We left food for the reindeer outside again this year. The kids got bold and braved it without even a shoe, never mind a jacket.
They each had their own technique too. Thomas carefully sprinkled, while Molly tried to, but lasted only a second before turning her bag upside down and dumping the entire contents onto the ground.
Back inside, she was bright eyed in her Santa prep.
Pouring the milk, as Thomas readied the carrots.
Happy Christmas! And Happy New Year!!
The elves today started a slinky race.
Complete with Elva’s best ChaCha impression.
Slinkys are fun.
The elves noticed that it’s the day before Christmas Eve and we haven’t baked a single cookie!!
We quickly fixed that and made several batches for good measure.
Well, it was inevitable that this post would come. In case you were waiting for it, a christmas tree bokeh was made just for you. If not? Well, enjoy it anyway.
Speaking of enjoying, we saw Scrooge the Musical last night. The kids really had fun with it.
In trying to make Thomas not fake pose smile at me, I sang him a little “I Hate People“…
Which resulted in a couple awesome Scrooge inspired faces. lol…
Happy almost Christmas! Three days to go!!
…oh and in case you were wondering?
The elves brought a gift of twister to the kids today. Marcus was the most excited about it, and was actually quite good at contorting his little body in all the twist moves. “Look mommy! I a pretzel!”
The elves broke out the glitter in a last chance effort of making christmas extra magical. I’m happy to report it worked and fun was had by all.
This morning we awoke to sweet treats of candy and music. Thomas happily immersed himself in learning a new song while Marcus happily partook in candy consumption. Molly just danced along.
Elfie and Elva brought out the wool felt and some teeny pearls and string and directed the kids to start tracing! We now have a proper hallway kissing mistletoe. Scratch that… Fifteen little mistletoes.
We went on a scavenger hunt this morning, trying to find the gingerbread man! Once they found him, they took turns hiding the clues in new spots so the others could find it again. Elf success again! 😉
