Truth in the Tinsel book. Secondly, as cute as my friend's elf on the shelf pictures are, I have enough mischief in my life without creating extra, and I know my kids well enough to know that if it's cute for the elf to do it, they would try it too! As a giving focused alternative, I am planning to combine the Christmas Angel with Light 'em Up activities. :) I plan to post some of these as we go. Since tomorrow is Dec. 1, I read the Christmas Angel book tonight, and I am making plans. What do you do in your house to keep your kids focused on Christ at Christmas?
And, while 52 weeks of cookies was cancelled by our household running guru, I will be making cookies through the holidays, and I'll post the recipes. :)
