Daddy is introducing us to "The Elf on the Shelf", a gift from Uncle Jason and Aunt Sarah. Luke sat for the entire story (above), Liam lost interest and only wanted to hold the Elf himself.

Checking out the tree
With the snow, our Christmas lights, and the tree...it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. The boys have been very facinated by the Christmas tree this year. They still don't quite understand the concept of being "gentle" with the fragile ornaments so the majority of our ornaments are hanging at the top of the tree and the tree is located in the office behind closed doors!
The boys and I had a few long days while John was out of town on business, but we are happy to have him home and glad that he won't be planning to travel again until after the arrival of Baby #3. We got our first big snowfall for the season yesterday and today. The temperatures have really dropped, the wind has picked up, and we have about 6 inches of "no" (as Luke calls it). Unfortunately, we all know that we are likely looking at 6 inches that won't melt until spring, but I am trying not to think about that too much.
