Lucas and the lawn mower

Lucas loves mowing the lawn or any yard work there is. If grandpa or daddy are working in the yard he is right there. He takes it very serious if any of us laugh or think its "cute" he shoots us a look you wouldnt believe. Jackson helps here and there but he would rather play catch or kick the ball around. So most of this video is of Luke. We did go up north some of the pictures/video is of up north I will do
a seperate video of their first memorial weekend up north. I have some stories about that too. Wanted to get this in because it is a true passion of Lucas.

Have a nice memorial weekend everyone

I want to say a special thank you to some special people who
are brave and selfless and we will never be able to thank
them enough for all they do and have done for our country.

Mary Egesdal my sister in law who is now serving in Afghanistan
My uncle Danny Garner who served in Vietnam
My uncle John Needham who served in Vietnam. He is no longer with us
but his spirit always will be.
Zacs good friend Jeremy has both of his brothers serving in Iraq
Jason Busch
Josh Busch
My good friend Missys husband Pat who served in Iraq
Please keep all of them and the friends they lost in your prayers.
All of these people I have listed have lost friends, people they loved and cared about through all of this I just didnt want them to think we forgot and that we
remember this isnt just a 3 day weekend its so much more.

Take care everyone

Just some quick updates on the boys

Jackson is getting molars and not real happy about that. You can tell
he is hurting. Lucas has come out of his shell in a HUGE way. That kid
has more spunk than any child i have ever seen. I have a feeling he is
going to give me a run for my money. when he wants something the entire
house knows it. They love playing the the sandbox and going up a slide.
going down is okay but going up is the fun part for them. They love to
climb the ladder. Jacksons fav things are Dogs, (any animal really)
and playing catch and he actually plays catch he can throw, kick and catch a ball any ball.. its amazing.
Lucas loves food and music just like his big brother zac. He will dance to
anything and everything including the theme song to little house
on the prairie and the beginning of the dr phil show. ( just a quick note zac doesnt dance to little house on the prairie or dr phil he just loves music) wanted to clear that up :) My cousin Chris bought him a
Fridge dj its a little radio thing that plays music. That is one of his fav toys.
He will eat anything and everything. He loves to eat.
Both the boys fav food is for sure with out a doubt PIZZA!!
The only way I am going to survive this summer is if we put a fence in the backyard
all they want to do is head for the street. Playing outside isnt even really fun anymore they just want to run in the road. So our big dream is to put a fence up
everyone cross your fingers that we make it happen.

Hope everyone is having a great spring. I never see comments so i am not sure
if anyone is even reading these anymore. So if anyone has time to leave a comment
i would be soooo thrilled.

Jacksons hair cut day and rasta hats

Okay I am retyping this and I added pictures.

The slide show is of Derek and Heather (Friends of the family) and their little girls Izzy and Derda. Derek cuts the boys hair and he is also Jacksons new best friend. Jackson made Derek sit by him at supper and wouldnt let him out of his sight. Jackson loved Derek but hates the clipper. So
Derek had his work cut out for him, and i am not kidding. As soon as we turned that thing on Jack went nuts. Heather and Derek are seriously 2 of the
nicest people and were so good with the boys and to put up with jackson and that clippers thing as long as they did GOD BLESS THEM BOTH!!!! The boys absolutely love
their girls too. They are the sweetest and prettiest little girls.
We decided to wait to do Lucas another day. But Derek thought it would be funny
to puff up Lukes little fro and give him a part. It was so funny!!!
there are some pictures of that too.

and to my total shock we told the boys to say good bye to the girls and Jackson
walked right up to both of them and gave them a kiss!!!.. now i have been trying to
get kisses from that little stinker for ever i have even tried bribes no one and i mean no one gets a kiss from jackson... whats up with that????

both the boys walked right up and tried to kiss them.. no one even told them to...
yikes.. sorry heather and derek i will have to make sure to watch those boys around your girls......

THank you so much Nana for setting that all up and feeding us
And thank you Derek for putting up with all the screaming hopefully
jackson will some day grow to love the clippers..and thank you heather
so much for all your help.. You guys are awesome!!!

There are a couple pictures of the boys in their Rasta hats their auntie Shari
made for them.. they LOVE those hats but i cant keep them still enough to get
their pictures with them... Our goal was to bring them somewhere for pictures
with the hats.. havent gotten in yet..

I put in a little reggae music to go with the rasta hats...:)

Last picture is of Jackson with his new hair cut
