We know Christmas is approaching quickly because our Elf on the Shelf, Snowy, has been up to shenanigans. The boys love discovering the elf's antics each morning but are equally as excited to open their Star Wars Lego advant calendar. Oliver told me the other day that "December is the best month ever!" Ah, to be a child around Christmas time...
In addition to all the usual Christmas hulabaloo, the excitement around our house has been enhanced by the anticipation of some upcoming visitors. My parents get here in less than a week, and the boys are insanely excited to see them. They have been working hard to get the house ready for our first visitors in Abu Dhabi! There are so many holiday decorations in our house now that I'm not actually sure where my parents will put their suitcases.
