Our big tough firemen!

We had a big fire in Massena today and here are our firemen after they returned from battling the blaze. The little one had trouble hanging on to the hoses, he just drooled a lot to put out the fire. Aren't they the most handsome firemen???

Some new pictures

I got to babysit today and so I thought I had better get some pictures of Jordan. The first two are actually from the other night when Jordan was here. Rachel decided to get a few of me with Jordan. There were some others taken but I wasn't smiling. The other two were from today. Jordan was very smiley today. The one was while I was holding him and the other was on the "Happy Hippo".

This is one of the times he was punching me.
What an interesting look he is giving me!

I know it's been awhile!

I know it has been a little while since I have posted anything here, but there hasn't been a lot of anything happening. Jeffrey got laid off from his job right after New Year's Day, so I haven't been babysitting on my day off. They have been here to visit but I usually forget to take any pictures. Today Tina and Jeffrey came for supper and then they went grocery shopping at "Hannaford" so Rachel said she would keep Jordan. As you can see, he went to sleep and so the two of them just sat relaxing in the chair. This should keep everyone happy for a while. A picture and a post to keep you informed. Anyway, Jordan is cuter than ever and just as sweet as his grandparents, all four of them! Later!

Jordan is eating cereal!

Tonight Jeffrey Jr. and Justin went to Ottawa to see the Carolina Hurricanes and the Ottawa Senators play hockey
This was Jeffrey and Tina's Christmas and birthday presents to Justin. Soooo, Tina and Jordan are here with us. Tina fed Jordan cereal last night and so we got the pictures of her feeding him tonight. He actually does really good. Notice his bib? He really is the boss, he calls the shots and we all hop to his cries. He is a real sweet baby and we all love him very much. Tomorrow he will be 3 months old! He is so cuddly and smiles and laughs and puts on a real show sometimes.

Pictures of Jordan

Here are some pictures that Rachel and I took while Jordan spent some time with us on Saturday. Hope you enjoy!

Justin's 21st birthday!

Today is Justin's 21st birthday. We are very proud of him. He is really a great "kid" and we love having him at home. He returned today from Pennsylvania where he was visiting his sweet girlfriend, Stacy. Justin is planning on taking the NY State Troopers exam on the 26th of this month. I wanted to post some pictures of him here but I don't really have any of just him on digital camera. I have some that I will try to post soon that I will have to scan and save on the computer.

Our Visitors this weekend

We had some company for part of the weekend. Jordan and his parents came and stayed because Tina was working in Massena on Saturday. We were happy that they were here. Saturday evening Rachel and I took Jordan shopping at the mall. He fell asleep while we were shopping. I took more pictures and will probably post more tomorrow evening. Jordan and Grandma sharing a special moment in the picture.

No Snow again!

As you can see, we have had some unusually warm weather here in the North Country. We had several days of 40 and 50 degree above zero weather and it melted all of our snow. I took these picture this morning before I went to work. I was amazed at how green the grass was under the snow but more amazing is "where did all the snow go?" As you can see our mailbox is no longer buried in the snow either. They are calling for snow/sleet/freezing rain possibly tonight or in the morning but 40 by afternoon. It will get cold again, but we are almost half way through January.
Jordan is coming for a visit tomorrow. I will try to get some new pictures to post.

Snow again!

This is our house buried under a lot of snow. Justin's girlfriend, Stacy, came to visit this weekend. My sister Chris was here for part of the weekend too. We really got dumped on with the snow. Justin and Stacy went snowboarding on Monday and they had fresh snow for that, and then we got another storm on Tuesday. I guess we are in for an old fashioned winter. As I write this the temp is at -1. It is cold.
Here is what you can see of our mailbox. We have had a lot of snow this year already. We still got several months of winter left, I don't know what we will do with it all if we get a lot more.

This is the spot where Stacy's car was sitting during the snow storm we got on New Year's Day. We got quite a bit of snow and Stacy, Justin, and I shoveled the driveway. It was a lot of work.

Jordan and the Happy Hippo!

Jordan got this play mat for Christmas. I was babysitting today and had him laying on the Happy Hippo. He was content for a while to lay there and reach for the toys and look at himself in the little mirror.
