I love quotes.  I enjoy coming across a quote that makes me stop and think, or puts a smile on my face.  This week I've come across the quotes below, and I thought I'd share them with you.

"If you judge people, you have no time to love them" Mother Theresa

"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives."  Henry David Thoreau


"Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend."  
Albert Camus

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!  Thank you fro checking in with me.

24 Days of Elf on the Shelf ~ Days 10, 11, 12, & 13...

Day 10
Our sneaky little elf dyed our milk blue!  The boys thought that was so funny.  All of our cereal, homemade biscuits, and gravy were blue.  Very fun to two little boys. :)
Sam brought them chocolate Santa's for their day 10 advent gift.

 Day 11
It was cold on night 11, and I think Sam enjoyed cuddling up with Bruno.
He brought the boys joke cards for their day 11 advent gift.
They are such fun cards.  You can find them HERE, if you would like to print them out for your kiddos.  They would make a great stocking stuffer too!
You can print these from Over the Big Moon.  She offer's 3 sheets of very funny/cute jokes.

 Day 12
Sam played in the "snow"! LOL!  Cotton balls make a little elf very happy!
For day 12 Sam brought the boys Santa Pez dispensers.  They've never had a pez dispenser, so they think they are pretty fun!

Day 13
Sam did a little fishing today.
He used an unsharpened pencil, and twine.
He brought the boys chocolate Santas for their day 13 advent gift.

We're still having so much fun with this.  Boys can't wait to get up in the morning and see where, and what Sam is doing.

I hope you're having a great week!

24 Days of Elf on the Shelf ~ Day 8 & Day 9

The little blue-eyed boy had an accident the other day, and accidentally touched Sam.
It was a sad afternoon with lots of worrying, so dh went by the mall to talk to Santa.  Santa gave him a tiny little box with a small amount of magic inside.
The little blue-eyed boy had to sprinkle it over Sam's head, and it would give him his magic back.

Luckily it worked!
I think Sam decided to get even with the little blue-eyed boy, because when he woke up he found a surprise on his face!

LOL!!  The blonde-boy had some on his face too, but apparently he woke up during the night to use the bathroom.  Saw his face, and washed it off.

The boys received fun jokes from Sam for their advent gift.
The jokes are so fun, and you can find them HERE.
She offers 3 sheets of fun jokes.
Lot's of gigglely fun on the morning of day 8!

Day 9
This morning we woke up to find Sam in the kitchen.  He had set out all of the stuff needed to make pancakes.  The blonde boy was excited about that!  He's been asking for pancakes all week!
Sam brought the boys vanilla pudding cups for Day 9 with clear plastic spoons.
They loved that!

24 Days of Elf on the Shelf ~ Day 7

It looks like last night was movie night!
The boys received a nutcracker shaped snickers in their advent bag.

In other news, the little blue-eyed boy touched Sam this afternoon!!
I think I remember an emergency Elf on the Shelf kit on another blog.
I'm off to search for it!
Poor Sam..no magic!  I hope he can be fixed!

24 Days of Elf on the Shelf ~ Day 6

That crazy little elf hung the boys' underwear across the livingroom! Ha!

The little blonde boy wasn't feeling like a photo-op this morning, but the blue-eyed boy was happy to show off his advent goodie.

Happy Thursday!
