We are ready for Christmas! The tree is up and the house is decorated. We all just love this time of year! We also have started a new tradition. Anita bought us the Elf on the Shelf. The kids named our elf, Fala- after FDR's dog, which they learned about on our NY trip. Fala is a troublemaker though so in the morning the kids get such a kick out of seeing what Fala gets into during the night.
