We went and saw Santa...and Jackson was super strategic on his approach with Santa this year. He said he only wanted to ask for one thing, a drum set. But as he walked off from Santa he yelled out, "Oh hey! I forgot!!! I really need a light saber too. It's way important. Ok?"
Somehow this scene reminded me of when Ralphie on A Christmas Story crawled back up the slide and told Santa what he really wanted.
Thankfully this Santa didn't tell Jackson he would shoot his eye out with the light saber.
My mom, Jackson and I made a quick trip to Wichita Falls last Friday to see my cousin Zachary play hockey. Zach is 17 and from Las Vegas but plays on semi pro hockey teams all across the country. He recently was in North Dakota but was moved to the Wichita Falls Wildcats about a month ago so it was super fun to get to see him play. And FYI, this kid is REALLY REALLY good. He is eligible to be drafted this year so it will be interesting to see where he will end up! Jackson was in awe of the game and Zach. I have never in my life seen my son so quiet. He was literally hanging on to every word Zach said. We bought him a Wildcats jersey and he hasn't taken it off since.
We also went to the All College Tournament and watch OU play Houston with our friends the Furnish's. These two buddies got to sit together and wrestle and watch the game. Love their friendship.
I have been craving Mexican food lately, so Jax and I have been frequenting many tex mex establishments. Lots of queso has been consumed. Don't judge.
Jackson also started tennis lessons and this kid is freaky good. Here he is chomping at the bit to get out on the court.
His coach told me after his first lesson that he has never seen a four year old with such amazing hand eye coordination. He can hit the ball every time over the net and with total control.
We also had our Christmas dinner with the Hesketts. Look at these sweet boys. And yes, that is a Christmas sack on CJ's head.
And what post isn't complete without a pic of my sleeping baby. Ok, so he's not so much a baby anymore, but he will always be my baby!!!
Other than that we have just been busy with most all holiday things, a little bit of drama, and a momma who is getting bigger by the minute.
Hard to believe that I am in my third trimester next week. This kiddo moves all the time and has recently gotten me into really spicy food. I am so thankful for the blessing of being pregnant again and the upcoming arrival of our third son. Still no names for him yet. If we don't pick one soon we may have to go with Jackson's new name for his brother. Captain Hook.
Merry Christmas and Happy holidays to all of you who read my blog. As always I am so blessed as encouraged by all of you!
