Jimmy - Our Elf on the Shelf

After Jaxson's bath tonight, we heard something at our front door! Come to find out, someone had left a present for Jaxson! It was an "Elf on the Shelf"!!

We carefully opened the box and discovered our own personal elf. We then read the elf's personal story of how he had been sent to watch over us. It is the elf's job to fly back to the North Pole every night and report to Santa exactly how we have been behaving. But, the elf will always be back before the next morning and will be hiding somewhere in the house so that he can observe us. There is one very important rule, however. We can never touch the elf. Touching the elf will strip him of his magic flying powers and then he can't talk to Santa to tell him what presents we want for Christmas.

We were also instructed that the elf needed a name immediately. After a little deliberation, we all settled on the name "Jimmy."

I can't wait to wake up in the morning so that Jaxson and I can see where Jimmy will be waiting for us at...'Tis the Season!

Halloween Pics

We had a great Halloween evening. Some neighbors of ours hosted a small street party for their family and friends. We took Jaxson down to play with the kids and join the group for trick-or-treating. Little Jaxson Lane did a fantastic job! And, best of all, he really had great manners..."please" and "thank you" at each and every house he went to!

Baby Boy Corley Ultrasound Pics


We had ultrasound pics taken today (11/3/10) and the doctor confirmed that we have another little man on the way to join our family! Needless to say, we are very excited and blessed! Below are some pictures (no worries, I spared him the future agony of having his manhood displayed...no private part pictures included! LOL!)

Carving a Pumpkin

Jaxson helped me carve his first pumpkin today. Check out the video below!

He even decorated his very own "Jaxson size" pumpkin!

It's coming together!

Pumpkin Patch - 10-24-10

We took Jaxson to a local church today that hosts a yearly "pumpkin patch" for the community. You can go there and pick out your pumpkins and take pictures of your kids...it's really a neat little thing to do. Enjoy the pics!
