I love to read. I have so many wonderful memories of reading from when I was a little girl: curled up in my parent’s window seat with my parents and brother, reading stories before bed; my Dad reading us The Hobbit when we were a bit older; and my Mom reading Harry Potter aloud to me in the hospital when I was in my early twenties! I have always loved books, and when our little girl was born, I knew I wanted to try to pass that love of reading along to her.

It seems that the cold snap may have come to an end, but the warmer weather has brought the rain! If you are looking for things to do with the kids, check out my new post up on Victoria Moms Blog: Top 10 Kid-Friendly Rainy Day Outings Around Victoria.
This post is a little late, due to all of the events and To Do’s associated with Christmas! Elfie was also quite busy during the week leading up to Christmas. Here are a few of the things she got up to:
Elfie’s second week has been a busy one! Check out what she’s been up to!
I know that not everyone loves Elf on the Shelf. Some think he/she is a bit creepy, and some just don’t have the time to be posing an elf every night before bed. Both concerns are incredibly valid, and have definitely crossed my mind! We have not taught our daughter any of the backstory about Elf on the Shelf – we just told her that Elfie has magic, and she often comes out to play while we are sleeping!
Every morning Baby E gets up and searches for Elfie. I hear her squeal when she finds Elfie, and she usually has a conversation with Elfie (for example, answering “Thank you Elfie!” to a note Elfie left telling her to have fun at The Nutcracker!) Despite the time it takes each night … I just cannot stop a tradition that brings such genuine happiness and amazement to my daughter’s life!
