Elf Night

K, this was one of those things I threw together one year thinking it would be funny, and never imagined it would become one of the kids' favorite traditions.  But it did.  And they look forward to this every year.....
We love all of our Christmas movies, but I'm pretty sure Elf is our favorite!  So, on Elf night I cook up a big ol' pot of spaghetti, dish it up for the kids and let them top it with m&m's, colored marshmallows, pop tarts, chocolate sauce and, of course..... Syrup!!!

Yes, it's gross.  And gets worse when they mix it up with their hands "Buddy style" and actually eat it!!!

..... and wash it down with their own mini-bottles of Coke!!!  Followed by a belching contest, which, btw,  I have never won.  It's hilarious and lots of fun!  Because "(we) just like smiling!  Smiling's our favorite!"

Of course, they can't eat very much of this stuff before they feel a little sick, so I'm on stand-by to serve them a real spaghetti dinner complete with garlic bread and some of that green salady stuff.

Then we all watch the movie..... and snuggle!!! 
MY favorite part! =)
