Just 23 more days till Christmas.
I don't say that to stress you out, just merely to share the joy I have that Christmas is only 23 days away...WOOHOO!
My kids are enjoying this holiday time.
They got to decorate the tree all by themselves
And are now enjoying finding our "Elf on a Shelf" each day.
Have you heard about this cute book and doll?
To keep it brief the elf comes to your house to watch your kids for Santa and report back as to how the kids are behaving.
What is fun is that each day the elf is in a new space watching you (Owen, who is 9, has asked to be able to move the elf around...he knows the deal with Santa).
Last night there was a very heartwarming sight.
All piled in together in one rocking chair.
Owen was reading The Elf on The Shelf to Andrew and Caroline.
It was so nice to see him being such a big help and eagerly participating in the bedtime routine.
And yes they all dressed themselves, hence the mismatched pajamas. I don't bother to correct them because there is quite a sense of accomplishment in being independent and making your own choices.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. What sort of things do you have planned?
For me I have cookies to make for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.
