Elf on the Shelf, send me your photo(s) and a brief description of your elfen adventures, and I'll feature them on my blog, The Village.

Side note: While I have found immense humor in some of the naughtier trouble these elves have gotten into, and I will definitely laugh if you send me any of these, don't expect them to be published. :-)

Email me at to be included. Can't wait to see your photos and hear all about your adventures!
