Jackson's announcement

I didn't have enough to send one to everyone, so I thought I'd post it here!

Mysterious money

To the person who kept aiming airplanes made of $1 bills to us at the Jazz game last night, thank you! Either you have incredible aim to land these planes on our laps on three separate occasions, or it is the coincidence of the century. Either way, you helped pay for our parking so muchas gracias.

Actually though... I'm a little freaked out by it. I kept looking around to see who you were, but couldn't figure it out. I kept thinking it would have to be someone we know because who in their right mind makes paper airplanes out of money and just throws it away? Then again, who in the world has the skill to land these in our laps three times? After the second plane I was watching to see if it was happening to other people also-- the only planes I saw were the ones that landed on us. Hmmm...

Whatever the explanation, could you maybe next time make the planes out of $100 bills? It's all about the Benjamins baby!
P.S. The game was awesome-- Celtics were up almost the entire game until the end when the Jazz pulled it off!

Valentines & Presidents Day weekend

Hope everyone had a happy Valentines Day. We headed up to Idaho Falls for the long weekend and had a great time hanging with the fam. I surprised Sean with tickets to the Jazz vs. Celtics game tomorrow night, so that is how we're spending Valentines this year!

It was a lot of fun going home and showing Jackson off to everyone. He met some cousins and we paid a visit to my grandma.

I was worried he wouldn't sleep well while we were away from home, but he was a champ. We got through the entire weekend without any major meltdowns. My mother-in-law surprised me by telling me I could pick out a new clock for my birthday from Mini Bazaar. Pretty much the same thing as letting a kid loose in a candy store :) I picked out this one and I absolutely love it:

Isn't it great? I know you can't tell from this picture, but it is big! We also brought this home:

Sean for some reason has always wanted a Bonsai tree. His parents got him this one for his birthday and it is really cool. I thought Bonsai trees were always puny, but this one has some girth to it! I am very excited because supposedly it produces little white flowers throughout the year. I'm also terrified I'm going to kill it since I kill everything that's green.

Thought I'd throw this picture in too because I think it is so cute:

I went to check on him the other day when he was napping and this is how I found him. The little stud holds in his own pacifier!

Well, it's official-- I'm closer to 30 than 20 now. I don't know how I feel about that, but I did have a fabulous birthday!

The day started off with Sean making me an awesome breakfast. I tease him sometimes about hating to cook, but I'll tell you what, he has skills (he just chooses not to use them very often!). I know of at least two things he can make better than me: grilled cheese sandwiches and french toast. 

Sean gave me a really cool cake stand for my birthday. I have been wanting one for a long time, and he chose one from Williams Sonoma that also turns into a punch bowl when you flip it over. I love it! My cakes will look so much cooler now. He also surprised me later in the day with a bracelet he picked out from this little local boutique I love. I love surprises! He did a good job :)

I spent most of the day just hanging out with Jackson and got a visit from my friend Heidi and her sweet girls. They brought me goodies and a pretty flower! I also spent a lot of time on the phone talking to friends and family-- one of my favorite things about birthdays. 

My sister offered to babysit so Sean and I could go out to dinner. We went to Cheesecake Factory which is never a bad decision. We ordered an appetizer we hadn't tried before called "buffalo blasts" and they were so dang good and also probably one of the worst possible things for your body. We were so full after our meals that we didn't even order cheesecake-- I know, blasphemy, but before you judge let me just say that we did have leftover ice cream cake at home!

It was kinda like this...

The other day I was changing Jackson and it turned into a fiasco! He's peed on me a few times while changing him, but I'm usually quick to grab the diaper before it gets too out of hand. Well, this time things got HORRIBLY out of hand! I'm grabbing the diaper out of the top drawer of his changing dresser and when I look up, my little man is peeing up a storm, straight into the air (I must say, the height was impressive). When I hurried to try and difuse the bomb, the spray turned toward the window and started soaking the blinds. At this point I am laughing because it really was funny. I start grabbing some wipes when I hear Jackson grunt... I am still trying to wrap my head around what happened next. I don't know how the dude did it, but he shot what I will term a "poop bomb" an impossible distance! There was poop from the top of the closet door to the bottom of the door and carpet. Here is a picture to illustrate just how far of a distance this is:

I stood there dumbfounded for a minute because it was unbelievable! After the whole ordeal I felt like Ron Burgandy in Anchorman when he is talking to his dog Baxter and says, "You ate the whole wheel of cheese? How'd you do that? I'm not even mad... that's amazing."
