Thanksgiving weekend

These first 2 photos are Jackson and Emily taking photos of each other with Copper the dog.
Decorating the tree at home

Nana and Papa wore out the kiddos
Four days off together, I still can't believe it.  We went to Nana and Papa's for a few nights then came home on Saturday afternoon and still had all day Sunday to put up the tree and decorate the house.  Jackson had a blast playing with his bff Emily. 
On the way home we stopped and purchased an Elf on a Shelf.  That has been a pretty funny experience and Jackson is super pumped up about finding it every morning and of course he has been on his best behavior!  He reported me to the Elf when I wouldn't let him have candy for dinner.  I overheard him telling Elf that he needs to tell Santa to put Mommy on the naughty list because of it!  Ha!
I really enjoyed my time with Bill and Jack this last weekend.  Jackson is such a sweet, loving, child.  He is smart, sweet and funny.  I can't believe we are lucky enough to have him in our family.  We are truly blessed!

Chuck E Cheeses!

We went to Chuck E Cheeses again!  Jackson likes to play air hockey, but Daddy prefers to just get tickets to get a prize at the end!  He rode every ride there about 3 times, and really enjoyed himself.  At the end, after all of his hard work....he chose a blue whistle.  Go Jackson!

We had a pretty fun Halloween!  Jackson had a nice program at school.  He is the spiderman on the far left beside Batman (AKA "Brock").  He sang all the songs but it's hard to tell because he didn't want to take his mask off.  He sang "Halloween is here",  and the verses were "black cat sitting on a fence", and "owl is hooting in a tree".  He did have a conversation with Batman during most of the event though. 
When we got home, we walked our new neighborhood and Jackson said "treat or treat" about 100 times.  He always said thank you, and is just such a good kid.  After we went around, we passed out candy at our house for awhile.  He seemed to enjoy passing out candy as much as receiving it.
