Story Time

Well we attempted story time at Barnes and Noble again this morning. The usual happened... Jackson runs up on stage, begins bowing, clapping and demanding attention from all. I pull a screaming child off the stage with 20 eyes watching me. He enjoyed the first 2 songs then was so over it. He would much rather play with the train table in the back. So thankfully Aunt Sarah came with us this morning so I had back up! It was great seeing some of our friends but Jackson could have cared less about story time. In the end they always color and Jackson loves that part! So maybe he will get use to it eventually!

We are now at home and while Jackson is playing I am trying to teach myself how to make bows to put onto Christmas presents. Here is my first attempt...

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday...I have a feeling tonight the Christmas tree maybe making an appearance in our front room!

Is that Christmas in the Air???

So I thought the blog could use a little update. For some reason our family is already in the Christmas spirit and it is only a few days after Halloween. We just love Thanksgiving and Christmas time because we get to spend so much time together with our family. So the blog face lift reminded me of Christmas and I love it:) We are holding off every night bringing up our Christmas decorations! You probably are thinking we are crazy! I think a big part of the excitement this year is the fact that Jackson is going to enjoy Christmas this year. We are thrilled to get to be a kid again at Christmas through Jackson.

So on that tangent I wanted to let you know that if you are in the area and would like to get in the Christmas spirit I am hosting my Mary Kay Holiday Open House!
