Elf on the Shelf, December 6th, 2014

Milo fortunately decided to use chocolate sprinkles to make sprinkle angel. His elf comrades have occasionally used flour and I think Milo is smart enough to know that would destroy his red felt uniform…

Because, somehow, even Milo still wants to keep singing that song…

Our elf is a silly one…


Elf on the Shelf, December 2nd, 2014

This morning Milo had Jenga-ed himself into a maze of wooden Jenga blocks. It’s amazing that the cat didn’t disassemble things for him…


He’s Back! Elf on the Shelf, December 1st, 2014.

Our elf, Milo, merely sits on a shelf (as he’s technically supposed to) on December 1st. Avery and Ainsley can’t wait for another year with him :)


Collage of Elf on Shelf Ideas from 2013

These appeared separately on my blog last December, but I always get many hits during the holiday season from people looking for Elf on the Shelf ideas, so I thought I’d put last year’s into a collage like I’ve done in the past. Here goes :)

Avery’s 10th Birthday

I officially do not make a good blogger :) It’s tough to find the time! I have lots of my daily project photos to catch up on. I thought I’d share some photos from Avery’s 10th birthday party yesterday. I hadn’t put this much effort into a birthday party in a long time. I figured her 10th was a special one, so we’ve all been working hard on the planning for a couple of weeks.

Her wish was to have as many friends as possible play Minecraft simultaneously on our wifi. We discovered that only 5 kids can join a “world” at a time – or at least that’s the conclusion the kids came to. We went with the Minecraft theme – which was actually quite easy and inexpensive to pull off. Pinterest is enormously helpful for things like this ;)


365 Project for June 2014

Since I’m terrible about posting even once a month, making a collage of a month after it’s over seems to be easier to manage for me… it’s also a complete disaster behind the scenes on my blog – I just had to mark 1,684 comments as spam out of 1,684 comments total, working with 20 at a time. UGHHHHH. I need to figure out how to do a ‘captcha’ or something.


Jeff + Lexx are engaged!

These two have lots of fun together!
