Welcome to week three of the Countdown to Christmas and Elfcapades 2010! I can't believe that there are only 9 days until Christmas can you? We still haven't gotten any snow in Denver and the other day when I was wrapped presents...I had all of the doors and windows open.
I forgot to share this picture last week....after the Blue Man Group we drove past the Denver City and County Building to see their lights. It's kind of amazing!

Friday night, after much negotiation...we left the kids with Nana and went Christmas Shopping. But first we needed a little shopping fuel.
|i like beer|
The problem with having drinks before Christmas Shopping is that you buy a whole bunch of stuff and then you end up at Starbucks at 9pm and Malbec and Caramel Brullee Latte ( my new favorite drink!) don't really go together. And you say things out loud that you really shouldn't say.
|OMG LOOK AT HIS HAIR!|
This week the elves were very busy and the candy thievery was way down. A lesson was learned when day 13 came around and there was only one piece of candy in the box and someone didn't get one.
The elves decided to give themselves the morning off and brought a craft project for the kids to do. It was a big hit and then they wrapped them in my dish towels and put them under the tree for Daddy. My kids are such givers!
|Will someone get me a hair cut please|
One night the elves got all tangled in the Christmas lights and Mallory got really mad at them. I think if I'd let her...she'd have put them on the naughty spot!
Last night, they built a tent and left a note that said it's Jammie Day!! There will hot chocolate, cookies and Christmas movies all day long! WOOT!
In case you missed my post on Tuesday about my neighbors' interesting Christmas Decor....we've now been invited to a Christmas Party at the clubhouse.
Have a great week!
