All posts in jackson at play

durham day

We were lucky enough to spend the day in durham with Jean and the kiddos.  We went to the Eno river (first time for us) and then spent the rest of the afternoon at Jean’s.  Thankful for these summer days (and places to cool off).

 

 

My big sister spoils me in many ways.

She feeds me and my kids and even fulfills my pregnancy cravings (today: caprese salad and hamburger sliders with sauteed onions and loads of mustard).

The other night before bed, the kids were playing so sweetly with each other.  They were very focused on their writing.

lately

with the shorter days and lower temps we have been in the house more.  (currently on day 2 of home sick with jackson as well)  while i do miss being outside with the kids more after school we have gotten some play time in and some cozy days.

for our friday movie night i made my kids hot chocolate with marshmallows in mugs i had growing up.  i could have just given them the marshmallows, that was all they were really interested in!

christmas movies

ive been letting maggie practice with kid scissors.  pieces of paper everywhere…

weekend in high point

we are getting ready for a really fun weekend, but first i want to remember what we did last weekend!  i couldn’t even remember the last time i had been to my parents’ house and since the office was closed for moving i took the opportunity to visit high point.  we left right after school on friday.  we helped decorate the tree, ate lots of treats, saw Grandmommy, and visited old salem!  mom and dad spoiled as….. as usual.

it was fun to take the kids to old salem, i always liked going and i had been wanting to take them at christmas time.  we had a great time.  mom and dad treated us to a wonderful lunch at the tavern and we loaded up on treats at the bakery.  my kids ask A LOT of questions.  they loved running in the town square.

it was special to stop by the college and academy where grandmommy attended in the 1930s (and jean in 1996 🙂

 

thanks mom and dad, we love you!
