"Santa" the elf

We had a busy week around here as usual! Brad's littlest sister, Megan & hubby, Chad, were back to visit for a week, so Braxton is STILL talking about his Uncle Chad, and how he has 2 Uncle Chad's!!! He is learning there are 2 of a lot of people! There is "big Jett and little Jett" at school...the "red Uncle Chad, and the Uncle Chad with no belly button"....((I better explain that a bit. Chad had Husker attire on and Braxton noticed all his red. As for my brother Chad, he was in a horrid accident years ago and with many surgeries, he was left with no belly button))..."big Carson (his cousin) and little Carson at school"...."great Grandpa Alan, and Alan Bender..these are some of his favorites he talks about often. He thinks it is pretty cool to know 2 people with the same name! He's having a hard time understanding why people call daddy, Uncle Brad, 'his name is not Uncle, it's daddy!!!' he shouts at them:) So much to teach a 2 and half year old! And we have learned not to forget the 'half'!!! And everyday he asks if he is 5 yet! NNOOO!!!! That seems crazy to think of preschool and kindergarden and etc to follow!!! I believe school is where he first learned 'big and little' though. So by being tall makes you big in his eyes (not fat) just to clear that up!

Before having Braxton I remember thinking how cute it is when kids wear their halloween costumes when it isn't even halloween! And when they dress themselves and totally Don't match! Well, we are now there! Living reality and I LOVE IT!
Doesn't he just look awnry?!?!

I guess Brad does know how to run my camera! What a lovely shot:) Braxton wanted to sleep on his cars couch one night, and being the parents we are, sure why not! Well, he takes every nap on there and has slept there every night since! One night he asked if I would lay by him for a bit, sure thing! I thought I'd just pretend to shut my eyes...yea...3 hours later I woke up to realize I had a great snooze!

Uncle Chad.Aunt Megan.Braxton

He had a BLAST with these two!!! They haven't been back for a year, so I'm sure he was a totally different kid then when they last saw him!

Brad was in a wedding this weekend...which means lots of Grandparent time for Braxton! He started Friday night off at "grandma kor-fus's' house" where they had a houseful of people for Thanksgiving meal, followed by waking up Saturday morning and saying 'I go Grandpa Bob's house now, right mommy!" but, it wasn't a question, more of a demand! To let you know how his stay was, well, let's just say he started crying and screaming when I went to pick him up! He DID NOT want to go home:( He told me he helped Grandpa Bob move snow with the first thing we had to do when we got home this chilly morning...yep you guessed it! Although he did say that Grandpa Bob doesn't have a dumptruck like him:) We are SO lucky to have grandparents (on both sides!) around so close!!!

Okay!! Story time! I was on Pinterest (LOVE IT!!) earlier today and Braxton happened to see the elf on the shelf on the computer and asked all about him. I told him what I knew and followed with telling him that if he was really good, maybe, just maybe Santa would send and elf down for him. He followed with, 'i wanna take a nap momma'! OKAY! I will never turn down a kid wanting to take a nap!!! The crazy part of this, is that while he was napping, this package was delivered on our porch...and Brad and I had NOTHING to do with it! I know I know, Santa brings the elf you are thinking...(but being realistic to all you parents--someone had to bring it!)
Let's just say we have great friends!!!

We had to get a picture with "SANTA the Elf" before we picked out a spot for him to sit for the day! yep, he named him all by himself! We decided that whatever name he first picked that we would go with it:)

This is where Braxton placed him. I sure hope "Santa" doesn't need all them kleenex's when he sees how naughty Braxton is!

And I sure hope that "Santa" the elf remembers to sit in another spot tomorrow...ahh...that would be tragic if he didn't move:)(note to self!)

Happy December!!!
