The Elves are Busy...


The elves at our house have been very busy...as I'm sure they've been busy at your house too.  Papa Elf (Steve) just finished making a new bed for Guy.  We recently rearranged sleeping quarters, and Guy ended up with the short straw, so he needed a new bed!  Steve put a lot of love into making that bed for Guy.  I am so glad I married such a handy and thoughtful man.

Guy dyed some beautiful silk scarves with kool-aid for the girls' Christmas gifts.  (Thanks to my friend Jenn for showing us how!)  It was fun and easy!

Autumn made some chocolates for her siblings.  I am sewing nightgowns.  Scarlett is getting ready for her preschool Christmas pageant.  She is going to be an angel and gets to say "Fear not!  Go to the town of Bethlehem!!"  (*Correction from Scarlett...She is "the Head Angel"...the angel Gabriel...the only angel with a name!  A star is born...)


I still have an art apron, a cooking apron, and a puppet show curtain to sew.  How many days until Christmas?

  2. I like that you raise and train them to make and not necessarily buy gifts for each other. That is actually priceless and i love it--it touched my heart.

    meanwhile, you Mommy Claus has a lot of things to do so Good Luck but i am very sure you don't feel tired because you like what you do!! Good job Mommy Claus!! Way to go!!

  7. Did you read the Christmas story I posted last year about a little angel? If not, you might want to check it out. I think your kids might like to hear it, now that they have angel experience!

  8. Sounds a lot like my house right now. My sewing machine is getting a workout and I have yet to wrap a single thing. Busy, busy...but our gifts will be filled with lots of love. :)
