Home for the Holidays

Well, we have a new addition to our family...

A couple of weeks ago we took some supplies to the SPCA to help out the animals at the humane society. The girls were invited to feed the rabbits while we were there since they brought a load of stuff for them. Then we went to say hello to the cats and dogs that we took treats for...... Ben took one look at me and I knew we had to take him home!!

He is A.MAZ.ING!! We are so lucky! He fits into our family so nicely, it's like we've had him forever! CD tries to play dress-up with him, CJ tells him all about her day and has those special talks that every girl has with her dog. He is a sweetie!!

When I saw him and then saw that his name was Ben it made me think of the song Michael Jackson recorded in 1972 (great year by the way) and was his first #1 hit!

Ben, the two of us need look no more
We both found what we were looking for
With my friend to call my own I'll never be alone
And you my friend will see, you've got a friend in me

"Ben, you're always running here and there
You feel you're not wanted anywhere
If you ever look behind and don't like what you find
There's something you should know, you've got a place to go

I used to say, "I", And "Me"
Now it's "Us", Now it's "We"

Ben, most people would turn you away
I don't listen to a word they say
They don't see you as I do I wish they would try to
I'm sure they'd think again if they had a friend like Ben
Like Ben, like Ben

Holiday Elfcapades

Our Elves are here!

Today these two cute little 8 inch elves were in the girl's advent calendar.

You can read more about them at

Holiday Elfcapades.

(Our elves spent some time at the salon and got hair styles different from the other elves. They wanted a Christmas makeover.)

They will be with us until Christmas Eve keeping an eye on our family and preparing a report on who is naughty and nice. Every evening they will return to the North Pole (with the use of some magic) and let Santa know all that they have seen or heard. When they come back to our house we've been told that they may have some fun/ mischief or "elfcapades." I've been told to watch out, they may hide around the house, have a cotton snowball fight with some of our other toy friends or have a movie night, peek in gifts or sleep in the freezer because they miss the North Pole.

CD named her Elf ~ Disney

Tonight I already heard CJ whispering to her elf and telling her all about her art projects and the art gala she had the night before.

CJ named her elf friend ~ Giggles.

I am so excited to start this new Christmas tradition with the girls... I wonder what Disney and Giggles will do tonight when they return?
