What does a great boss do when you surprise him by turning his office into a duck blind? . . . He gets out his beard and gear - and celebrates his Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday!

Last year we decorated our principal's office for his birthday with tinfoil. We had to top that this year. He is a duck hunter . . . so we turned his office into a duck blind.
Complete with a cooler full of soda and snacks . . .
Happy Birthday day to our Blue Jay Commander . . . we all agree he's a great boss!
Of course our crossing guards had to get in on this one!
. . . as did my little Christmas Elf.
Happy Birthday Jeff - your the best!

It has been suggested to me by more than one person that I should take some pictures of skeleton "Bob" . . . with a Christmas elf. Evidently some people find these little elves and all their activities somewhat irritating. (Let me just say . . . this little elf is not a Target "Elf on the Shelf" . . . he is a decoration from my childhood and is probably older than I am . . . so I am a tiny bit sentimental about him) . . . but if a friend asks something of me . . . I do what I can. So for all of you who are fed up with all the cute "Elf on the Shelf" photos (you know who you are) . . . these are for you
Never stop laughing!
It has been a busy morning already - and it is definitely feeling like a Monday morning . . . so I am going to do everything I can to enjoy it. At least it looks like it will be a busy day . . . it should be time to go home before I know it.
". . .Wow, you're fast. I'm glad I caught up to you. I waited 5 hours for you. Why is your coat so big? So, good news - I saw a dog today. Have you seen a dog? You probably have. How was school? Was it fun? Did you get a lot of homework? Huh? Do you have any friends? Do you have a best friend? Does he have a big coat, too? . . . " ~ Buddy the Elf

I got everything done on my list today - shopped a little, baked a little, cleaned a little . . .
I didn't quite get my Shabby Charlotte doll done . . . but I need to think about how I want to accessorize her and what is going to go into her story. I should have her listed for sale in a couple of days.
I included a link to the cookie recipe above. They are good . . . very sweet, but small enough that it isn't too much.
Only ten more days to work before Winter Break . . . yes, I'm counting.
I have a list of things I want to get done today . . . we will see if that happens. On the list . . . shopping, put out some of my origami cranes, bake cookies, put up a few more decorations, take some pictures, finish my doll. Add to that laundry and a some cleaning. So that is why I don't always get done what I want to get done - too many things I like to do.
Happy December 8th!
It was a beautiful night . . . although it was cold. In spite of the temperatures we decide to go downtown to the Christmas parade. I intended on taking more pictures, but I was much happier with my mittens on . . . so I only snapped a few. Just a simple, old fashioned parade with marching bands, scout troops, old cars, trucks, and a few horses . . . lots of lights and Christmas carols . . . cold, but fun!
The window displays are my favorite . . . I am thinking we need to go back another night without the crowd and parade . . . and hopefully some warmer temperatures - just to take some more pictures.
Back at home - I brewed a pot of coffee, poured myself a cup - complete with whipped cream and enjoyed the warmth.
