Our Elf on the Shelf!

Well, we have been doing our 25 days to Christmas count down and having fun. Yesterday the girls received their "Elf on the Shelf" and boy was the excitement great! We sat down as a family and read the book and then the girls came up with a name for their Elf. The ones that were flying in the air were "snow, bell, skipper, nibbles, peppermint, spy"and finally the one the girls agreed on "JOLLY"!

Yes, our Elf's name is Jolly. We placed him on the piano last night and the girls awoke this morning to find him hiding on some greenery on the entrainment center. Jolly also left the girls a note letting them know how excited he is to be assigned to the Osborn girls! I can't wait to see where we will find him each day.

We also got an invitation from my friend Carrie about making a green hand print for a wreath that she is making with all her family and friends. This was our project last night and the girls did a fabulous job.

Emily drew baby Jesus in a manger and decorated it with sequence and there is a white star at the top of her middle finger.

Amy drew a Christmas mouse and also colored it an used sequence.

Our project on Monday was making little Christmas trees (using pine cones) and decorating them with sequence (as ornaments). They came out cute.

Here are Emily's!

Here are Amy's!

With all that is going on we are truly enjoying the CHRISTmas season!

I'm thrilled that Santa has sent an elf to your house too. Fiddler arrived to us on Sunday morning and was playing a game when the boys found him that morning. Last night he was tied up under the kitchen table with his feet tangled so no mischief LOL!!! It is exciting.

Glad everyone is on the mend at your house. Nurse Jeno can retire and put on another hat for a while. Maybe the hat of the pampered and spoiled. That would be nice and you deserve it I'm sure. Take care ;-) J
