I also decided I was done with the white paper in my office and let the boys go to town on it. (You MUST download Camera+ ! Best iphone photo editor EVER.)
The only thing marring my weekend was how many people sent me this article from People I Want to Punch in the Face. With a disclaimer, OF COURSE, that they don't mean me, they mean other people who do the Elf thing. Seriously, I got this from at least 20 people last week.
From the very start of this holiday season, I have very publicly declared our focus was on experiences. I doubt my children will grow up remembering the things they received but they will remember the time we spent with them. They will remember what it was like to wake up with a little bit of magic in their house.
This season, I have spent about 1% of my mental energy on presents and gifts and what I can BUY and instead thought about how I can make MEMORIES.
And for that, I am proud.
Sunday Elfie got into the chocolate covered peanuts that were delivered this weekend.
This morning Nate and Alex couldn't find Elfie for a good 15 minutes. Elfie picked a really great hiding spot.
