elves & dancing. (but not dancing elves.)

December 1st, we awoke to find a houseguest perched on our kitchen window. Mistletoe the Elf had returned to keep an eye on the kids during the days leading up to Dec. 25th. Each night he reports to Santa their deeds, making recommendations for the lists "Naughty" or "Nice". Last year he was kind in his feedback to Santa, which was evident by the mountain of gifts left under our tree. We hope he'll be as generous this year!

December 4th, Halle had her first dance recital in Sandy @ the Festival of the Trees. In September, she began taking classes at a nearby studio, Dancin' It Up. It was fun to watch her perform and shake her booty--or as Halle says, "Shake what your mama gave you" (Thanks, Alvin & the Chipmunks...). She remembered to smile the entire time and I have to say my baby looked beautiful! She practiced her routine a lot at home and I think it paid off--she was great! I wish the pictures were better but we were sitting pretty far back. Afterwards, we had a great time looking at all the interesting trees and displays. People are so creative!
