Christmas is getting close!

Well, we will be heading up to East Texas, we gave Jaxson one of his gifts from us tonight! It is a new bouncer, walker, play table.....A WHOLE ACTIVITY CENTER! Plus, it is a red sports car...look out ladies!

Also, Jessica and I bought each other our Christmas present today. A new Samsung LCD HDTV! YEAH for us!

Me and Jaxson

I think he likes it!

Bath Time!

Jaxson sits up and splashes in the tub now...thought it was worth a post for all you guys to see.

Jaxson's First X-Mas Party!

Jaxson's daycare had their Christmas party on Friday, December 19. The older kids put on show of Christmas carols and such.

As for Jaxson, well he just provided lots of smiles and fun for everyone there! It won't be long until he is singing with the big kids though...he is practicing his yelling already!

Also, Jaxson got his very first glimpse of Mr. and Mrs. Claus. As you can see, he's not quite sure who they are just yet! HAHA!

Jaxson was scrutinizing Santa pretty good

Jaxson's first package!

Cody B-Day - Dec. 12, 2008

Jessica and Jaxson took me out for a great birthday dinner last Friday night. We were celebrating the big 2-9 for step closer to thirty. (hmm...I thought I was always suppose to stay young? this sucks!).

Anyway, we went to BJ's Restaurant and Brewery here in Clear Lake. I had some good food, a couple good beers, and, as you can see below, some OUTSTANDING company!

Happy B-day to....ME!

My main man and me

We discovered that Jaxson loves vanilla bean ice cream and warm chocolate chip cookies!

Snow in Houston - Dec. 10, 2008

Sorry folks! I'm a bit behind on my blogging due to law school finals.

It doesn't happen very often, but YES we did get snow in Houston on December 10! It started in the early evening and continued until well past midnight. The next morning, however, it had started to melt away...bummer.

As you can probably guess, Jaxson was indifferent to the snow...maybe next year he will appreciate it a little bit more (that is....if we even get any snow!). HAHA!

Thanksgiving 2008

Like most all of you out there, we spent our Thanksgiving with our families. We had a great time, but it went extremely fast! Below are some pics we snapped over the past several days.

Axe 'Em!

Jaxson woke up in fine form this morning. He has got to be the happiest baby in the world.

After he ate and took a bath, his mama dressed him in his brand new SFA outfit (compliments of PawPaw Byers). So, since it is 36 degrees here this morning, I thought it would be a perfect occasion to show my SFA Lumberjack spirit as well!

Getting Ready to Talk

Halloween Pictures

Jaxson first Halloween was great! While Jaxson wasn't sure what the big deal was, it is safe to say that Jessica and I had a lot of fun! Below are some pictures from Halloween...

Jaxson loves the ladies at daycare

Grannie and Papa Joe showing Jaxson how to count...he was amazed!

This is what Jaxson looks like after his Daddy feeds him...not quite as neat and clean as when his Mama does it.

Jaxson with "Mee-Maw." She is one of the ladies that looks after him at daycare. He laughs so hard when "Mee-Maw" plays with him.

Happy Birthday, Jessica!

Today was Jessica's birthday! As always, Jaxson woke up this morning in just a great mood! We dressed him in one of his brand new Halloween outfits. As you can see it said, "Mummy Loves Me".....well, isn't that the truth?!! HAHA!

We went out to eat dinner tonight and came back home before Jaxson got sleepy. Jessica got a new 32" HD LCD TV for our, she should be able to watch TV now without straining her eyes to focus in on the 19" one that we have used for years!

Jaxson also personalized a birthday card for her today with a crayon! This may have been the best gift of all!

Talk at you later, folks!

Super Jaxson

My sister, Gina, took the picture of Jaxson in his Halloween outfit and made the below image. Isn't it great!? As you can see, Super Jaxson is keeping a watchful eye on dear ol' Cushing, Texas.

The Big Dinner

While we were home this weekend, we attended the yearly McKnight Cemetery Dinner. The dinner serves a dual purpose: (1) it is a fund-raising event for the upkeep of the cemetery grounds and (2) it is a great opportunity for the local community to have a "reunion" and catch-up with those who now live some distance away.

My family has been long involved in the McKnight Dinner long before my days on this Earth. So, it was only fitting that Jaxson attend his very first "Big Dinner" event. Below are a few pictures.

Jaxson's First Swim

Jessica slowly eased Jaxson into the swimming pool this afternoon! As you can see, HE LOVED IT! They both had such a good time splashing around together. Jaxson's little legs were continuously kicking!

Mini Me?

My sisters bought us these shirts when Jaxson was born. We tried the onesie on Jaxson this weekend and it fit! So, we tried to snap a picture of us together.

As you can tell, the picture is not the greatest quality. This is because Jaxson is a "man on the move" and getting him to actually pose for pictures is near impossible.

Mini Me? (you be the judge)
