The Naughty List

With Christmas fast approaching, I spent a recent night wrapping gifts. Lots of gifts. So many gifts that I didn't go to sleep until after midnight. I figured I'd earned the right to sleep in the next day, which happened to be a Saturday when Vince would conveniently be available to watch the kids. I left my wrapping paper and ribbon in a neat pile on the dining room table and retired to bed.

The next morning, I slept until the late hour of 8:00 am, took my time getting ready in the morning, and entered the living room refreshed and ready to tackle the weekend. This is the sight that greeted me:

Looks like someone's gonna be on Santa's naughty list, and it ain't gonna be the kids.

Perhaps this was Vince's way of discouraging me from sleeping in ever again? Who knows. Well, like the kids, it's a good thing he's cute, because I think there was enough ribbon left over to wrap around his neck!

Ridiculously adorable family you have here. Love the pix!!!! Don't you wish you could rewind this morning and see this all over again? You gotta admit - These little elves are cute - even the big naughty elf that was behind all of this :)

Yeah, it would be nice to be able to rewind to this morning and see all this again. It would be even nicer to rewind about 20 minutes before these pics were taken to the moment BEFORE Vince thought it would be a good idea to let the kids play with the ribbon. Ha!
