Our elf’s name is Scout Crayola Gilgemesh, he came to live with us in November of 2007. And each year thereafter, he appears the day after Thanksgiving. His job in our home is to listen to Christmas wishes and take note for Santa of all that we say and do. Each night, he flies back to the North Pole and reports to the “Big Guy”. Scout returns before we wake the next day and perches himself in a new location. The kids love to jump out of bed and be the first to find our special friend. There is only one rule to follow: we must not touch him or his magic will go. Scout heads back to The North Pole on Christmas Eve for the rest of the year. We hate to see him go but take comfort in knowing, he will be back at holiday time next year.
