Did you remember…. the 1st night of December (insert Earth Wind and Fire tune) lucky for us, our elf did remember to pay us a visit. Santa sent his elf Cupcake Dustybum to ours on the first night of December. He left a wrapped present for the girls.
But first, they had to read the official North Pole letter that our elf brought.
In the letter, Cupcake pretty much threatened them to be good, or ELSE!
The present was the Elf on the Shelf book that Santa sends them each year. They each took a turn reading it.
Along with the book, Santa sent them each an animal ornament, so nice, that guy!
Then the girls ran all over the house looking for Cupcake, every noise, anything out of the ordinary, it HAD to be him. But alas, he didn’t show his face until the next morning.
He got himself all tangled up trying to write a joke.
What kind of pictures do elves take?
Elf-ies. Haha ha ha ha
Speaking of pictures, I took one of him and this is what I got.
Spooky eh? I didn’t even show the girls, they would have been in distress.
Apparently there was a cold going around Averi’s classroom and I guess Cupcake must of caught it. We woke up the next morning to this….
I think we should take Cupcake to get his Covid vaccine, just to be safe. If this is who he is kicking it with at night, we can’t be too careful.
We went and picked up a tree while the girls were at school that day.
They were so excited to decorate.
They asked Alexa to play the Justin Bieber Christmas song, repeatedly.
Later that afternoon, we had a belated traditional Thanksgiving with Shawna’s mom. I had a game plan, the potatoes were prepped and ready to cook, stuffing was a no brainer, rolls just needed to be heated, but, there’s always a but, the turkey was still partially frozen, or so I thought. I over compensated for the cooking time and I’m pretty sure the (13 lb. ) turkey was done in an hour and a half. I had the oven safe digital thermometer inside of the bird while it cooked, and it read done hours before I was expecting, wtf? Anyhow, I second guessed myself and cooked it a tad longer, and we ended with dry turkey meat. The SOLE reason I’m not a fan on the traditional Thanksgiving menu is becuase there is nothing worse than, dry meat. (Get your head out of the gutter) Boring, not enough dark TURKEY meat, too much white meat AND it was over cooked. Ugh, it still makes me frustrated. Anyhow, I am going to try and make a cranberry pecan turkey salad with the leftovers, wish me luck.
The next morning we woke to this.
Where are his manners?
This morning he was hiding pretty well.
I needed a hint to find him.
So, that is how the first few days of December has gone over here. I can’t wait to see what else Cupcake has up his elf sleeve.
I leave you with this.
