Here is our first picture of Christmas!! Yesterday Jackson got to sit on Santa's lap. He did much better than last year. No crying, but Mikelle had to hold the candy cane in front of him to get him to look up and smile. It was too funny. You can see him reaching for it, but at least it's still a cute picture!!

Last week Kendra and Mikelle took Jackson and Tessa to the Arizona Museum for Youth. They had lots of fun. Tessa liked to eat the plastic food, and Jackson liked to go down the slide backwards on his tummy. They have so many fun things for the kids to do, and it's all mostly educational!! Plus, it's great when you can get in for free with passes from the library! Too bad it's so far away in Mesa, but so worth the drive if you have little ones.

And lastly, it was Jackson's first time on a real bike. Bobby's mom had a child seat on her bike, and Jackson loved it. He didn't even fight the helmet, and he hates anything on his head.

And of course the first things Jackson found were the toys with wheels on them. It's great that kids are so entertained by the little things. He loved an airplane that made noise, and he carried it around like a suitcase. He also found the toy cars, and the car he could sit in and push. He of course was so mad when it was time to get out of it. He also liked the mini ATV. Really, we don't think he wanted to come home to his boring toys.

We didn't get to see Bobby's sisters or Jackson's other cousins, but we did get to see Uncle Billy, and after about 2 minutes, he and Jackson were great friends. It was fun to see how fast he knew family. Bobby's cousin Jo Lynn was also there. It was good to meet her and of course Jackson loved having one more person to tell him how cute he is! While we were there one night, Bobby's mom and Jo Lynn were rear-ended, but they were okay. His mom had a slight concussion and Jo Lynn sprained her neck and back. They were sore, but didn't have to stay in the hospital for more than a few hours.

Finally, more pictures from San Antonio. The trip was long, almost 15 hours, but portable DVD players and food helped! We discovered that Jackson loves Push-Ups. Not that they are ideal in the car, but they kept him busy, and he got really mad when we "took" his Push-Up to push it up so he could eat more of it. He is so funny!

We were able to go to San Antonio to visit Bobby's mom and step-dad. It was a fun trip, and we'll post more pictures, but Bobby's mom got us family pictures. We had fun, but Jackson wasn't too sure he wanted anything to do with it. Luckily the photographer was awesome and got good shots of almost all the poses.
