Over Christmas break we were able to go home as a family. My brother is a S.W.A.T. officer there. All of the family was over at my parents when my brother decided to stop by on his break. Jake was so "scary" as he says. Bro had all the get-up on, a gun strapped to each leg and a gun in a holster on his belt. Extra ammo all over the place! Jake was in awe, his mouth didn't shut. Jake wanted to know why his uncle could carry a gun and if he could touch it. It was a good lesson for him on gun safety! Now Jake wants to be a police officer. I hope that idea will fade for moms sake.
Katelynd was busy last week getting her science project done. She decided to test soda pop and juice on teeth. Yes, real teeth. Her project was titled Soda pop and Tooth decay. She got 2nd place and is going to the regionals. Katelynd was so excited! Good job Katelynd Keep working hard!
OK I had to ask special permission from Lindsay to put this on the blog. Lindsay got her lower braces on the other day. The orthodontist was very busy that day and left Lindsay waiting for sometime in the chair looking like this. It cracked me up, I had to take a picture. As soon as they put that contraption in her mouth I got an image in my head of the girl from flushed away, they were twins. It was even funnier watching her when she was talking. She was so mad at me for taking pictures of her like that. They will only be used for torture later on in life.
Just a little web site to keep our family and friends informed. Out in our new Hometown of O'Fallon, Missouri. We just all keep growing up and getting older. I am a mother of 4 fun loving active children. They sure keep me busy and I love every minute of it. We all have adjusted well out here in Missouri. Thank goodness we haven't seen any tornadoes though. Jason is very busy with Chiropractic school so I have been put in charge of the blog. I think he did that on purpose to teach me how to use the computer. Our family is so very blessed we love just to be with each other and having a little fun. Now we just try to get Dad to talk about other things besides Gross Anatomy and how our body works. But we love him all the same. We think of all of you often and miss you all(now i talk like a missourian).
Jason's step-mother Nancy gave this to me before we moved. I just refinished it! It was a dark oak in color. I just stripped it to the natural wood and sanded it really good. I love it!
Jason gave a facelift to Jakes car!
This Red truck was made for Jason by his Dad about 28 years ago. His dad Jimmy is very artisitic and cut the wood and built this truck. Jason loved his red truck he always played with it, rode it and wrecked it. Now his PaPa Jimmy and MeMa Nancy have givin' it to Jacob to enjoy. Jacob plays with this Monster truck all the time, when I see him play with it makes me think if that is the way Jason played and imagined too. So Jason decided to give it a facelift. Jake got to pick the color! We are just waiting to put on the flames!

Jake's New Truck
Here's the new and improved truck. We should have painted it white or the same color as our walls because Jake can't keep it off of them.
