Standing Up and Playing

Jaxson is pulling up on everything! He loves to stand up and see what he can find. We put the table legs on one of his toys this past week so that he could enjoy playing on his feet. He loves pulling up on the coffee table, couch, play pen, Dad's legs, etc....he is definitely a climber.

We can barely keep up with the little guy as it is...I can't even imagine what it is going to be like once he starts walking!

Play Ball!

Jaxson has figured out how to play catch with me! This video shows a little of it...however, we have sat on the floor and thrown the ball back and forth 7 or 8 times in a row! Amazing!

Eating Dinner with Dad

So, Jessica left the house to run some errands the other night and guess who was in charge of feeding Jaxson his dinner? That's!

Needless to say, Jaxson and I had a lot of fun and some good laughs before we finished his meal! Enjoy the pics!

Happy New Year!

Dear Blog Followers,

Our new year was very parties, no late nights, no laughing with friends until 2 AM. We spent this year laid up on the couches at home. We brought the New Year in with Dick Clark and company on the television.

While this was a change for Jessica and myself, we must admit that it was a welcome change. 2008 has been good to us by blessing us with Jaxson Lane. It is amazing how much he has filled our lives with joy this year. With all the other trials and tribulations both our families have gone through the past 12 months, Jessica and I are very thankful for all the Good Lord has blessed us with.

So, here's to you and here's to a great 2009!


Christmas In Rusk

On Christmas morning, we loaded up and drove over to Rusk. As you can see below, there was a lot of activity going on over there! We had a lot of fun watching all the kiddos tear into there gifts.

After all the dust settled, Jessica, Jaxson, and I spent the afternoon chatting with Lewie and Elaine. Very relaxing Christmas Day.

On your mark, get set, OPEN THE GIFTS!

Christmas in Cushing

Christmas in Cushing was a success this year. Jaxson got way more gifts than we know what to do with. Both sides of our family spoiled him good!

As always, we had Christmas Eve festivities in Cushing and then spent Christmas day over in Jessica's hometown, Rusk.

Santa in Cushing, Texas

Santa made a stop in Cushing, Texas on December 22 to pay a visit to all the local kids. By chance, we drove in from Houston that day and Jaxson got to pay the big guy a visit. Below are some pictures from the festivities...
