Family stuff.

Doesn't seem like I've updated much lately about family matters. So, thought I'd take a few minutes to catch up. I love this picture of Jason. Daddy caught him just right!!



Cheeky little Justin. I'm sure he was saying "eese!" here.

My boys are getting so big!! They're nineteen months old now. They're starting to say some words. So cute. They like cinnamon bread, so I'll give them some in the mornings. They'll go through five or six slices easy. So, I'll give them a piece and tell them "One more, and then no more."....the other day Jason holds up his little pointer finger and goes "Oh more! "--made me chuckle. They've pretty much got me wrapped around their cute little pinkies.
Justin loves our kitty. He'll try to imitate her, "mow", and when he see's her he makes a little "tch, tch tch" sound, because that's how I usually call her. Justin loves bananas, so he's got "nana" down. They're pretty good at trying to imitate some of the things we say. They've learned to fold their arms for a prayer, but they don't hold it for very long, and of course we finish by clapping our hands, not with the normal "amen".

The girls are doing pretty good in school. A's and B's still, I get a little concerned though with my new work schedule, and making sure they're getting their homework done. Jon's good about getting them going on it, but I usually have to call and make sure Haley's done all aspects of her assignments. Guess we'll see how they're doing when we get their next progress report. I haven't been taking many pictures lately. I've got to get on the ball, so I can post some.
We'll hopefully getting a second vehicle in the next few weeks. We were hoping to have a nice enough tax return to be able to buy one, but we've got even better happening, because Jon's mom is giving him her old car. Yay!!!! We just saved a couple grand. This will help out tremendously around here, I can't even begin to say how much. See, those Temple blessings have already started. Now we can use whatever tax returns we might get back to get caught up on bills, and with any luck get a patio put in the backyard. Keeping my fingers crossed for a good return!!
