"There's Room For Everyone On The Nice List!"

Do you ever wonder what to do with your children's Christmas lists?
Not sure how to get them to the North Pole?
Well, wonder no more! I'm about to share a very fun, very easy Christmas tradition with you! It is in my top 3 of favorite Christmas traditions!
Every year, on the eve of December 1st, our kids set out their shoes by the front door. Then they carefully roll up their Christmas lists and place them inside their shoes, so that the Elves can take it to Santa Clause. Usually, my girls put out their snow boots (because they hold more). Anyway, the Elves take the lists while the kids are asleep, then leave behind some Christmas treats and a small gift. In years past, the kids have received Christmas socks, or a Build a Bear outfit, or some jewelery, or some perfume or whatever the elves see fit to do.

I hope that if you decide to do this tradition, you'll love it as much as we do!

"The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear". So with that in mind, here are 2 songs for you today:
Pennies From Heaven by Louis Prima (from Elf)
Holiday Road by Limp Bizkit (from Christmas Vacation)
I should note that I'm not trying to skip Thanksgiving, just wanted to give everyone a heads-up on a super fun tradition.
