And I thought the amount of miles that I have to drive is bad! Did you know that Frisbee the elf has to fly to the North Pole every night to tell Santa if the kids have been good or bad? Whew!!
If you aren’t aware of how Elf on the Shelf works, your elf (which you name) then flies back and positions himself in a new place to be found by morning…every morning. Did you hear the long pause there? Eeeevvveerrryyyy morning. Oh and if a person ever touches your elf, he or she loses their magic. Don’t touch the elf! Our elf, Frisbee, has become a wonderful tool to help promote good behavior. The only down side… our elf is kinda’ ornry! Here are some of the places we found Frisbee this month.

I have always been enamored with the Christmas season. As a child, I was enchanted by the stories of watchful elves, dancing nutcrackers, and flying sleighs. As an adult, I still find myself charmed by these stories, but even more so, charmed by the ambiance of this season. Christmas in college is much different than Christmas as a kid, but in some very special, wonderful ways. Read below as a give my Top Five Reasons Why Christmas Is Even Better as a College Student.

Well it’s that time. The time between Christmas and New Year’s where I’m back at work, but still thinking about the wonderful times spent with family, afternoon naps I was able to squeeze in, and all the great food I ate last week for Christmas. And just maybe regretting having that extra piece of cake… (In my defense, it was my birthday cake, AND it was the last piece, I couldn’t let it go to waste…right?)

Did you hear that? I'm pretty sure I can almost hear the sounds of Christmas all around - bows being torn, wrapping paper ripping, children laughing, and holiday music playing in the background. It's Christmas Day. A day to celebrate our faith, our family, and all of our blessings. But first, we must thank one very special person.

As a little girl, Christmas mornings didn’t consist of pink clothes, Barbie dolls, and makeup. There were toy tractors, model horses, plastic hay bales, barns, and even fences. I mean, you can’t have a horse barn without fencing, right? But I didn’t just ask Santa for farm toys; I asked for real animals.
