Celebrating and Other News

Jason and I had a great anniversary! It is hard to believe that we have actually been married for 9 years. What is even harder to believe is that Jason and I went on our first date 13 years ago. I feel so blessed to have Jason as my best friend and husband.

On our actual anniversary, Jason and I ate at a local Italian restaurant. My friend, Amy, kept all 3 kids for us. We truly enjoyed a delicious meal and dessert.


Jason and I picked up the kids from school a little early on Friday and headed up to meet my dad in Columbia. My parents took Abby Kate, Joshua and Jackson to the Wilson County Fair. They all had a BLAST!!! They did not get home till near midnight! Jason and I enjoyed dinner at Five Guys and then we headed over to the new theater to watch Batman. Jason had already seen it 2 times, but was more than willing to see it a 3rd time with me. I really enjoyed it and afterwards we walked around and ended up at Barnes and Noble. We drank some coffee (mine was decaf, seeing as how it was 10:00 PM) and read some magazines until the store closed. Saturday morning we treated ourselves to breakfast and then did a little shopping. We headed back up to Columbia to pick up the kids and then headed home to get everyone in bed. Jason and I had the best time this weekend!

Jackson is now walking. He has been taking "steps" since he turned one, but now he is what I would really call walking.

And he is in to everything!!!

Jackson is my little monkey! Every time I see a monkey, it reminds me of my little guy.

He climbs everything!

His latest mission - the kitchen table! Yes, he is only 14 months old, but he can pull the chair out from under the table, climb up in the chair and sit, then he can stand in the chair and last but not least, he can climb on top of the table!!!!

Someone please help!!!!

I'm glad ya'll got to have some time to yourselves to celebrate together. Nine years is definitely a cause for celebration! :) I'm sure the kids had a great time with their grandparents, too.

I had a great time on our anniversary date! I think Olive Garden may have some competition now!

You're right; Jackson is a little monkey. He's climbing everywhere! It's like he's Spider-Man or something.

I'm so glad you are my sister in law and that Jason has you for his wife. I don't think our parents could have hand picked a more suited mate for Jason. What a blessing!
