More Christmas preparations

Christmas is such a busy time of year, it takes two posts before we even get to the actual holiday! 
Grace and I don't do Elf on a Shelf but we do get a visit each year from Elfie.  Elfie helps Santa at the North Pole but comes to visit us for a few weeks before Christmas.  He gets up to all sorts of silly adventures, watches Grace and finds all the great things Grace does.  Then each night while we sleep, Elfie leaves us a note telling us what he noticed.  Unlike Elf on the Shelf, he doesn't report to Santa and we can cuddle him all we want!  Here's some of the silly things Elfie got up to over the weeks before Christmas.

Checking out Grace's Advent calendar, yummy

Funny idea from my friend Catherine.....Grace woke up one morning to find all her socks and underwear on the tree!  Elfie up to his antics! 

Writing her letter to Santa.  Grace asked for a guitar, a yo-yo, and high heels!

We went to Breakfast with Santa one Saturday morning and guess who we saw??  The principal from Grace's school!  She thought that was the funniest part of the day!lol

Grandpa's Christmas concert.  Grace decided to join in!

Making cookies for Santa

Grace's gingerbread cookie that she made at school. She thought it looked delicious!

So we kept up our tradition of making a birthday cake for Jesus, however Mommy forgot to buy enough eggs.  So off we went next door on Christmas morning.  Grace loves visiting our elderly neighbours, Dan and Erna.  She was adorable, wearing her chef hat and apron, knocking on their door asking for an egg!  Of course we had to go inside for a few minutes and visit, wishing them a Merry Christmas.
