I know I know

I am not going to promise I am going to update soon ANY LONGER :) Its officially a jinx! Things have been going well though :) I guess you can tell because I have not had the time to sit and actually type something longer than an email. Here is a short update though!

I am now instead of teaching Sundays for preschool I am teaching the Kindergarten kids! It is such a joy and it gives them a stable teacher every week and makes sure they learn even more about Jesus. I am still taking care of mom. Also I am taking care of Alexis! Did I mention I am helping a TON at Jackson's new school, Great Valley Academy. It is the charter school here in town that believes that a child should not only learn but they should be in a safe loving and cared for environment in a place where the teachers insist on a Hug hand shake or high-5 before coming or entering. Where the kids skip or walk through the halls and even more better I think Jackson will do AWESOME there. They don't skip over him because he is doing well and they allow him to learn extra or if you have a child that needs the extra help they make sure they don't move on without them. It has been a blessing to many families in the community and I am so grateful. It was a huge deal for us not to send Jackson to a private Christian school. So our job now even more so than before is make sure he has that extra Bible time and leadership. Also I have put myself in the circle of parent volenteer workers so that I know what is also surrounding him. MEANWHILE we/ Jackson goes to church every Sunday, Royal Rangers on Wednesdays and believe it or not we have stepped it up at home too. We want to raise a Christian leader and still keep up with his education all at the same time.

Well... if you have not figured this out yet Jackson is 6 years old now and is in 1st grade he is doing awesome! He is reading, that amazes me... He is not only reading at a high level and is loving it :) He can add, subtract and tell ya anything about science that you could ever want to know. He is amazed by engineering especially reverse engineering as he says if you can take it apart and show him how it works he LOVES it. IF you ask him what he wants to be when he grows up he says... He wants to be a bowling ball salesmen and have an online store on the week days, on Saturdays he would like to be a spy and on Sundays he wants to be the a pastor just like his pastor Pastor Scott. He says "I want to teach people about Jesus." I asked him if he was going to have a wife and he said "Yes and 4 kids. They will see him at night but on the weekends he is going to be busy."

He is bowling now and doing pretty well at it he doesnt hardly touch the bumpers any more yet it doesnt give him a high score. I told him when he is out of Pee-wee league he will be happy because he wont have bumpers any more. He is also starting today going to Taekwondo. It is available through the church that his school campus is on. They not only do the Taekwondo lesson they also a christian teacher that has them have memory verses with their tests. HA HA seeee I told you I would find a way for him to get that extra scripture in there :)

ALSO Jackson and Jeremy both are going to be in Willy Wonka. Our church just started a performing arts program that is offered to everyone in town. Their first production is going to be Willy Wonka and Jackson because you had to be in 3rd grade and up is going to be a squirrel, HEAD SQUIRREL might I add he will actually have more movement other than passing a nut back and forth. Jackson did insist on trying out though and the director said by next year he is going to be the star. She wants him to love theater and thinks 2 hour practices 3 times a week will be a bit much on a 6 year old. He does really well with the oompa loompa movements though. Jeremy is going to be playing Mr Salt if you don't know who that is that is Verrucas father the little girl who wants everything NOW :). Its going to be a great show!

Jeremy has been blessed at Bank of America still and is doing really well there. He enjoys it and also is challenged there. He also enjoys not having to drive every day! He is working every Monday from home and takes the train instead of driving.

OK welp that is my short update. Hope everyone is doing well out there and take care! See ya in about another 6-12 months heheh!

Welcome 2011

I guess we can add Weight Watchers to my many things to do in a week. I am fat and I CAN help it :) So we are back to the grind of things and getting healthy. Well at least I am and the only food entering this house is going to be in there well until I get some wheel power. I sat here for an hour thinking of if I was going to tell the blog world about this or if I was suddenly going to toss is out there after I reached a goal. Well dang it I reached a goal. I walked through the doors of the Weight Watchers and I stood accountable and got my weight NO I am not going to toss that out there but I can tell you I did not gain all 70 back from the last time WOOO HOOO!! So sense life has now became a little normal I can get back on it. OH and another goal for this year is to go back to Disneyland in November and Mom is going to be there so we are all working towards some goals here.

OK some fun stuff now.... Jackson has started pee wee bowling and he is on a team with Nathan called the strikers. I think it is awesome that they came up with their own name and everything! He is doing really well and loves every moment of it. I plan on posting some new photos VERY soon also. New Camera YEEEE. OK world Happy New year even though it took me 21 days to say it!

no excuses

I can come up with a huge amount of exscuses as to why I have not blogged and why I should, yet a feel it would not be a very good one other than I HAVE NO LIFE AND I AM CONSTANTLY BUSY!!... Wait maybe I should say I have too much of a life!

Things have been going insanly crazy around here with the Christmas season zooming towards us like a Mac truck. I am so not ready and the tree is not even up. I do have the Christmas towels up in the bathroom and Jackson is in Christmas like P.J.s. (does that count?) Oh Wait I have a wreath on the door :).

To be honest I have just been slammed packed with life. So lets see Good news my cousin Cheryl had her daughter Alexis. Yet a week before that we lost another amazing lady in out family. Jeremy's grandmother passed away about a week and half before that. So the going going going has been for good reasons not because I have kept myself busy. Family means a lot around here so we always are there for them.

