Family Fair

Jaxon had a Family Fair at school.
His assignment was to learn about his family history and the traditions of his ancestors.
At the beginning I really felt like this was more Mom homework then Jaxon homework, but in the end I think that it was fun for Jaxon to learn a little about the countries that his ancestors came from.
They were able to take in treats from and set up displays in their classroom and then they were able to talk about their familes.

Dad's Helper

Colby went out to shovel snow and Jaxon was so excited to tag along and help.
Whether he was much help or not, he sure is a cute willing helper.

Santa Come Back

Because all I want for Christmas are my two front teeth and I can't wait 12 more months!
I wish I had taken a before picture...
One of Jax's front teeth has been wiggly forever and had started to migrate into his other front tooth and create a large gap, so we told him Monday night that if he didn't have it out on his own by Friday we were going to help him with it. (I know we're mean, but it was getting ridiculous!)
So of course once we get him in bed he starts wiggling it and decides it's coming out tonight.
So, he came down to our bathroom and wiggled and wiggled, but the dang tooth would come out - but much to all of our shock and amazement the one next to it did.
Here he is, one tooth down, one to go.

Notice his watery eyes?  Makes me sad and proud all at the same time.
After he got out the first one you'd think the second would be easier, but he was a little scared from the blood and such and so Dad and I offered to help with the second, which really looked like Colby trying to grab it and then jaxon ripping his head back because he didn't want him to and that's all it took.
POP!  Out came the second tooth!
Now we have a Toothless Joe Jaxon.

Two teeth equals dollars in your pocket little man.
I was so proud of him.  He was scared, but he did it anyway.
Way to go Buddy!

Cake Fav.'s of 2011

By far the most popular cakes of 2011 were Angry Birds related.
I love how trends even find there way into food.

These little birds (and pigs) are on everyone's phone.
At Christmas I was amazed at all the Angry Bird stuff - pillows, shirts, pjs.

The next two cakes were also quite popular, but still a distant 3rd and 4th to the Angry Birds.

More Coming Soon

I plan on having the Christmas updates up this week... check back soon.


Today while driving over to my parent's house for dinner, Kyah said to Jaxon:

K:  Do you know how much I love you?
J:   10,000,550 never ending?
K:  Yup!
J:   Me too.

Wanting to cry because of their sweetness I glanced back and they were holding hands.

I told them how much I love those moments and how sweet I thought they were and then they proceeded to play the stack and slap game with their hands.... Yup, moment gone.
