{Running Shirts}

Target got these new running shirts in and I want ALL of them. This is a problem because I'm really trying not to spend money on stuff. I think I have to pick my absolute favorite and get just one. But how do you pick?



Which one would you pick??


{Our Scout Elf is a Slacker}

Guys, I see on the internet all these fancy scout elves that do amazingly awesome things. Seriously, I don't know why Santa sent us a lameo elf. Our elf is so lazy that he often doesn't even report back to the fat man every night. My kids are only at my house 50% of the time which means he gets more vacation days than any other elf out there and he still cant' manage to fly his creepy ass back to the North Pole.

Seriously, your elves do crazy ass stuff. I mean a quick google search found the following...

Take cotton ball baths.
Play hair salon with other dolls.
Wrap your toilet in wrapping paper. {This elf is just messed up}
Using a box of tissues as his bed. {Maybe this elf is related to ours = lazy}
Making snowflakes out of Q Tips.
Building igloos out of sugar cubes.
Flour snow angels.
Messing with the kids milk.
Toilet papering the tree.

There are a million other things these elves do every night. Our elf, barely moves. Geesh! And don't get me started on those naughty elves. Some of these elves need to be in rehab or locked in jail. Not spying on our kids every night.

This is Balsam. And this is by far the fanciest thing he's ever done. He must be getting slack at the NP for being such a loser.


Thank god my kids don't really use the internet yet. They'd be devastated that Balsam is such a slacker elf.



This one loves to have a "picnic" in the living room and have lunch while watching a movie. Who doesn't love to eat in front of the tv?



This is what I got when I asked to look at me. :)


She didn't like this ham. At all. lol.

I'm going to miss her so much next year when she'll be in school all day. I've really come to love our mornings together.


I've always looked forward to when they would all be in school so I could have some time to myself. Now, I'm terrified and not sure what I'll do with myself all day.


I suppose I could play puppy alone but that's a bit weird.




Our Elf on the Shelf Balsam is back! He's a very forgetful elf and often doesn't fly back to Santa at night resulting in being in the same spot two days in a row when the kids come to find him. He's also not as creative as some of these other over achiever elves. No hanging with Barbie in the hot tub or hanging from the chandelier for this guy. He's laid back, does his job and tries to not look super creepy.

I'm hoping I can at least encourage him to remember to fly back to Santa every night. I mean, if I knew my Santa spy was forgetful, I'd be more likely to be fresh. He better get his butt in gear this year. ;)

If you're interested, there's a quick snip it about how our scout elf got the name Balsam in this post.

And creepy ass Balsam is back.  Let's hope he remembers to report back to Santa every night this year.  He's a bit forgetful.  ;)
