Jaxon's Photo Shoot

We had some pictures taken of Jaxon at JCPenney last week. He is such a little model!!

(And yes I do know that this is SO illegal!)

The Frog Princess

I just saw the new Disney movie "The Princess and the Frog" tonight with my sis-in-law (thanks Kalei!) and I loved, loved, LOVED it! It was so cute and sweet and I wish they would make more movies like it. It reminded me of the princess/fairy tale Disney classics I watched when I was a kid.


Jaxon found a new place for a fort -- in the dryer!!

"Exterior Illumination"

"You taught me everything I know about exterior illumination."
-Clark Griswald, Christmas Vacation
This post is for my Mom who really did teach me everything I know about "exterior illumination"! (If you have ever seen my parents' house, you will know what I am talking about!) My Mom puts up over 20,000 lights on their house every year (and yes, that is more than Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation!) Their house has even been in the newspaper. (And by the way Mom, the house looks great this year, as usual.)

Since I didn't put up any Christmas lights last year, I figured I better get on it early this year. I put them all by myself and I even put lights on our mailbox!

(I did have some extra support from Jaxon. He was BIG help (catch the sarcasm?!)) (And no, I really don't let my 15-month old climb ladders yet!)
I haven't hit the 20,000 mark yet but Shane did ask me if we were living in the Griswald's house this year so I figured I had done my Mom proud!All in all, I am very proud of myself. I even had a neighbor girl tell me that our house looked like a "gingerbread house"!
