One month a year, many homes get a special visitor just in time for the holidays: the Elf on the Shelf. Click here to view the photos.

Santa's helper keeps an eye on children and reports their behavior to Santa every night, leading up to Christmas. That way the big man at the North Pole knows if they should be on the Naughty or Nice list.

However, the little scout can be mischievous by creating messes, leaving messages and of course making memories as a yearly tradition for families.

Now, a week into December, we're checking to see what your magical little man (or woman) has been up to.

Upload your Elf photos below and tell us about him!
