Annual Tree Hunt, Grumpy Gnomes and Santa's Spy

This past week Dave took a day off work and we went tree hunting.  Not only did we find a nice tree for our living room, we found an angry little bah-humbug gnome running through the tree farm.  The only noise it made was high pitched screaming.

Decorating the tree, Andi had a great smile on her face.  I was the one who turned into a bah humbug gnome after Andi broke an ornament and started pulling things off the tree and out of boxes faster than  I could keep up with.

Dave and I looked at each other and reminded each other why our tree only had 10 ornaments on it the years the twins were 1 and 2 yrs old.

I have twice found Andi opening her presents from under the tree, which is why I have introduced the Elf on the  Shelf.  The girls love looking for the little elf every morning and after she disappeared suddenly (by falling behind the bed), the girls are certain she IS real and that she DOES fly back to Santa every night and tell him if they were naughty or nice.

I hope she stays all year.

Our Elf on the Shelf named "Holly June"
