Jackson Turns 4

Yep that is what I said!!! Jackson turned 4 today! Four years ago today I met my little boy who changed my life. I could not imagine him not in our lives. He is our entertainment through out the day and he makes everything better when you think you are going to have a bad day. I love that he can't wake up without saying good morning to each person in the house even when they are sleeping. I love that he can not stay
clean for anything even when just standing on the
front porch he can find something to get into just to make one dirty spot on him lol.
I love that he has to show me figures when you want 2 of something and putting it directly in my eye sight so I know for sure you want 2 crackers or 2 cookies :) I crack up that I have to help him put his shoes on the exact same way every day or he will question me 50 times throughout the day why I did it that way. I still do not understand why he must wear your new star (converse) EVERYDAY! If we can not find them he says "Oh it's going to be a grumpy bad say." I am amazed that Jackson will learn a Bible story at school or BSF and he will know it with every small detail even if the teacher doesn't think he has been listening. He will then tell it to everyone he sees. I am in awe of my sons faith. He tells people they need Jesus in their hearts so they will be in heaven and have a good clean heart. I could name so many more things about this child that I could have never known 4 years ago. The only thing I knew is that he was loved and wanted he was so wanted and has made our lives even more of a joy that could have ever thought of. I enjoy being a Mama greatly I think my life would be so boring without this child in my life and I would have no idea what to do with myself. I am sure I would but I really don't think I want to experience that! I am so glad to call him my son and he is so worth every moment of time I spend with him. I do believe Jeremy thinks the same of him too :)(The Shoes Nana bought that he must have on every day!)

Today Jackson has had school and lots of play time in his new play house that his Grandma Donna and Papa Pete bought he thinks its awesome. It has been a nice day so he has taken every advantage of it. We have open house at preschool tonight so we will be doing that and then follow up by going to dinner! There will be a ton more pics from today but I just wanted to mark this date!

First Day of Spring!

Today is the first day of spring Jackson played outside a lot and I pretty much stayed in because I am just plain tired! BUT!!! Google had the most awesome googles this week I didn't get the idea of making the copy of it till today so I didn't get the St. Patrick's Day one. I have some pics from that day too that I just have to upload and get on here so soon to come more pictures of Jackson in his green and tatoo :)

The invites are made woo hoo!

Not much to say other than that. Everything is booked! Jackson is sooo excited it is pretty much the theme of conversation everything is centered around HIS party lol!!!


It's official today Jeremy started his new job! I didn't want to blog about it until his first day, mainly because I wanted to make sure it actually happened. Jeremy is working for US Davis at the Mondavi Center for the performing art. Those of you who know Jeremy should know he is a huge performing arts fan who also likes being part of the action to. He said the job must have truly been God sent because it is so perfect and the best of both worlds. One down side to it is the commute. I am not complaining about it and neither is Jeremy so we must not be too worried about it lol. I wish it was closer yes but the job has its perks I am sure. First being that the job pays for its gas money so that is a huge deal and one of the reasons why I am not worried about it. I also know the Lord's hand his on Jeremy and we have already discussed if he gets too tired he can stay with his Sister Sarah for a night in Sacramento.

We asked Jackson what he thought of this and he said WOO HOO my BIRFDAY PARRRTY. Oh and that we can play games at the fair. LOL the funny things that stick in a 4 year olds head. He also said Daddy is working at the movie theater lol. Jeremy explained that it was a theater so that is what he went to. He said that means Daddy can take him to the movies lol. WOW kids

So the plans for Jacksons birthday have been started the request for Chuck E Cheese has been made by Jackson so i believe his party is on the 4th of April when I get the invites done I will be mailing them and emailing them and I am sure posting them on here. I hope everyone is doing well and thanks everyone for all the prayers they were much needed I am sure Jeremy will be telling us a lot about his new job! Love you all

Happy Birthday Grandma Bev & Steven & Dr Suess

Like a said before March is a HUGE birthday month for our family. Grandma Bev celebrated her birthday at Sizzler. She wanted steak and lobster and she knew they had to there :) We had a great time with our family and took some photos too. Oh and Yes Jackson signed his name again in the card but I totally forgot to take a picture of it. We had a great time though.

Steven is my cousin's son and he shares the same birthday as Grandma Bev So this week has been Jam packed with celebrations. For Steven's birthday we went to Mountain Mikes and had Pizza. Jackson ran around and played video games with his 4 cousins. We had a alot of fun.

Steven, Taylor, Ethan, Jackson & Max

Steven and his new summer clothes

Jackson & Max (check out how much he has changed)

Also the week before Jackson celebrated Dr. Suess' Birthday. All day long we read Dr. Suess and Jackson wore his hat. We got the hat for free at a Dr. Suess' Birthday book reading they had a target. They gave out pencils, color pages, snacks and drinks. Jackson was thrilled that they let him keep that hat. Once again I forgot my camera but here he is in the hat!

Almond Blossom Festival

The Day that the Almond Blossom Festival was going on in Ripon was a very big day. We had a birthday party to go to Jackson got a hair cut. We had the normal things to do also plus Jeremy worked a booth there. So we got to walk around for a bit and I took a few pictures here and there. Here a few from that day. Jackson thinks we need spinners on our van. Uhhh I have a feeling this is not going to happen. We played 2 carnival games. The dime toss and the pingpong ball toss. Plus Alex sat still long enough so I could take a few pics of him in the clover. Jackson would not so this year we did not get any.

Can ya see it?

We have been going to a few birthday parties lately! So get ready for some posts. Jackson was invited to a party and I decided lets see if he can sign his name in the card. Not just scribbles but his actual name Welllll... he can it took a bit yes and I had to right the letters on a peice of paper so he could copy it, but he did it. He was soooo excited that he did it that he made me get the camera so he could show everyone!

OHHH and Jackson got these in his goody bag he thinks they are really funny!!!.


Just had to post this picture Julie, Kaitlin and Nathan bought this for Jackson for Christmas and I never got a chance to show everyone. Jackson runs around the house like a crazy man screaming "SUPER JACKSON"

Nathan turns 4

I totally forgot to mention in February my godson/cousin turned 4. Nathan and Jackson and exactly are exactly 7 weeks apart. They are total opposites personality wise one is shy and one is outgoing but they love to play and hang out together. We had the extreme honor of getting to celebrate by eating Nathans favorite food Pizza and of course chocolate cake :) He picked the theme spider man. He even got the costume for his birthday from a friend. We got him a tint for his birthday, and he decided that he was going to sleep in it that night. As you can tell we had a lot of fun. Once again I still cant believe this child is 4 now too. Nathan also got to start coming to Sunday School in my class. He thought that was a very exciting gift too :)
