Love them.



It's so hard getting kids to look at the camera at the same time...but we tried! Our babies are getting so big, it happens so quickly! Hayden is 7 1/2 months and Benjamin's 2 1/2...and they are a lot of fun. Hayden's the only infant I know that can growl and Benjamin the only toddler I know that can recite all the lyrics to Mary Poppins. They keep us laughing! I just love how unique their little personalities are thus far-it's such a joy to see them grow and discover new things each day!

Fall 2008



I know, I know....it's been a ridiculously long time since I've posted anything on this blog! Even after I promised to be better at it...but what can I say, life's been busy! A quick recap: We (I) delivered a very healthy little girl on August 25th, 2008. Hayden Elizabeth Jones was born weighing 9 lbs and 8 oz. Very healthy indeed! Benjamin turned two on September 21, 2008. We're now learning how to do life with two little ones. It's a challenge, a joy, and completely frustrating all at the same time! Those kiddos have wonderfully changed our lives. Nathan is finishing up his LAST two classes at DTS!!! Praise the Lord! Our hope is to move back to Missouri once he's finished (Lord willing we sell our house!). That's our life thus far. Here are some new pics to enjoy.

Happy Easter





We went to an Easter Egg hunt in Rowlett, TX! Benjamin was a ham and enjoyed every minute of sitting with the Easter Bunny. Picking up Easter eggs didn't appeal too much, but climbing in a nearby tree made his day! I'm not sure who was more excited about the hunt-the parents or kids! I was shocked at how grabby some of those moms and dads were with the eggs!

Barney

videoPublish Post
Can you hear how loud it was?!!
Riding the Carousel. He got very animated on this ride, it was hysterical to watch him each time he came around!

Chuck E Cheese's


Ok, so Benjamin experienced his first time at good ole' Chuck E Cheese's! We all needed a day out and Nathan & I had some fond memories of "Show Biz" as kids...so we thought Ben needed the experience as well. We got there about 4:45 on a Saturday afternoon, and were very thankful we got there early! The only table available was in the toddler zone, perfect for us! Benjamin had a great time climbing up and down the jungle gym, going down the slide, and putting tokens in the machines! He'd ride this silly Barney train and when it was finished he say, "again, again"!I have never seen a place so crowded, but we all had about an 1 & 45 minutes worth of family fun!!! I have to say, it's not like it used to be...they sure don't give you as many tickets as they used to for skee-ball.

Cheese!

My sister's boyfriend Lyle, is an amazing photographer. He happened to have some of his equipment with him and set it up in my parents garage to take some random shots...and well, we set Benjamin on the stool and the first thing he said was, "Cheese" and began clapping. He's a ham who apparently likes being photographed.

Santa Baby


Everybody needs to snuggle up with Santa.

Santa Who?



We had some problems getting to see Santa this year, so we had to make do with a stuffed one my mom had on her front porch. This picture turned out pretty cute, we'll try again next year...but not at Metro North Mall!

We were in Kansas City visiting Nathan's family for Christmas and were lucky enough to get some snow! These pictures are of Benjamin's first time "playing" in the snow. I personally think the best part is his snowsuit...very cute. He couldn't move very much but that made it all the funnier.

Baby Jones #2


I'll try and be more diligent about keeping this blog updated with recent pictures and information! Our latest news is that we're expecting again! I'm 14 weeks pregnant and have been nauseated since day one! Although, on a positive note, I'm finally off the nausea medicine!!! This kiddo is due August 22, 2008-we're probably crazy having them this close together...guess we'll wait and see. They will be 23 months apart! I'm thinking we'll find out this baby's gender because I like to plan ahead! While I'm rooting for a girl, we'd be equally happy with a healthy baby boy. Four more weeks and we'll let you know. :)


Happy Halloween! He loved this dragon costume! Unfortunately, I had to work on Halloween. Nathan and some friends from church took the kids out-Benjamin was the youngest-but apparently caught on quickly. Nathan said he had a hard time prying the candy he collected out of his hand! Like we were really going to let him eat it!

Benjamin turns a year old!

He could've cared less about Thomas the Train Engine...but we thought the cake was cute!

Kota's eyeing that cake!

Okay, It has been ridiculously long since I last posted anything. Life has just gotten so busy! Benjamin is now 17 months old...he's into everything, talking up a storm, and a tremendous joy to us! We're having so much fun with him, it's hard to believe he's not such a little baby anymore. This picture is of his first haircut....I love that dimple.
