Tis the Season!

Every year I like to get Maddie and Mason a Christmas decoration or Holiday Tradition starter. This year (with the help of a little elf I know), we got them the "Elf on the Shelf" book and shelf sitter. The idea is that the little elf is placed in a different place every night (after the kids are tucked into bed) and when the kids wake up, they are anxious to see where the little guy is hiding out. The elf watches and listens to the kids the month before Christmas and reports to Santa about their behavior. Amanda is going to take a daily photo of the elf and the kids interactions with him (yet to be named) and we hope to put together a photo book to share with them someday. I can't wait to see how this goes. It sounds like a lot of fun!!!

Josh is not a "cake" person. His favorite dessert is home made apple pie. Maddision insisted that we put 30 candles on it for her Dad's celebration. The smokey look of the picture is due to all the smoke! The menu for his birthday celebration included lasagna, salad, rolls, apple pie and apple crisp. I still can't believe that my baby is 30!
