Look! A post that isn't a video! lol.
Sitting her bored … well … ok, procrastinating … and thought I'd post while waiting for dinner to cook. I DO have a few things to do, what with Christmas Eve being one week from today (!) but I'm sitting pretty good this year. Card are in the mail, presents are all bought, baking has been done. All I have left is to wrap (which I'll do Monday when the kids are at school) and finish the teacher gifts. They are 60% done but I needed to take a break or my back would get angry and cause be grief.
So! I DO have a few crafty things I could post but thought I'd do a Trixie review instead. If you've been following my blog for a while you will know that Trixie is our Elf on the Shelf. This is year five of her visiting us and we all love her dearly. Well … Craig doesn't. He thinks she's ridiculous and has nothing to do with her. Grumpy old Grinch! That's ok. The kids and I love her enough to cover his lack-thereof and every year the kids can't WAIT for Dec 1, when Trixie comes back from the North Pole.
The first year we had her she did "normal" elf things - mainly hide and seek. The kids couldn't wait to get up each morning to find her. No explanation needed for most of them!
She loves us so much she has even followed us on holidays! I won't post all those here but had to share a few faves. In Disneyworld she somehow managed to get inside the Starbucks pastry display ….
Some years she shows up on other holidays like Valentines Day and Easter ...
2013 she was a little more naughty! … but a lot more fun!
Hope it gives those of you counting down the days until the elf LEAVES a few ideas. Only 7 more moves mom! Hang in there … and have a stampy day!
