New Treasures.

I told you that I'd show you the new treasures I found at Gertens. Then I forgot. I remembered after last night when we picked up the *latest* edition to our tradition carnival that's been going on. I heard about this tradition. Thought "oh, how cute." Then I kept hearing about it...well now we have it.
Ok these ornaments are the "finds" for the tree. A pretty pine cone.

And cute little snowy house.

Then this sweet little angel for the cupboard.

Now for the new tradition:

Have you heard of this? I know some of you have elves that visit. This one comes with a story about what he does...

He reports back to Santa every night on what he sees and hears. The children are told they can't touch him or he'll loose his magic. He can't talk to you, because Santa said so, but he does hear you, so you can talk to him. In the morning he comes back the children need to find his new spot where he sits. You also have to give him a name. Some of the names we thought about:

Cardy (Roo suggested)
We decided on
He has been a huge hit here in his brief time here.

Now I have to clear something up. Sarah over @ the Parsonage had a post in which she claimed to have bedhead. This is for her.

Sarah, THIS is bedhead!

How's this for honesty y'all!!!!


Ok you asked for it! For the brave.

DO IT! You just may win this:You want it sweetened?

Ok how about a little mocha on me? $5 Starbucks gift card. There are a few rules:

  1. No ratting or zuzzing
  2. No makeup
  3. in Pajamas

We'll just see how brave y'all are.


  1. I love the pinecone! I've not heard of the elf tradition but what fun! as for bedhead - you've got nothing on me, girl! (except you're braver than me!)
