Over the course of the past week it's started to look a lot more like Christmas around these parts. We've been working on the tree and decorating the house a little at a time.
Our Elf on the Shelf, Johnny Duddle, is back keeping an eye on Joseph's behavior so as to report back to Santa.
I'm always baking for one party or another this time of year. Nothing beats a classic sugar cookie, but I always try out new recipes, like the chocolate sandwich cookies with marshmallow creme.
The Advent calendar has been a huge hit with Joseph. He wakes up excited every morning and the 1st thing he asks is to go open the next little door. He totally gets counting down the days til Christmas and flying to Louisiana.
I'm not sure I understand how Lego came up with this "cops and robbers" theme. It's a little disturbing, but at least they threw in a Christmas tree and some presents, sure signs that Christmas is coming.
