Christmas is in full swing at the Campbell house. The tree is up (not decorated yet...tonight I hope!) and the rest of the indoor decor is up too.
Scott was visited by his Christmas elf for the first time this year last night. His Christmas elf, as it turns out is the son of my Christmas elf from growing up, who has since retired, and the brother of Parker J.'s Christmas elf. Franklin, Scott's elf, left a long note to Scott about who he was and how he has been watching Scott be such a good boy (and of course reporting back to Santa). Scott was especially good over this Thanksgiving break, he learned a lot and shared well with all of his friends, and it did not go unnoticed. Yesterday in fact Scott played so nicely at Ryker's house with Daddy, Ryker, Maddox and Beau while mommy and Andy had a girl's day out (it was SPECTACULAR, great company, great food, great shopping!!!) so Franklin figured it would be the perfect night for his first visit. He left Scott his very own Christmas Nativity Scene. Scott has been very interested in all of our Christmas decorations this and has done a wonderful job of playing carefully with them (only one minor Santa hat snafu on an ornament) so the elves figured it was high time Scott have a decoration of his own...not to mention Mommy is not putting out her nativity this year due to its breakable nature, sentimental value and lack of free out of reach surface area.
Scott got up this morning and found his nativity first thing (before breakfast....if you know Scott you know we do NOTHING before breakfast....he asks for "nack" the moment I get him from his crib). Mimi and Papa were spending the night so Scott shared his find with Mimi this morning.
It was a hit! Scott especially loved the animals and baby Jesus (whom he calls baby and if he gives it to you he expects you to rock him in your hands) he also learned to say "Mary".
Please note Scott's snowmen friend to the right. The moment he came inside for decorating Scott has carried him around the house everywhere he goes. If Scott ends up in a room without him he says "oh, where man?" The snowman even spent the night in Scott's room last night.
