Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!

This year had some rough times. We have great memories despite it and are looking forward to the new year!

Minecraft Java Design Course (free or 40% off)

Tris and Trace finally discovered Minecraft. Tris' new thing is to watch videos of people playing games on youtube and for the last couple days all he's wanted to watch is minecraft (to the exclusion of actually playing his own games). So Dad and I broke down and are buying the $27 game download card for them as a gift from us for Christmas (which is more then we've spent on a game of any sort in YEARS). My only saving grace on this one is that I have enough smartpoints in the homeschool buyers coop to get the $250 Minecraft Mod Design 1 Course ($149.99 at 40% through the co-op without smartpoints CLICK HERE) for free to add as part of the . This way we can get some school hours out of this game/sudden obsession ;-) I can't wait to see their reactions to getting this and I think Tris may really enjoy programming. I hate dealing with java, but hopefully he doesn't =p

Elf on the Shelf Coloring Fun

Happy colored a picture for the boys! His elf letter asked them to color one for him.
The cards Happy creates his elf size letters from (by folding, placing an address label with boy's name and address, then stamping with miniature North Pole postage) are found at another blog by CLICKING HERE.

Elf on the Shelf and Lipstick on the Mirror

Happy was up to no good again, I don't know how these little scout elves stay on Santa's nice list. The elf letter hint said that it's fun to write in Mom's lipstick on the mirror... uh-oh!

Trace's Hormone Kit Arrived

Now let's work on getting it where he won't fit in the child size duffle bag. A bit of de ja vue from opening Tristian's 3 years ago.  The kit has all the trappings of the medication at home and travel. From the sharps container to a lunch box size cooler and a bag to haul it all in. Tris' bag was adult size and we don't use it much for this or otherwise. The first shipment actual meds should be coming soon and we can start getting our seemingly permanent tiny tot to big boy size ;-)

Elf on the Shelf- Candy Cane Search



I scattered candy canes all around.
They are just waiting to be found.
Find them all and bring them here.
Put extra candy canes on the tree this year!

Brownies Make a Happy Elf

Our Elf on the Shelf got in on the baking fun tonight after the boys were in bed. While Dad and I were wrapping up making neighbor gifts. Happy was busy finding a new spot and leaving Tris & Trace an edible message.
