"Smiling's My Favorite."

Photobucket

So far, December has been great to us, other than the typical post-grandparent-attention-spoiled-unruly-state that my girls are in. I know most of you don't believe me, because when you see them they are oh so sweet, but really, they are testing me. I swear that they are!

It helps that Twinkle Feather-Bottom has come to keep a watch on things for Santa. Blondie keeps asking me, "Mom, what's Tinkle doing?" I remind her, that if she really really wants that Sleeping Beauty doll, then she has to be a very good girl so Tinkle can tell Santa to bring it. She then makes an honest effort for about 5 minutes claiming that she is, "going to clean her room."
I think only one shoe was put away.



We watched Elf tonight. I laughed so so so hard.

They are obsessed with the tree. The girls are...obessed and attracted like little bugs to it. We have had only one fatality. A ceramic angel that was placed a little to low for Miss Mae to resist.

Today, they discovered that the 5 year old candy canes could be unwrapped. Is that healthy? What's the shelf life on those babies anyway?

I'm making an honest effort in simplifying things this year and try to focus more on the Savior. Tonight, we read from Luke and learned the importance of gratitude and faith. Truly things that have the power to "make us whole."

I LOVE Twinkle!! And I love that idea....we've just been telling ours that you never know when the elves might be peeking in your window....I've been leaving the boy's open. he keeps saying "i want to be on the NICE list"

I am so nervous for the decorating of the tree situation....I have a feeling it will not go over well with sue and that many a thing will be destroyed.

Ok....one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies ever.....I can't get enough of it! Also, that picture is amazing! It looks like a Christmas card! You should def frame that and put it out every year.

"Elf" makes me laugh harder than any other movie. I can't get enough of it. It's the best. Love the little no shirt look with the tree. Super cute.

Twinkle is a great idea. We'll have to use that for next year.

Your pictures are so beautiful. We are putting up our tree this weekend too. I had a theme last year of Americana. It's pretty cute. I can't wait to have a little elf around my house. But there are no kids yet.....hmmmm maybe someday! Merry Christmas!
