Cookie Time! {Elfie and Elfa – Day 4}

As in the tradition of elf culture, it wasnt long until Elfie and Elfa wanted us to make yummy cookies for Christmas.

They even spelt out cookies in chocolate chips in case we didn’t get the hint with the ingredients and flour snow angels

Elfa was a bit neater than Elfie, as usual, hanging in the bowl with a mixer…

The cookie baking exercise was a big hit…Thomas approved.

I even decided to try instastories this morning.

Letters to Santa {Elfie and Elfa – Day 3}

The kids were on their game this year, writing letters without elf prompting and some even wrote to santa starting in November!

So, the elves decided last night to make the magical trip to the North Pole to hand deliver them to Santa himself.

They brought back a 2018 souvenier with them, to match our 2017 and 2014 ones. Along the way, they picked up some magical sparkly north pole snow!

I have a personal soft spot for snow globes, and seeing the kids share in my adoration is what the holiday season is all about for me. ❤️ We can’t wait to see what the elves get into tomorrow! Until then…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas {Elfie and Elfa -Day 1}

Year seven of our elf visits started this morning. The kids awoke one by one this morning and patiently awaited on the top of the staircase until they were all ready. {Colin was the sleepyhead today!}

Then they were off, filing quickly through the hallway to find the elves this morning in the kitchen.

They didn’t disappoint. Elfa and Elfie had carried the reindeer down the steps and decided that they needed some new colored lights…

Elfie was being his usual silly self.

They brought us yummy hot chocolate and peppermint stir sticks.

Colin was quite excited about that…

Marcus is very happy that the elves have returned!

Molly is happily sharing the elvish tradition with her “babies”…

The ever-cubing Thomas is still loving our December mornings.

…and the wonderment in Colin’s eyes makes all the Christmas seasons magical.

What will they do tomorrow? Who knows! But, I can’t wait to see what the kids find. ❤️
