The Elf in the Kitchen


Lily waiting for daddy to join her in the kitchen.  She's going to teach him how to make a gingerbread house.




Charlotte, ever alert, senses something delicious is about to occur.


Finally getting started on the important stuff.  Lily makes sure daddy opens the pre-fab parts correctly.


Almost finished, Lily adds a few final touches.

And then....


She's off to attend her first Nutcracker performance with mommy.

Back home with daddy....


Charlotte sees the perfect opportunity to gum some of those leftover treats!!

Let the festivities begin!

  24. Ah, those are some precious little elves you have there! Sweet, sweet baby girls! Bonnie, I love you photos of your dining room. The shot of the clementines is gorgeous! AND, I will have to be trying the cranberry upside-down cake. Evan LOVES cranberries. I made a pear pie with a cheddar-crisp topping today... pretty yummy! We are big fans of fruit in either sweet or savory recipes. Hugs ~ Tanna
