5 on Friday

Did this week fly by for anyone else? I can't believe it's already Friday although I'm definitely not complaining.

Let's get to this week's 5.

Our Elf on the Shelf, Sparkle, was a few days late but finally arrived on Wednesday night. He usually brings a little gift with him when he comes and this year he brought matching Christmas pajamas for the boys. Ben LOVES pjs so he was thrilled and Jack was beyond himself with the elf. We let Jack touch him when he first arrived and now he doesn't understand why he can't play with Sparkle. The struggle is real.

Speaking of things Jack can't touch, he's also obsessed with baby Jesus in our nativity. Everyday he says "baby," "baby." The nativity set was given to us by J's grandma so I'm a little protective and don't want it to get broken. I guess I'll be making a trip to Toys R Us to pick up the Little People nativity set. 

I plan on making Natasha's Korean Beef this weekend. I'm a little intimidated to try it, but it looks so good.

I'm obsessed with the pictures from our photo session last weekend and I had the hardest time deciding on which ones to put on our Christmas card. I'll post more next week but he's another sneak peek.

I officially put away all the pumpkin and other fall scents and busted out my holiday candles. My favorite is Winter from Bath and Body Works. I know I've said it before, but I think the Bath and Body Works candles smell stronger and last longer than Yankee ones.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

  2. I popped over from The Farmer's Wife link-up. Your family pictures are fantastic! And we have that nativity set and it has been loved on adoringly by all four kid. It's definitely worth it. We also have a wooden one that I let them play with.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! It was a miracle that we got a picture of all of us looking at the camera at the same time. The wooden nativity scene is a great idea...I may just have to get both!
