All the first signs of the Christmas season are upon us – it’s after Thanksgiving, the stores have gone Christmas crazy (even more so than they were pre-Thanksgiving) and Advent began today!

This means things around here are going to start getting to be a lot of fun, because I have it on good authority that a certain Elf on the Shelf will be making a return appearance this year, starting later this week.

And one other sign of Christmas – I broke into Choppy’s box of Christmas clothing today! Expect some random Choppy posts from now until Christmas.
