HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY ~ DECEMBER 12, 2016

I’m keeping it short this morning as my mom is here and we’re celebrating Christmas early. If the weather holds we are going to spend the day at Brazos Bend State Park, one of our favorite alligator parks.  I hope to post some great pictures later in the week.

HOMEMAKING/COOKING TIP

FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA
This year I’m doing “long distance” elves on a shelf for my munchkins again.  I have so much fun trying to come up with new ideas.  This one was sentimental though as they are playing a game I played many a time with my grams and this was her board!

I love seeing what you do with your elves. I admit I have fun trying to think of things for our elf to do as well. I do think I enjoy it more now that my boys are older than I might have if this had been a thing during their earlier years, not so much stress. Hope you are having a wonderful week and visit with your mom!

After dropping mom off at the airport I spent the better part of the afternoon rectifying that and cleaning my head off. I still have 4 loads of laundry and vacuuming to do, but at least it is now tidy.

I actually chuckled with your looking around the house "I just don't care" hahahahah Boy do I get that a lot, sometimes I just feel like it's whatever, I'll deal with it later. 🙂
