Titus, Our Elf on the Shelf, and other things

Happy December! We have been having fun, especially since our Elf on the Shelf, Titus, showed up! He's a funny little thing that will be getting more mischievous, or so my gut tells me. :) This morning he was found on a shelf in Milo's room, sitting on top of the Snoopy that Milo sleeps with every night...Milo LOVES to find him every morning and laughs when Titus is doing something funny.

Lena is such a girl! She loves to put on necklaces and shoes, she cracks us up! She is also developing a temper, if Milo is in her way or doing something she wants to do she yells and tries to move him out of her way.

Her hair is also getting long, when she gets out of the bathtub, it's actually past her shoulders! Well, the back of her hair is, the top is growing s.l.o.w.l.y.

Here are the pictures!

Lena this morning, wearing her necklace, and playing with Milo's pinwheel.

My Uncle Gary refinished this rocking chair from when he was small and gave it to Lena for her birthday! She loves it (probably even happier since Milo's too big for it!) and rocks away, sitting forward and backwards. This is also her new face whenever I pull out the camera...thanks, Target Portrait Studio.

Milo started his soccer lessons last week and this is an action shot of him kicking the ball. I love how the instructors have them play "Simon Says" once they show them a few techniques!

Milo is showing where Titus was on the 4th morning! He laughed so hard when he found him and kept asking how he got up there. We also have him tell Titus one good thing that he did during the day before he goes to bed.

Once again we went to Hensler's Tree Farm in Hamlet to get our "beautiful" tree. Milo being a big guy and pulling cart (it was raining this year, but it wasn't too cold).

Milo actually cutting down the tree!!! He's the one that keeps calling it our "beautiful tree". Milo and Lena also got to help decorate three trees this year-Grandma and Grandpa's, Grandma and PawPaw's, and ours!

Lena making funny faces while Daddy and Milo decorated a gingerbread house.

Decorating the gingerbread house! It takes a lot of concentration, apparently.

I'm sure that Hanukkah and Christmas will come a lot faster than I'm ready for, so bring it on, December!!!
