We have been very busy enjoying are preparations for Christmas. We have decorated a bit as you will see in the pictures below. We have our tree up in record time. We had a little visitor from Elf on the Shelf. Luke named him Rudolf but we call him Ruddy. The kids have been having a great time looking for him each morning. So far, he has hidden on the Tv, the Santa clock, the ceiling fan, the bathroom light, the Christmas tree and the kitchen light fixture. Today he appeared above the refrigerator, on top of the cabinets. We are counting down the days till Santa comes and enjoying the knocks on the door from all of my online Christmas shopping. Praise The Lord for his blessings.
