We LOVE Razorback football. This year we bought a tailgate pass for the home games. We tailgate with a large group at Pratt Place Barn in Fayetteville. It's beautiful and it has real toilets!! We don't have season tickets so we buy them at the stadium. This time Abbi and I sat across the stadium from Brandon and Jackson. We were both lucky enough to sit close to friends.
We took a trip to Dardanelle to throw Brandon's Grandma a suprise 75th birthday party. It was a perfect weekend. Abbi and Jackson love going to Aunt Carla, Uncle Tom, and Granny's. They play with the cows, gather eggs from the chickens, run from roosters and help Aunt Carla cook. We are always treated to a traditional Sunday morning breakfast. Eggs fresh from the chickens, homemade biscuits with gravy and Abbi's favorite chocolate gravy. Here are some pics from Abbi and Jackson cooking with Aunt Carla.
Bob the Builder doesn't have anything on Jackson the Builder. We went to a local tool store shopping with Brandon and Jackson found his very own tool set. We couldn't get home soon enough for Jackson to try it on. We made a stop at Walmart on the way home. This is how Jackson avoids the dangers of shopping at Walmart.
Once we got home it was time to get in full gear, minus pants of course. Doesn't everyone wear a tool belt without pants?
Mexican Mallory or Mexican with Mallory. Abbi and Jackson love their Aunt Mal aka Mawory. We try to get together with family as often as we can. Brandon and I want to make sure the kids make memories to last a lifetime. It's usually the little things that they remember the most. Like sharing rice and cheese dip at our favorite Mexican restaurant with their favorite Aunt Mal.
I absolutely know I will pay for this when Jackson gets older but it was too cute not to commemorate. Jackson playing games on the iTouch while going potty. He is learning the fine art of multi-tasking at a young age.
I am very blessed to have a wonderful immediate and extended family. Brandon and I have been married for 12 years and have 2 wonderful children. Abbi is 11 and Jackson is 3. Brandon and I always knew that we wanted to have kids and settled on 1. Along came Abbi... 8 years later surprise... along came Jackson. I can honestly say our family is now complete. Brandon and I are thankful everyday for each other and for healthy and happy kiddos. Brandon is the Operations Manager for one of Walmart's Distribution Centers and I am a Sales Analyst for the Pepsi Warehouse and DSD Beverages Sam's Club Team. We live in Northwest Arkansas and love it. We are blessed to have my sister, my parents, and my maternal grandparents, all within 20 minutes of us and not far down the Mountains are Brandon's family. Life is Good!
