Potato Jack "The Ambush" Pt 2

Potato Jack "The Ambush" Pt 1

Every year Todd has a potato bar fundraiser for the Youth Group. For the last 3 years he has put together these little "ads" for it. He uses kids from the Youth Group to "act" in it and he stars as "Potato Jack". This is part one of Potato Jack's adventure for this year :)!

Kissin' ?!?!?

O hasn't quite mastered the placement or techniques of kissing, but it's sure funny watching and experiencing his version :)!

Quick Update

Good news, good news...Owen's ears are getting better! For the last few months we have been taking him to a chiropractor in hopes that his ear infections would go away and we could avoid tubes. This past Wednesday we got a great report saying they are looking pretty good! Hooray, an answer to many prayers! As for walking, he is now standing quite a few times a day for about 10 seconds or so but not more than a couple steps. He bent down to pick up a book while standing by himself. Problem is he has no idea he's doing it. Yesterday we went to the little mall playground and he went up some steps of a slide/tunnel thing and by the time I got to the other side (less than 2 seconds) he'd already started on his way down...head first of course! Don't worry I caught him ...I'm not that slow :)! Let's see what else...Salina now has a Kohl's...more options is always nice ;). And we got a Freddy's Frozen Custard....hooray! Todd and I stood in line for 1 hour to get free, yes free food and frozen custard....they were training the staff! It was a huge highlight of my week! Other than that just looking forward to the good weather staying, and Owen's big 1st birthday!

Meeting in the middle! Gramps, Grammy and Uncle Kyle came from western Kansas and Uncle Eric, Aunt Andrea and cousin Brayden came from eastern Kansas. It was a beautiful day and good times were had by all!

Hi Everyone! Just wanted to do a quick update and post a few pics that Grandma got. Todd has started his trek to becoming a deacon in the Methodist church. It'll take approximately three years and for those of you who want to know what it means...Todd says, "I'll be able to marry and bury". He also is keeping busy with work, Owen and me! As for me, I'm still enjoying being at home with Owen. We've really enjoyed the great weather in February getting out for walks and exploring a little. I'm pretty convinced that Owen's going to be an "outdoors" man :). Todd and I attended a simulcast called "Focus on Marriage" this past Saturday. It was a day well spent, the speakers were great and we also got to meet and chat with lots of people. And now for the little guy. He is unfortunately still fighting an ear infection, but we have faith that he will be healed. Today he is getting his two front teeth in...ouch! As for the walking lastnight he took another couple steps, but nothing that I would call all out walking. I think the ear infection messes with his balance...that's my professional medical opinion of course :)! Oh, and you might not be able to tell, but he IS getting more hair :)! He's almost 10 months old, just two short months til the big year...hard to believe. Speaking of Owen...I hear him waking up....gotta go!
