It was a busy weekend. We had a lot of fun and I'm sure my neice and nephew are absolutely pooped out! We also got a chance to get together with my brother-in-law's family which means a lot of other boys for the kids to play with. Miss I totally hit it of with Little Big Man M. They played the whole time we were over at the Fawn's house.... no arguing, no "I wanna do this not that" just a lot of busy playtime. Miss S even got in on it too for a bit. There was also a dog in the house for Miss S to warm up to. That took quite a while but finally she took to Jake.

Is everyone ready for Christmas yet? It’s less than 2 weeks away and I think we are all caught up… now to get everything wrapped.
It never fails. I lock myself in the bedroom when the kids are very busy with something else and immediately they come running looking for me. Ok so you are thinking “Oh well, you at least have the door locked.” Yes. That is correct and is fine… until they start peeking under the door through the crack! NO PEEKING! Oh I can’t wait until Christmas!
I’m hoping the kids like what Santa brings for them this year! Speaking of the big jolly fella… we got our email video from Santa! The girls loved it! Want to know how to get your email video from Santa? Well, I put in a quick (2 minute) order with some elves here and they sent it right away! The girls were impressed that Santa had pictures of what they did this year (and even had a birthday photo of Sofia which happened 1 week before our email arrived!) Hurry up and get yours sent!

We all get super busy this time of year and who couldn't use a distracting craft for the kidlets to do while you sneek off to hide those presents you wrapped? Well, here are some great links for easy crafts for the kiddies.
The Party Planning Center blog has an adorable little Christmas tree craft for the kids. It's so cute and colourful! It's very similar to the trees we used on the table at Sofia's birthday.
Creativemamma.com has this fun little project. Let the kids colour some decorations and then do a scavenger hunt. But make sure they don't accidentally find those gifts you are trying so hard to hide!
Have your kids sent their letters to Santa yet? Mine already have and we got our letters from Santa the other day! Canada Post is so great! They allow you to actually mail a letter to Santa and they have busy little elves who make sure Santa gets his letters and replies to all the special little children who write to him.
Mail your letters to:
Why not make your letters to Santa that much more special with Blush Printables' letter to Santa printable.
The Santa's Corner website also has a lot of other fun things for the kids to do as well.
And why not spread some joy to the neighbourhood? ELF your neighbours and get the jolly rolling through the streets. Use these printables by Anders Ruff when leaving your ELF gifts.
Well, there you have it. crafts for the kidlets, and a little jolly for the neighbours.... I love this time of year!!!
