Those Crazy Little Boys!

Oh my, I never knew there could be such a big difference between little girls and little boys. I was really convinced that if they receive the same parenting, they would act at least somewhat the same! WRONG! My little guy has really thrown me for a loop. He hits me in the face almost every time I pick him up, Emma tried that once, I have parented them the same. He throws his food on the ground and says Ahh OHHH, Emma never did that, and I never had to tell her NOT to! He throws his toys across the room and no matter how many times I get on to him, he still does it...Oh my, how I was wrong. I do believe consistency pays off, so I will continue to "try" to get him to obey me, but the whole deal is just baffling to me! I walked in his room after his morning nap and he had thrown everything out of his bed, including his underpants...how in the world did he get those off? I am not yet writing of the "diaper droppings" he used for wall art, but I am certain I will be in the near future. I have realized that even though I am the same parent, my kiddos are not the same!!! And each of their differences I love and treasure!

A Spooky Fun Time

We had a great time getting the kiddos ready for trick-or-treating Friday night. Emma went as Jasmine from Aladdin, and Jameson went as a "little stinker," which fits his personality to a tee. After visit great grandparents and great aunts and uncles, we went out for some trick-or-treating fun! This was the first year Emma was really pumped to pound the pavement. She was not intimidated or scared at ALL!
Getting Emma ready for the big night!
Trying to get the perfect pose is next to impossible...

Looking a bit dazed and confused!

There's that "stinker's" smile!

She has no problem posing

Jasmine and our neighbor from Star Wars

This is what I mean about Emma not being scared, she just pranced up to this man with a big scary mask on, and got her a piece of candy. Star Wars man, not so much.
