Another Post of Jackson-isms

Jackson has been KILLING me lately. Nothing he says is "right" but I wouldn't have it any other way. Here are 2 funnies that he has said this weekend...

His last soccer game was Thursday night and geez Louise was it cold. Jackson, bless his heart, has been cursed with my sensitive skin. A one hour game in the cold temps and he came home with chapped skin. (He will keep this until about March just like me when I was a little girl.) His little cheeks and around his mouth was SO red. When we walked in the door, the heat from the house hit his face and must have started burning...
Jackson: (starting to whimper) "Mommy my face is hurting."
Mommy: "Let me see. Oh, your skin is chapped."
Jackson: "I need my Auto Zone."
Mommy: "You what?"
Jackson: "It's in my bathroom, I'll be right back."
While he was gone, Jason and I were wracking our brain to figure out what Auto Zone was. He comes back with a tube of...Cortisone. We rubbed on a little Cortisone and Aquaphor and all was right with the world.

Last night, we went and ate at Jason's parents house. One of our sides was creamed corn. (One of my favorite foods!) Jackson kept complaining that he didn't like his corn. His cousin Reed needed him to know that it wasn't just corn...
Jackson: "I don't want to eat my corn...It's nasty."
Mommy: "No, it's good eat it up."
Reed: "Jackson it's not corn. It's corn on the cob."
Jackson: "Uh-uh it's not corn on the cob, Reed. It's corn on the plate!"

Oh this boy kills me!

I WANT that!

Yesterday, driving home in the way cold and rainy weather, got me thinking to Christmas. I wanted to go straight home, put on my warm comfy pants, turn on some Christmas music and drink some hot chocolate. (I had to keep reminding myself that it was October and not December.)

With all my thoughts going to Christmas (and my blooming addiction to Pinterest), let me share with you want is on my wish list this year....
First, I want this rug from Target. I would like the "runner" size for my Kitchen....thanks.

Second, I would love this outfit...

...or this one! Something about the gray and turquoise really does it for me....also, Jason would probably appreciate seeing me in "real clothes" I tend to wear running shorts and "comfy pants" WAY too much.
Finally, I want this girl's hair. =)

So there you have it...my Christmas list for 2011. Feel free to get started-thats why I am giving it to early. Haha!

Weekend Wrap-Up

What a fun weekend we had. It all started Thursday with Jackson's soccer game.
"Too Cool for School" Hudson made his appearance. 
Jackson and his friend Logan were paying more attention to something in the grass than the game that was going on. Wonder what they were looking at?...
A nasty cricket. Gag! Once I looked over and Jackson was holding the cricket and Logan was squirting it with water. I guess they thought he needed a drink. (I'm pretty sure the poor cricket was drowned).

Friday, we had "Family Date Night". We got take-out and watched "Thor". Oh my word, have you seen that movie? It was SO good. It also doesn't hurt that Chris Helmsworth is SUPER attractive! 
Saturday morning, I hit the streets before anyone was awake. (I need to work on my self-picture taking. I have along way to go before I am as good as Skinny Runner.) I did 6.3 miles. I am getting closer every week to my goal of 13.1!
That afternoon we went to our cousin William's birthday party. All the kids painted and decorated pumpkins.
Jackson working hard on his painting.
The finished product. They look so cute on my mantel if I do say so myself.

Sunday was church, lunch, and wallpaper removal. (Stay tuned to a big room change!) Can we somehow get a weekend to recooperate from the weekend?
