Kids... you gotta love them!

So literally as I am typing my last post about the
house, I look over and see this....

Jaxon is trying to eat a marshmallow that is stuck to the floor from Glen's Count Chocula cereal this morning. It would be one thing if he was just picking it off the floor and eating it (he is a boy, boys do that) but he has to take it one step further by trying to literally eat/lick it off the floor. YUCK!!! The funny thing is, he didn't even succeed... the marshmallow is still stuck to the floor!

Our New House

So I have had a few people ask when I was going to post pictures of the house... so here they are. We love it! After World War III during the "transition period" of selling, finding and closing I am glad we found the one we did. It was definitely an answer to prayers because we were able to find something that we both liked. I wanted something that looked nice inside and Glen wanted a big lot, no HOA and an RV gate (which is much harder to come by than it sounds). But after much searching, we found it! I has a HUGE backyard with grass, a big sand box, a concrete slab already poured for Glen's shop and the house was in GREAT condition and decorated perfectly for my taste and style and to top it off, it's 4 bedrooms which gives an office/scrapbook room and a separate playroom which is HEAVEN!

Late Niter

So last night I had an absolute blast! I enjoyed a much needed girls night out (which by the way my husband has been such a trooper about)! Me and two of my girlfriends, Kasey and Sarah, went to a scrapbooking late niter. I've been having "the itch" lately to scrapbook because embarrassing as it is, I haven't scrapbooked since before Jaxon was born (almost a year). Anyway, after feeling overwhelmed from the idea of starting Jaxon's book, I decided to make a "Jones Family Summer Fun 2007" book. Believe it or not, in a 5 hour time frame I only got two 2-page spreads done! When I came home and showed Glen his comment was "that is all you got done?". Yeah, that's all... but it was fun regardless except for the REALLY late night I had. I didn't even get home until midnight and then to make matters worse I tossed and turned until 2:00 am because I had scrapbooking on the brain and kept thinking up new ideas for pages. Then to top it all off... Jaxon decided he wanted to be awake at 6:00 am this morning! Gotta love it!

What a FACE!

Have I mentioned lately how much I love my boys?!? How can you not laugh when you see such a cute little face and huge old melon head? Jaxon is making the funniest faces lately... I absolutely love it!

Sand Dune Season!

Well, hopefully I am back and running again on the blogging... as long as my computer cooperates with me. This past weekend Glen Allen finally convinced me that riding season has officially begun. We had a blast over in Yuma at the sand dunes! Glen David thought he was in playground heaven with the unlimited amounts of sand (which I am still trying to clean out of every little nook and cranny of his body)! Jaxon was a little more hesitant of the unfamiliar "stuff" but soon decided it was a new adventure! At one point I dug two big rocks out of his mouth that he had been chomping on!

Glen David was a champ! He got his first ride on the sandrail and loved it!

Glen David also took his very first ride on a quad all by himself! It was AWESOME! He gunned it, had his first wreck as the quad flipped over on him, he got back up and gunned it again, at which point he did a 360 and then decided he was done! His dad was SO proud!

All in all, it was a great trip! I had my first experience riding the dunes and loved it! All I need to do now is rob a bank so I can buy myself a quad and a toy hauler! :)
