Sweet Home Alabama

Jackson made his first trip down to Alabama this weekend!! Yeah! Mama loves showing him off. We were able to leave Thursday night because Brent's classes were canceled for Good Friday. We made it the whole way down without stopping for Jackson to eat which I was happy about. We have such a strong guy.

Here is Jackson with g'ma and uncle lance. Doesn't Lance look great! He volunteered to baby-sit for us Friday night but we were all too exhausted to leave. I took this picture because I thought it was so cute with the two grandparents and baby but wait.... I think Dad's watching TV!


Three of "my" young women now have babies. This is Sherry (Largin) Lake, with her baby "Deuce", Mary (Jones) Lagrone with Drew and me. Now we know we have others that will be trailing us sooner rather than later and we can't wait to add more to this picture!!
Now once Jackson got Dad's attention by crying dad was great to pick him up and sing his two favorite songs, "Take me out to the ballgame" and "Yeah Alabama" which both worked like a charm. I've even used them several times since we got home.
All in all the trip was fantastic. I'll load another picture of two of when we stopped by great-grandpa's house on the way up.

Hey Natalie,
It was great to hear from you. I love checking out your blog, just about everyday. You have a cute little boy....I do have to say that some of those pictures look so much like Brent when he was that age. Of course, there's other pictures that look like you too (I just don't know what you looked like when you were a baby). Whatever the case, he's a cute little fella. Mike and I are doing really well. We LOVE married life. It's the best decision I've ever made....to marry Mike that is.

Well, I hope you and Brent are doing well. Tell Brent I said hi.

Love,
amber

This was a great Easter weekend! I do think Dad is watching Bullet in this picture. Bullet is just now recovering from having to share the spotlight!
Amber, good to hear from you (in a 'round about way). Maybe someday I can meet your Mike!
Love to all, Grandma Jan

It was good to see you Sunday. Your mom has to be one of the proudest grandma's I have ever seen! I am glad you got to spend some time with Sherry and Mary!
