Abby has been trying to teach Jaxon to dance. He sits on the floor and bounces up and down to music. Jaxon claps his hands, and turns around. We can't tell whether Abby is the stronger personality or Jaxon. We will see.

Abby loves to dance, and it is so funny to see all the dances she picks up from movies, tv, and whatever else. One day she tells me she will be a Jazz dancer since ballet is not fun; they are way to STRICT. She is free spirited and likes an adventure. Enjoy the show, we did.

So Jaxon really really loves ice cream. Especially now that it is getting warm outside, and he is getting all of the rest of his teeth. He now has 2 (one year molars)on top, and most of the rest of his teeth on top and bottom. We are still waiting for the 2 bottom molars to come in, and I am guessing that they will come soon. Jaxon stands all the time now, and will walk with his pooh train. We are hoping one day soon, he will trust himself let go and walk. We will let everyone know.

Jaxon eating ice cream!!! Yum Yum!

Why is it somedays just feel cloudy and dark? You feel like there isn't a light at the end of the tunnel, and that you can't take anything more. AND THEN: A RAINBOW. God does send us the things we need, not always quickly and not always when we want them, but they will come. Have faith and you will find the silver lining, the rainbow at the end of a raining day, and the light at the end of a dark tunnel.


We had so much fun at the annual Macey's Carnival. Abby loves bounce house, and running around being a kid. They have games you can play, prizes you can win, cheap yummy food, Moose Bars (popsicles) for the kids, balloons for the kids, and 10 cent hot dogs. It is so much fun to have a day that we can go together as a family and have fun at a very expensive price. Its good to be frugal, even when you have plenty of money to spend. Below are some of the things we did.

Our Friend Seanna works at Macey's in the Deli. We love her oh so much. She is the one who does all the face painting. She worked a few summer's at Disneyland and is very good at her job painting faces. But more than that we love her for her kindness and good friendship with Abby.

So this is a huge horse. Jaxon, YES JAXON, won this horse all by himself. It was a spinning wheel, and he grabbed on it and made it go in circles. And all of the sudden it landed on THE PONY. So many people were surprized that he could win it himself, and the funny thing is that the head is about as big as he is. :)

Jaxon and his horse. :)

Abby and the horse. So you can see that the horse is still bigger than even Abby. It is so fun to ride, and Abby says mom I don't have to pick up poop or even feed it. Ah the invention of the stuffed animal.

Just a quick update today. Cut Jaxon's hair because it was becoming unrulely. Who would guess? Abby got her first hair cut when she was 18 months, and Jaxon is only 10 1/2 months. Needless to say, he doesn't like it at all. I don't know how hair-cutters put up with kids and cutting hair. But in the end I am so glad. We cut about 2 inches off, and now he looks like a REAL BOY!!! Still able to spike it, and have it short. Another lesson learned, another thing accomplished. YES!!!

Abby our 4 year old. Oh we love that the sun has come out again. It makes it easier to get through the day, and it is so fun to play in the sun.

We love to draw with chalk, although we mostly were just trying to combine the colors and make color. It was fun.

This is the family joke and it is so funny. It is a picture of someone tanning in a salon, and they get burned. And there is also ice cream in the picture too. Someday you will have to ask me what that means, and I will explain it to you.

Jaxon loves the camera. He is getting to be a really big boy. He doesn't have all his bottom teeth yet, but he is getting a one year molar. Crazy kid. He will stand in the middle of the room, and walk along all the furniture in the room. Can't wait till he just takes the leap and let's go and WALKS.

What a cutie pie. He loves the camera, and loves life too.
Abby turns 4!!!
This year Abby had a Chuck E Cheese birthday party, it was fun but challenging for Daddy. I got the flu late Friday night after finishing the cake and cleaning the house. Great timing, I didn't want to miss it but would never have cancelled it. Thanks to all who helped Bradly with the party. I can hardly believe that she is already 4.

Amelia and Abby playing the bee game.

Abby getting her tickets, oh how exciting life is.

Abby opens present from her Aunt Stacie and Cousins. This is the greatest gift ever. She has fallen in love with this cutting food present. She loves to help me in the kitchen, and this is a much safer way to do it.

Abby was given some books too. I think we have read these books a million times so far.

Abby and her microphone. She loves disney songs so this was a big hit.

Abby and Lilly Kelson dancing with Chuck E Cheese.

Abby was given a crown and a special medal for her birthday. What a great treat!!

So I made the cake Friday night so it would be fresh and nice for the party. I got the flu that night so Bradly finished the top with the cones. It was a great cake with homemade strawberry jam as the filling.
