Ugly Christmas Sweaters

We were invited to a Christmas Party tonight and everyone was asked to wear an Ugly Christmas Sweater. How do you like the twiner Ugly turtle neck and sweater vests combo we found? The party was so much fun. There were a lot of our friends and neighbors there. It was pot luck and the food was amazing. We played a lot of fun Christmas themed games and just had a lot of laughs. Thanks for a great party. I like doing things like this because it gives me a chance to get to know other neighbors and couples.

The Elf on the Shelf: Day 8


Kaison spotted Kevin first thing today. Kevin is back!  I didn't think we would see him for a while. No explanation to why he cut his weekend getaway with the Tooth Fairy short. His note said he would be back Monday. There is a few theories being tossed around the Rasmussen house. Kaison thinks Santa must have found out and got mad that he left. Peyton thinks that he just missed us, or that he knew we were about to call Santa and tell him he had a runaway Elf. I think he came back because my eyes are broken and I need another set of eyes around the house to watch the kids. Kasper our dog thinks that he came back to play with him when the kids are not watching. Brandon thinks that Kevin and the Tooth Fairy lost all the Tooth Fairy money in a game of craps in Vegas and that they both decided it was time to get back to work. What ever the reason our little trouble maker is is back.

The fact that he hid in a heart shaped wreath makes me think he must have fallen madly in love with the Tooth Fairy. I am sure of one thing, as long as Kevin is here we will be well entertained. The Kids missed him and I think Mom and Dad missed him a little bit too.


The Elf on the Shelf: Day 4

Kai came up the stairs and got Brandon out of bed wanting to play a game. He took Brandon by the had took him downstairs and attempted to convince him to play Starwars Monopoly. After some convincing Brandon got him to settle on Jenga. Peyton then wanted in and hurried and got dressed and ready to play. About the time I got some breakfast made for her she noticed our Christmas Elf Kevin sneaking a little Breakfast of his own.

Kevin was literally hanging from the chandelier spying on the kids with his breakfast ih hand.

Apparently  Christmas Elves on the go like a Nutrigrain bar in the morning to power up for long day. After breakfast I took Peyton in to get her hair done and get her ready for school. We were all busy. Brandon getting ready for work , and Peyton getting ready to head out the door to school.

When Peyton was about to run out the door to the Bus she noticed that Kevin had finished his breakfast and made a huge mess in the process. Peyton said "Mom he really is a real Elf". She was standing there in disbelief as she realized that we really do have one of Santa's Magic Elves staying with us until Christmas. The kids were so excited. I wasn't so excited to clean up after this little messy Elf.

So for all of you that have your doubts about Christmas Magic, my kids can testify that it is real. I hope you all are getting in the Spirit of Christmas and enjoying your Holiday season.
