Every morning Harrison wakes up in wonder. Sometimes I have to help him find Pulpe so he's not late for school!

Harrison woke up this morning with Pulpe flying around in the air. Somehow that little elf created a swing hanging from the ceiling fan.
So how's your Christmas shopping coming along. I have the best idea for Ryan's present but I can't blog about it b/c that would ruin the surprise. It's a great gift for a guy or gal. Email me if you're needing an idea :)

Every year I purchase or receive a new Santa Claus to add to my collection. Today I overheard a conversation Harrison was having with the Santas.
H holding up two Santas . . .H: No, I'm the real Santa. No, I'm the REAL Santa. Well, I have gloves. Well, I have a long beard.
A snowman walks up . . .
H: I'm a policeman, what's going on here?
That silly elf has been making cookies and this heart was for Harrison. However, he wouldn't eat it because it had an elf bite out of it!

Have you heard of The Elf on the Shelf? We're fortunate enough to have one move in with us for this holiday season. Harrison named him "Pulpe".
This morning, Harrison found Pulpe playing Candyland with his and Waverly's stuffed animals. H noticed Elfie (nickname) won the game. Where will he be tomorrow . . .

Waverly and Lucy were able to meet Santa for the first time during a fundraiser for CARE (which rescues abandoned dogs and cats facing euthanasia as well as providing programs to help people get their pets sterilized). I can't help but laugh every time I look at this image.

Here's a sneak peak of the Christmas card idea. Last week, I took Harrison with me to Target in search for holiday clothes for him and Waverly. Well, he spotted the baby santa outfits and insisted Waverly and him will be Mr and Mrs Claus.
More Harrisonism -
We were discussing the Christmas photo idea . . .
H: Mama, this outfit doesn't come with a beard. I need a beard.
Me: Okay, maybe we can make one. What should we make it out of? (I'm thinking cotton balls)
H: Ohhh, I need a silk beard!
As we were walking into the grocery store, there was an overweight lady texting . . .
H: Look Mama, she has a santa belly!
Luckily, she was too busy and didn't hear him!
Ryan and Harrison were about to build a castle out of blocks when H said:
H: This castle needs lots of closets. It's not a proper castle without closets.
We were admiring a colorful sculpture and discussing the material:
Me: I don't think it is made of tiles, it looks like glass.
H: You're right, panes of glass.
Maybe he'll be a writer when he grows up . . . he certainly has plenty of material.

Babies, babies and more babies! Our group grew to fourteen this month, ranging from 3 weeks to 6 months. Waverly is on the far left sporting her hog hat.
All of us met each other during the Aqua Moms swim class. Sara, who hosted the gathering, created these awesome burp cloths for us. She enlisted my help for the logo design. I look forward to these gatherings each month!

Has anyone read this? I just finished the other night and it was quite fascinating. It's been forever since I've watched Breakfast at Tiffany's so I had to refresh my memory. Did you know she was a glorified call girl? And Truman Capote desperately wanted Marilyn Monroe for the part? Hubert de Givenchy (love pronouncing that name) gave birth to the little black dress for the world to admire and wear.

I heard about Murfie on the Story of the Day podcast. Click HERE to learn more about the world's largest new and used CD store. It's an online platform that allows people to buy and sell music CDs, store physical discs in a secure facility and access rips and downloads via an online account. It's free to sell the CDs you have at home (they'll send you a mail-in kit). Then they will post the discs to your account and the ones you price get listed in a personal shop. You can purchase entire albums for a buck! If this doesn't make sense, just check out the website.

Remember this dress? Click HERE to the tiny Waverly in it. I can't believe we captured this picture with her looking up. She's mesmerized with fabrics, especially ones with designs.
Ahh, the big girl bed is up! This is my bargain metal headboard. I'll take more pictures of her room once it's complete.

I'll lay Waverly on the bed and walk around the room doing my business while talking to her. She always follows me around with her eyes.
I love her little heart shaped face.
This is her "ohhh" face. She doesn't make too many noise just an occasional "ohhh" or "ahhh."
Now Harrison, on the other hand, has quite a few things to say.
We've seen this face a lot lately. It's his mad/serious/silly/funny expression.

I get a lot of project inspiration from Pinterest. Here's my latest project. I found these letters at Hobby Lobby. Normally they are $0.99 but I managed to get them half off. I also picked out this scrap booking paper which was also on sale. I think it was only a quarter!
I have a confession . . . I think my brain still isn't back to it's normal size from the pregnancy. When I got home I realized I forgot to buy the letter "L"!
I traced the letters (minus one) and then cut them out.
I found some bronze/gold paint for the edges. It was around two bucks.
I pasted the scrapbook paper letters on the chipboard letters. I've had this part finished for awhile. I finally found time to purchase the "L" so I could finish this project.
Ta Da! I used sticky tack to place them on her dresser. I still haven't figured out what I'm going to put on the top spot. Any ideas?

Guess who's 4 months today?!!! She's an extremely happy and content little lady. We all love her to pieces. She's mastering scooting backwards. I'll lay her on a blanket and before I know she's wiggling around the hardwood floors. Reminds me of a fish out of water. She's grabbing at toys and starting to lift her chest off the ground. Her favorite activity is watching big brother and pretending to catch him around the house.
Miss Waverly had her 4 month check up today and wow, this girl is TALL! She's 26 inches (97%), 13 lbs. (37%) and head 15.5 inches (11%). She's grown 7 inches in 4 months! I have a feeling she'll be the tallest one in the family :)

Waverly's new favorite hobby is ripping up magazines. Harrison decided to join in on the fun today.
She found and tore out a picture of Justin Timberlake. I'm not sure if she wants to hang him on the wall or can't stand him. Either way, I think I might need to get her a Teen Beat subscription for Christmas :)

Here's a pic from last night before we started our Trick or Treating adventure. This is the first year Harrison has fully understood that Halloween means candy. After awhile, he decided his bag was too heavy and he was ready to go home to bed. He didn't get this for me. When I was little, I would run from house to house until we covered the entire neighborhood and I had blisters on my feet.
