Elf on the Shelf and Other Musings...

I've been on hiatus...which really means things have been mayhem.

 Between working full time and attempting to spend quality time with my two daughters, it's been hard finding the time to blog. 

With a three and four year old in the house, things have been absolutely magical for the past few months.  Halloween...what can I say???

We fully enjoyed wearing makeup and feeling very princessy, albeit pissed about being forced to wear sweaters under our ball gowns.  Just when I thought we looked perfect, my eldest reminded me that all princesses need beautiful lashes.  A bit "Toddlers and Tiaras", sure, but after all, it was Halloween.

Now with Thanksgiving being tomorrow, it's a bit hard to enjoy the moment and not fast forward right to Christmas.  At school, they made the most adorable Native American and Pilgrim outfits, which are now barely held together with scotch tape.   As my youngest explained, "We have to be a Flative-Americoff", for Thanksgiving,  "We came on the Mayflower".  At three, history is not a strong point.

On the way home from school, my eldest informed me that we needed to get an Elf on the Shelf, like her teacher has.  She told me all about how these magical creatures watch how kids behave and report back to Santa.  She suggested that we write to Santa and ask to get one for the holidays, before adding that her sister really deserved to be on the naughty list.

It is fascinating to watch them.  They are amazed by everything...enchanted by the things we grown ups take for granted.  It makes me long for the "good 'ole days" when it was the simple things in life that gave us such enjoyment.   

We are just basking in the glow.
