It's the most wonderful time of the year ...

Christmas is here and we're finally all decorated at the Cain house! It takes longer to decorate as the years go by, but with all the 'help' we had from Catherine Ellis it sure made things go more smoothly:) We got our tree on Saturday and started decorating on Sunday. The house was finally completely decorated by Tuesday night. Let the good times roll!

I can't believe she is big enough to hang ornaments!

Our tiniest elf!

She provided the joyful noise while we decorated!

Don't drop me Daddy!

And guess who arrived Friday?? Elvis the Elf! If you're not familiar with The Elf on the Shelf - take a look. Basically the elf arrives a few weeks before Christmas (and the children get to name the Elf - funny that Catherine Ellis picked Elvis, hysterical actually) and reports back to Santa each night about the behavior of the little ones he is watching over. The neat thing is that each night he travels back to the North Pole and when he arrives back at the house he lands in a different spot. The next morning the kiddos (Catherine Ellis at this point) have to search until they find him. He has some odd hiding places - this is where he was this morning:

Meet Elvis everybody!

And last but not least to get us in the full spirit of Christmas we went to the Mountain Brook Village Christmas Parade on Sunday. Wouldn't you know we missed the parade, but it didn't matter, we still got to play with our friends, see some cool firetrucks and most importantly talk to Santa - here's how well that went:

Um, yeah. Santa did not go over at all for
Catherine Ellis and Caroline just isn't real sure what is going on here.

Three cutest kids you'll ever find under the tree!
