Getting ready to update the blog again!

Time just has a way of flying by us. It doesn't really seem that long ago that I posted to my blog but it is. I have a few extra hours this week and I will be posting some Thanksgiving pictures and I will also post a few of our Christmas decorations. Our son, Justin, will be home for Christmas and we are very excited about him coming home. Keep a watch and by the end of the week there will be some new posts.

Jordan spinning like a top

Nanny didn't feel too good today, so after church tonight, Jordan and his parents came to see her. Jordan was spinning around and making himself dizzy and then falling down. I took these pictures with the old "dinosaur" camera.

He would hold his hands way out and just start going around.

Then it would be time to fall down. Then it was time to start all over again.

Link to pictures that we have taken recently

Here is the link to my web album that has some pictures that we have taken recently.

Happy Halloween!

Okay, I'm back! Here are some pictures of Jordan and his Halloween costume. He is wearing his Air Force ABU. He was really hoping his Uncle Justin would have been home so that they could have been dressed alike, but that wasn't to be. He only went to a few of his neighbors homes and then came to Nanny and Papa's house before church. He wanted me to make sure and get a picture of his basket full of candy. There are also some pictures of the jack o lanterns that his father and mother carved. Can you guess which one is Jordan's???
Anyway, enjoy these and I will be adding a lot more pictures in the next couple of days.

Jordan and Nanny blowing bubbles!

Jeffrey, Tina, and Jordan came over on Tuesday evening. Jordan wanted to blow bubbles, so he and Nanny had some fun. Enjoy the pictures.

Youth Rally, Saturday, September 11, 2010

We had our first youth rally of the season at Whalen Park along the St. Lawrence River. The pictures loaded backwards, so the first is our speaker, Rev. Joe Krohn, from our Kingston, Ontario church, the next three pictures are of the group as we gathered for lunch, and the last is the ship that was passing by when we got there. It was the only ship we saw while we were there. It was a beautiful sunny day. The little kids had fun rolling down the hill by the pavillion.

Just a visit to Jeffrey and Tina's house.

Thursday evening we went over to Jeffrey and Tina's house. Jordan was showing us how he can blow this little horn.

Here he and Nanny are spending some time together.

Jeffrey bought some bagpipes and he was trying to get them to work right. Sometimes the reeds are not real cooperative. He thinks that we were making fun of him, but I really think that it is going to be cool when he can play them. I like the sound of bagpipes.

Jordan sitting on his bed. It took much persuasion to get him to do this.

These are some "Thomas and Friends" plaques that Tina got for Jordan's room. He knows them all by name.

Labor Day weekend

These first three pictures are from Monday, Labor Day. Esther, Marilyn and Randy, Grandpa Steve, Donnie, Jeffrey, Tina, Jordan, Tandy and Andrew all were here for our pizza, subs, and chip party. This first picture here was of Nanny and Aunt Esther doing a puzzle.

Jordan and Aunt Esther were playing ball.

These next few were taken on Sunday night after church. Jeffrey and Tina and Jordan came over to the house. Aunt Chris was here for the weekend, but left Monday during the day. I was working.

Tina just loves to have her picture taken, can't you tell.

The rest of the pictures were taken Friday night. Jordan got a puzzle and a "Thomas" trainset with a few blocks to build with. He and Aunt Chris played with that a lot and also played ball a lot.

Duplicate picture, but I don't want to take the risk of losing all of the pictures and starting this all over again.

Here he is playing with the Thomas set.

He really loves Chris.

Has poor Aunt Chris worn right out.

Mathias Joseph Straight

Yesterday, Rachel and I went to Burlington, VT, to see little Mathias. He was born on August 9th and weighted 3 lbs, 9 oz. He was born 10 weeks early. He is out of the NICU and into a transitional unit now. Donnie and Wendy are just so happy and proud of their little guy.

While we were there, he got a little fussy so they got him out for them to hold and calm him down. I think the whole time he was just starting to get hungry.
