Just checking in....

Hey y'all. I hope you had an amazing Christmas. We did. Jackson was so funny! He woke up bright and early Christmas morning and we told him that we were going to go see what Santa brought him. He walked into the living room and said, "Wow!" He loved all his stuff! He keeps saying that Santa brought him a "Christian" when he means to say kitchen. Too cute! He also got play food and dishes, some books, a sleeping bag, TONS of playdoh, monster trucks, a motorcycle, a big rig filled with cars, a tool bench and millions of accessories, a weed eater, and so much more. We even got an Elf on the Shelf for next year. I'm so excited about that. We named our elf Scout, so I can't wait to introduce Jackson to him next year. Our house looks like it imploded! We spent Christmas morning with my family and then made the drive to Mississippi and spent the weekend at the Wade's house. We had a blast with everyone and Jackson's first Christmas where he actually knows what is going on was extremely memorable. I will post tons of pictures later!

In other news, Operation Big Boy Bed has officially started. We switched Jackson's crib and crib tent out for a twin bed this past Sunday. I love his bedding. We got a reversable navy blue/red quilt with adorable construction/truck sheets to match. It is so cute! I'm so glad that Jackson is growing up, but I am REALLY gonna miss that crib tent! So far I would give us about a 60% on getting him to actually stay in his bed. He loved the new found freedom of being able to throw the covers off and use his new bed as a trampoline. Bedtime is going to take much, much longer now but I know that eventually we will get into a system that works great for us.

Next up: Operation Lose the Paci. We're taking baby steps here people. Baby steps.

Oh, and I think it's kind of cool to let you know that I am ending my bloggy year with my 400th post. Aren't you proud of me? I hope y'all have a wonderful and Happy New Years. I'll see you in 2009!

One of my favorite reactions was MG's Christmas when she was 2. I love the idea of the Elf on the Shelf too. It completely freaked MG out when I told her about it. She asked a million questions and just could not get past how the he might show up in her bedroom. Maybe she will change her mind next year. And don't stress out too much about the paci : ) MG was 3 but it eventually happened.

Santa brought him a Christian!! How cute is that?

Good luck with Operation Big Boy Bed - sounds like it's going well. We're starting to think about moving our youngest to a big girl bed. It will be great to have it done, but I will MISS THE CRIB! Containment....it's a good thing!
