These are Advent Calendar Pixies from fjorn scandinavian. I'm seeing lots of pixies, tomte, and gnomes lately!! And now the little Santa Lucia dolls are ready too!
Did I ever tell you our family secret? My daughter is an elf and after lights go out at bedtime, she sneaks up to the North Pole to make toys for Christmas! She was born a week before (Dec. 17th) and she can wiggle her ears just like one!! But, shhh, don't tell anyone! I always kiss her goodnight and tell her to hurry back before the sun comes up! (My son is a leprechaun... that's the Irish "Quinn"...his middle name... in him! He was born March 20th... 3 days after St. Patrick's Day!)
Only another week until Thanksgiving and the Macy's Day Parade...hooray!!! I LOVE the parade and I love to watch for my Snoopy float! I don't know why...just a long standing tradition!
Today's Art Day went fabulously and they did enjoy the pop-up card! (and the flip books, and the Chippewa Birch Bark Canoe, etc., etc. ). I LOVE LOVE LOVE watching children make art! And one boy who has a learning disability found that he could draw well, which led to him trying other projects and he came away from the morning beaming ear to ear! He finally felt like he was good at something! That's what makes it all worthwhile!!! And I even got a couple hugs too! You know I love that!
