Cody the Builder

For Christmas, Cody got this very realistic tool set. He has been facinated with my dad's tools for months, so we needed to get him some substitutes. This day, my mom was painting her bathroom and Cody desperately wanted to help. Here's the solution. Cody "helping" MeMe "fix" her bathroom. He's so funny!

Love the diaper hanging out the back. How does that happen?
At least its not crack :)
Check out the tounge. He was "working" so hard!

More Birthday Fun

Jen already blogged about this, (like a month ago) but I thought I would add my pictures and comentary. For Chris' birthday, the Maggiore's treated us to one of our favorite food events...all you can eat pancakes at IHOP. We had a great time and the kids were very good. I love this picture of Erin and Cody!
This was obviously before the pancakes :)

These pictures are from The Jumping Monkey. This was the Jackson family's first trip here. We had such a great time! Thank you Erin for sharing this fun place with us! What a great idea for a birthday present, mom!

Future Fire People? I love how they are both looking opposite ways!
(Insert Car Sounds)

Playing House

My Favorite Picture!

I managed to get Ryan in a couple. He was a pro here and had little time to stop and smile for the camera :)

Ok, so I know it's been forever since I've blogged. I've missed Christmas, birthdays and new years. So I plan to make up for it tonight. Cody's in bed, Chris is at work and I'm in front of the computer. So here we go!
We had a great Christmas. Chris turned 30! I actually managed to surprise him with his gift. He had been really wanting a new recliner. (I "killed" his ugly blue one from his bachelor days) I was able to sneak it in the den after he went to bed with the help of my brother and father. He walked in the room and said "who is that for?" He was pretty happy.
Santa brought Cody a train table. I have it on very good authority that after a little trouble getting it together, Santa had a great time bringing Cody gifts for the first time ;)
I got an ipod and the nike+ for running. I love it. It tracks all sorts of stats during your run and tells you how far you have left, etc. It's so nice. Thanks Chris!
The day was full of family, food, and wrapping paper shreds all over the place. Just the way it should be!

Cody's 2nd Birthday
We did Cody's birthday very low key. Just family and a couple friends and pizza. It ended up being so much fun! We did a curious george theme for my "little monkey." :) His great-grandpa, Barry, made him a monkey cake.

Partied Out! One Tired Little Boy!


We got pictures done today. This is my favorite!
