    Elf Fun Day 3 – With a Basket Asking for Toys Donation

    I am now convinced that my kids’ elves are good elves. Today they came back by our Christmas Tree with a message “It’s nice to give too 🙂 Please fill up this basket with toys you want to give and I will take them to the North Pole for other kids.” This is something that all kids should learn that Christmas is not just about receiving – IT IS ALSO GIVING.

    Christmas Tree is Up Early This Year – Red and Gold Theme

    Christmas is my favorite holiday and even though I know it seems early to put the christmas tree up, we still did it. We used to bring it up on the Saturday after Thanksgiving but we wanted to enjoy the Christmas spirit longer this year, hence the decision to do it early. I decided to go for festive colors this time – red and gold – what can be more festive than that. All the decorations that I put on there were old and were mostly purchased from Hobby Lobby when they did their 90% after Christmas Sale. On our tv console fireplace, there goes the nativity set and right…
