Merry Christmas!!!

Matthew 2New King James Version (NKJV)

Wise Men from the East

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”
When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:
‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
For out of you shall come a Ruler
Who will shepherd My people Israel.’[a]
Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared. And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the young Child, and when you have found Him, bring back word to me, that I may come and worship Him also.”
When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. 11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Smarty was nestled all snug in his bed,
while visions of sugarplums danced in his head.

Have a wonderful day, for Santa Claus comes tonight!

Mele Kalikimaka!

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That's the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii's way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Smarty's family doesn't live in Hawaii.....Mele Kalikimaka anyway!

Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store......

"Every Who down in Whoville, the tall and the small,
Was Singing!  Without any presents at all!
He hadn't stopped Christmas from coming.  It came!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!"

Just Tweet It......

There's a certain little joy that comes from a retweet.  In this instant world that we live in, a retweet is like a little pat on the back, a little hug, a little kindness.  Spread some kindness and retweet something today!

Joy To The World!

There are only 11 more sleeps until Christmas and there is always so much to do this time of the year.  

Shopping, decorating, baking, wrapping.  It's so easy to get caught up in all of the things.

Smarty wants you to remember to have JOY!

JOY for the food in your fridge.  JOY for the home where you live.

JOY for your family and friends.

JOY for your health.  JOY for your kids.  JOY for all of the love you can give.  

Have a joyful week!

Not that kind of teepee.....

My daughter has been studying Indians in school so there's been a lot of talk around our house about where Indians live and about building a teepee.  Apparently Smarty misunderstood and thought that he would help out.  Silly Smarty, we were not talking about toilet paper!!

Underachiever? Yes, indeed!

This is a great post from Baby Rabies! I create the scenes and photos for Smarty the Elf and I love to post them daily. My kids enjoy seeing Smarty's antics. They tell their friends about it and take pictures of him to school. Here's the thing, I am FAR FROM an overachieving mom. If you had a sneak peak into my laundry room right now you would shudder in horror. I am not good at baking cookies or decorating cupcakes. Our house might be a little messy but I am creating memories for my kids that I think they will remember for a really long time. No matter if your elf hides in the same place every night or just moves to a different spot, your kids will remember and they will love you no matter where the elf lands. Make your own path, do your own thing, live in the moment.  ‪#‎elfontheshelf‬

‪#‎ProTip‬ If you're planning to do the Elf On The Shelf this year, here are some things to remember.
1. He doesn't have to be there all of December (ours shows up for 12 days now... if that).
2. He doesn't have to bring anything to your kids.
3. He sure as hell doesn't need a pet.
4. Or a girlfriend
5. He doesn't have to repel down from your ceiling
6. Or have a snowball fight
7. Other elves that are repelling or having snowball fights that show up in your Facebook feed should not have the power to make you feel like less of a parent. That's on you.
8. He can go home early
9. He can not show up at all, if that makes your life easier.
11. Make this month about what makes you happy. That may or may not involve an elf. THAT'S YOUR CALL and whatever you choose is okay.
