  • I was able to convince my hubby to join us for a little sledding fun. This Christmas was a white one for us and the kids were thrilled. When all was said and done, we went home wet, hot, tired, but with a smile. Here are a few shots from the day after Christmas.

  • "Mommy if you are the head elf, do you have pointy ears?" - Jasmine Earley

    I have been a volunteer EMS provider for almost 12 years. We have an annual Christmas party/brunch for the children, grandchildren, young siblings of the members. For the last 9 years I have either been a part of or organized this event. I am known to the children of the crew members as "The Head Elf". I enjoy all that this job entails except the clean up after it is all over. The look of joy on the face of every child kind of makes up for the mess I'm left to deal with. I know that most of those kid wait all year long the the chance to sit on Santa's lap and get a present. I have watched most of those kids grow up before my very eyes. We have the most awesome Santa ever. He actually starts growing his beard in July. He has the perfect figure for the job. The best part is his eyes really do twinkle because he loves making the kids happy. Mrs. Claus is just as perfect. She comes in and reads to the kids before Santa's arrival. While she is reading, the reindeer are prancing on the roof over the kids' heads. There are always a few gasps as the kids try really hard to keep from jumping up and down. When Mrs. Claus gets to the end of her story, the kids hear the man of the hour's Ho Ho Ho. There is nothing better than seeing the faces when he walks in that room. He commands their attention by his very presence and they give it willingly. I do believe there are a few parents in that room who still want to believe in Santa too. Here are a few of the pictures from yesterday...
    I couldn't have asked for 2 better helpers by my side. These are 2 of my 3 best friends. They are super awesome and I am blessed because they are in my life. Catie is known to break out in song at any moment. While she prefers Abba, she loves belting out Christmas carols in the toy store. This also means I must join in and dance too. Sarah tries to get control of us but even she knows that is a lost cause. I really, really love Christmas!
