We have had some pretty cold days and nights here that remind me much more of winter than fall! Instead of raking up a leaf pile with just a cozy sweater, we had to get full on winter gear! The kids still loved it anways!! We raked up some big piles and they jumped in them, slid down into them, and just threw them at each other. Jackson was a big helper and pretty much built the pile all by himself.
Getting ready to throw a monster pile of leaves at Beckett who quickly figured out what was happening and took off!
Jackson was student of the week! Each child at his school is student of the week and they take home this fish. They are supposed to take a photo of them with the fish, fill out a sheet that tells facts about him like where he was born, birthdate, favorite color etc, and some pictures of his family to present to class. Jackson was so excited and the first thing he said was he wanted to take a picture hanging from the basketball hoop, so that is what we did. Each child in the class then draws a picture of Jackson and writes why he is special. It is compiled in a book and he gets to keep it. I loved reading what they other kids said about him. Some favorites were that Jackson is special because he has pretty hair, he is always nice to me, he has a house, and he likes to play with me. Kindergartners are so stinkin cute!! I will certainly treasure this sweet book forever!!
He has gotten pretty good at hitting it off the tee. Now, where he is supposed to run after he hits it, is another story!
We have been battling some colds in our house the last few weeks, so this is what our bed has looked like. I am not sure where Greg and I are supposed to fit!
Since Greg and I were not getting the best sleep with 2 additions, we decided to see how the boys could do sleeping together. Beckett certainly loves it! He piles a bunch of toys in his bed and you can hear him making playing noises for about 30 minutes. Luckily, Jackson falls asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow and sleeps like a rock because Beckett's noises do not seem to phase him at all!
Since I have been spending my days off going to the eye doctor, I decided to take advantage of the babysitter and surprise Jackson for lunch! He was so excited. It was so cute how all the kids came up to me and yellod, "Hi Jackson's mom!" I was so impressed with how well behaved they were!
Jackson had a playdate on Saturday and spent a special day behind the scenes at the zoo feeding elephants, so Beckett had mommy and daddy all to himself! We did some shopping and topped it off with a Ghirardelli sundae. It doesn't get much better than that!
Church bow ties! Jackson really didn't like wearing the flower bow tie I bought him, so this time I bought them Marlin ones.
Happy 39th birthday to the best husband and daddy anyone could every ask for! We had a birthday celebration with friends the weekend before his birthday and then had the family over for pizza and cake.
We love you more than you will ever know and can't wait until next year when we get to celebrate the big 40!!!
Finishing off the day with a slushie! Jackson had the best time and his buddy Jack was so sweet to buy him his favorite animal...the lion. For some reason we are on a lion kick right now. He even asked me if he could have a lion cake for his birthday!
