We’ve Been TP’d!

Jack seems obsessed with our tree because he “helped decorate” it again last night.  This time though he got himself tangled up in some toilet paper.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

It is 26 degrees outside in my fine SoCal town, and while I know Jack is pretty familiar with the cooler temps (you know, since he’s from the North Pole and all), we found him snuggled up inside our doggie’s stocking this morning.    He sure looks toasty! Where was your elf today?

Kiss Kiss

Jack was hanging out on our mistletoe today.  I think he might be a little voyeur… (sorry for the grainy phone picture.  This “real” job is totally cutting into my blogging time!  eek!)

Underwear Thief

Apparently, we didn’t put enough quality decorations on our tree because Jack decided to add some of his own. *snort* Where was your elf today?

Either way….Jack was flying high today when the boys found him.  He sat perched on an old wooden mobile that I picked up at Cost Plus a gazillion years ago, but I love […]


It took the little boys a bit longer to find Jack this morning because he hid himself in the array of stuffed holiday characters on our fireplace hearth.  But there he is, bring a special message:  Believe!

Welcome Back Jack!

Jack Andrew Smitty arrived last night and I was woken up by loud “whispers” saying “mom!  Jack is in our bathroom!”  Gabriel was SO EXCITED!  Until… Jack took position on top of the medicine cabinet in the boys’ bathroom.  He even snagged some tinsel out of the recently un-closeted Christmas decoration boxes.  He looked super […]

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 […]
