As in in thousands of homes across North America, our little elf, Cricket, has arrived on the scene.
As usual, Cricket helped us celebrate his arrival by preparing us a Christmas breakfast complete with a festive table setting.
He always brings a note, too, encouraging our three children to be on their best behaviour in the weeks leading up to Santa's arrival.
This year, our 6 year old daughter, Afton, was able to read the letter to her brothers. What a proud moment!!
And what did Cricket prepare? This year all the ingredients for waffles were laid - out including some yummy toppings that the kids could add to their freshly made breakfast.
"Thanks for breakfast, Cricket!"
Cricket's adventures have begun. We have already found him in a variety of crazy situations. And everyday we hear the kids say to each other, "You'd better be good - Cricket's watching!"
Have a wonderful week - 16 days until Christmas!!
Hugs and warmth to all,
