Since Ellie's favorite things in the whole world are books, I knew this would be the perfect tradition to start out with. The idea is to collect 25 books for each day in December leading up to Christmas and to read one a day. The original pin says to wrap and date each individual book, but I don't have all 25 just yet (we are now up to 19!) so we are just going to grab one out of a bag or box each night to read. The thought of wrapping all of those books tonight made me tired:)
And yes, we have an Elf on the Shelf! He does have a name, you will meet him and hear all about our adventures (hopefully) tomorrow!
