Holiday fun so far

We had a really nice Thanksgiving as a family of 5 (that’s still crazy!)


Christmas Tree Farm 2018

Jackson and Maggie were more interested in the s’mores and playing hide and seek amongst the rows of trees than picking out the tree, but we got our first tree as a family of 5 (!).  It smells delightful and I have the perfect view from my favorite spot on the couch.


and then he turned 9!

Oh, Jackson, you’re getting so old!  I’m not even going to talk about how you’re halfway to 18…..not even going to talk about it.

We enjoyed our traditional birthday morning with you last week with nutella crepes and presents.

Gifts included a World of Warcraft history book and t-shirt, a minecraft lego set (from Maggie) and a minecraft game.  


That night we celebrated with Dashi (your first time!) in Durham and a cookies and cream cake (as requested)at the Cormier house.


Right now Jackson…

loves video games

loves his sisters (and all of his family) even more

typically comes home from school reporting a great day!

loves to play outside after school

does not like homework

likes to play legos while listening to diary of a wimpy kid cds in his room (and leaves the room without turning them off!)

is enjoying his new room

does y guides with Dad

is still our enthusiastic, sensitive, playful, caring, supportive, happy, kind boy.

You’re the best Jackson.  For real.  Its really amazing to watch you grow up and to get to enjoy bigger kid things with you.

fave photo friday

(This picture is actually from last Thursday at Maggie’s end of year picnic with her class.  I’m always a little sad when another year of preschool ends.  Maggie keeps asking if she’s going to school, I don’t think she understands the summer break concept very well!)

Mother’s Day Weekend 2018

It already feels like summer!  We had a nice weekend doing lots of nice weekend things.  Friday night pizza, first swim of the summer, a campout for the boys, movie night, Mother’s day, Meme’s birthday, and more swimming!

Happy birthday E! (A day late)

We love you E!  Can’t wait to celebrate you this weekend!
