We've not been up to much around here lately. I've been doing some serious cleaning. I've bagged up MANY trash bags of things to give away or throw away. I love having a clean, clutter-free house. The other two members of my family - they don't hold those same values. I have to clean when SM is not here. She likes to pull things from the trash as quick as I can bag them up.
We are also getting ready for Christmas. We have an Elf, if you remember from last year. His name is Chocolate. Chocolate is not one of those elves that performs tricks and gets into trouble. I told him we didn't need his help teaching SM anything new that would get her into more trouble. But he does show up very morning. Sometimes, if he's really tired the night before, he stays in one spot for a couple days. Not only is he a tired elf, he also doesn't have much of a good memory.
We also have been taking pictures of our girl in her festive Christmas outfits. Here are a few photos I took Sunday morning before church. She was dressed in her Santa dress and she was working the camera.
