Sledding with Mommy!

It was one of those days where we needed to get out of the house, so Jackson and I bundled up to go get the mail.
I put him in his snowsuit and strapped him in before going outside. I dont know if you can see it, but there were definitely a few tears running down his cheek. He was getting tired and didn't like getting into the snowsuit. Plus he's very clingy lately after we left him with Grandma and Grandpa Eggs last week for two nights. Apparently he thought I was just going to strap him in the sled and leave him in the entry way.
Once we found some sidewalk that wasn't cleared, he loved sledding! It was much easier to pull his 20 lbs on snow than on cement.
Once we got to the mailboxes, we decided to take advantage of the park so I put him in one of the baby swings. He LOVED it. I think he was partially laughing at me because I had his pacifier in his mouth.
You can see his teeth! He has two on the bottom and one on top.
Isn't he a cutie?

Fun at the Cabin

Luke had the week off between Christmas and New Year's, so we decided to go to the cabin for some family time.
Jackson's wild hair!
Getting ready to go sledding!!
He loved it!
Checking out the snow and his crazy parents!!

Christms 2011: Part 1

We had a wonderful Christmas this year!!! It was a houseful - my parents, my brothers, Luke's mom & Barry, Luke's dad (of course!), and us. Luke even preached two Christmas Eve services at the church. I don't think Jackson truly knew what was going on, but he had fun playing with everyone and everything. He especially liked doing laps with Scott with his little walking cart.
As you can see he got lots of new toys but enjoyed the non-toys too!
And what Eggensperger Family gathering would be complete without craziness from Mark & Scott?
Every little boy needs a collection of Dinosaurs. This one is a Deinonychus. We saw it on Dinosaur Train a few weeks before Christmas. (I gotta start learning my dinosaur names!!) It is known for its "terrible claw" that is on its foot.
And the token family picture in front of the tree. We took like ten pictures and this was the best one. Jackson is apparently allergic to pineapple....it gave him a rash around his mouth, but he really liked it.
And our special gift to Bob - a Quilt! This pattern is called Bear Paw. I thought it was fitting since Bob is a (gulp!) Griz Fan.
