We have an elf in our house, and there's usually a moment of panic somewhere between when the kids fall asleep and before they wake up where I have to remember -- move the elf!

If you're over it, check out the Lazy Gnome.

This magical creature first appeared to a burned out mom named Julie DeForest. She had grown tired of the elf's antics. Here's the gnome's story: he sees everything no matter where he is which means he doesn't have to move and no one has to look for him--no tricks, no gimmicks--just good old-fashioned fear-based omniscience the way Santa intended.
