Happy Birthday Jackson

My sweet Jackson turned 13 today. I remember Reyno driving me to the hospital that morning and being so excited to meet our baby boy.
Jackson, I love you more than words can express. You have such a kind heart and you are truly the sweetest person. You are growing up so fast and I have loved watching you grow into a wonderful young man. I love you with all of my heart.

Honor Society

Not surprising to anyone who reads this, but I am a month late with this post. In February both kids were inducted into their schools Honor Society. And with two snow date changes, both events ended up being on the same night, at the same time in two different places!! Reyno went with Jackson and I was with Marisa. It was a crazy night, but very special.

Mom and dad with the newly elected secretary of NHS!

Reyno and I are beyond proud!!! We are very blessed with two amazing kids!!

Snow, Snow and More Snow!

I guess this post will be a wrap up of January. Not much happened other than one snow storm after another. I have never seen so much snow in my life. I think it's some kind of record. Not surprising that my first winter back in NY that they would have record breaking snow!!!
The kids have had SIX snow days this past month. They are even sick of it. When I went in their rooms this morning to let them know they had another snow day, they both groaned. Now on top of the snow we have three inches of solid ice!!
I'm not sure we are going to survive this!! How many months til summer????

December Recap

Yes I do realize that it is the end of January and I am just now posting about December. I thought about just ignoring the whole month, but I know someday I will want to look back and remember what a fun month this was

The month started off with the Army/Navy gala in Philly.

Reyno and I on the trolley headed to the gala

Reyno ready for the long day ahead

The kids on the streets of Philly. We all fell in love with this city.

This is a terrible picture of me, but I was so happy to run into my cousin John that I had to post it. We hadn't seen each other in 17 years!!!

Kids at The Melting Pot after the game. Sadly we lost, but had a fun dinner.

A few weeks later....

Merry Christmas!!!!

After we opened presents and ate brunch, we hopped on a plane and headed for Texas!!

Army was playing in its first bowl game in thirteen years and it just so happened to be in Dallas!!

Shopping with some friends. They all wanted boots from Texas!

Jackson and Marisa spent some time with old friends

And got lots of cuddle time with Madeline!!!!

Group shot of the kids at the game

It was a fast but fun week and in Dallas and I enjoyed seeing family and friends. I was a little ready to be back in my house, unfortunately this is what we came home to...

It hasn't stopped snowing since!!!!!!!!!!!

I hoping to be a better blogger this year. We have many fun things ahead of us that I would like to remember when I'm old!! :)
