Our elf visited...a sure sign the season is here. Thanks to other school-aged kids, we started this tradition and have to admit, though tedious at times and easy to forget, it is still fun to see excitement from one (or giggles and smirks from others). A little person who got curious with baby powder / marshmallows / toilet paper while we slept? I mean, it's funny.
Thankfully, we've had time to relax and enjoy the season for what it's meant for also. We kicked the season off with a beautiful Thanksgiving at my parents' house.

So, now it is onto school parties, family gatherings and fun like that. I'm keeping busy with volunteering, and keeping up with the household. Of course, made possible with the help of my kids. Here's an example:
Cole from upstairs: Hey mom! I made less laundry for you.
Me: Great! How'd you do that?
Cole: I just shoved my foot real hard in the hamper.
See? Great helpers.
