Let the Pre-Christmas Preparations Begin!

Ok, so you may or may not remember the last time we had the Elf on the Shelf in our house and it was a total age 4, Kayli was totally disgusted with the "snitch" that had moved into our house, and not at all convinced that Santa would approve of this behavior. According to Kayli, "Santa and God both know that I am doing my best!" (Can hardly argue with that logic) Anyway, we sent that elf packing, and just last night, there was a very cute show on t.v. about the Elf on the Shelf, and it redeemed Kayli's faith in the little elves. Since she has been privy to the magic of fairies, she now understands that they are really working on her behalf, and only wonderful things can come from someone that travels by the magic of pixie dust. We found our elf, put a Barbie skirt on "her" and named her Tayli! We registered on the official website and placed Tayli on Kayli's bedside table last night.
Sure enough, she magically re-appeared this morning in the pile of presents under the tiny tree in our library...
What? Presents, under a tree, already? Well, another pre-Christmas prep activity we decided to do this year was to wrap 25 Christmas themed books, and place them under the small Christmas tree in our upstairs sitting room/library. Beginning on December 1, and leading up to Christmas day, every night, Kayli will get to "open" one book-present before bed, and we will read it together! This is as much a gift for me as it is for her since one of my favorite times of every day is the end-of-the-day-reading-books-at-bedtime time!I Just Love it! Christmas Season Here We Come!!!
