It's Friday, which means it's time to link up with Liz, check in with Poe and Vincent and see how the Weiss Children have been behaving this week. As you recall, last week didn't go so well. The children got into trouble and the elves were called back to The North Pole by Santa.
While I was in Salt Lake City on Saturday, I received word from Santa that the elves would be returning and he sent evidence that Poe had been revived. It appears he had to call in the big guns.....Mary, Joseph and Edward.
On Sunday, while Mallory struggled with her religious choices....we did more decorating. The kids really wanted trees for their rooms so off to Joann's I went to find trees and decorations.
I think this was probably their favorite thing they've done so far!
Monday, we went to a Christmas Celebration at the shopping center where Bobbi works. We enjoyed hot cider, snacks and a carriage ride in the freezing cold.
Tuesday, the elves returned and brought Christmas dishes for the kids. They were so excited for them to come back and haven't let them out of their sight...which means they can't do or bring anything else. Mommy needs to learn some sneak techniques for getting them out of bed after the kids have drifted off to sleep. Mallory also came down with a bug...and was sick for two days.
Wednesday...Elves were in quarantine.....because they didn't get their flu shots. So I made some Apple Bread.
Thursday, everyone was feeling better and children had been behaving so....we did a craft! We started out trying to make a Marshmallow Wreath but I wanted to use glue instead of toothpicks because Alex and sharp pointy objects don't really get along. The marshmallows slid right off.....so we made some ornaments instead.
Alex...painstakingly applying glitter to his ornament.
Have a great week! Only 13 days until Christmas!!
