Well, we've been doing more of the same in the past couple of weeks. The kids have continued with their running club. We missed a few weeks here and there, so the kids have actually be doubling up and running two miles instead of one. They have the much anticipated "Jingle Bell Run" with the group coming up this weekend, so that should be a blast.

This year, we started the "Elf of a Shelf" tradition at our house. The kids have had a great time waking up to see where "Elfey" will be and what mischief he has gotten into. The kids named him...real original, huh? And, the spelling? Well, that came from a 2nd grader. It's been fun surprising the kids each day, but I know that by the time Christmas is here, we will be running out of cute ideas for our buddy, Elfey.

And finally, we've managed to get a brief taste of cooler/cold weather. FINALLY! The Munchkin was excited, because he's really been wanting to wear his new Avengers shirt and matching knit cap. I love how little it takes to make my kids happy!

Life is about to get a bit crazier, as we've hardly done any Christmas shopping at all and I have photobooks and Christmas cards to hurry up and order. It seems that I vow each year to get my shiznit together the following year, but yet I never do! Ugh! Oh well, somehow we still manage to get everything done. Funny how that happens!
What is the weather like in your neck of the woods? Do you have an Elf on the Shelf?
