Jacie's version of the story

Today was her mimi's birthday. I had to work late so her daddy picked her up so I didn't hear any stories about the day. When I got home Jacie was eating dinner so I sat next to her and talked to her about her day. Our conversation went like this:

Me: Who's birthday was it today?
Jacie: mimis birthday
Me: How old is mimi now?
Jacie: 2, it mimi birthday and my birthday today!
Me: No, its just mimis birthday,  not yours
Jacie: OH
Me: Did mimi get any presents?
Jacie: uh huh
Me: What did she get?
Jacie: Tike (aunt) got flowers, Papa got cupcakes and Jeff (uncle) got mail
Me: mail?? Jeff got mimi mail?
Jacie: uh huh!

Turns out he got mimi a card =) Love that she called it mail!!!

It's only October!

She has become very aware of the sun these last few weeks. Weekday mornings when we wake her up said tries to tell us it is still night time, and then on weekend mornings she is always so excited when she wakes up because the sun came back! With nap time she tries to convince us its still morning and she can still play, and then at bedtime she always sees that the sun went byebye.

Last night she looked out her window like she has been doing and instead of talking about the sun she started talking about Santa! She starts yelling out "Santa coming Santa coming with reindeer, bring me presents" I have no idea what made her think of Santa since we have been focusing on Halloween! I had to break it to her it is not Christmas yet and he will come on Christmas Eve but we have to have Halloween and Thanksgiving first. Her response was "OH" and then she grabbed her Halloween books to read.

Hard to believe next weekend is the last weekend before Halloween!

A little Christmas in October

I know Christmas is still over 2 months away but it is never too early to shop!

I have been in search of a cute Christmas dress for the past few weeks and I found one online which is too cute. It is simple but seriously adorable. I started searched facebook today which I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner. It is from smocked angels.

Then..... I got an email today from Pottery Barn with a free shipping code! I have been looking for an advent calendar for this past year so we can do a 25 days of Christmas activity countdown! I order this calendar and am so excited to get it. I let Jacie choose between the christmas tree and the santa one and she picked santa. Pottery Barn is not normally the 1st place I look for things considering the price tags but this is something we will use for many many years!
