And then it was over…

We gathered the cookies.

Placed the Santa key on the door.

And waved goodbye to Elf on the Shelf.


In the morning there were gifts, delicious food, and family.

My heart was full.

We danced.

We sang.

And we laughed.

We squealed and tickled.

Relaxed and snacked.

And we poked fun.


We hugged.


We exchanged beautiful gifts.

Drank delicious drinks.

And got loud (okay maybe just me).


We loved her up!

      It really was.
      But I’m starting to think your eight days of magic are pretty awesome.

    Looks like a good Christmas! Love her lovin’ on the Pillow Pet – so adorable!

      She wanted that pillow pet so badly. Every trip to the mall she would run for it.
      My parents got it for her and she’s in heaven.

      This was the first year we used them.

    Fill that soul up right to the brim and let it spill on over…just don’t spill it on my new winter coat…I love my new coat…and those smiles.

    • multitaskingmumma
      December 29, 2011 | 12:10 pm

      You got a new winter coat?
      Fer reals?
      I asked for one.
      I got a purple sweater that makes me look like swollen grape.
      So I took it back and bought my own winter coat.

    Aw, bye bye Elf on the Shelf! Hope I’ll see you again next year. Stay away from Barbie, will ya?

    What a lovely Christmas day you and your family had, Leighann. Look at the smile on that little girl’s face! Precious, peacock mama! lol

    • multitaskingmumma
      December 29, 2011 | 12:08 pm

      She keeps asking where elf is.
      She doesn’t understand why he’s not hiding somewhere every morning.
      I think next year it will be harder for her to part with him.

      She saw your picture and said, Who’s that?
      I said “Leigh Ann, mommy’s friend.” and she said your name over and over and over saying friend.
