Real Life Elf On The Shelf

Real Life Elf On The Shelf

In the magic of the Christmas spirit, families across the nation participate in the “Elf on a Shelf” tradition, where a Christmas elf watches over the home’s children to ensure they are indeed being nice, and deserve their Christmas wishes. The elf then “delivers” that information to Santa.

Father of six, Alan Lawrence never had an “Elf on the Shelf” growing up–but he was always intrigued by it. Then one day, someone mentioned his little 4-month-old baby boy looked like a cute elf, and the world was given this gem!Continue reading

Happy Friday, Friends! Are y’all as EXCITED about CHRISTMAS BREAK as we are!?!? Our kiddos worked EXTRA HARD this week, and completed all of their schoolwork and tests yesterday. So we had NO SCHOOL TODAY! YAY!!! And Patrick was THRILLED because the day that he has been counting down for all year was finally HERE!

No, I am not talking about Christmas. I am talking about the new Star Wars movie…

To CELEBRATE their achievement on finishing up the semester strong, our sweet little elves, Holly and Jolly, brought them an unexpected SURPRISE this morning! They had movie ticket to go see the NEW Star Wars movie (The Force Awakens), NEW Star Wars shirts laid out, and a stack of all of their favorite candy. The kids could hardly contain their EXCITEMENT when they saw all of their GOODIES that the elves brought for them!Continue reading

Is This Too Soon To Post?

Is this too SOON to post? Or are y’all just excited about Christmas as we are!?!? This has been one HOT SUMMER here is Louisiana. Now don’t get us wrong, we honestly LOVE Summertime, but it seems that this year the temperatures have been especially BRUTAL. And we love spending time outdoors, and this HEAT has been stopping us from doing so for the majority of the daytime hours.

With that being said, we will happily WELCOME FALL with open arms! Which season are you looking forward to? 🙂

“Christmas Cheer In May” What’s In Your Mug/Five Things You Should Know About This Picture

Happy Sunday Morning, Friends! This morning we are switching things up a bit! I decided to combine 2 of our favorite types of posts into one! Because, there was really no way that I could not tell y’all the behind the scenes of what transpired this morning. So, sit back with a cup of coffee, and enjoy the next few minutes of hilarity that this post will add to your day….

1. This is an over-sized (Can hold at least 4 cups of coffee at a time! AMEN!) Christmas mug that we purchased after Christmas last year at Walmart. I love shopping after season for items simply because this is when they all go on sale, and can be found at hugely reduced prices. This mug must have somehow escaped the after Christmas crowd, and was pushed behind a few plants in the garden center. When we got to the register, it rang up at a whopping…. $0.48! My inner frugal mamma was so happy, I almost kissed the cashier! Continue reading
