Here is a recent picture of little Jackson doing what he does best at football games. He was so into the game.....clapping along with the band, calling the hogs. He loves football and the Razorbacks. Hmmm, wonder where he gets that from?
Today is my birthday! My 29th...and I've decided that I'm staying here so next year I'll be skipping my birthday, thank you very much! That is allowable, isn't it? =)
Next year is going to be SO hard on me cause I really, REALLY don't want to be 30..UGH. Just the sound of it. 30. It sounds so, so, boring.
Doing a bunch of nothing today. Went to work this morning and took off a little early. Cleaning up around the house, doing some laundry. Maybe go out to get a bite to eat tonight so I wont have to dirty up the kitchen again.
WOW...It's been about 6 months or so since I've blogged. Bad, horrible, I know. Things have been way more than hectic lately. Let's see...
Jackson went to his very first Razorback football game a couple weeks ago. We scored 50 yard line, first row seats and he LOVED it! He clapped with the band, called the hogs and all that good stuff. That little boy sure is growing. He does something new every single day, I swear.
Like the other night, we went to the AR-OK fair, and he saw all the animals and so now we'll ask him how the dog goes, or how the pig goes, and he does the sound. So cute. I didn't even know he paid that much attention. He cracks me up some days. Like last night, he tried to put on his daddy's shoes, but had to do so ON TOP of the coffee table. He is fearless. Anyone want to bet as to how soon we'll be going to the ER for a broken bone?
Work has been very busy lately. We had a fellow archeolgist die unexpectantly back in May and I've been covering his stuff too until a replacement can come in. I've been on several trips for work. The most recent being to Washington D.C. I love that town. Just to visit though...not to work or live for very long at a time.Richard was able to get off work and go with me on that trip, so we had fun.
Hmmm, what else is new? Richard has an interview today for a new job. If he gets it, we'll be moving to around the Ozark area somewhere. Not too far away really.
That's it for now. I'll try to do better with the entries and I really need to add some new pictures too, huh?
My husband of 7 years, the father of our two boys and the love of my life! He's a funny guy who can certainly make me laugh, has a wealth of Razorback knowledge, and is very competitive. Hmmm, wonder where Jackson gets it from?
This is our 6 year old boy, Jackson. Aka..the great tormenter. He's a good boy most of the time...very competitive, inquisitive, and can be a bit lazy from time to time. He's a GREAT big brother and an all around good little boy. He makes us smile!
This is our 2 year old son, Ethan, who was diagnoised with a multicystic kidney while in the womb. He was given a 25% chance of developing cysts in both kidneys, which would have been lethal for him. It turns out, Ethan has a duplicate collecting system (2 ureters instead of one on his left side) PLUS an ureterocele inside his bladder. He's had 1 surgery and goes every once in awhile for tests and/or clinic appointments. He's been through a lot in his short life but we're just proud he's here with us!
A 4 year old mind....
August 12, 2009--So, yesterday Jackson and I were down getting the trash can at the driveway and Jackson stopped by the pond and said, "Shhh...Mom! I think there are sheep in the pond!" Of course, these were only frogs croaking but it DID actually sound a lot like sheep!
September 18, 2009--Did you know that Daddy has a voice like this? "RRRAAAHHH!" and mama has a voice like this? "RRRaaahhh!" and baby has a voice like this? "rrraaahhh!" (spoken in Goldielocks and the 3 bears fashion.)
November 14, 2009--Jackson: Mom, why do your breasts have milk in them? Me: Because that's they way God made them and it's the best food for Baby Ethan. Jackson: It sure would have been cool if God would have put apple juice in them instead!
