This was Jackson's first Pajama Day at Preschool. He thought it was so funny to wear your pajamas to school. He was the most excited because his teacher told the class they could also bring anything they sleep with (blankets, stuffed animals etc.) So of course baby and blanket needed to go with. I will blog about them soon:)
Jackson really wanted to wear his Old Navy rocket jammies, but that type are pretty skin tight. As much as we love him in those jammies we couldn't let him go to school in his little skimpies. He'll thank us someday!
This was Ellee's first time wearing her hair in a pony tail and pig tails! It barely fits, but I think it's so cute! She sure looks older with her hair like that. I have never cut her hair and I'm growing out her bangs. This is about 21 months worth of growth. It's sure taking awhile!

Ellee had so much fun, she pretty much was squealing and pointing the entire time. At one point I walked over with her to show her the gorillas and they "came to life." She would not take one more step foward, so I had to carry her and then she was fine staring, pointing and looking a bit confused.
Much to my surprise I think Jackson was a little nervous....that was a shock...Seriously! He stopped dead in his tracks when I tried to get him to walk closer to the elephants. We had to explain over and over again that the animals weren't real. He kept saying he knew that, but something still kinda got to him. He was really curious about the gorillas and kept asking when they were going to "wake up" again. He did say he loved it though!

In the past few weeks Jackson has really taken a liking to coloring. I mean really coloring. Either the whole page is colored, or everything on it. Thank goodness! I was getting a little worried when I would see his work posted on the preschool bulletin board and his work wasn't even colored on. Not.one.single.mark. I love that he plays with his tongue or sticks it out when he is concentrating so hard.
Since Brother is coloring so is Ellee! We are working on not sneaking crayons in our mouths!
PuZzLeS are AWESOME!
Jackson has a few 25 chunky piece puzzles, but the other day I bought him a 100 piece, 3-D Cars Puzzle. He pretty much can put it together. I just have to help categorize the pieces for him and away he goes!
Hours and hours of fun!
All the kids at their New Years Eve party at 8:00pm. We did a count down and everything to 2009. The party was over around 8:15 and it was off to bed! I wonder at what age this won't work anymore?