OK an update...
Jackson is doing awesome on Monday he was actually in his very last Cornerstone Preschool/Kindergarten Christmas program. He was a shepherd and had about 5 lines. He did wonderful and we are so proud of him. He has grown about 3 inches sense September and is growing up out of his pants. He has discovered a new love of pretending to be a spy. He even plays on his own with pretending to be a spy constantly talking into something saying he is talking to headquarters. Jackson has also been reading a lot more. He can read a spell a ton of words now it even sometimes shocks me when he suddenly says and spells them out. He LOVES math he loves addition and would sit in the car saying _+_=_ over and he recently has put subtraction in there too!

Jeremy has officially been hired on at Bank of America. Don't ask me his title it is very long and I dont get it. It even has vice president in there WOW huh! Don't worry most of his tech team has VP in there somewhere. He is doing well and is liking the new job and we are LOVING having benefits back again. His recent obsession is 2 things TRON Legacy that is coming out on Friday and the Sing off I know I know 2 completely different sides of the spectrum if you know Jeremy you know it fits him just right!

Mom is doing well. The recently stopped having PT come because she was not progressing to what they thought she should. She has arthritis in her knees really bad so they could not get her any farther. She is stilling the excersizes and is still up and going. We are out of the house at least 5 days a week. Don't worry if I am going she is going to go too :) She has been going to Bible Study on Wednesday night also. She enjoys it and is learning a lot and having fun spending time with the ladies at our church.

I hope you guys out there in the blog world are doing well and I will TRY to blog some more. I just wanted to give an update on our lives Take Care All

Busy Life!!! Cheryl's Wedding Day!

I am sitting here exhausted!! Really the days have been flying by like mad and if you were to look at my calendar you would see that I have no time but to run around like a crazy insane person. Things are booked back to back and if you are one of my facebook friend you would see the list I have to accomplish each day.

I have so much to blog that I am going to take a day next week to post pictures and share with you exactly what we have been doing in the Hannon Family.

Jackson is going like a weed he is growing so fast that people say from week to week that he has got more tall and I want to make the madness stop. He has lost 2 teeth this summer. One of his fears has been concord and now he is excited to see more come out. He said "not too fast though." He starts Kindergarten on August 17th. I am sniffing and he is excited he is thrilled to have Miss Jaimie as his teacher and he can't wait to learn to read.

Jeremy is STILL burning himself out and working 3 jobs. He has finally started the hire on process at Bank of America. I personally can't wait to have insurance again!!! Jeremy's latest job/hobby is being on a radio show with Dave Diamond. Its a local talk show if you google it you can sometime here Jeremy on there. He has also been offered a tech show on Saturdays he is currently trying to name so far he likes Byte Wars. Me not so much I think he is going instead get a ton of vampire fans disappointed that they are not exsploring twilight or Anne Rice novels.

Mom is doing great she servived Disneyland and is already planning the next trip. Yes you totally read that right she wants to go again! She is doing PT 2 times a week still. She is still making progress on everything, including going new places and being will to try and see new things. STILL can not get her near the beach lol but she loves just about anything else.

Well.... Enough of that... I actually started to post today because I wanted to lead up to my cousin Cheryl's wedding. YEP Cheryl and Jason will be getting marred today.

Cheryl you have come so far this last year you have allowed God to guide you in not that most CHERYL LIKE direction and you have waited on His signs to place you where you need to be. I am so glad Brandi led you to Jason and today I am going to see you walk down the aisle. You have walked through fire to get to the place where you are now and I am so happy to see joy in your eyes each day. I love you so much and I wish you and Jason the very best. You also have brought a wonderful extension to our family in Jason and his boys. I can't wait to call them family :)

Happy 4th Yall

more to come and Disneyland too

Monday, May 31, 2010


May has been an insanely busy month. Really it is once again birthday central around here. My mom celebrated her 57th birthday I am so glad she was able to do this without being in the hospital. We also celebrated my Mom-in-laws birthday and my cousin Cheryl's birthday. Not to mention we also had Mothers Day.
Jackson LOVES to be onstage. He loves to sing and dance and the Mother's Day Tea was the perfect place for that.
After I we went to Papas house and Mom walked up stairs YEP you read that right she did it. No problem at all. I am so very proud of her for all of her hard work! This is proof she did it!While we were there a took some pics in front of Nana and Papas house. I am going to miss this place so much when they take it away to build a freeway. I have so many memories of this place. I grew up having Christmases here and every Friday night I would have a sleep over in the at the time GINORMOUS water bed. I remember playing on the bed with my grandmother. I remember being the garage with my Papa helping him sand old cars and getting dirty. I know it is just a inanimate object but it just pains me to think of them tearing it down. It is one of those places that has always stayed the same. It has always been a place of refuge for me and a place to go to just be calm and with family. I learned to roller skate in the drive way. I l have so many memories of this place that I can not name them all.
I am going to go back and take some more pictures before the time comes that they get rid of it. But I did take some good pic of Jackson on the fence! Oh how Nana would have loved to see him climbing this fence she would have loved to have seen us take these pictures. The reflection one was taken next to my grandfathers 48 Buick! Jackson says its his favorite!
I plan on doing a separate blog about Jackson's graduation, but that also happend!
