Happy December y'all!
On the last day of November Chewie's class had a fun field trip to the Western Development Museum, the local boomtown museum, to see what Christmas as like in Saskatchewan a hundred years ago. Here he is, dressed like a little prairie farm boy.
|Ready to get to work|
He had a lot of fun, but he says the best part was being given 'a hundred pennies' to go 'shopping' in the general store. He said he bought Snow Shoes, and a saw, and some cloth and some candy and some toys, and still had 34 pennies left over. (The general store gives them a checklist with a hundred pennies on it, and let's them pretend to go shopping so they can see how the value of money was back then)
It's only the first week in December and we're already off and running. The most notable thing that's happened in our house right now is the return of our Elf on the Shelf, ElfyBulla. He's our Scout Elf that keeps an eye on the going on in our house and then reports back to Santa each night before finding a new place in the house to hide.
The boys had been talking about ElfyBulla a lot in the past week or so, wondering when he would come back. They both had seemed to settle on December 9th, for some reason, as the date he'd make his triumphant return - so they were both super surprised and pleased when he showed up bright and early on the first of December.
|When ElfyBulla arrived to find we had not put up our Christmas Tree yet, he remedied the situation by making one of his own, and leaving a big mess, as always.|
|The boys were super exciteted to see him|
ElfyBulla was so excited to see the tree that he had to make some gingerbread cookies before finding a nice place in the tree to munch on his snack.
|Nothing like a tasty gingerbread man|
again, he left a big mess - and the rest of his cookies undecorated. The boys were very happy to decorate the leftover cookies (and eat them as well)

|he's got KILLER ABS!!|
|There's only 10 people in the world who could pull off a smoothie moustache like that, and he's nine of them.|
