Elf on a Shelf

We have a newish family tradition for Christmas. It's a Christmas Elf. Ours is named Scout. We acquired him last December at a Hallmark store and quickly put him to work. Each night he hides in a different place. In the morning, we (Cooper) look for him. But, you can't touch him or he will lose his magic. After we go to bed, he moves to another spot. He watched us all day long to see if we are naughty or nice. We've had a lot of crabby lately. ..Where does that fit. Anyways, on Christmas eve our Elf Scout flys to the North Pole to report back to Santa. This year Cooper wants a Wii. He better be much less CRABBY!
Here is Cooper with Scout.
