elf shenanigans and more...

Hello lovelies! Let's get down to brass tacks here shall we. This month has been super busy (isn't everyones December? Rhetorical question...) 
I've been mailing out Christmas cards, attending concerts, baking (yes me actually baking!) shopping, decorating, getting together with girlfriends...all the usual poosual stuff.  But it's that busyness in combo with my addiction love of my new iPhone that's made me dump my home computer completely- the computer I blog from. 
I guess thats my excuse for spotty blogging but allow me to share what we at Casa Del "D" have been up to...

Note, all pics in this post have been taken by my beloved iPhone. I always wondered why people would post janky phone pics to their blogs. Now I understand, it's so fast, easy and yes lazy. I'll go back to my Nikon DSLR, someday...

{Last weekend I drove Kid #1 to Medicine Hat to visit my bestie Dana from high school and her 2 adorable kidlets}

{Kid #1 and his brother from another mother, Carter- building the best gingerbread house around, so they say}

Unless you've been living under a rock, any parent around could tell you that this years hottest toy, 'The Elf on the Shelf' is an absolute God-send and Mama finally got her hands on one. As explained in the children's book its sold with, the elf has magical powers and is a representative of Santa. Each night he flies back to the North Pole to report back to Santa all he's observed while spending the day in your home. Were the kids naughty or nice, either way he'll let the big guy in red know...

{ok, so that's not his tag-line but it is according to me!}
He's a mischievous little elf and the kids wake up every morning to find him in a new spot in the house getting up to all sorts of shenanigans. His magic seems to be working, I love this elf!
Check out what he's been up to...

{Relaxing with a beverage...flying to the North Pole can make an elf thirsty}

My kids are in Christmas countdown mode to the baby Jesus' arrival and I'll admit I'm really looking forward to spending some downtime with family.
My shopping is finito and I'm feeling pretty good, not fried yet anyway...hope you're all feeling the same!

OMG! I'm laughing so fricking hard at this fricking elf! I had no idea these things existed and I can't decide if they're cute or creepy as all hell! They remind me of those puppets from Mister Rogers neighborhood which used to scare me as a child.
LOL you are too funny woman.

ELF on a shelf is a new one to me, but wish I would have thought of it! I heart my IPhone too, but I need to take a course on all it can do b/c I don't use half of the things on it.

As opposed to men, girls rely a pursuer, become he or she successful or defeated, as a get. And women only attempt to remain active in adult men that they regarded as Cheap WOW Gold in the past since holding greater intercourse list, for most component because they're wanting to assure themselves they nonetheless rate the 8-10 whilst they have not already been more than a 5.

While i consider the various females I realize and listen to concerning the "old friends" with which they've reconnected through Facebook or Yahoo, they are generally referencing the adult men these people discovered nearly all desirable during the past. I don't feel it is a aware point or maybe a tricky 1, these are only the actual Buy WOW Gold guys that they can still feel fondly with regards to every so often. Their own erstwhile Experiment with orbiters have both remained in certain way of unfastened connection with them in the past or perhaps do not fee looking up. Throughout such as way, I would not end up watching me personally acquiring analyzed from the really most popular women My partner and i was involved with, but I carry out discover personally acquiring pal demands via a variety of 7s along with 8s, frequently even through women in to whom My spouse and i in no way indicated any kind of curiosity, a lot less out dated.
