Merry Xmas 2012

We're creatures of habit and we stuck to our routine again this year. We celebrated with Jordan's family on Christmas Eve at the "Big Fat Mexican Christmas Party" (that's really what it was called). When we got home from dinner that night, I opened the fridge and discovered that my parents had done a sneak visit and brought the breakfast casserole and all the food over. My mom was freaking out that there would be too much snow and they wouldn't be able to make it over for breakfast in the morning. So she delivered the breakfast to us...just in case. That's so my mom. :) Anyway, the snow didn't come until later so my parents we're able to join us that morning and watch E open his gifts. We went to their house for dinner and then celebrated my birthday the next day. Big number 33!

 J's stocking was on the ground because Santa left him some booze. 

Emmett loved the advent calendar this year. Every morning we opened one of the boxes and talked about the special treat that Santa left for him. He was a little perplexed when the boxes disappeared and he didn't get his treat after Christmas. The holidays are so much more fun with kids around! I'm not going to lie, I'm looking forward to doing the "Elf on the Shelf" thing next year. Jordan and I tried to hate on it and make fun of all the crazy crap people do with their little elf, but it just looks fun. I bet E is going to love it. I'm ready for 2013. I think it's going to be a great year!

  2. Have you seen all the crazy Elf on a Shelf things on Pinterest?

    1. Yes! Some of them are really funny and cute, but some of them are so crazy! I can't believe some of the stuff people are willing to do.
