Naughty or Nice

Ellie has been such a good girl this year. I am not sure after this picture if she will still be considered on the nice list... She has got a death grip on Santa's beard.

Gingerbread House

Growing up I usually got to go to my grandmas house and make a gingerbread house. It has been a little difficult since I moved away, but this year my grandma had all the pieces baked and ready for me to pick up at Thanksgiving. I finally found a few minutes in my busy life to decorate it. I think it turned out pretty cute.

Johnny Elf

When I was growing up each year on December 1st Johnny Elf appeared in my house. He was there to help Santa Clause keep a closer eye on my family. (mostly the kiddos) He would move around each night and I always looked forward to searching for him in the morning. As my family grew, a second elf began to come. So for years Johnny and Eddie Elf visited our house from Dec. 1- 25. They disappeared on Christmas Eve catching a ride on Santa's sleigh. 6 years ago I got married and moved out of the house. Maybe the elves didn't know where I lived, but they have never found me. Maybe it is because we have little Ellie in the house now, but Johnny has found his way to 3267 Casey Dr.
