President Barack Obama

Yeah!!! You can't help, but get emotional when you think we have our first African American President. We support Barack Obama and are excited to have him as our President!

Uncle Carter comes to visit!

We love Carter, we consider him our Brother! We miss him and hope he comes back soon! We were also pleasantly surprised with Gabby's coming into town too! It was so fun to hang out all together.

Christmas Events!

As you can tell we have been busy, sorry for the lack of posts. Jackson was presently surprised on Christmas morning to see presents under the tree.

We had so much fun hanging out with Bob & Elaine's family! We went sledding right by their house. It was Jackson's first time. Jackson didn't like going down the hills by himself, but he loved going with Jaron! Jackson and Jaron are best buds, it's super cool.

This was cute little Jax's first Christmas.

Josh and I made our very first Apple pie from scratch! We of course got the recipe from the Food Nanny! It is now a tradition!

Jackson licked every cookie to make sure it passed the taste quality test!

We picked up the cutest Christmas Tree this year. We were lucky to have a Christmas Tree Lot close by our house. So we walked to the lot, ran around looking at the trees and then found the perfect one. Josh then carried the tree all the way back to our house. It was a little over a half mile!

What my little boy is thankful for...

Tonight Jackson said the cutest prayer. He thanked Heavenly Father for:
mommy & daddy
ah-ah (monkey)
push the lights

The other day he thanked Heavenly Father for:
having fun with Mommy (which you can only imagine made my heart melt)
beautiful day
Ses-us (Jesus)
mickey mouse
jump the bed

One of the amazing things is Jackson always hears us pray and when we do we give thanks for what we have and ask for several other things. Whenever Jackson prays, it is always a prayer of pure gratitude. It is so neat to see what Jackson is grateful for and that his whole prayer is giving thanks to Heavenly Father.
