Christmas tree adult vs children

It's safe to say my nephews have never been let loose to decorate a Christmas tree before :'D grandma has a big one downstairs that she decorated and a little one upstairs that the boys decorated :) my sister wasn't impressed. The boys said they added extra tinsel so Santa knew which house to visit :) I think they did a great job

Secret elf business

The kids have been really good this year. So our elf peppermint has a little present for them. He got personalised icy pole holders and a pack of zooper doopers to share between them. Only problem was that when it got wrapped it was wrapped in the same paper as the other presents. So decided that wasn't appropriate and re wrapped in love candy cane paper and printed a note that was found one Google and stuck it on the front. Lucky they were re wrapped as two were labeled with the same name. There would've been trouble on Christmas day if it wasn't picked up earlier

Christmas cookie decorating

Peppermint helped remind us to decorate some cookies for Santa. We had some gingerbread people and Christmas trees as well as some samurai santa cookies and some that looked like melted snowmen :'D lots of lollies were consumed during the decorating of the cookies hehe and little miss just wanted to eat hers
Now we just have the difficult decision to decide which cookies to leave out for Santa tonight

Early Christmas present

Little miss doesn't know what Christmas is.. she's just figured out how to open presents and ripping the paper is so much fun. We decided to open a few presents early and one of them was a bike :D little miss wasn't too impressed with it but she had just woken up from a nap. Maybe today we might go for a ride :)

More christmas cards

We ran out of cards that little miss had coloured in (it's an all of a sudden interest in colouring) so we made some more. I can't wait to give them to our family :)

Elf day 24

This morning Peppermint was sitting near the Christmas tree with a box and some colouring in placemats. Today the boys found the box very quickly hehe :'D
When we opened the box we found a letter from Santa, a Christmas movie , a Christmas penguin toy, a Christmas Story, reindeer food, 3 nice list certificates, some individual bags of popcorn and some chocolate.
There was a clean potato delivered yesterday because mr attitude arrived.  Luckily he didn't stay long, and no more potatoes have arrived since.
If you're really naughty Santa delivers a dirty potato in your stocking that replaces a present. Luckily all the kids have been really good they all got a nice list certificate :) one of them thought they were going to get a naughty list certificate because of his potato.  I think he was pretty pleased to have a nice list certificate :)

The colouring in placemats were great :) all the adults and children sat around the table and coloured for about half an hour :)
It was nice to relax and have a colour and all the kids have a placement for christmas day :)

Peppermint goes back to the north pole tonight. Santa will pick him up when he comes past tonight :)

Elf day 23

Having bigger kids around makes the elf so much more fun :D we looked all around and couldn't see peppermint anywhere ( :'D ) and I said maybe he didn't come back from the north pole last night hehe lucky aunty found him sitting on the table with all the gingerbread cookies to decorate :)

Peppermint brought these fantastic glasses this morning :) if you put them on and look at the lights on the Christmas tree and you will see snowmen, santas or elves :) coolest glasses ever

Elf day 21

I think peppermint wants to come with us :'D and doesn't want to get left behind

Elf day 20

This morning Peppermint had caught a mouse :'D and one had got away. Little miss pulled peppermint away quickly but couldn't figure out to unclip her favourite mouse :'D

Elf day 19

Peppermint was holding some photos of little miss's cousins and aunty this morning :) she loved looking at them, they are her favourite cousins :)

Elf day 18

This morning Peppermint was cutting little miss's puzzle in half :)

She very quickly ripped him away:) hehe

Picked the beetroot

I picked the beetroot :) the weather has really warmed up so decided that because it was starting to go to seed that it was time to pick them. I planned to pick them for christmas, they are candy can striped beetroot  :D
Note to self next time they need to be thinned as I didn't thin them out at all

Christmas containers

I've seen these containers in the shop and really wanted to add them to my collection. I couldn't really justify buying them until they went on sale for half price :D hopefully next year we can have christmas at our house so I can use them

We name all of our cars, because... well, we're weird :) when my hubby got a new car we decided on the name cookie monster. So of course he has a cookie monster strapped to the front. He asked for a Santa hat on him, but I haven't pulled all my Christmas stuff out because we are painting so I said no promises.
I was at the shops the next day and saw this cute little pet Santa hat that looked looked like the perfect size and sure enough :)  it was

Angel garden

I have an angel garden. I planted flowers following a miscarriage, and I have to say I didn't think it would make a difference but over 2 years later and still seeing those flowers makes me remember my angel.
I originally planted snapdragons, but they don't last for long and were looking a bit sad so I decided to replace them. But this time I decided to have a variety of different flowers and I love the end result. Well I say end result but there is still space to add more so more will be added :)
