Here he is on the mantle....isn't he cute.....notice the picture of Jon there on the right...doesn't he look JUST like Edie Claire???
Supposedly this little elf guy is full of mischief......and it appears that he didn't waste any time settling into our Christmas tree...see here he is pretending to chat with Big Al but I suspect he was trying to sneak a sip of that Starbucks drink......now anyone who know either of us knows how we L!O!V!E! our Starbucks...so that ornament is perfect for our tree. And Big Al....well his appropriateness goes without saying......ROLL TIDE!!!
So no laughing at my sparse fireplace/mantle....keep in mind that I have 2.....I repeat T!W!O! mobile curious really really fast climbing monkies....I didn't want to hang the stockings just yet out of fear that some innocent little curious climber will pull them all off in 1/2 second FLAT! Stocking holders are heavy and the ER is busy this time of year....so we definately want to stay away from there. Right now anyway! So this is what I came up with...their names spelled out in candy cane striped letters......stockings are in a pile next to the tree.
Now......I know how you all love pictures of pictures....right??? But I could not resist....I finally had our first family picture framed.....better late than never. Please don't mind my BIG FAT you know what.......ahem...I did have twins three weeks before this was taken.....but anyway look at those teeny tiny babies....my arms would fall off now if I tried to hold them both at the same time...oh it goes fast!
