Take Steps for Crohns

On Saturday, we participated in the Take Steps for Crohn's walk! Our team, Jones' Crohnies, raised over $1300 for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. This year Lindsay raffled off a wreath and work and Jessica, Dad, and I particpated in a bake sale at Robins & Morton. It is always a fun time to raise money for such a great cause! We're so blessed that Dad's Crohns' is under control. God is good! Thank you to all of our friends and family who donated. A grand total will come in the next week or so once it is all processed...

Kite Flyin' Time...

The other weekend we went to Grandma's house. We bought Jalen a Star Wars kite and he had a blast with it. He is really good at flying it. He got it stuck in the big tree and I had to work it out without ripping it. He had a great time running around and making the kite fly, with out without wind. If there was no wind, he would run around and make wind to see it fly.

Lost Teeth!

Jalen lost his first tooth! It was very loose and then the last time he touched it, it just fell out! I wish I could say that is what happened to the other three, but nope! He had to have 3 other teeth on the bottom extracted on the 20th. Poor buddy! He did really well and I couldn't be any prouder of him. He told me when he was getting in the shower that he just didn't think it was a good idea to go back to a dentist. Pictures of his smile with minus four teeth will come once the swelling and all goes down!

First T-Ball Game

Jalen had a blast at his first t-ball game!

 He was interested in it about the whole time!
 He hit the ball really good. I was proud of him. He said it is just like the Wii!
He did this pose himself. He thinks he is tough stuff.


 Jalen started T-Ball this year...
 and seems to enjoy it.
 All I want him to do is have fun!
But, he does hit and throw the ball pretty good!!

Easter 2012

I was really delayed in getting these on here, so I decided to do one massive post of a million Easter pictures. We had a very blessed Easter and are continually reminded of how He has blessed us!

To Hear...

Pages turning from Jalen's room when I get out of the shower is a noise I have waited forever to hear! For the first time, on his own, he didn't turn the tv on and got a book and looked at the pictures (and read)! I love this little boy!!

Sunday Love

Our Sundays are very noisy, constantly moving, full of funny sayings, Zombies running around, people getting shot by Nerf guns, anything but normal, and we love them that way. Sundays are some of the times that I just look back on and smile. Getting my kisses from Ryan when I'm leaving on Sundays makes my week. When Brooklyn comes over and seeing her run behind the boys makes my week. Seeing Jalen with his Grandpa and how they look just alike... whew! What a great start to the week. 

Miss Neriah

What a sweet little face who brings so many smiles to our faces! She's so different from Salah and it's so fun to see them grow!! I look forward to all of the firsts and watching Jalen and Salah show her the ropes!!

Basketball with Oma and Opa

Oma and Opa came over the other day to plant some flowers in my flower pots, which was an excellent surprise. Afterwards, they played basketball with Jalen! Oma had a good shot. Salah joined us a bit later. It was a fun time and Jalen was super excited Oma and Opa stopped over to play basketball on his goal he got for Christmas.
