Shauntea the Elf and her Shenanigans

So, we may have not done so well at the elf this year.  We did have Shauntea doing something every night except once but we covered ourselves and blamed the dogs.  Sorry dogs.  But the last week before Christmas we may have just quit taken pictures b/c well, our imaginations were just that pitiful!  But thankful the magic of Christmas covered for us and the girls did not seem to notice.  There's always next year!  :)

Eating some candy for the candy jar...


Cut off a ring from our days to Christmas countdown...


Reading the Polar Express to all her friends the night before we all got to go to the Polar Express... 


There's a story with Frosty.  Ava spends most Friday's with Grammy while I get in a day at work and Carli is a school.  She thoroughly enjoys herself and I think Grammy does too!  One day they went shopping, it was probably a Thursday when we had a weird week and Grammy helped us out by getting Ava from school and they were killing time before getting Carli at her school.  They went to Garden Ridge and Ava fell in love with this Frosty the Snowman.  Literally.  Grammy managed to get out of the store without buying him but Ava did not forget.  When Naggy came down and we went to Garden Ridge, Ava remembered exactly which aisle Frosty was on.  We never let her buy it, but each and every time we went to Garden Ridge we had to go visit Frosty.  Ava was absolutely thrilled when she got up one morning to find that Shautea had brought Frosty home to her!


It was a desperate night when Shauntea ended up stuck in someone's money jar... 


We just LOVE minions... 


Sleepover in the silverware drawer... 


Took a ride on an airplane... 


It was a creative night when Shauntea built a snowman, sign in all... 


And then the next night she took Minnie Mouse out for a ride.  This must have been a weekend to have two good ideas in a row! 



Took a ride on a horse, with butterfly wings.  The story behind this one was that the girls had pictures made that day and as a reward got to pick out one toy at the store.  Thus, Carli got a horse and rider and Ava got butterfly wings.  Shauntea was impressed by their selections. 


It's a weeknight...we need sugar! 


Snowball fight!  Built a fort with pumpkin bread loaves and made snowballs with mini marshmallows...



Playing makeup with Ava's new makeup kit and her friends... 

 
A little tic-tac-toe...
 

And then things started to get a little less creative... 

 
After this night we were done.  We still had about nine more nights to go!  She ended up hiding in plants, presents and other random simple stuff.  Until next year!
