Christmas presents

Patrick can't decide what he wants for Christmas. He has a train and that seems to be all he wants this year.

I asked him to think of one gift that he wanted.

Guess what that cutie said?

He said, "I just want the best mommy in the whole world."

Jingle Bells

I plugged in the ipad last night so it would be charged for lots of minecraft playing.

Patrick went over to the ipad and asked me if I charged it and I told him that I had done that.

He said, "wow, you are my jingle bells".

Phrases that I never thought I would say:

2/15/2014: No, Don't wipe your nose on the coffee table. Go get a tissue.

Last night, I got home from a meeting. Patrick said, "oh how was your meeting, mama?". Spoken like a grown up!

He wanted to dress up like Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates. He gathered Woody slippers, a white shirt and his sister's Awanas Cubby's vest. He turned it inside out and found a bandana.

He looked adorable. I mean, tough like a pirate. Then, he claimed a box and I made a mast for his ship. He created a map and a flag for his mast.

He woke up this morning and put this exact outfit on again. I was having a hard time convincing him that it wasn't a good idea to wear this to Preschool.  His big sister knew the right words, though.

She said, "You should not wear this to school. Wear your Spiderman jacket to school and save Jake for when you get home. It makes it more magical." Because she is wise and a big kid, he trusted her words.

He also wants to play pirates with Maggie this afternoon and wants to sleep in his cardboard box ship tonight. Maybe Maggie can help me convince him that it wouldn't be a good idea.

He reminds me of another cutie. This is my brother in 1987. He was pretending to be Peter Pan. I love that his shirt is on backwards.

Blue Turtle's Bands

Last week, Maggie came home from school with the school newspaper. Look at this cutie on p. 3 on the school newspaper. It's Maggie! She was interviewed about her rainbow loom bracelet business.

I love the shout out to the tithe she gives to church from her profits.
