A Few Firsts!

So this summer is going to be full of a lot of FIRSTS for Logan! We started off with having Carson stay the night with us while Zac, Laura and Macey went to help get Grandpa Jacobson's truck unstuck. So we blew up the air mattress and they watched Over the Hedge and a few episodes of Spongebob and they were both sound asleep. I slept out on the couch just to make sure they were okay. They both did great and next time I am sleeping in my bed.  






Carson got to stay until lunch time the next day so we played outside. I mowed the lawn and Logan, Carson and Ashlee all played outside. Logan and Carson chased each other and played on the swing set. Ashlee sat in the shade in her exersaucer and just enjoyed being outside. I even was able to con the boys into stacking some branches that I cut off our trees into a pile for me. They sure were a lot of help. So it was definitely a fun first sleep over at our house for Logan. He sure was upset that Carson had to go home, and was sad for about a hour or two after he left :(! So we will have to have Carson come over and spend the night again!


The other first is that yesterday my mom took the day off because the Circus was in town and she took Logan to it! They sure had a fun day, with all the fun stories that I heard. He had so much fun that he didn't want to come home, he wanted to go spend the night with GRANDMA!

Typical Logan turning from the camera. But it was a hot one yesterday so Logan sat under the umbrella and ate his yummy snow cone!!!

Sitting watching the people and animals! Look at the snow cone, he ate the whole thing!

The tigers!

He growls when he sees these pictures!


Pretty Cool!


Now this is yet another first at the Circus. My mom gave him a choice to either get his picture taken with a BEAR or to ride the ELEPHANT. Although his eyes lit up when he told me that he saw a BEAR, he was even more excited that he got to ride an ELEPHANT!!!!

His view from a top the ELEPHANT!!

I thinks its cool that he got to sit in the front. What a special picture of him and Grandma riding an Elephant together for the first time!
Some time we will have to go to a bigger Circus because Matthew has never been to one. Then maybe we can all ride an Elephant. So a big thanks to Grandma for making yesterday such a fun memory for Logan! He sure had a big smile on his face when he got home. He also had an incredibly annoying space gun that he seemed to come home with from the circus too! So thanks again Grandma! (Its really not that bad, its actually kind of cool)

So he will be experiencing yet another first with Grandma today and I will post pics and stories after I hear how things went :)!!!!!!

It is going to be a great summer for us this year!!!!


So Logan got to go to his first movie at the movie theater. Yep it was CARS 2! He did great at it and only had to go to the bathroom a thousand times, because I guess he had a lot to drink :)! I am not sure if it was a good movie or as good as the first, but it had McQueen and Mater in it so who cares. So we will have to go as a family sometime. I cant wait!

Out With the Old in With the New

So Matthews camera that he has had for seven years had to finally be put to rest. It just up and quit on us last week. It was a sad moment for Matt, because he had been through a lot with his camera. His friend was there for him through what was to be his best two years, in Pennsylvania. Then for our start and what has been our best 4 yrs, as a family :)! We gave him a proper resting place as Logans new toy camera.(You cant just throw an old friend away!) So we will now take a few moments of silence for a lost friend :(!            ....................................................................................

Now on to the new and awesome camera. We got a Nikon Coolpix camera with a touch screen and lots of fun and awesome features!

Since Logan wont sit still for pictures yet little Miss Ashlee will be the model for the feature that I love.

Selective Colors:






I am definitely going to use this alot because I love it!

Good Bye Old Dear Friend and Hello New Awesome Friend!

Little Boys!

So I have a few more little stories to share about what Logan has been up to. So I usually let Logan go outside and play while I do things around the house. I check on him usually every 5-10 minutes to make sure that he is in the yard and not doing anything that he shouldnt. Also recently he has been going into the corral with cows in it that is next to our house. He gets in trouble and has to come inside everytime he goes into the corral. But he really doesnt care and we keep putting him in timeout when he does, and he keeps going in. Well the other day, Matthew brought him in because he was out in the corral and the funny thing was that he was in nothing but his church shoes. Yep he was naked and in his nice church shoes. What was he thinking? I have no idea nor do I know how he made it outside without his clothes on. He sure does keep me on my toes and I have to keep a close on him all day.

Here is another one. Yesterday he went outside with me to put water on the garden. I hooked the hose up to the pipe in the garden and went to turn on the water and I found him with his pants off. I asked him what he was doing and looked down to notice that he pooped on the sidewalk. I just laughed. I dont know what his deal has been lately but it seems like we have taken a step back with him going to the bathroom. I just dont know about this kid, but boys will be boys. They sure do things a lot different than girls, but what fun it is to be the mother to a wonderful little boy!

6 MONTHS!

Wow! Ashlee turned 6 months on Sunday and we went to her 6 month check-up yesterday. She is still pretty small and her growing has slowed down a little. I just think that she is going to be a little petite thing. Oh well, we have to go back to the doctor in 3 months to check her growth. She is healthy though, just on the small side and just as cute and happy as ever!

Here are some 6 Month Pictures of Our Sweet Baby Girl

Cute Little Logan

So I have been meaning to get a few of Logans funny little sayings written down. It has been a few weeks since he said these, but I still remember them and they make me smile. I love this little boy and he sure is full of life.

First off, we drink more chocolate milk at our house than anything. It is absolutely Matt and Logans favorite thing to drink. We buy two huge chocolate milk things from Costco every other month. So that goes to show you just how much these two drink. Anyway, a few weeks ago we were outside and I saw Logan putting dirt into Phantoms water bucket and I told him to stop, and he replied," I making chocolate for Phantom." I couldnt get mad, he was just trying to share all the goodness of chocolate milk with his pal Phantom :)!!!!

So I am always doing the little pigs with Logan's toes. He now does it with Ashlee's toes when she doesnt have something covering her toes. It is pretty cute to watch. Well a few weeks ago, he was playing and he stubbed his toes and he crawled up on the couch beside me and was crying and he said, "Mommy my piggies." I couldnt help but laugh a little and then we took care of his hurt little piggies. :)!!!!!!!!!!

He sure is a one of a kind kid and we wouldnt want it any other way!
