3 Years

That's how long I've been a mommy and Jon has been a daddy, wow that time has gone so very fast and now we are parents to 4 beautiful kids. Tonight at 11:18 and 11:20 p.m. Jackson and Joel will officially be 3 years old but we're celebrating all day, I think a zoo trip for mama and the kids are in order! They amaze us every single day and are turning into such little boys. At 3 years old Jackson you are the ring leader of the group, you are a little mother hen to your brother and your sisters and are always concerned about them and looking out for them. The bond you have with your brother grows stronger everyday and I just love watching you interact and talk to each other sometimes in your own language. You are learning the ABC's song, love to imagine and dream up train games with your brother. Joel at 3 years old you are more of a watcher, you like to sit back and see how its done and then you jump right in. When asked you say that Jackson is your best friend (and Jackson says you are his). Joel you are such a lover and give the biggest hugs and kisses to your mama and I just love it. When asked you can pick out any letter and when asked about preschool you say you are excited (for now). Jackson and Joel you both love to read books and have them read to you, you love it when your daddy tells you stories and you love to sit and snuggle on the couch with both of us and watch a movie. You both are so very special to us and we love you two more than anything. You guys bring so much joy into our lives, happy 3rd birthday to you both!

I took the boys' 3 year pictures a few weeks ago at some train tracks and an old building and then we found an old steam engine to take their pictures by, these truly represent what they are into right now. Here are a few of my favorites...ok a lot of my favorites, it was just too hard to pick!
