Oh no... It's started. Jax woke up and came into our room and when we told him he needed to go back to bed, he said he couldn't because there's a monster in his room.
He requested a sandwich for dinner. He even told us we were driving the wrong way to get it... Which we were. I'm not sure how he knew that.
Jaxon started talking about something while we are driving in the car and I go to reply back to him and he stops me by saying, " No, I talk to myself".
I heard Jaxon in the other room yell, "No! Don't eat baby Jesus!" I guess he was playing with his kids nativity scene and Wolfy our kitten wanted to play too.
Jax got to see Santa and he wasn't scared at all. He was a little shy at first and we had to coax him in but once he sat on Santa's lap, he was very talkative. He instantly told him that he wanted the Max D monster truck and then Santa asked him about his baby sister. It was so cute watching him talk to Santa.
We all went over to my friend Liv's house to decorate gingerbread houses. We had the Dads put the houses together and I put the frosting on to make it easier for Jax to pick his candy and place it where he wanted it to go. He was so focused on where he wanted everything to be placed.
