Slinkys are fun.

Cookies for Santa!

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.

The obligatory tree bokeh post.

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.51/52/Life - Tree Bokeh

Speaking of enjoying, we saw Scrooge the Musical last night. The kids really had fun with it.
Seeing Scrooge, The Musical with the two older kids. :)

In trying to make Thomas not fake pose smile at me, I sang him a little “I Hate People“…

Happy almost Christmas! Three days to go!!

…oh and in case you were wondering?

ELF-PONG!!

Come on baby, let’s do the twist.

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!”

Sweet sounds of Christmas.

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.

Fifteen little mistletoes.

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.

ELF FUN

The elves took out our pompoms and we decorated some elves. They even made us some ears to elf ourselves.

Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

It snowed early this week, and it’s finally warmed up enough for the kids to happily play outside in it (yes, they are lightweights).

Of course I followed with my camera. Got a couple shots in, and then noticed something…
Frosty Impersonation

I had a flash of deja vu with this one.
