Elf on the Shelf: Day 18 High Places

Do you have random stuff in your house? Yeah. I have no idea where this flour sifter came from but there it is hanging over near the pantry (that we don’t even use as a pantry … don’t start me on that!) We thought that maybe a high place would buy us more elf searching […]

Gifts from the Heart

A gift from the heart is something to treasure. It is a symbol of admiration and love. Not necessarily romantic love, but the love between friends or between a parent and a child. As the holidays inch closer, consider how to show those who you love how much you care for them by giving a […]


Elf on the Shelf: Day 17 More Baking around here

We had more baking at our house the past few days. Kingston apparently felt like he was missing out on the kitchen action and relocated to the kitchen. This is after Brian jumped out of bed to move him. You know how you are all tucked in the covers and THEN remember to move the […]


Elf on the Shelf: Day 16 Elephants Big and Small

Some are stone, some are wood, some are cloth, some are painted, and well I give up. It would be like Bubba’s shrimp dish list from Forest Gump […]

Elf on the Shelf: Day 15 Christmas Cookies

Today is the Girl Scout cookie exchange. Yesterday I made over 8 dozen cookies. Grace and Sophie needed 4 dozen cookies EACH to take with them. I took the day of work to accomplish this task. I think Kingston was looking to steal a cookie that was leftover because of course I couldn’t take them […]


Elf on the Shelf: Day 14 Elf on a Hobby Horse

Sometimes it is just easier to move the elf less than 10 feet away when you realize you still need to move him and you just want to go bed. Yeah, that. Kingston kicked my porcelain doll of her hobby horse to give it a ride. The doll is asleep. I wonder if Kingston will […]

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CleanForTheHolidays #CollectiveBias The holidays are a tough time of year around here. We both work and with just trying to keep up with decluttering from the tornado of three kids, finding even a little time for floor cleaning […]
