The world from Jack's Eyes

I've been forgetting to post this...

When Lucy turned three years old, I created a set of questions that I'd ask her every year. I'd document her answers year by year and enjoy how her answers change as she grows up.

So, Jack turned three in December, and here is his set of answers. It's just adorable seeing things from a three year old's perspective, especially from the eyes of Jack Martin :)

Happy 3rd Birthday, Jack!

May you grow up to be righteous, may you grow up to be true. May you always know the truth and see the lights surrounding you. May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong. May you stay forever young.” - Bob Dylan

First Haircut for Connor

My toehead just needed a trim around the ears and bottom. Since I've given up on cutting Jack's hair (although I seriously think he's received worse cuts at an actual hair cut place :), I'll relish the few times I'll be able to cut Connor's before he too needs more skilled hands touching his wispy locks.

Runny nose was from the cold we've all been kicking around; he wasn't crying about the haircut :)

wiggle worm!

Jason snapped a few of the kids while I was finishing up...

Jason and his Jeep!

So aside from marrying Jason, the next best decision I've ever made was to surprise him with a Jeep for Christmas. And though I had temporary doubts - and it turns out my family and friends had far bigger worries :) - it was totally worth the risk!

Jason has been enjoying the heck out of his new car...taking it out every day for some kind of ride, going on "adventures" with the kids, washing it several times, tending to it, cooing to it... just kidding.

And today, I think, was probably his favorite day with his new toy. He and a few buddies drove north to the border, and played around at some kind of trail. His friend Jim took his Jeep, and they met up with a guy who had a Jeep as well. Take a look at the fun - and jams - they got in :)

Just goin' through a little puddle...

Hi Ho, hi ho, it's off to play we go...

Jason's first "stuck"

And this jam allowed the engineer boys to put their minds to work and come up with a solution to get this jeep out. I think he said it took about an hour for this one. :)


I kind of wanna' go next time! :)
