Videos are Back!!!

A couple of months ago our desktop computer crashed. Jason calls me his "tech rep", but it was beyond my capabilities. My dad reformatted everything, but it still acted "funny". Well, last Friday my brother spent many hours reformatting, again, and then reloading all of our old software. Hallelujah!! Using his words, "It runs better than when you bought it". He was right. Finally, I have access to my video burning software.

So, I thought I'd share a couple...

Thanksgiving 2008

Jason, Jack and I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. We especially miss LeeLee, Big J, and Aunt Jennifer. We hope that you enjoyed spending time with family in Enterprise.

Here are a few pictures from our day. We ate our Thanksgiving meal at night because Uncle David was driving from North Carolina, today. We have really enjoyed getting to spend time with Jack's cousin, Will.

Happy Thanksgivin

I Love Vacation!

Jack and I have been in HSV, since Sunday. We brought my grandmother and it has been wonderful having 3 full time babysitters. My 80 year old grandmother is wearing him out!

My parents always choose a child to give Christmas to through their Sunday School Class. Jack helped Grandad put together a tricycle as a gift for a little boy in need. It was too big for him, though. He fell off and hit his head on the hardwoods. Ouch!

Thanks, Uncle David! Jack can finally wear his sweatshirt.

Time for Change

Jack finally received his first official haircut. I've been cutting it since he was 5 months old, but it was time for some thinning out. He looks so different and grown up.

Time Flies

Life has been so hectic, lately, that I don't even feel bad that I haven't posted in so long. Jack had yet another double ear infection last week. Thank goodness my parents were already in town and offered to stay. I only have a certain number of sick days and Jack is using them up fast. Anyway, since they were going to be here, we talked them into tiling the bathroom floor, installing the vanity, and do some plumbing. (Obviously, we helped when we could, but most of the time we were at work)

Anyway, Jack has become the ultimate copycat. He remembers everything he sees and will copy it as soon as he gets a chance. I promise that every following picture was not staged. I caught him doing each of these things on his own...


Installing hardware

(He found some pliers, went into the bathroom, opened the doors, and started doing this)

More Plumbing
(Fortunately, his plumbing didn't involve 3 trips to Lowes like my dad)

(He would walk into the kitchen, tap the top of the paint can, then go back into the bathroom and pretend paint the walls)

He even cleans!!

Our wonderful new vanity

On another note... Jason has been running the household lately. I had a doctor's appointment Monday and then went to SipsnStrokes with some friends. Then, on Tuesday I had a consultation with an Endodontist, after school. Well, I thought it was just a consultation until he started numbing me up. I said, "what are you doing?". Apparently, I misunderstood the dentist and the appointment was to have a root canal. So, we got a good laugh out of it and I told him to go ahead. So, I was on pain pills yesterday evening and worthless. I am so ready for Thanksgiving Break.

Our attempts to take a birthday pic for LeeLee

Jack has yet another cold and so he has been quite cranky. He hasn't been to daycare since Monday. Fortunately, my parents have been in town and have been able to babysit. Here are some attempts at getting a picture for LeeLee...

The next picture is a joke. We decided it was the best we could do...

Happy Birthday, LeeLee!

We want to wish LeeLee a very happy 60th B'day. Hopefully, we'll have you a picture posted later this evening. It might be a little later because we are attending a baby shower/dinner after work.

Jason, Leesa, and Jack

A True Fan

Picture this...

We are sitting in our basement watching 3 TVs with the Auburn game on the radio. I turnaround and this is what I see....

Definitely a No Picture Post

I took Jack all the way to Concord with me this morning because today was "pictures with Santa". Even though we don't have a Christmas outfit, I dressed him nicely and took him to meet Santa. Well, there would be no pictures of Jack with Santa. After watching the cutest little boy that was 2 weeks older than Jack sit in Santa's lap and look at him curiously, Jack proceeded to cry when we were within a foot of him. I put him in Santa's lap and walked back and he screamed, cried, and reached for me.

Great News!

Well, after a long 3 months in the hospital, Jack's cousin, Will, is home at last. We are so happy for them. They have been in our thoughts and prayers constantly.

Busy Weekend

Halloween was fun. All of the kids loaded up in wagons and headed out to trick-or-treat. Jason, Jack and I stayed back at the house and hung out with Jeannie. She is 31 weeks pregnant and put on "limited activity", so she handed out candy. Jack played in the next door neighbors fog machine. We had a good time and had Jack tucked into bed no later than 8pm.

Apparently, Jack loves my Whip Cream Pie...
