Meet Sprinkle

We have jumped on the Elf on a Shelf bandwagon this year - and I am loving it so far!  

Wyatt named our Elf Sprinkle.  After going to Pottery Barn Kids storytime and reading the book at home, Wyatt understands that Sprinkle was sent to our house to help watch over Wyatt & Hazel.  He reports back to Santa, at the North Pole, every night to tell him if they were naughty or nice and what is on their wishlists.  Each day, when he returns, he finds a new spot to be on the look-out.   

Wyatt loves looking for him every morning and asking me what toys Sprinkle might have made for him the night before.  I am loving that we have entered the stage of successful bribery and threats ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, this year may have brought some troubling times but we are feeling very blessed to have SOO much to be thankful for - especially our great friends and family!  

Wyatt loved telling us what he was thankful for every morning and it pretty consistently stayed the same - his bed!  This week I am thankful for the Elf on a Shelf and his magical powers!

I hope everyone else is feeling as blessed as we do this Thanksgiving season!

November already and off to a busy start!!!

Aunt Nickie came to visit and we celebrated our Thanksgiving in Sioux City!

My mom & sisters even surprised me with a little baby shower - SO sweet!

....and we celebrated sister's 32nd Birthday! 

Luckily the flu didn't hit until we got back home!  We had so much fun being in Sioux City, together as a family - we missed you Morgan!
