Someone is having a midnight snack...

Jacin Day 2

Last night, Elf on the Shelf was an ABC movie. It really was cute and so great for the boys to understand what it really meant.

Jacin started out in the nativity watching baby Jesus.

However, he quickly had to be moved because the boys touched him (a big no no- the elf will lose his powers to tell Santa if you were naughty or nice).

I decided to take him away for a bit. The boys knew from the movie he had to go to the elf hospital. So when they came back from the park this morning he had moved onto the blinds...

The Journey of Jacin....

We started Elf on the Shelf last year. I have to admit I wasn't very good about moving him. And I think he stayed hanging out of Reese's stocking most of the month.

However, with the help of Pinterest, I have had more fun and he's only moved 3 times!!!

Our elf, Jacin, pronounced Jaw-sin has made some fun trips so far.... And I wanted to document his journey...

Day 1 Jacin appeared on the milk. My nephew JoeJoe woke up at 6am and my sister tried to hold him off from coming downstairs to eat to wait on Reese but after 2 hours she just couldn't. So, JoeJoe found Jacin. He was so excited!!!

I then colored the milk green so they could see his magic powers. This backfired as neither boy wanted green milk.

This is going to be a fun tradition....

Tiny Prints Holiday Cards

Why yes, I am that crazy lady who has had my house decorated for Christmas since the second week of November! I won't go into my reasons for decorating so early, but I am fully justified in them, and my husband humors me and that just works for us! And let me tell you, with the all day thunderstorms rolling through here, it's nice to have the mantle lit up, and all 9 of my trees glowing. Yes, 9 trees. So what?!

So of course, if I have my house decorated, don't you think I have already gotten on the Christmas card? I've attempted to take picture 4 different times now, but each time, I've gotten NOTHING I can work with. NOTHING. Maybe because I have a 4 month old. The MOST awkward age to take a picture. She can't sit up, if she lays, she rolls, she's drooling like crazy and prefers her hands in her mouth or around her face rather than anywhere else. Throw in a 4 1/2 year old and you see what I've got to work with.

I've decided to go with Tiny Prints this year. I have a friend who uses them for EVERYTHING and the word I would use to describe them is classic and quality. Y'all, their stuff is good. Every time I open a card from her, I always have envy over just how cute or great her cards are.

So this year, here's what I'm leaning towards....

I really love the cleanness of this card. And I like the bright colors.
This one is cute. I totally dig the solid red background and the adorable way Holidays is written.
Oh, the polka dots.....
This one can be color customized...although red wins for me...
And I just love all the bright words...
Y'all, Tiny Prints has it all. Birth Announcements, Address Labels, Christmas Cards....really, a one stop place for your correspondence needs. If you're a blogger and are interested in 50 free Tiny Prints Christmas cards, leave a comment with your email and I'll pass along the offer!

Massage Envy

I've convinced Reese that rubbing my shoulders, neck and back is fun. I'm going to milk this as long as I can...
