There are so many things I love about the Christmas season. Time with family, the cold weather, decorating the tree, cookies, and watching the joy on Parker and Caity’s faces. Most of all though, I think it’s our elves Sammy and Sophia. Planning out a month of fun things for them to be doing really keeps me in the spirit of wonder and excitement all month. Not to mention watching the kids faces every morning as they look to see what mischief they got in.
Last year I created a calendar to help facilitate Sammy and Sophia’s daily movements. It made things much easier and a lot more fun! Out of all of them these were probably my favorite.
This year I want to incorporate a little decorating and family oriented. Sammy and Sophia stick to more lighthearted mischief and role model good behavior. I also don’t focus much on them reporting back to Santa although desperate times we casually remind Parker that Sammy has an in with Santa.
