And what would you like for Christmas this year...?

This was Jackson's first time on Santa's lap and he was a Champ! No hesitation, just excited for it to be his turn to sit on Santa's lap. When Santa asked Jackson what he wanted for Christmas this year he replied, "Puzzles!" He and Santa chatted for a bit and then Jackson hopped off his lap. We weren't sure what to expect from him going into this so it was great (and quite the relief) to see how well he did. Yay Jackson!

Posing for the Camera: Dec 2009

Believe it or not, Jackson did these poses without any coaching. He layed down in front of the tree and posed like he did this for a living. It was hilarious to watch. He's such a natural!

The Goat Whisperer

He was basically one with the goats. Or maybe the goats were so responsive because he was feeding them corn kernels. Either way, he kept yelling, "They love it! They love the corn!". This was at a little petting farm that we have a ways west of us. They have goats, cows, a pot belly pig, ducks, and kittens. Jackson thought the kittens were pretty cool since they were so friendly. He chilled with them for a while on the front step.
We went back to this petting farm a couple of times and will return in the spring when they re-open.

Chilling with his new kitty friends

Mimi assisting Jackson in feeding the goats. Mimi felt bad for the baby goats and tried to have Jackson feed them only.

He was pretty darn popular when he had the corn in his hand

Halloween 2009 - Go Diego Go!

Jackson's first time out Trick or Treating was a success! He was amazed that you could run from door to door, just say "trick or treat" and someone would drop candy in your pumpkin bucket. It was hilarious to see his face! He did a great job and said "thank you" after each time he received candy.
He was Diego from "Go Diego Go!" and his little girlfriend, Abby was Dora from "Dora the Explorer". They were so excited to see each other all dressed up in their favorite characters. Such a treat to see them together!

Apple Orchard Playdate - Sept 2009

We had a playdate at Minnetonka Orchards in Minnetrista this past Friday. Jackson has a few ladies he hangs around with (he's quite popular). He loves the goats, pigs, turkeys and corn maze. He found the one puddle and splashed around for quite some time. The kid loves to get dirty!

Fireworks with Papa!

Jackson's favorite thing is watching and participating in the fireworks at Papa and Mimi's house. He takes after his Daddy when it comes to fireworks - the bigger, the better!
Jackson likes to pick out which firework Papa will light and just can't wait for the next one to come!

Big man!

Our little boy is growing into his own little man. He is getting so big, he is now 37" inches tall and weighs around 30lbs. We go to the park after work a couple days a week for some bonding time and so he can unwind and stretch his little legs. He has been working a lot lately on his letters and numbers. He is repeating pretty much everything that is being said around him so really have to watch what I am saying around him. I have been working with him at nights to try and get him to use his little Elmo toilet. I think soon we will have some action and that will make Daddy really happy:0)

Every day it is something new and exciting! I love him the way he is right now and don't ever want him to grow up. He is my pride and joy and I Love him so much!

We spent this last weekend at G-Ma and G-Pa's house and he got to see most of his cousins and had a blast playing in the dirt pile at Auntie Carrie's house and playing in the pool. Let's just say that he was exhausted and can't wait to see his cousins again for playtime.

Sorry it has been along time since the last posting...just finding the time now to keep this updated as often as possible. Pics to come soon.

Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!

We took Jackson to the Minnesota Zoo today; it's his second trip this summer. He just loves the monkeys, fish, dolphins and bears. We went and saw a bird show while there and he saw his very first Bald Eagle. Quite a big sight for such a little guy. We discovered the huge sandbox they have for the wee little ones and the water fountain that the Zoo has for the little ones to run around and cool off in. He LOVED that!

Labor Day Grilling with Mimi & Papa

Mimi & Papa hosted us for some turkey burger and corn on the cob (or mac & cheese if you were under the age of 2) this weekend. Jackson showed Mimi & Papa how well he plays the bones and Mimi taught Jackson how to properly manuver a grocery cart. This will come in handy once he turns 16 and Mama makes Jackson do all the grocery shopping (oh the joys of motherhood).
