Christmas Comes Early…

I will admit it- I am one of those people who beat the mall at decorating for Christmas. I LOVE the holidays and usually pull out my Christmas decorations November 1st.

This year we are doing a completely DIY Christmas {thanks to a little help from pinterest & my extremely creative 6 year old}! We will be making our own homemade Christmas tree this week, and have already started our decorating of the house. My neighbor was standing outside complaining last night to someone on the phone that I had already decorated the outside of our house– I totally wanted to storm out of the house and call her a Grinch (decided against it as I had been eavesdropping while doing the dishes).

I also started our annual tradition on Elf on The Shelf. I know, most of you are thinking ‘she’s nuts! TWO whole months of imagecoming up with ideas for Elf?!?!’ Calm down- I haven’t lost my mind completely– since my son goes to his dads for his Christmas break I lose almost two whole weeks in December so really it’s just a month and a half and come on, with all the awesome ideas I have found on Pinterest and some other great blogs (they are listed below in case you wanted to check them out!) it was hard to decided what Zip (our elf) would be getting into for the 6 weeks he’s here! (Ok, ok confession #2 I occasionally bring Zip out of hiding throughout the year when my son is having a particularly “disobedient” week… so guess more than just 6 weeks a year!)

Letter from Elf

Guess two confessions in a single post is enough for now! 🙂 Enjoy your week!
