This weekend is being spent cleaning and sanitizing and trying to get rid of the never ending circle of sickness, but last weekend was the start of the holiday season for us!
Elfie showed up Saturday with the Christmas tree and we spent the day decorating. We buy a new ornament for the kids every year and try to pick one that represents what they loved most… this year for Bobby it was a Skylander and for Cordelia it was Rainbow Dash from MLP. Sunday we went to a children’s Christmas party hosted by my MIL’s work. Cordelia did not like Santa at all this year, Bobby didn’t either at that age… but he sure loves him now! They also got to watch a magician, bobby got a balloon puppy, and we were all treated to a delicious pancake breakfast.
We purchased a deep fryer a few weeks ago and the box that the oil came in was perfect for an impromptu arts and crafts night… so Bobby and I spent the evening turning it in to a robot complete with rocket blaster and oxygen tanks!
Elfie has been appearing all over the house. Bobby loves looking for him every morning – and now he gets to use his North Pole Communicator to speak to the north pole every day until Christmas. Only 19 more days!
