Fall Family Challenge: N is for Naughty or Nice

My daughter had been feeling better for almost a week now but my housework is still really far behind! Does anyone else find that the further you get behind that the harder it is to get going in a forward direction? I hate that feeling!

Parents generally like this time of year because they don't have to remind their kids so often that Santa is watching. Every kid knows about the naughty and nice list, and whereas I don't know if there are any kids out there that actually, in fact, have received a lump of coal or no presents for Christmas, but the threat has been working for centuries.

N is for Naughty or Nice... it's Santa's List and he's checking it twice!

Elf on the Shelf

I love this holiday tradition! How does Santa really know what's going on around the holidays? His little helpers, of course! This Elf on the Shelf comes with a darling storybook. Your elf is super sneaky! Each day leading up to Christmas the kids can search the house to see where the Elf is on the lookout for them that day. How magical! I wish they had this tradition when I was a child because it sounds like so much fun.

Do your kids need a little nudge? Visit this super cute website with them to answer questions like "Do you keep your room clean?" When the quiz is over, submit your answers to find out if you are on the naughty or nice list, and receive your official certificate. Click here for the EmailSanta.com quiz.

For younger kids, skip the quiz and visit this site that will rate your name on the "Nice-o
-Meter."

I can't believe that the holiday season is already upon us!

  3. Hey there :) I am your newest follower. Hope you will check me out too :)
    I soooo know what you mean about when you get behind having a hard time catching up. Sometimes it seems I can NEVER get caught up. LOL

    I am the mother of a 3 year old and we just underwent a HUGE move from Pennsylvania to an island in the middle of the Bering Sea. I am still trying to get caught up from that. LOL

    Anyway. Nice to Meet you :)
