Hard to believe it’s less than a week! Are you all ready? Bonus points if you’re laying low this time of year, come sit by me. I’ve been to exactly zero parties, and all the hustle and bustle is STILL too much for me.
Most of you know Amy Snow, our Elf on the Shelf substitute. She plays the same role, and though the boys appreciate the wonder of having a magical doll in the house, it doesn’t actually affect their behaviour (if anyone was wondering about that). I’ve been posting her adventures here once or twice a week instead of spamming you and Facebook every day. Here’s what Amy was up to this week…
She chilled with Shaun (from Shaun of the Dead), which my husband finds hilarious, given Amy’s past as a zombie. She actually spent two days up here this year, because the boys didn’t find her the first time.
Me: Hey, Amy should do that. Like, fully clothed and adorable.
AJ: That’s not possible.
Me: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
It was a fairly acrobatic week for Amy (especially since I forgot to move her post-Christmas Ball, and needed somewhere to throw her before the kids saw):
She needed some time to reflect on Thursday. I know that feeling.
Hanging out with the big guy himself. Man, I wish I could bend like that…
I like that Santa. He has a book. Excellent.
So that’s it for now. Amy usually sticks around for Christmas morning (unlike most elves– I love not having to follow the rules!), so we’ll do another update then if there’s time, and then she’ll be gone for another year. Who knows what next year will bring? This one sure has been fun, though!
Now, I need to go figure out what to make for supper tonight. It’s our eleventh anniversary today, but AJ has to work until at least seven, so no going out for us.
I’ll see you all around next week. Don’t know how much I’ll be posting, but I’ll try to get around to visit my blog friends. Love you guys like candy cane ice cream.

My that Amy is a bendy girl! So much imagination…so little time! I think I loved the reflective day the best….who doesn’t need one of those?

I am so laying low this year. I have avoided more than I have joined. Pass the cocoa.

Love Amy’s scarf! I’m glad she’s still spreading Christmas cheer! She’s quite the trapeze artist.
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas, Kate!

Amy’s awesome … thanks for posting her continuing pre-Christmas antics.
