The day draws near

I was telling Jamie tonight how hard it is to believe that Christmas is only a couple of days away now. Every year there is such a build up to the big day and so much time goes into preparations - gift buying, wrapping, decorating, menu planning, grocery shopping, cooking, etc...then it seems like the actual day sneaks up on us.

It occurred to me tonight that we only have 2 more nights with Holly & Herman until they return to the North Pole for the next 11 months or so. I think we really need to make the most of it, so I am trying to get a little bit more elaborate with these last 2 days.

Tomorrow morning Elise will find Holly & Herman on the kitchen table with her crayons and Christmas coloring book...and they've gotten a bit artistic! Of course, who would expect anything less from a pair of mischevious Christmas Elves??

We will have to save their art work for Elise's scrapbook...which unfortunately is a full year and a half behind. How the heck did that happen?? I think I feel a New Year's resolution coming...
