Jaxon's 5th Birthday Party

Jaxon's Party was a success! He insisted on a party with some boys in his class this year and he got it. We went to Jungle land In Agoura and it was age appropriate for all the kids who attended 7 months to 6 years. We were there from 4-7 and everyone seemed to have a blast especially Jaxon. Four boys came from his class with their siblings, Mikyl & Jaz came Redondo Beach to celebrate and Jeremy and Emmy played and loved it! We had our own room to have pizza, cake, and Jaxon opened his gifts and the rest was just running around and having fun. Even Josh made an appearance..thanks Joshy Boy! We have all been sick so today we are relaxing and cleaning up the house. Until next year....

Our Baby is 5 today!

I cannot believe Jaxy is 5 today!! Where has the time gone? He has gone from a beautiful baby, active toddler, and now to a sweet & smart big boy. We have come a long way but it has all been worth it and I am so Thankful for our son. He loves to dance, play his video games, sports,hang out with his family, and most of all with his imaginary friends...power rangers...soldiers..and superheroes. Thank you for these five years Jaxon and may this year bring you all the joy, laughter, and love you deserve. We are off to Jungleland to celebrate!
We love you,
Mom, Dad, Emmy, & Chuy

Merry Christmas!

I know I have been a terrible blogger lately. I wanted to post a few recent pictures before December is over. We took our Christmas pictures with my talented photographer/mother in law a couple weeks ago. It was hard getting the kids to look and smile at the same time but they turned out pretty well. We also took the kids to the mall for a picture with Santa. It was interesting to say the least. As most of you know Jaxon up to this point has been terrified of Santa Clause. This year although he was nervous I told him he had to show his sister how brave he is. He had a little one on one with her before we went into see Santa. We sat him down and the photographer was taking her time so Jaxon almost had a meltdown but ended up pulling through. Emmy on the other hand was a disaster as you can see in the picture. Well we got or 2007 Santa picture but every time I look at it I do feel a bit guilty knowing that Emmy might have nightmares about that strange man with a white beard for a while. I hope all is well with everyone and may you have a very Merry Christmas. All our love

Jaxon's School Pictures

We are back from Idaho and trying to get back into the swing of things. Lots of clothes to put away and figuring out where to start....We all had a fabulous time and look forward to visiting again in the near future. Jacob has gone to work, Jaxon is at school, and Emmy has gone to Grandmas so I decided to add a few pics. These are Jaxon's 2007 Pre-K school pictures. He loves school and his teachers are amazing. He was extremely excited to go to school today and tell everyone about his trip!

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!!! Here are some pictures of Jacob & Jaxon going to a Halloween party last Saturday night. Jacob said there were ghosts and gobblins everywhere. The house was very spooky and everyone was all dressed up. The boys were back an hour and a half later with fright:) Emmy also wanted to put on her costume that night but was tired and cranky. Hopefully she will do better tonight. Have a safe and happy Halloween!!!

Jaxon Sings

Last Sunday Jaxon along with other children from his preschool sang at church. He stayed on stage the whole time and joyfully sang with his friends. I am very proud of Mr. Jaxon and relieved at the same time. For the past couple years as much as I have loved and adored him he wasn't exactly the easiest child. However, the past six months he has really done a 180. He communicates much better, listens and is able to rationalize with, and really tries to make the right choices...Not to mention a great brother. Saying that lately he has been fibbing a little bit for example he drew a happy face on his dresser and when I confronted him he said Emma did it....I tried telling him that Santa is listening and this could effect him getting presents at Christmas. He is so petrified by Santa Claus that he says he doesn't want any presents from Santa. Okay that doesn't work. So the other day he was in the bathroom for a while and when he came out I asked "did you poop?" "No" he said. (I know he did and just doesn't want to wipe) So I asked him again and he gave me the guilty look and said no. So I said " Jaxon God is listening to you and he doesn't like when you lie" he sad " Mom, God (pointing up) doesn't care he is busy making his boat." I had to walk away with laughter...he has been learning about Noah's Ark at school and got the two confused. So funny but please no fibbing and just wipe!

Pee, Pee, and more Peeeeeeeeee....

I should be working but thought I would write/type real quick. Okay so last night I had lots of energy...Everyone was in bed and I did laundry, watched "The Hills" online, and relaxed. I was getting tired and I climbed into bed awwwwww so nice as I am laying there I am smelling pee I check my pillow, my blankets, and then the sheets. Keep in mind I just changed my sheets yesterday so this should of been a pleasant experience.....Gross my sheet smelt like pee????? Okay so I go downstairs and get on the couch oh how lovely next thing you know I am awaken by Jaxon screaming, I am wet, I am soaked.....Run upstairs change him and of course he wants to get in our bed.... we went downstairs and layed on the couch. Get up this morning walk into the laundry room to put on the dryer and Chuy has peed...yes I stepped in it. Get Emmy up change her diaper actually put on her panties while she eats her breakfast next thing I know she has peed too. On the floor on her chair as it is trickiling down and I am cleaning up this mess trying to get Jaxon to school all I can think of is BREATH and patience patience patience. What a morning
Jaxon has been doing pretty well with the whole wetting his bed but still changing his sheets a couple times a week and my bed now. Any suggestions to make the smell go away other than taking a vacation by myself:) because thats not going to happen?
One more thing. I had just put Emmy down for a nap as I am finishing my post I hear her go in her room and not only has she climbed out of her crib but is laying on her changing table waiting for her diaper to be changed (which was not even wet). She has been doing this the past couple days either in the mornings or after naps. I just took the changing table out of her room as I am doing that I look and she is in Jaxons room standing on his bookshelf......OMGoodness!!!!! I am with her right now but I swear she is a monkey and hopefully I don't have a heart attack by 32.

Pumpkin Patch

Thursday we went to the Pumpkin Patch with Jaxon's class. We all had a blast...hay rides, pony rides (yes Jax & Emmy), playing in the trains & other fun stuff set up for the kids, and feeding the animals! Jacob was off this week taking a break before starting Merrill Lynch next week. It was great having him there to help with the kids and to have a family day! The kids are really getting used to Jacob staying home, they might have a hard time next week. Jaxon wakes up everyday asking if Daddy is downstairs and Emmy is loving his time as well. I don't know if he really did get a break in our house but he said he has enjoyed his time off.

New Job!!!

Congratulations! Jacob was just offered a job at Merrill Lynch as a Financial Advisor. It has been a rough couple weeks for him with many restless nights, many interviews, and especially having to tell his current job that he is leaving after 7 years. He will miss the people he is working with but he is extremely excited about his decision.

Weekend Fun

Just a little tribute to Ozzy....I got Ozzy almost 6 years ago as a Birthday present from Jacob (actually I think Tara did the searching). We named him Ozzy a suggestion from our friend Andrea since Jacob & I met at Outback an Australian themed restaurant. So we spelled his name Ozzy not Aussie...weird but oh well it worked. He was such a beautiful cat and my first baby! He was an inside/outside cat so when we moved to our new house we tryed for 3 weeks to keep him in but he was miserable. Although he enjoyed his naps on the bed he loved to explore. We eventually let him out and he has been fine until recently.... he went missing about a month ago now and has not come back. Hopefully a nice family is looking after him and he is safe & happy. Jacob is convinced the coyotes got him but I think he is too quick and smart. Not to mention, I certainly don't want to picture that. I have heard of many stories of cats coming back so we can only hope but I truly feel that I won't see him again. Thank you for the memories and for all the presents (mice) you left for us outside! We miss you Ozzy!!
