Captain Jingles

Josiah is on a Cheerios kick so I bought him some today at the store so I thought it would be perfect to use for the Elf on the shelf tonight! Nothing too fancy but here are some pictures!

This morning Josiah was excited to see Captain Jingles and to get his police stuff back. I thought it was funny because Captain Jingles fell off the police car and Josiah started to almost cry because he wanted to pick him up but knew he wasn't supposed to touch him. I told him that moms could touch the elves without them losing their magical powers to fly!

This is so much fun!!

Elf on the Shelf

I finally went to Barnes and Nobles and got the Elf on the Shelf! I don't know who is more or Josiah!!

We read the book and the book numerous times and then Josiah named him. He really wanted to name him Captain America but I vetoed that!! I compromised and we named him Captain Jingles!

Josiah recently got all of his costumes/dress up clothes taken away because he was bad. Today he was a little better so I let Captain Jingles bring back his policeman uniform. Captain Jingles left a note saying that he heard that Josiah had been good so he talked mommy and daddy into letting him give back his police stuff. Captain Jingles also wrote that if he continued to be good he was sure that he would get the rest of his dress up stuff back and he would also tell Santa how good he was!!! Hopefully Josiah will be excited in the morning!!! We will see!

Adalyn's 4 month pictures

Adalyn is almost 6 months old but I haven't had the chance to post her 4 month pictures yet!  It was nap time and she didn't want to smile for us!  They still turned out awesome!  Thanks to Jaime!!!  Here are a few of them!

Jaime also did our family pictures recently.  Once our Christmas cards go out the door I will post those!  They turned out great too!

Thanksgiving MDO

Last Thursday Josiah had a "play" at Mother's Day Out. They were supposed to sing a song or two and then eat thanksgiving lunch! There were tons of people there.

The many costumes of Josiah

Saying Josiah loves to dress up is an understatement! He changes all throughout the day. I'm talking like 15 times per hour! It's ridiculous but I've come to realize this is what he does!!! So here are a few pictures of his many costumes but not all of them! The best costumes are the ones he makes up by himself! They boy has an imagination.

Ears part II

My last post was about ears (Adalyn got her ears pierced!)  This time, it wasn't such a cute thing that happened.  They both ended with the same result though...crying..

Last night we put Josiah down around 7:30.  He went to bed fine. 

Around 9:30 Josh and I were about to turn on the computer to watch some t.v. (we don't have cable anymore because all of the shows we watch can be watched on the internet) and I hear some whining.  At first I thought it was Adalyn but then we heard it again and quickly realized it was Josiah.  We ran into his room where he proceeded to scream bloody murder.  I automatically go into panic mode.  We try to calm him down but he won't even speak to us. :(  My mind is running wild thinking the worst things.  Finally between Josh and myself we got him to calm down enough for him to hear us.  We asked him what hurt and he pointed to his ear.  He was in so much pain we decided to give him some Tylenol and take him to the ER.  Mom came over to watch little bit while Josh and I took him.  We got in quickly and it didn't take long to find out that he had his first ear infection. 

The Tylenol must have kicked in pretty quickly because he was full of energy while we sat at CVS at midnight to fill his prescriptions.  He is such a trooper! 

First ER visit and first ear infection.  I know we will probably make many trips to the ER because he is all boy but I hope our next one is way in the future.

We took Adalyn to get her ears pierced this weekend! I felt horrible. She cried. Everyone looked at me like I was this worse mommy ever!! But she was fine a few seconds after and she looks even more beautiful if that is even possible!!!!!

This year Josiah dressed up as Captain America and Adalyn was a ghost. Aunt P makes chilly for us every year and they come over. We walked around the neighborhood and Josiah had a great time!! At first he tried to hand out candy that he had in his bucket to the people at the door but he quickly realized that they were supposed to be giving him candy!! Ha!!
