Elfin’ Shenanigans: Week Three

This whole week has been insanely busy! But, it IS the week before Christmas, so I shouldn’t be so shocked! Here are this week’s elf shenanigans in the Della-Coletta house!

Monday, Buddy was so excited for Aiden to return from his Grandparents’! So, he brought Aiden a few special treats!

Tuesday was probably my favorite so far. Buddy painted Aiden’s nose red while he was sleeping! (I also videotaped this one, and it can be viewed on the NATM Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/notjustanotherteenmom )

Wednesday, Buddy roasted some marshmallows over one of Mommy’s candles!

Thursday, Buddy munched on some sugar cookies and juice, while reading “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” (Mommy’s favorite Christmas story)

Friday, Buddy hung out with Mommy’s snowman by the fireplace. Too bad it was 65Β° here in NC and we couldn’t light it!

Last but not least, we woke up this morning to see Buddy rocking out.

Elf Diaries: #8

Buddy is currently spending the weekend at the North Pole while Aiden spends the weekend with his bio-Dad’s parents! πŸ™‚

Here are some photos from the rest of this week:

Buddy decided we needed to make cookies on Wednesday!

Weeeeeeeeeee! -Buddy

Missed posting yesterday since I was a bit under the weather, so I figured I would do a double post today! πŸ™‚

 

Yesterday, Buddy made a zip line that ran across the living room with ribbon and a candy cane that he swiped from our tree πŸ™‚

Every time Aiden left the room, Buddy slid a little further down the zipline. He never gets caught!

Then, he landed on the tree, where he stayed until bedtime!

Today, Buddy got into Mommy’s markers again!

Apparently D0gD0g (Aiden’s stuffed dog lovie) isn’t very good at TicTacToe. He only won once! Aiden couldn’t get over the fact that DogDog snuck out of his room while he was sleeping!

Buddy was lectured again for using Mommy’s markers without asking. He took it like a champ. πŸ˜‰

Elf Diary 3: Elf on the Swing?

Apparently Buddy got into my craft stash last night and made himself a swing using my ribbon, and a toilet paper roll!

Buddy also wrote Aiden (who has been EXTRA…ummm…three-year-old-ish the last few days) a note reminding him to be NICE! And to make a Christmas list so that Santa’s helpers…aka the Grandparents… will leave Mommy alone! πŸ˜‰

By the way, if you decide to try this one, you need some weight inside the TP roll to counter the weight of the elf’s head. These seashells worked perfectly, and Aiden couldn’t see them from his angle.

Elf Diaries: Day 2

I’m not sure if Aiden was more concerned about the fact that Buddy colored on his face, or the fact that Buddy was holding Mommy’s markers. (Aiden isn’t allowed to touch them after a certain hallway wall re-decorating fiasco.) Either way, day two was successful…so far!
