Last week Chewie had another choir performance, this time for his school. The Christmas songs are so cute, and there's nothing like listening to 150 voices singing about the Hip Hop Reindeer pulling the cool old Santa Claus around. lol
There's one more Choir performance this season, i believe.
|There's my boy, front and centre in the green scarf - Row 1|
Artoo and i did some paintint this week, and he decided to paint this awesome portrait of our Scout Elf
|This is a painting of our elf Elfybulla|
B-rad's work Christmas party was on Friday and when i picked the kids up from school Artoo had a bit of a fever - and so there was some frantic changing of plans... such is our life. So, B-rad and i stayed for dinner and then left early. but i did snap this cute pic
He seems to be doing okay right now, but we're keeping our eye on him.
as for our elf this is what he's been up to this week:
|Mr. Potato Head reading stories to Elfybulla and his buddies|
|Elfybulla knocked down all the movies on the shelf and then displayed these two...|
it's like he's trying to tell us something
|the boys had a pretty bad day of yelling and misbehaving so Elfybulla took a day off and stayed home so the kids could think about their behaviour|
|He returned! He climbed up into the Christmas Tree and knocked some of the decorations down|
|He spent the day relaxing in Artoo's stocking|
|he went camping with some buddies in a tent made from a story book|
|He brought the boys some kid sized mugs and was going to make them some hot chocolate,|
but had some troubles with the marshmallows (So far this day has gotten the biggest laugh)
It's really been fun listening to the boys look through the house for Elfybulla and then laugh when they find him. It's a bit of work to do every night, but so far it's been worth it.
I'm really trying to soak in all the Christmas Magic i can, because i know that before i know it, and before i'm ready, the magic spell will be over... but for now - Elves and Santa and reindeer and holiday magic!!

What's that you say? Weekly challenge number one was on December 20??? YES. We are now officially six years old. I have been coming back virtually rain or shine every week for over HALF A DECADE to bring you the weekly challenge. What a ride it's been.
So this week's challenge, the last challenge of 2016 (I'll be back January 9th) is to revisit one of the previous year's challenges and do it again!
And here is my tile:
Happy Holidays everyone and a Happy New Year. May you all have cups full of cheer, and ink in your microns!!
If you love the challenge as much as i do, please consider leaving a tip (tip jar in the side bar). I write this blog for free and have no plans to make it a paid for service in the future.Buy me a cup of coffee, or a new Micron pen!!
