Christmas dawned bright and early and lucky for us it was even a white Christmas (the only day I find snow to be acceptable and wanted....)! Trevor and I were up, but no kids. Hmm... Someday they'll be waking us up, but today we had to wake them up!

Just days before Christmas we woke up to find, Dash, our elf on the shelf, had brought us a fun little project to do as a family. It was a gingerbread house kit. We haven't ever made a gingerbread house before so this was a new and fun thing to try out! There was just one problem....
Remember back when you were a little kid in school and you made those paper chains to countdown for Christmas? Well, I do. It was so fun to tear off a link of the chain each day in anticipation of Christmas, and then counting down how many days until Santa Claus would come. Sometimes I even got a little too excited and would rip off more than one. Then even though my chain may have said there were only 5 days left, it really was 6 or 7.

On Thanksgiving night, we were at my Mom's house hanging out with the fam when we decided to read a new book to Brody and Ryder. This book was extra special. It was The Elf on the Shelf. As I sat on the floor and read it for all to hear, we learned all about the magic of the elf and the job that he or she does.
