Today is of Many Scenes

The Elf on the Shelf has joined our family this year. His name? The boys decided on "Charlie Claus ourlastname". This morning they found him sitting atop the blinds near our table, looking out into the backyard. 
 A good scene from today: Brennan working on his math, the fun style of muffin tin-pom pom -tongs manipulative. He had a blast sorting the pom poms at first, then we moved on to a counting exercise.
 He took it very seriously, and was proud of himself for knowing "0" meant to put nothing in that section. I love that my boys love math!

 And our backyard, a not-so-great scene. We've had horrific rain, which is starting to combine with snow/sleet/hail. Our backyard is flooding, only getting worse each hour. This was earlier today. Pictured below is normally the little paved patio section.
 Blurry, but you can see how the water surrounds our shed and is getting worse. Ugh.
But hey, beef stroganoff for dinner, a Christmas tree to decorate, and it makes it much nicer inside than outside.
I'm hoping we don't wake to a delay or anything tomorrow...they say we might get 1-2 inches of snow tonight, and hit freezing temps.

Hope it's dry where you are!

We had beef stroganoff for dinner last night, too! Well, the boys and Chris did because I did not have enough points for it. haha! I had a salad. I am so sorry about the flooded yard. Our backyard does that also. It is so irritating!
