Although I've promised a couple of faculty that I'd be available for email questions, I'm officially on break from the University until January 3rd!! I might be taking a vacation from work, but I'll still be blogging.
We have extended family to visit.
And I haven't attempted any Christmas baking.
I've even got a few more gifts that need to be purchased.
None of the gifts are wrapped.
Let's hope I can remember where I stashed everything!
Back on this July post, I shared the set of hand-painted Christmas elves that Chris rescued from a barn occupied by a raccoon family.
Chris got all the motors working and the elves are now hard at work making toys in our living room.
The amount of labor these tiny creatures clock in is pretty astounding.
If you think about it, without the help of the elves, Santa wouldn't be nearly as jolly.
Sending you all a little Christmas "elf" magic.
I know I could use a few more elves to help me finish up the cards, shopping, wrapping and baking.
PS. If you'd like to see the elves in action, here's a link to a youtube video that Chris shot this summer of his motorized elves.
In 2008, we traveled to China to adopt a toddler who needed
heart surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot and hand surgery to remove an extra thumb. I'm always happy to share our experience with SN adoption. When I'm not at work, you might find me at an thrift/antique store or estate sale. I also love to sneak in a craft project and decorate our multiple dollhouses with my girls.
Come play with me!

In 2008, we went to the Jiangxi Province to adopt a little girl who needed open-heart surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot and hand surgery to remove an extra thumb. I'm always happy to share our experience with a SN adoption with others.
When I'm home from work, I love to sneak in a weekly craft project or a trip to my favorite antique/thrift stores. Come play with me!
