Chistmas is coming...

He's back!!!  Actually Christmas fun is popping up all over the house this week, but the elf appeared yesterday morning on top of our newly delivered Christmas tree (hopefully this weekend the tree will get out of the box).

Advent calendars appeared yesterday too.  I got chocolate calendars for the kids (they've never had this kind before, so they are pretty excited) and the Santa's beard printable is available right here (just add cotton balls).

World Market has the best shaped pastas.  You wouldn't think the shape of the pasta would change my kids eating habits, but it does.  If the green noodle is shaped like Santa, they actually eat it!

Grandma S turned them on to the Santa Tracker channel this week.  They are loving all the holiday read-a-long stories (and so am I because it gave me time to both cook and clean up dinner last night).

I brought out all the Christmas books and put them in a bin in the living room for easy access.  I didn't remember us having so many, but given the amount of books they read the first night, I'm certainly glad we do!

Jack left a note for the elf along with a book he had written for Santa.  It looks as if the Christmas magic is still alive in my big-hearted, big kid...yay!

Yay!!! Love getting ready for Christmas! and too funny...I thought that the adding cotton balls advent calendar would be the perfect (and easiest) this year since I haven't had much time. I love reading Christmas books too...looks like we have many of the same..shocking! :) Hope that tree turns out to be a good one!

Where did you end up getting your tree? Good to know about the pasta...will have to make a stop there to pick some up.

Did your Elf have directions? You can't touch him or his magic will disappear. Just so you know.
