Trip to the tree lot with my little elves: (please dismiss the nose boo boo on Carsyn's face- I assure you it happened due to a completely innocent Dolly Parton Christmas dance party).
Carsyn put ornaments on the tree in her room all by herself. She is loving Christmas this year and every morning she runs to each tree asking to turn the lights on.
We read the Elf on a Shelf book to Carsyn Thanksgiving night and she aptly named her Elf, Noodles. She loves finding her every morning!
Noodles rode in on Cinderella's carriage one morning and put a wreath on her castle the next. She also brought Carsyn 25 books of Christmas and we have been opening one a night to read before bed.
We went to see the local Nutcracker production and Carsyn was so very excited. She set through the entire play and kept asking for the Nutcracker to come back.
