Cousin Time

Trenton and Kira had spring break the last two weeks, and both got to spend some time with us at Grandma and Grandpa's house. They were such good helpers with Jackson and Brooklyn, and Jackson loved the extra playmates. He keeps asking to see Kira or Trenton and where is Tessa? He loves his cousins, so it was great for him to have more time with them.

Day Out With Thomas!!

For Jackson's birthday we got him tickets to see Thomas in Globe. Grandma kept Brooklyn, so it  was just the three of us. We had such a good time. We got to ride Thomas, play with trains, jump on bounce houses and make noodle necklaces!

Brooklyn turned 4 months the second of March, so here are a few pictures of her! She was 16 lbs. 15 3/4 oz., 97% and 26 3/4 inches, 100% at her 4 month check up. She is such a chunk, but at least she is proportioned! She is such a good baby and a great addition to our family. Sleeps all night and is mostly happy during the day. She travels well and loves her older brother.

Jackon loves being in Prescott with Papa and Grandma, even though he misses his daddy. Papa is a good sport and takes Jackson outside a lot. One day they walked down to the mailbox to get the mail and put it in Jackson's wagon. He was so proud of himself. He is such a good helper. He always wants to help do dishes, put laundry away or bring in groceries. It is so cute and we can only hope it keeps up!

Aunt Suzy gave us a great idea about making snowmen inside, so last time it snowed in Prescott, we had to try it. Jackson loved it! We had to work super fast, but it was perfect for his attention span, and later when he wanted to do it again, we were happy to oblige.

A random picture, but we love it. We walked along the Peavine Trail in Prescott one Saturday, and Jackson just loved every minute of it. We saw ducks and walked on bridges and slid down dirt hills, or just Jackson did that last one! The weather was great, a nice family outing.
Here is our chunky monkey at 3 months. She is growing way too fast. She is such an easy baby though. She loves to smile and is giggling more and more.
Really Mikelle just can't help but dress her up. Can you blame her though? Look how cute she is!!
Jackson just loves his sister. Here she has "tackled" him, and he thinks it's the best thing in the world. He is such a great big brother.
And of course we have to teach them young how to ride horses! Again, Jacskon just can't get enough of "playing" with his sister. He tickles her all the time, and loves when she looks at him and gives him smiles.
Poor Jackson. His biggest problem so far is that he has no hips, and pants don't stay up! I have bought many belts, none seem to fit his tiny waist. Papa fixed the situation though!! I just wasn't thinking outside the box! I was finally able to find something I like, C.belly belts. They will be great when we finally potty train, fingers crossed this summer since we start school in August!
Another great man invention, thanks Unlce Barry and Papa!! What do you do if it snows and you don't have snow boots and want to go out in the snow? Bread bags, perfect!!
Jackson showing off his new spiderman slippers. He hates to wear socks, and it gets cold in Prescoot in the winter, so we were able to find him something he will wear to keep his feet warm! He even called Bobby to tell him he got spiderman slippers. He is so proud of himself and his slippers!
Little sister had to get in on the spiderman action. Poor girl!
