The Return of Rusty the Elf

Rusty is our Elf on the Shelf. On Dec. 1st Rusty magically reappears and his sole responsibility is to watch our children's behavior and report it to Santa each night. When Rusty returns from the North Pole he is in a new resting place and the kids get so excited to find him. During the day when my kids get a little out of control I just remind them "Rusty is watching" and quickly they shape up. I wish he could stay all year round. We have lots of great memories from this wonderful tradition.


We had so much fun in Mesa for Thanksgiving that we forgot to take pictures. So here are just a few.

Grandma Mecham made capes for all the little kids. They had a blast playing around.

Thanks to everyone for a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
