Family Day!

Jackson finally got to meet cousins Logan and Alyssa -- They were so cute together - they played all afternoon and just loved being together. Here are a few quick shots of everyone playing..

We had a great day - Its a bit different celebrating Christmas surrounded by Palm Trees instead of Pine Trees but we were with wonderful company and thats what made it Christmas! :)

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Hugs and love to all of you...


Logan and Alyssa meet Jackson for the first time!!

a few random pictures for my bloggin' friends!

things have been crazy between holiday shopping, finishing up the last of client orders and trying to get ready for our trip to florida!...

in the midst of it all I've been really trying to make an effort to capture the moments in my own family lately...

just for fun here are a few that I took over the last day or so...

yesterday at dinner... Praying (VERY DIRTY!!!) hands...

Remember my favorite neighbors.... i might like them a TINY bit less after this 'GIFT' they let Jackson borrow.... Santa. Cute right? no. NOT REALLY. It plays 'Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree'..... and Santa shakes his hips dancing back and forth... it plays ON REPEAT. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. DID I MENTION IT PLAYS ON REPEAT? unless you unplug it of course. which we do. until jackson realizes its NOT playing. he then brings Santa over to you until you plug it back in. The boy could be playing clear across the room and not want anything to do with Santa singing and dancing but as SOON as you turn it off -- oh it starts RIGHT back up again.... D and Paul.. we love you but you might be getting a Secret Santa back PRETTY SOON! haha (just kidding!! its actually kind of cute.. and jackson does love it so we love it too... i swear.) :)

I give you ONE guess to Remember our beautiful REAL awesome christmas tree Jackson picked out... do you see it? yes, its in there, it just took on a new form of Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree. Between Jackson RAMMING his Pooh Bear airplane into the tree - throwing puzzle pieces as if he wanted them to hang on as ornaments - putting his head against it because he thinks its hysterical??? (weirdo!) -- our beautiful little tree has turned into this....................poor thing!

Play-dough Piggies!! I know I'll look back at this one day and say 'remember when...' we've been playing playdough lately but jackson really doesnt like it??? what kid doesnt like playdough? that and finger paint?

Spent the morning baking some christmas gifts for friends....


mmmm... middle still....


and after a busy day........saying our prayers before bed...

hope you're enjoying the holidays with your loved ones!!!

playing in the snow take two!

so we headed out to play in the snow WITH mittens that stayed on and some sunlight! (as always - click on the image to make it larger!)

as you can tell - we sure got a decent amount of snow -- especially when its compared to a little almost 19 month old little boy :)

check it out for yourself...

watching the plow early in the morning clear some of the snow from our parking lot!

can't take his eyes off it!

what kind of face do you get when the plow goes away? (or just around the building?!)............

Oh don't worry - he came back! :)

after watching the plow we headed to our weekly "Little Gym" class... Not sure what was in Jacksons breakfast but he was a MADMAN there today! Running around crazy -- although I guess thats the best place to burn that energy right! hehe..

the cutest piggies ever on the balance beam!

crackin' up at the little gym!

'mom -- they stopped blowing bubbles.' :(

so after "The Little Gym" - lunch and a short nap .. we decided to venture out! :).....

our little snowman! hehe...

hmm not falling from the sky anymore??...

"this is FUN????????????? liars."

check out how deep it is - its up to his little knees.... which made walking difficult ;) poor little bear... hehe...

"Dad, what is a snowball???"

hahahah - snowballs are funny!! 'you got me dad!'

'TWO elmo mittens?!?!? COOL" -- I wish you could hear him says 'COOL'.. its a riot!!

haha i LIKE snowballs!!

so there ya go!

check back tomorrow for more updates!!

Off to get Rick some medicine as he is starting to get a yucky cold :( got any good sinus/cold remedy suggestions?! Send 'em over!!
