24 Days of Elf on the Shelf Antics

We love having our very own Elf on the Shelf and I’ve talked about it before.  It is a really special way to bring Christmas magic into the boys’ day for the whole month of December.  Since my latest Pinterest obsession has taken over my days (I.Must.Keep.Pinning), I’ve been seeing a lot of fun and creative Elf on the Shelf ideas.  Some people’s elves are seriously creative! It made me think about how fun it would be to chronicle our Elf’s antics.  Every day from December 1st to December 24th, I will post a picture of what Jack Andrew Smitty is up to.  I will come back to this post and link up all the pictures so you can have one resource for fun elfy antics.  If you have an elf, I would LOVE to see your pictures, too!  I’ll put a linky on this post and please feel free to share your Elf on the Shelf posts as well. I love our Elf! 1. Welcome Back Jack 2. Believe 3. Flying Elves 4. Eye See You 5. Elf in Space 6. Underwear Thief   7. Kiss Kiss 8. Baby, It’s Cold Outside 9. We’ve Been TP’d Share your posts!

Elf on the Shelf Antics!

Two years ago we welcomed our very own Scout Elf, Jack Andrew Smitty, into the family.  Our Elf on the Shelf has been a lot of fun and the boys love to see him show up.  We are currently waiting for our Jack to arrive (should be any day!) and we anticipate what kind of antics he may pull.  While visiting Pinterest (my new obsession) I’ve been able to see some of the crazy stuff other people’s elves have pulled and I thought it would be fun to share that with you….you know…just in case you wondered. *wink* Source: via Rhea on Pinterest   Apparently, “Elfie Rojo” painted these kids’ noses RED! How funny is that. What a trouble maker.     Source: via Rhea on Pinterest     Wwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What Does Your Pantry Look Like?

I can’t even believe I’m posting a picture of my messy pantry!  It started out somewhat organized.  I had can goods on one shelf, cereal somewhere else, baking supplies on top.  It was orderly and I could find things easily.  Food storage was a breeze and dinner time a snap when everything was in its place. Now days?  Not so much. I dig and dig and move things up and down and back around all trying to find something that likely ends up right in front of my face.  Or, I dig and dig looking for one specific thing only to find freeze dried food from 2008.  I was happy to find some pasta tonight for dinner only to see it expired last Christmas. *sigh* What’s a girl to do? As much as I want to be and as hard as I try, I’m just not all that organized.  I have dreams of organized pantries all fancy and neat.  With baskets and containers and labels, oh my!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Gabriel brought this home from school on Friday and when I read it I got misty eyed.  I was so proud of him!  I am very proud of all my boys and am thankful that they are in my life. I hope your family has a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you are surrounded by people you are thankful for {and if you are surrounded by butt’s I hope you have some good wine to be thankful for instead!}. Happy Thanksgiving from my family to...
