My Little Elf


This is what the Christmas spirit looks like in my house this year. My sweet Cade has more jolly spirit than anyone else I know...he always has. He makes the most elaborate Christmas lists and starts counting down before Thanksgiving, and he is utterly appauled that there are children in his class that don't believe in Santa. Some years, I'm right there with him...some years, not. For some reason, this year, it's been hard for me to get in the Christmas spirit. I've had a hard time getting things done, thinking of great gifts ideas, having the motivation to decorate, etc. I think the busyness has gotten to me, and I'm doing everything with a toddler...again! Still, I would like to have a little more "ho ho ho" for my family. One thing I just couldn't get done was wrapping presents. Cade had been begging me to help me wrap, so I gave the job to him. He was thrilled. Friday, my mom came to stay with the kids while I went out to try to finish some errands. While I was gone, Cade wrapped everything! (except his siblings' gifts)

I have to admit, there's a very small part of me that wants to redo them all...with big beautiful ribbons, but there is no chance I'm touching them. He is so proud, and I am thankful to have the help. They have been wrapped with love.

I just thought his spelling on Christopher's present was so cute!

So thankful for these two this Christmas. They are definitely the motivation to make this holiday season special.
