Life Lately According to my iPhone

We are in full fledge Christmas mode over here. A few days ago I received our Christmas cards from Tiny Prints and had so much fun sending them out to our friends and family.

I also love this time of year because we get so much fun mail too. Our fridge is filling up with fun Christmas cards. It makes me so happy whenever I see them.Another one of our traditions is an Advent Tree. So last week  my mom and sister-in-law and I all took the kids to pick out our little trees. They were thrilled. Some of them were actually skipping and dancing on the way to the check out.  Mark and I have never done Elf on the Shelf with the kids until this year. And I am wondering who is having more fun with the silly elf, the parents who find themselves laughing and thinking of new places to hid him every night or the kids. By the way our elf’s name is George Tinsel.

In other news I spotted Santa and Batman on the same day! Elias loves to dress up. I think he would be a different character everyday if I’d let him. Eleanor’s hair is finally long enough to pull back into the tiniest pigtails. I am SO happy! She reminds me of Boo from the Monsters Inc. movie.My brother- David, brother-in-law-Joey, and husband all teach at Classical Christian Schools. And this week David’s school played Joey’s team. Our whole family went to watch. It ended up being such a close game. We were screaming and cheering and being so silly.When we’ve been home, we have been reading We Are Going On A Bear Hunt. Owen loves it so much he has even taken a nap with it. The boys have also had fun acting it out.

We also took Owen back to the ear doctor and he got a clean bill of health. After so many ear infections and tubes it was so nice to hear that he was doing well.

I hope your week is going great!!
