Telling Stories

If you've read my previous posts, you realize my Jackson has quite the imagination. Lately, his new fascination is telling stories or more importantly - you telling him stories of his design. In true Jack-fashion, their are rules and regulations.

#1 - You must tell HIM the story, not the other way around.
#2 - HE must tell you who and what the story is going to be about.
#3 - You must tell him the predetermined story on his time schedule.
#4 - He must be the main character of said story.

After following the rules above, the latest story that I was told by Jack to tell to Jack included Jack as the main character who went to visit Wubbzy (from Wow Wow Wubbzy) on his chocolate motorcycle. While on the chocolate motorcycle, he ran into a skunk who was very stinky. Begin story.

Costumes Revealed

After a long and sorted decision-making process. Jack decided that he would indeed be a turtle - a costume that Mamaw had found some weeks back and that Jack had been "practicing" in. Thanks to a quick trip to Toys-R-Us, I found some sweet little caterpillar costumes for the girls that not only went along with the forest theme of our Halloween but the colors coordinated perfected. I totally scored and the OCD aspect of my personality was thrilled.

So our Halloween went exceptionally well and thanks to lots of help from the grandparents, Jack had an awesome evening. The girls slept through a lot of it, but it's hard work to be this cute.
