Christmas Elf

Hello all,

I'm starting to get back into the swing of things.  I spent some time in my craft room cleaning last week.  YIKES!   I'm glad that I made some progress... but I'm reminded of how far I have left to go.   It made crafting this week that much more enjoyable having some things put away.   I also managed to sort some Christmas photos.  I'll post a few (okay a bunch) at the bottom from our little photo shoot.

I have a Christmas elf to share with you.  Not to be confused with Elf on the Shelf.  What do you think of Elf on the Shelf?  Connor thinks he is creepy.  I think it is good to encourage a child's imagination. We will have to make a decision about that for next year.  Should we do it for Ryan?

Back to crafting...   this turned out to be one of my favorite Christmas cards.  I actually think it might work as a Christmas Thank you card.  What do you think?  Do you think Christmas thank you cards should be Christmas themed...or can they be anything? Lots of questions today!!

 Look at this cutie!  I had to hunt high and low to find a sentiment for this card.  Nothing seemed right.    I think the sentiment is from an old Stampin Up set.  It really matched up well

Here are the baby photos.   I did my best to narrow it down.  It was hard.  I'm biased... but he is cute.

  At times like this... I wish I baked.  This would have been cuter with homemade cookies.  :(

 Did I miss Santa?

These are from Meeting Santa

    Sooooo hard to choose my favorite Ryan Christmas photo! But I think I would choose the one of him sleeping in his Santa hat with the milk and cookies - waiting for Santa to come! Thanks for sharing. You are not being biased - he is adorable!!! :-)

    See you later!
