Hey Everyone! Hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving And to the readers in other parts of the world, I hope you had a great week!
Well let’s catch up, shall we?
I mentioned last week that I was taking the week off from blogging and it is a good thing I did, because I got sick with a bad head cold. Ugh… Bad timing immune system, bad timing. I made the best of it, because honestly what else can you do, but I am still under the weather. But hey, at least my head doesn’t feel like it is going to explode from all the congestion and sinus pressure, so at least that is a good thing! 😉
Luckily, the worst of my sickness occurred after Thanksgiving, literally the day after, so I was able to make a pumpkin pie with my kiddo. It was almost from scratch because I used a store-bought crust, but I made it, and it was gluten-free! Absolutely delicious, let me tell you! And my 5-year-old helper agreed. She kept asking, “Mommy, is there any more pumpkin pie left?” several times on Friday, but sadly that puppy was all gone. Inhaled by everyone
We also took the kiddo to see Santa Claus and get her picture taken with him. She was excited and told him what she wants and received a candy cane for coming to see him Too cute!
On another note, the whole “Elf on a Shelf” thing freaks me out. The elf seems to always be looking at you no matter where you happen to be standing, and I know if I was a small kid, that thing would terrify me. Isn’t there another way to let your kids know that being good is the preferred option other than resorting to the creepy elf? Just saying…
I am super excited friends, that the holiday season is in full swing! It is truly my favorite time of the year!!
How was your Thanksgiving? Are you creeped out by the “Elf on the Shelf”?
