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!


  1. Love the Elf on the Shelf! And I can't believe Jackson put Mommy on the "naughty" list. We have never done the Elf on the Shelf but I am thinking about getting one! The tree looks great!

  2. glad you guys are doing well, jackson is adorable! im glad to find another successful russian adoption blog, even though there are a lot of sad/scary stories out there. so thank you for updating and everything, i know a blog can be hard to keep up with and time consuming :)
