Meet Russell. Russell is our Elf on the Shelf elf. Simple and really cute idea… the story says that your elf watches over you during the day then reports back to Santa in the night… When you wake up the next morning, your elf will be in a new location. I LOVE that this little quirky elf named Russell has my kids making their beds, picking up their rooms, and being super over-the-top sweet to each other. They even SHARED last night… I know. Crazy, huh?
