Hey, Like I said we received an Elf on the Shelf from Stephen's mom. I have been wanting to start this tradition with my own kids since I heard about it. Though, now I can see some of the hassle of making sure the elf moves every night. Also trying to find places high enough that Ginny nor Miles can get to it as they both would love to play with her. So, we started it a few days later as we couldn't find her, opps. Ginny and I talked about what the Elf will do when she goes back to the "north pole". I then let Ginny give her a name the name is, "Princess Girl." I tried my hardest to come up with a different name that Ginny would like but this name stuck. So, now, Stephen or myself will move the Elf once and awhile. Ginny doesn't care if she doesn't move every night thank goodness. Princess Girl is actually write now hanging on a light in the living room. Ginny gets up every morning and promptly searches for Princess Girl throughout the house. Once I am done with school which is MONDAY. I will be able to focus on making it more fun and make Princess Girl do things. But right now, I am just enjoy seeing Ginny find her each morning.
Hey, Is it wrong that I forgot to take pictures over Thanksgiving break. So, my mom came down on Tuesday of Thanksgiving break. It was a lot of fun to have her there to spend time and to just relax with the family. We were able to just spend time with each other. Miles, of course in all his cuteness was not feeling so hot. Actually, he had a fever most of break and we come to find out on Thanksgiving that he broke a tooth through. My little guy is getting big and is breaking teeth through his gums. So one down and seven more to break through. I have come to find out that he is not an easy teether like his sister. Anyways, it was nice and relaxing to just spend time with the family. Of course the first of December, we started a new tradition in my own little family. We got our own Elf on the Shelf. Ginny, promptly gave it a name of, "Princess Girl." More on the Elf later though. -Kendra
