(The Past Month) - 11/11/13 - 12/7/13

Well, it's been almost a month since my last post.  Part of me is a little sad it's been that long of a break, but I know that things have just been so busy and something had to give.

So, let's look back at these past few weeks.  November just FLEW by and before we knew it we were gathered for a wonderful Thanksgiving meal.

Tons of yummy food.

And cute babies :)

And celery-eating little boys :)

With Thanksgiving behind us we moved right into CHRISTMAS mode!

We got the lights up on our house,  set up and decorated the tree, hung the stockings and swapped out the fall decor for all things red & green!

We also went to Festival of Trees

Mariah LOVED getting her face painted and sitting on Santa's lap

Madden, on the other hand, was not a fan...

But he would hang out with this dog any day!

Next, a funny little elf arrived at our house!

The kids were very curious and excited about their new friend.

We read the book and they picked out a name for him:

Then began the adventures of Magic the Elf.

Just look at what this little elf was up to this past week!

The first day he built himself a cute little house with the kids' blocks

But he didn't stay there long

The next day he got into my dry erase markers and gave Mariah and Madden's photos a makeover

We've got our hands full with this Elf, I'm tellin' ya! :)

Thankfully he settled down a little bit and spent the next day reading books to his new friends.

Magic was back at it the following day - fishing for Goldfish from high up on the kitchen cabinet.

No rest for Magic!

The next morning he had swapped out our stockings…

{I never thought I'd be posting pictures of our underwear on my blog…}

After a mischievous few days, Magic decided doing some gymnastics from the light fixture would be fun.

The next day he spent sitting atop the Christmas tree.

And just this morning we found Magic playing with the kids' yo-yo

I can only imagine what he will be up to next?! :)


I know it's a busy time for everyone!

I am trying my best to take some time to sit back and enjoy the wonderful life we have with our amazing kids.

I mean look at these two!

They are growing up right before our eyes.

And Madden, my baby boy, will be TWO next Saturday.

Blessings to your and your family this Holiday season!

I will be back with more updates on Magic's adventures SOON!
