We also introduced Ellie to The Elf on the Shelf.
We hid the book and put the elf on the mantle. Luckily, she found the book first so we read about how an elf watches to see if you have been naughty or nice and then reports back to Santa each night. Soon after reading the book Ellie saw the elf. She named him Jesus. We would tell her that Jesus was watching her and she would say "Mom, he is just a toy"!
Since Emily didn't get to help decorate I wanted to add a few pictures of her on Thanksgiving. You can tell she really enjoyed her meal!!!
After lunch her cousin Will was drawing so she picked up a pen and here is her masterpiece. Monkey see monkey do!!

What was Emily doing? After she realized that we were not going to let her play in the makeup she played with a ball. She reminded me of a puppy playing fetch. It was so cute. She would throw it and laugh and then go get it and do it again. It amazes me how she will play by herself for so long where Ellie would never do that!!!!!!!!!!

On another note....Ellie was playing dress up upstairs the other day and when she started down the stairs this is what she was wearing.She was acting very shy and told Chris and I that she was at her wedding. She was the bride and she asked Chris to be her broom, not groom. It was so cute!!! Oh, excuse the mess on her stairs. That is where Ellie kept putting her stash of clothes after she tried them on. She could play dress up all day, every day.

Then she drew this one and said it was a whale in the water and it is sprouting water from the top and now he is going to go deeper and eat people. Totally her words, not mine:)

I also want to give a little update on what Emily is up to.....everything. You forget how curious they are at this age (10 1/2 months). She has 6 teeth now and is crawling everywhere, including the stairs. She says several words now but her favorite is cracker. Every time I get close to the pantry she says it. It is so cute!!! She is going to be my little screamer. If she doesn't get her way she squeals like crazy but I imagine that won't be cute much longer. Here is a picture of her with dad.
