Elf on a shelf and Dec meme! @ 10:33 pm

Current Mood: busy busy
Tags: ,

So, I got this cute little Christmas tradition called Elf on a Shelf from my step-mom last year to show to Lucian where it has a video and a book along with a little stuffed elf. The story is that the elf is taken out and given a name, and from this he gets his magic to fly back to the North Pole to tell Santa if you've been naughty or nice and what you want for Christmas :P Lucian was still a little too young last year, so I saved it for this year. We watched the video tonight, and Lucian gave his elf the name 'Jack' This is going to be fun LOL! Here's a pic of me and the kids watching the video with his little elf ;) (Of course this is before I realized kids aren't supposed to 'touch' them or they'll lose their magic! LOL! I don't think Lucian will remember that part though :P





We got a lot accomplished today. Did a thorough clean of the house dusting and sweeping/mopping as well as reorganizing the closet. Broke down the baby's swing that he's gotten too big for to bring to the thrift store along with clothes I'd already gone through and set aside for donation. We found crib bumpers for Lucian's old crib (since we needed to switch it out for Nox's co-sleeper... we woke to find him peering over the top of it LOL! I wanted to switch it out before he starts developing upper body strength enough to pull himself up, so he can't climb out and hurt himself.) We found so many awesome toys for the kids! We weren't able to buy many, and I was feeling down about it, but the thrift store had a lot of nice stuff that we would have otherwise never been able to afford new. I spent a good two hours cleaning and bleaching them to get them ready for wrapping. Tomorrow we plan to use Scott's truck and get a tree! =D

I need to get started on my 2nd IP for the week, but our teacher still hasn't given us an updated lecture for last week's chat or any grades... they are supposed to be uploaded no later than Friday's on their side... I feel bad for her loss, but we kind of still have to keep up with the course work. Is that mean of me to feel?

On the flipside, here's a fun little meme that a few of you are doing, and I decided it'd be fun to play as well :)

Pick a date in December and give me something to talk about. Give me a question or topic-- absolutely anything goes - whatever strikes your fancy, and nothing is taboo or TMI, or any of that nonsense. If you're not comfortable asking here, go ahead and PM me.

I usually only make cuts for larger posts... is it giving your computer issues?

I loves my boys! XD I can't wait to see Lucian react this year to putting the tree up. As he gets older and really comprehends what's going on, it all gets very exciting for him, and that just makes me beam with joy :)

December 14: Favorite movies of yours.

Had to google Elf on a Shelf. Very interesting game, very cute.

As for toys, less is more. Seriously, a few great gifts are amazing.

I didn't know what it was until we watched the little movie and read the book. It's really cute, and I think it'll be fun for the boys ;)

I want them to have a good Christmas with lots of toys to play with, but that's just me being a mommy that wants to spoil her babies :)

That's a cute tradition, and I'm glad you were able to find some nice things. :)

December 6th (or another date if that one's taken): How did you come to realize you were kinky? Do you think it's always been a facet of your personality, or did it evolve?

I think it's going to be a lot of fun to see develop over the next few years as Lucian gets older and then gets Nox involved! LOL!

I see you did ask me a question, I don't know how I missed it! :P Fun question too! ;)

LOL, there is actually a Jewish version of this Elf. I can't recall now what the story is, but it is very cute, too.

Not mean at all...there are still responsibilities.

Aww. I think they got that wrong. Children hold such magic, that touching it should only imbue it with MORE 'oomph'. But that's my personal opinion. *Sniffs* *Grins*

*HUGS*

She was on today, I'm actually listening to her chat now. She has yet to grade our works though.

Ha ha, it's all in the spirit of the game. We watched and read the book again this morning, and Lucian keeps looking up at the elf saying "Jack!" LOL!

We never did the Elf on the Shelf thing here at my house. I didn't even hear about it until last year, and my kids were too old at that point, but it sounded kind of fun. The way I heard about it was through my friend at work. Her mother in law gave it to her, and she HATES it, because she's always forgetting to move the elf, and then having to make up stories as to why it didn't move. LOL!

Dec 20 - Now that you've had two kids, and some time to recover from the pregnancy/birth, how do you think the two pregnancies and births compared? Was one better or easier than the other and why?

LOL! Well, at least it's keeping her creative eh? XD We just started it, and so far I've remembered, but with our memory, who knows :P It's fun getting Lucian involved with the myth of it though :P

Good question! =D
