This is the house


And the pet shop


I've got another house, a fire station and a church (starting the fire station next). You can't really see it well, but here's the setup

Good Luck Brittanie! I need to make a list too....I don't think there's a lot of things, but I think they'll take some time.

I am adding this to my list...

So i talked to my DH about the Elf on The Shelf and he really likes the idea but $29 is really steep for us (like 1/3 of when we spend on each kiddo) I found a DIY on pinterest I am going to attempt. Since Scarlett is 4 I'll make a book next year... when she can read it. I just need to find out what is in the book... but that is an issue for another day. Any way here it is...

So Dh is out and about today and so I called him and said go pick me out a doll with pointed ears. From what he said I think it might be this one... I cannot wait to elf it out!



I am surprised it has brown eyes because we had a long talk about what color eyes we wanted on our elf... But I guess this is an elf to make Tessa feel less freaky because she is the only one in my family with Brown eyes. All my brother's and sisters have light eyes as do all their kids, and of course both my parents too.

I REALLY wish I had thought of making our own Elf on the Shelf.....I was stupid to pay the $29 PLUS the $7 for the skirt :smackhead: Nicole, if I get a chance I'll PM you the story from the book or PM me your email address & I'll email you pictures of the pages so you have an idea what those are too....that way you can create your own book with pictures you find (and modify the story a little bit due to copyright infringements ) ....if I email you the pictures then I don't have to load to photo bucket first.

I also will hijack Brittanie's thread with my to do list....but first I need to write one up.

You are very welcome Nicole! Jaylen loves her elf..."Annie" (named after Annie on Little Einsteins). DH overheard her the other day as she was riding her "horse" in her room saying "Annie! Look at me I'm riding my horse! I love you, Annie!"

Is that why I haven't written mine down? Because I'm afraid of being overwhelmed?
