Playing the Guitar

Jaxon and his daddy playing the guitar
Daddy's turn to play! Poor little boy-his momma didn't teach him to share

He got it back! Jaxon makes the funniest faces!

Play Time

Yesterday I watched our two cousins for a little while! It was so fun to have girls around!
We got some of Jaxon's toys out and played and watched "Peter Pan"

I love this picture! Thanks for coming over girls!

Breaking Dawn

I finally finished Breaking Dawn last night! I think it's probably my favorite out of all the "Twilight" series books. Although, it felt like the ending was being dragged out a little bit, I really enjoyed everything else about the book. I do think that Bella is a bit whiney-who wouldn't love two guys fighting over them?! She also was constantly wondering if she wanted to be a vampire-I say Edward should just bite her in her sleep, and get it over with all ready! I have heard people have mixed feelings about Breaking Dawn, and I must say that there are some things I wish were different, but overall it's my favorite! Now that I'm finished, I look forward to going to bed at a decent time, and look forward to hearing what every one else thinks about the book! I hope people enjoyed it as much as I did!

Happy Anniversary

We are excited to say that today is our 2 year anniversary! It's crazy because I feel like I've known Jake forever, but here we are with celebrating only 2 years! I'm so grateful he is my husband! I'm so lucky to have a husband who is my best friend, and that it doesn't matter what we are doing, we always just enjoy each other's company. He got me this pendant of my birthstone-don't mind my red skin-I was laying out all day and got fried!:) I'm so grateful for Jaxon too, I can't imagine my life being any more perfect than it all ready is!

Jaxon loves Jell-O!

This was Jaxon's first time eating Jell-O! He thought it was weird at first, but then he loved it, so I dumped it out on the tray and let him play with it! He would pick it up and just stare at his hand forever (he's so curious!), and then it seemed like every time he tried to put it in is mouth, he'd drop it! These are just a few pics of my messy boy!

Standing Up

Jaxon was being a big boy, and decided he wanted to stand up for a while! First he leaned against his crib, but couldn't quite reach his toy in front, so he scooted his toy more to one side, and finally stood up enough he could grab the front side! But he could only stand for about 2 seconds, so I held his hand so he could stand, but as you can see he didn't want to let his toy go!

Grandpa Grant and Jaxon

We went up north this weekend to spend time with family at a reunion and then we went to see Grandpa Grant at the care center he's been in for a couple months. He finally got to come home on Monday!! I told him he might come home and not recognize his house anymore, because he and my grandma just got some new carpet and their house painted!! He laughed, but I'm sure he wouldn't care what color the house was, he just ready to go home, and stay there!! We are so happy he his home, and that he and grandma are doing great! Grandpa is probably one of the most easy-going guys I've ever met! He's the type of man who would give the shirt off his back for anyone who needed it. I don't think I've ever heard him complain! He is a great example to me and my family, we love you G & G Hofler!

Brooklyn and Jaxon

Brooklyn Loves Her Cousin Jaxon! She is a BIG helper, always bringing Jaxon toys to play with and bottles for him to eat (even if there's no formula in them)! She tries to carry him around too, but she had a little bit of a hard time! Remember what I said about my tongue sticking out (see Brooklyn, maybe it's a genetic thing!) We sure love our Bookie, and miss her lots when we don't get to see her!
