Amy Snow… The conclusion

OK. I know. I suck as a blogger.

I forgot to finish posting pictures of Amy Snow’s shenanigans. I’m sure you weren’t holding your breath or anything, but here you go anyway: photographic proof that I actually kept this up until Christmas.

I know, I was shocked, too.

To the photos!

Whatcha drawin’ there, Amy? A tree? Awww…


“oh, hey.”


Amy came along for a sleepover at my in-laws’ house (my decorations aren’t quite this nice; I think Amy enjoyed the change of scenery)




Amy Snow stuck around for Christmas morning. Know what Santa brought her?

Ryan Freaking Reynolds.


…or a reasonable facsimile. Lucky bit–Er, very deserving and special doll-type lady. I’m happy for you. Really.

All he brought me was a dragon…

“To the North Pole, Mortimer!”


Goodbye, Amy Snow, until next year. Please send my dragon back.

Seriously, I miss him.


Amy Snow… A few days

It’s OK, Amy. The cookies were terrible anyway. Have at it.


Hanging out with Simon Pegg. Probably not a good idea for a doll who started out as a zombie, but it worked out OK:


And this morning we found Amy ballet dancing with a pony, which was wearing a tutu and leg-warmers. Because why wouldn’t she be doing that?


Domestic Goddess

I realized today that my husband is a better housewife than I am.

I had to drive 45 minutes to the doctor for my annual poke n’ prod (and not the good kind, either). I spent an hour in Walmart battling the crowds of coyotes and cows, then picked up a few things for my husband. All told, I was gone for 4.5 hours.

He did three loads of laundry, did the dishes, and scrubbed the dishrack.

I’m not saying I don’t do anything, but that’s impressive for someone who’s not responsible for those things.

On top of this, I just turned on the faucet and shot water all over the kitchen (my bad, shouldn’t have left that tiny bowl in the sink) and accidentally put a plastic-handled knife in the oven.

Good thing I’m good at other stuff, eh? Like… Um… Gimme a minute.

In the meantime, Amy Snow!

Amy Snow, December 15

This morning, we found Amy a wee book labelled with the number 15- she must have spent the night catching up on her advent calendar reading. How sweet and innocent! I hope she stays that way- I caught her checking out the green lantern figure last night.

She also helped decorate the tree today. Only tiny ornaments, of course.


Holiday Shenanigans

So, Elf on the Shelf. I’m going to be honest here: that tiny bastard scares the bejeezus out of me.

Have you seen him? This little toy elf that you buy (I don’t know where, I assume from Hell’s gift shop) and set up every night in random places because… I think the kids are supposed to think he’s alive and reporting back to Santa.

That’s the theory. I think it’s really an excuse for moms to play with toys. No judgement here- I’m the proud owner of… one or two… *ahem*

If you haven’t seen him, google it. I’ll wait. No, not the cute squishy one, the plastic-headed one that looks like he’s going to consume your soul.

He watches you while you sleep. He thinks it’s romantic.

Look at those eyes. That little fucker KNOWS things.

So anyway, I don’t want one of those, because my dreams are surreal enough without adding something to the mix that’s clearly food for night mares. But I do want in on the fun. My kids do, too; they’re still young enough to really enjoy a little Santa magic, and a doll who’s buddies with Santa sounded like a great idea to them.

Hello, spare Monster High Ghoulia!

She lost the glasses and traded her tarty dress for something a bit cozier, and the boys named her Amy Snow. I know, the outfit looks like Cinderella’s hand-me-downs, but it took me three hours to make.

Sad, right?

Point is, the kids love her, we’re going to have a lot of fun with her, and she doesn’t give me the heebie-jeebies or whisper in my ear that I should stab things.**

I’ll post some of her adventures here. For now, here’s Amy checking out the new decorations:


** I just assume that the elf does this.
