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.
