Dash has had some late nights.  He somehow got a tree and put it up, that's exhausting for us normal sized people, he's like 8" tall.  Guess it finally caught up with him

Hopefully, Lynden will remember what he learned yesterday about not waking people when they're sleeping (it was a fight at 6:30 yesterday).

Yesterday's advent activity was to go see Santa.  Danny took them down to the mall and they didn't get pictures but talked to Santa - Lynden seems to be warming up to him; Alyssa's not going near him.

Today's activity: spend the day with family. 

We're heading up to Grouse for the day with some cousins.  There's reindeer, Santa, cookie decorating, and a bunch of other things going on.

  1. Love the sleeping elf idea. Today our elf is taking a bath in a bowl full of marshmallows. My son thought this was the greatest thing ever.
