Elf-y's Newest adventures for the week

 photo IMG_6286.jpg Well here is what Elf-y has been up to this week:  photo IMG_6296.jpg Now He was not really, bad, you know? He just wanted to paper my hubby's little bathroom where he takes his morning shower. However  photo IMG_6298.jpg since this was a first time he got entangled in his own web---but at least at a nice resting place.  photo IMG_6299.jpg He is quite cheerful in spite of everything.  photo IMG_6301.jpg He did have some flight of fancy. After this episode he hid for a while in Nannykim's special cozy spot:  photo IMG_6304.jpg and Nannykim almost missed him!  photo IMG_6305.jpg He did take a short break with his fellow elves under the tree and they had some good chats:  photo IMG_6306.jpg  photo IMG_6307.jpg but then he needed to be back in action. He decided to dress up a bit and do some mirror decoration:  photo IMG_6322.jpg But as we all know there are some necessities of life:  photo IMG_6325.jpg ahhh, yes  photo IMG_6327.jpg and last but not least he had to help with a Christmas puzzle---Nannykim does need some help with this one!!  photo IMG_6356.jpg so all in all it was a busy week with bits of adventure for Elf-y  photo IMG_6357.jpg It is the small things in life that bring smiles; and Elf-y has made my hubby and I smile each morning!

Elfy was freed!!! AT LAST

 photo IMG_6257.jpg Elf-y had been locked up hidden in the oatmeal box for DAYS!!! My hubby had not eaten oatmeal in the warm weather and then he had been traveling. FINALLY on Saturday after watching an old Columbo movie MY HUBBY could no longer take the fact that ELF-Y was MISSING; He searched High and Low in every room (driving me a bit nuts). Then he realized Elf-y must be IN something. After a bit, he found him (see my post below) Now Elf-y is celebrating being back out and about!  photo IMG_6265.jpg Yes, we do have a winter puzzle we are working on in the background.

Thanksgiving ideas for kids

Thanksgiving photo IMG_6119.jpg I like the idea of letting the kiddies color a picture and place it under a glass plate. This is good any ole time of the year, but would be especially fun for holidays. Thanksgving photo IMG_6118.jpg You can find Trivia questions and place it under plates too---this one is for kids, but they have adult ones as well. This can be found here Thanksgiving photo IMG_6117.jpg I may use the above one (this last one) this year. I found it here
