The kids woke up on St. Nick's Day to find a couple small gifts beneath their stockings. Max and Violet received a visitor sent directly from Santa Claus. Magnitude (as we've named him - you'll get it if you watch Community on NBC) is our Elf on the Shelf watching over them each day. The elf watching them hasn't really "sunk in", but maybe next year, it'll do some good for our naughty behavior. Max also got a nightlight for his bedroom. He was in the stage of "I'm scared of the dark" so we're hoping the nightlight sea turtle will have a good affect on his 3am wakings. So far, so good.
