well hello there...

Ummm... it has come to my attention that it has been 2 months since I've posted. What?! I'm surprised that I even remembered what my blog address was. My brain is usually done for by the end of the day. I can't possibly think of something to write that people will actually want to read. But, I guess I better fill you in on the past 2 months. My grandpa passed away last month after a 10 month battle with cancer. Losing both grandpas in 6 months is just not fair. It's been really hard. I think about him everyday and think "how can he REALLY" be gone. I know he is in a better place and know he's not in any pain. Tim's uncle also passed away a couple weeks ago, so it's kinda been depressing over here. But, Jaxson has definitely been the sunshine for us all. Even in your saddest moment... he can ALWAYS make you smile. Oh how I love that boy. Here's a picture of my grandparents meeting Jaxson for the first time at the airport last year. He was SO proud of Jaxson!

Jaxson is 19 months old and talking more and more. Everyday there is a new word he's saying. The new one today is bubble and it sounds more like bub-ol. So cute. Jaxson and Addy are still the best of friends. Jaxson would rather play with Addy over any of his toys anyday.

Ok... some fun stuff now. Most of you should know Jody, but in case you don't please go to her blog and to her etsy site here. She is going on a mission trip to Ethiopia this summer and is raising $$ for some AWESOME organizations. So, PLEASE go check out her stuff. It's cute! I have 2 necklaces and LOVE them! That's Jody in the picture below - how can you not buy something from that pretty lil face?!?!

And then Jody has this friend Kelly who I met last year when I was visiting. She is selling some cool stuff for their adoption. I am totally getting a tote... actually I think I'll get TWO totes and use one as a gift. So... go on over to her site and support them!!

Ok... that's all I got. All this posting has wore me out. Ha - just kidding. Well.. sorta.
