The Many Adventures of Jingle

Meet Jingle. He's our elf on the shelf. Santa told us that Jingle is fairly young for an elf, and is still learning to use his magic. This means he got himself into some mischief throughout the month. He has one more night, and then he'll travel back to the North Pole with Santa until next December. Sean will definitely miss him.

Jingle arrives on December 1
Making sugar angels on the countertop
Bet you can't find me!
Milk should be green!
Jingle even joined us on vacation in Disney World... the first night he took a marshmallow bath.
The second night he attempted to order room service
Keeping in touch with Santa
Spa Day
Swinging from the lamp!
Jingle is an expert artist
He snuck out to see the Osbourne Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios
Pirate Mickey & Friends got tired of Jingle's shenanigans
Home from Disney safe and sound
Feeling adventurous - bungee jumping from the second floor
Clearly he gets an adrenaline rush from extreme sports - zip lining into the tree
Chilling out watching his favorite Xmas movies on Netflix
Hanging out sipping some syrup
Mischievous ... switching out the stockings with underwear
Barricading Sean in his room
Remembering the reason for the season! O come let us adore him.

Day 3 - Memories :: December Daily 2012

Day 3 contains no photo - gasp! It's just that kind of year :-) And I'm waiting for my husband to write up his journaling. Fingers crossed it happens before I send it to print.

Day 2 - Tree :: December Daily 2013

Traditionally, our Christmas tree goes up Thanksgiving weekend. And this year was no different. Daddy dragged it in from the garage, checked the lights, and up it went. The next day you and I decorated it with ornaments. We can’t find the ribbon garland, and honestly it probably won’t go up this year with all we have going on this month.

Neither Daddy or I grew up with live trees, so we’re content  -- and honestly happy -- with the artificial tree. Our tree right now is huge, standing ten feet tall. It definitely makes a statement! And the multi-colored twinkle lights are magic.  We decorate the tree with ornaments from when Daddy & I were kids, and ones you have made, and others we have bought on vacation.

Day 1 Cheer :: December Daily 2013

Yep, it's that time of year again! I know it's been forever since I've blogged, but I made a deliberate attempt to simplify and knock things off my "to do" list. I also ramped up my networking efforts for our adoption. Please continue to spread the news that we are hoping to adopt, and keep us in your prayers.

Now I'm back with the December Daily album. This year I'm going SUPER simple. I'm using Ali Edwards' 31 Things as my inspiration, and have selected thirty-one words that I will write about -- either documenting something from that particular day, something that is on my mind, or telling a story or memories from the past such as when Jeff and I were kids at Christmastime.

As you'll read on this page, we are soon leaving for a Disney World vacation so I will be journaling and snapping photos while we're gone but probably not designing pages. That will have to wait until I'm home. Meanwhile I'm sure I'll be posting blogging about our trip and posting photos. Enjoy!
