Sometimes a story is best told without words.
And, there are times when we hear best with our eyes.

Our Christmas season has, so far, been grand.  Lots of elf hiding,
holiday decorating, Christmas song singing, lights twinkling,
secret gift-buying, and heart filling moments have been had.

We're still planning on even more moments of sweetness,
cookie baking, pie making, gift wrapping, candy eating,
Christmas movie watching, and family gatherings.  All the
goodness that this season brings has been blessed heavily
upon us this year and I am ever so grateful.

" I will not eat all the candy.
  I will not eat all the candy.
  I will not eat all the candy. 
  I will not...."


Something tells me he got a little distracted by the candy.  And, he didn't leave one little piece for me!

Elf on the Shelf : Day 13

Last night the hubby and I
spent the night away.
It was SO nice to have that
time away especially
during this time of the year.


A spontaneous night out to eat and even a hotel stay with my man?  Don't mind if I do.  ❤   *a funny aside - I think my girls were a little shocked that I knew how to apply eye shadow, lol. I think this night out was long overdue!

We had dinner out, a hotel room,
breakfast this morning and some
Christmas shopping.


Missing last night's hotel stay. But I do like playing around with the #over app.


Of course, since we weren't home,
my kids stayed with my mom and dad next door
and while we were away, the girls hid Buddy
for us to find when we got home.

I found him hanging around in
our Christmas stockings.
I think he's so cute!

Elf on the Shelf : Day 10

I caught him trying to decorate
my big candy cane wreath.

I suppose it could use some lights.

Elf on the Shelf : Day 7


Someone is hanging out in the fridge!
He must be missing the North Pole weather.


Day 7 : Elf on the Shelf

He may want to stay in there for the rest of the day
since we haven't been out of the mid-seventies for a week!

Day 6 : Elf on the Shelf


I'm sure the kids will get their day started off
on the right foot with this little stunt.
