My elf on the shelf, Hawk-eye, is making me so happy.

I am pretty sure I do it more for me that for him. 🙂


Snow angels – that was my favorite.  Julia laughed out loud at this one.


I bet you had no idea he could write… or draw Christmas trees!


I think he was just trying to catch a ride on the angel, but I am pretty sure it looks like he is choking her.


And this lovely tree topper.

So, so, so excited!

I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Friday!



life rearranged


Now, go make someone smile!

It’s Friday!

Hugs to you,


Keirstin - Stumbled on your blog through SITS. I am a nanny for a family who has an elf. His name is “Elfie”. “The Elf on the Shelf” is so much fun! Their elf does some crazy things… baking cookies, pulling out all of the canned goods from the pantry, etc. 😀

Theresa - I love these! Where did you get that elf? It looks like something my Grandma Eschbach had.

Anne Lorys-Fiona and Twig - This post is darling!
I love how creative you get with your elf! 🙂
Thank you so much for your recent visit and sweet comment, it truly meant the world to me, my friend.

Mary Thompson - Fun and more fun

cindy - You will have to tell me where to get an elf on the shelf for next year.

Jodi - Snow angel!! SO CUTE!!
I really wish Elf on the Shelf existed when my daughter was little! 🙂

Blaire - Our Elf Eddy wants to make snow angels too but, I do not want him to get dirty. Roy says I am stifling Eddy’s creativity. Boo!

katesfriend - LOL! Love it! So creative. The snow angel is the best but I like them all.

Nikki - I think that tree topper would mesh well with my bowl of vintage shiny brites. Any thing having to do with Christmas’ long ago makes me smile.

tinuviel - Laughing out loud with you at the snow angel. So clever.
We saw “Hugo” last weekend, and the actress playing Isabelle reminded me of your J.
Also I’m catching myself singing “A Star! A Song!” from the old Revelation Christmas musical (only I don’t remember all the words). Good memories. Love and prayers to your family.
