Cute Pics/Selling the Jetta

Here are a few recent pics of Jack. As you can see his new favorite face is to bite his bottom lip.
We recently decided to sell our Jetta and become a "1 car family". We realized that we really don't have a need for two cars, and it is a big expense that would be fairly easy to cut. If you know anyone that might be interested here is the post on Craigslist.

Back on the Wagon

SO much for getting back on the blogging bandwagon huh?

Anyways, since I last posted we have been one busy family. Last Wednesday my parents flew out here for a week, and spent a few days here with us, and then we spent a few days at Beaver Creek with them. Here were a few highlights of the trip:

-Matt and my dad went prairie dog shooting, to find all the prairie dogs went into hiding that day and they just got some target practice in.

-I spent some time coupon shopping with my mom and Jack resulting in some excellent deals and a helping hand.

-Matt and my dad installed our new garage door opener, which is WONDERFUL compared to having to get in and out of the car every time.

-We made and froze a LOT of babyfood (pears, apples, green beans, and a LOT of bananas).

-We cooked a froze a bunch of broccoli (we now have a lifetime supply in the freezer).

-We got Jack some new swim trunks.

-Matt and I got some GREAT skiing in at Breckenridge and Beaver Creek.

-We also had a GREAT date night with babysitting courtesy of my parents, dinner at Outback (courtesy of UPS due to Matt being the best employee of the 4th quarter!) and a great Redbox movie (Fireproof).

This morning my parents flew home and it was back to the real world for us as I went back to work after an entire week off. Sorry about the infrequency of posts... I promise to start trying harder!

Falling off the Blogging Bandwagon

Recently we have been super busy and I hate to say that I "fell off the blogging bandwagon". Don't worry though, I fully intend to get back on and start blogging again.

Our move went really smooth, we had tons of help from friends and not a single thing broke! We are getting all settled in our new place and it is WONDERFUL. It is so nice to have a garage, storage space, and more room to move. We got a few cute pics of Jack when we were packing... he sure wasn't much help!

Okay...So, I don't make many of these post, but I thought I would say something tonight. As most of you know we have picked up and moved. While the move was not far, it still stinks getting everything packed up and unpacked. However tonight as I have been getting our bedroom in order and I was listening to some music and started thinking. I came to realize, that I LOVE my family more than anything in the entire world. I know this seems obvious but things get hectic, time goes by fast, but I am loving every second of it. I have a beautiful wife, and a perfect son. What else could I ask for? Most of you know that I have been waiting to get promoted at work, and it seems like I have been waiting forever. It has had me down as of late and a little stressed. For some reason tonight while I was listening to Todd Agnew and just thought of how wonderful my life really is. I know that I am doing everything I can to get promoted. So, tonight I put it in God's hands and I trust that he will do what is best for Jess and I. I am done letting it get me down!! I just thank God everyday for Jess and Jackson.

Jess and Jackson I LOVE YOU!!!
