Snow 2009

Breeana had lots of fun in the snow this weekend. She absolutely loved it. She just got to crawl and dig in it at our homestead, but at Nonny and Poppy's she got to sled. She has the cutest little laugh/scream while sledding down the hill!! I only have pics of our house. I'm gonna have to steal Nonny's memory card and get the sledding pics.

Let me come play too Sissy!!!!

Sarah Castor took our pictures about a week ago. She did an amazing job capturing my kiddos. I love them. Go to her blog to check out her favorites, which happened to be mine as well...

For Jaxxon

Born to early to gasp your first breath,
Held by your mommy as you drifted to rest.

12 ounces 10 1/4 inches of precious little boy,
Even in death your parents pride and joy.

You looked like your daddy from you head to your toes,
Except for your momma's cute little nose.

Though only here for a brief moment in time,
the memory of you lives on, in our hearts, in our minds.

Jaxxon Shane Allen
Born and met Jesus February 26, 2009

**This may show up on Ashley's blog...she was logged into blogger on my computer and I didn't know it when I created the post so it posted to her blog...I deleted it and logged into my blogger and redid it.

Random Pics From My IPhone

I haven't posted any pics in a while so here are more than a few!!

Jare Bear riding Sissy's bus (shh don't tell her!!)

Playing Dress Up!

Playing at the park.

Notice the snot pouring from his nose, can't see it? It is there!!!

Jare's little foot with the IV in it :(

This really does not show how BIG his lip got, it was HUGE

This is when it was about back to normal.

They switched the IV to his arm the day before we left. Why? I think to torture the little guy and his mommy. It was in his arm for like 15 hrs. I don't think 15 more hours in his foot would've mattered.

All better chillin' in the swing at the park...he likes it so much it lulled him to sleep!!!

Look at his hair in the pic above and then the next one, this was the 8th Haircut, one every month!!! Oh he is also scarfing Multi-Grain Cheerios his new fav!

Many Faces of Bree...

Just thought he looked so CUTE!

In Choir the kiddos do A Tootie Ta, a little song with movement, they love it. Here is Bree...she didn't know I was taking pics, or she wouldn't have done the motions. I love watching her!

I took Jarrett in for his follow up appointment for the Staph infection. Doc says his lip still has a small hard spot, but he is not worried about it. We are to finish his antibiotic out and put Bactroban in his nose 2 times a day for 5 days. FUN STUFF! I asked about him eating everything is site. Doc says that is normal since he has been so sick and stuff, his body needs the extra calories. He is back up to about 18 1/2 lbs. I think he is the smallest boy in the nursery his age!!!

No Pictures Tonight, Sorry!

So, I haven't posted in awhile. I just thought I would drop a few lines about what it going on.


*Jarrett got his 8th haircut today, I will post pics tomorrow, maybe!
*He is pulling up and cruising on/around everything.
*He is tougher than his sister was, he falls, roll, bumps and rarely makes a peep about it, but we all know sister is a bit of a DRAMA girl!!!
*Still no teeth, but that doesn't stop him from eating whatever whenever. He is always hungry. Yesterday at Nonny's he ate some of his UNCLE NANE'S yummy steak and loved it. (They were tiny pieces) I got him gerber graduates pasta pick ups today and he loves them. BREE NEVER AND STILL DOESN'T EAT MUCH, so this having to feed my child 3 meals, bottles, and snacks is new to me.
*He is doing better with not being held so much after being held for 84+ hours in the hospital a week ago.
*He is the sweetest, orneriest, cutest, little cuddle bug and I love him to pieces!!!


*Has discovered the word "why?" and uses it ALL THE TIME!!!!
*Is going through a "I wanna wear dresses stage" we only have like 2 that aren't fancy church dresses.
*Loves play-doh right now, she wakes up asking to do play-doh.
*Doesn't want to sleep in her own bed, prefers snuggling up to mommy and daddy! Just a little phase she goes through a few days each month it seems. She won't want to cuddle us for long, so we are just enjoying it.
*Sings the "Little Einsteins" all day long, it is sooooo CUTE!
*She moved up to the 3 year old class in SS. She told me Sunday when I asked if she had fun "I cried for you and daddy a little"
*We are having a little issue with her mouth. She likes to run it a little TOO much.


As most of you probably know Shane and Ashley had their baby, Jaxxon Shane, on Feb 26, and he left us for Heaven shortly after. I didn't get to hold my little Nephew, but he has a huge place in my heart and always will. When I look at my babies, I wonder what he would have been like and how he and Jarrett would have been the best of friends. I have a little onsie I bought him hanging in my kitchen, I put it there to remember to take it to Ashley in Glenpool while she was on bed rest. I haven't taken it down and don't know when I will, it's my little reminder of him. I don't understand why he couldn't stay with us, and I probably never will, but my Father in Heaven is perfect and nothing happens without his knowledge. Shane and Ashley are so strong. I am not sure anyone can know how to handle, or how they would handle a situation until presented with it, and I think they are amazing. Breeana still asks about Baby Jaxx. She and Ashley have talked about him. I am not sure how much she understands. I have shown her his pictures and told her he had to go live in Heaven. At the grave I explained that we put his little body there, but he is in Heaven and the spot he is buried is just so we can remember him. She still "writes" his name, and that is fine with me. I don't want her to forget him.


On a different note, Mom, Ashley, the kids and I are headed to either ENID or OKC tomorrow to have a little fun together. Hope everyone has a great week!
