Elfie is being "bad" according to the kids this year. He has been doing all sorts of crazy things around the house like wrestling Woody with lots of on-lookers, a snowball fight with legos, building a snowman out of marshmallows, and today he's driving a tractor full of dolls around on the dining room table.
One day he drew on one of family photos. I love the mohawk Aaron has here:
I've have 75% of my shopping done and most of that I did on the internet. The only part of Christmas that I dislike is the shopping .... ugghhh. I like everything else: the decorating, the food, the events, the celebrating, the excitement, .... the gifts of what to buy, where to find it, how much we've spent, the limited time I have to shop and my hate for shopping in general is the yucky part for me. Of course without the gift what's the point of the tree with a big space underneath it or why would the kids be super excited? Enough of my Grinching!
"Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a bit more."I thanked Mrs. Collins for the early Christmas gift ..... Christmas comes once a year but we receive "gifts" all the time ... we just have to look for them.
