Hanukkah Fun!

Happy Hanukkah to you ! Our elves were playing with a homemade dreidel yesterday so the boys and I got in on the fun, too! (There are plenty of places on the web to print off a dreidel template and instructions for this simple game-or make your own using a small milk carton and a pencil)

Mrs. Claus finally found sometime to wrap the main Santa gifts for 'J' and 'A'. She tells me she hopes to add red ribbon, but that glitter isn't staying on that well so we shall see!

I'm off to get a mammogram this morning! I look at it as another Christmas present to my family and to me, although, it might be inappropriate to wear big red bows for my appointment...

They're early!! Toby and Jingles have arrived! When the boys hung up their coats yesterday after school they found two chocolate advent calendars and a note that read,

'Merry Christmas!! We are so excited to be coming to get the tree this weekend!

We circled the day we will be here on your calendars-

only eat one chocolate a day-or we'll have to tell Santa!

See you soon!


jingles and toby


there were a couple of really tired boys here last night and the car started acting up on the way to McDonalds, so we couldn't go And DS6 hurt his finger when we got home... you get the picture, right? DS6 just wished his elf was here to cuddle and... poof... outside the window appeared the 2 moose and 2 elves! Aren't Christmastime wishes the best of all?
