Santa's Helpers

Here they are....all geared up and ready. 24 days and counting!
A quick Ellie story, too. We live in town, but have some wooded area behind our house that houses deer. Well, around this time of year, we see them quite frequently as they come out to roam the area a bit. Ellie saw a HUGE buck a few days ago appear near our backyard and was thrilled to see one so close to our house. This got her thinking. She told Brian and I very matter-of-factly that this deer that we saw, was in fact, Rudolph. She thinks that Rudolph lives in our nearby woods, and he is there to check on all the kids in our neighborhood to make sure they are being good. Everyday, she watches out our back window to let Rudolph know that she is being good....and is excited for him to eat carrots at our house not too far off from now.

The kids look adorable in their hats! My goal for the week is to get our tree up and try to get a pic of Drew in his Santa's hat for our Christmas card. I can't believe Christmas is almost here -- yay!!

You could use that to your advantage....Rudolph probably reports directly to Santa!!

Your Christmas blog looks cute! I'm not patient enough to try to figure all of that out.

The kids look too sweet in their Santa hats and I love it that Rudolph lives in your back yard. That's soooo cute.

Hi cutie-pie Ski's! Love the hats!

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Love,
Little Ski (Ellie)
