We have a new friend in our house. His name is Henry. He's a happy elf. He appeared on the morning of December 1 with a note and lego advent calendar for the boys .... every morning since he's been in a new hiding spot. He reports back to Santa on the boys behaviour. Even though the boys know that Santa is not real (gasp) they still wonder what Henry is going to say to Santa. One night he mixed up some green waffles and had strawberries and whip cream ready too ... one morning he was hiding in the freezer because he was a little homesick .... one night he chopped down a little tree and made little ornaments to decorate it .... he's going to be bringing a couple service type items later in December too ... he's a fun little guy and I wouldn't be surprised if he found his way to our house every December.

Merry Christmas!!

It's Christmas!!!! Well, almost. We had Christmas in Winnipeg last week and it snowed here today so it is feeling suspiciously like Christmas. And I think that today was the first day of advent. Something else that is Christmasy is the good old Christmas card. I love reading Christmas letters and seeing people's pictures.

Shutterfly has a great thing on now where bloggers can get free Christmas cards! YAY! Because we all know how we feel about free things. ;)

We have used shutterfly for years. We have bought calendars from them for our family for the past three years .... my parents and brother and his family have bought quite a few photo-books from them too. We have been so happy with their service and products and are looking forward to picking which style of Christmas card to pick from the many many choices!! Now if only I could get my kids to smile normally for pictures ..... I have a feeling that I'll be picking out a great design for my card and then sticking silly pictures on them. C'est le vie!

From My Kitchen Door

I spent 5 minutes drinking coffee and taking pictures from my kitchen door this morning. This is some of what I saw.

A LONG time!

It's been a long time since my last post but that's not really anything new. Here's some fun pictures from when my parents stayed with the boys last weekend. They had a blast.
