The other day when the boys arrived home from school there was a beautifully wrapped box on the front porch. It had no name on it (either to or from). They excitedly brought it inside and asked me if I knew what it was or who it was for. I said "let's open it and see what is inside!"

Will and Harry were so excited! They had heard of the elf on the shelf but this is the first time he has come to our house. They immediately named him "Happy" and he has been going back to the North Pole every night to report on their behavior. They run around each morning looking for where Happy might be the next day. Today, he is in Harry's room. They sure are well behaved when Happy is watching!
Here are a few photos I took as we were decorating our tree a few weeks ago. I won a camera lens in one of the adoption raffles (85 mm) and I was practicing with it so some of the photos are really out of focus. It is a prime lens and not ideal for the situation I was using it but I got a few good ones of Kate. I am not sure if I like the black and white or color better..what do you think?
See, here the tree is in focus and Will is not. Will is hanging one of his favorite ornaments. It is the White House and I bought it when I was lucky enough a few years ago to go see the White House decorations for Christmas.
Kate hanging an ornament I got for her last year.
Harry has a crumb on his cheek. I forgot to retouch it.
He loves his soccer ornament.
