Thanksgiving is over, and that means it’s finally time to get ready for Christmas! I’m very excited this year, we have a 2 year old and a 5 year old (and one on the way) so I get to have lots of fun with this one! We have an Elf (which I’m sure you’re familiar with), and we have a lot of fun with him. His name is Twinkle, and he made his debut this year on Thanksgiving night. He got us started on our Xmas countdown this year, and today he’s keeping a vigil eye over Thing 1 and Thing 2, and it’s so much fun to watch JoJo (the 5 year old) get so excited…and behave so well!
Over the last week, JoJo’s reminded me of Twinkle’s most memorable antics from last year…and I was delighted to see that she remembered so well! “Remember when he…he…he…was drinking the syrup out of the bottle????” She’s telling me in her shrill little over excited voice.“Remember when he…he…he…spilled the cereal all over???” I can’t wait to see what Twinkle decides to pull this year…
This year is just going to be so much fun! In just a few weeks we get to find out the sex of our third, and I’m really, really, really excited about that! I’m on the edge of my seat to find out, which is funny really because I wasn’t surprised about the sex of either of my other children! (Haha!) I was convinced I was having a girl first, and a boy second and that’s what I got. This one really has me thrown so that will be a special little way for us to celebrate this season!
So, do you have an elf in your house? Are you making Christmas cookies this year? What’s your favorite recipe? What kinds of things will you be up to this season to bring a little magic into your home? I can’t wait to share all of the fun we’ll be having at ours!
