It’s day five of The 25 Days of Christmas with Patrick, our Elf on the Shelf.
That means there’s only twenty days until Christmas. We’re not ready yet. Are you?
I know we still have a ton of shopping to do. And did I mention all the wrapping? Plus I’m making all of the kids and my boyfriend homemade presents.
Two days ago I made all four kids burlap Christmas sacks that they LOVED. They were so excited when they found out those were their new stockings.
Seriously, though, I need to get my butt in gear and get more stuff done. Otherwise I’m going to find myself up super late on Christmas Eve finishing up on last minute gifts. It wouldn’t be the first time. If I have to again, Patrick will keep watch over me, just like he did Blake last night.
Before we went to bed last night Patrick decided that he would have some fun with the kids. He taped some crepe paper across the children’s doors so when they woke up they would walk into it. However, it didn’t turn out quite that way Patrick wanted it to. They both decided to crawl under the paper instead. They did find it amusing, though. My son was laughing about it this morning while getting ready for school.
