100th Day of School

Today is the 100th day of school. Jack's class did all kinds of things to celebrate. One cute thing they did was to dress up like they were 100! Jack says he would rather dress up like dad! He looked so cute!

First Lost Tooth!

Jack lost his first tooth! Last night (1/26) while Jack & Daddy were brushing teeth, Jack's first tooth came out! We were all so excited! Jack was so wound up! He put his tooth under his pillow before bed. When he woke up this morning, the first thing he did was look under his pillow! The Tooth Fairy left him $2.00! He couldn't wait to go to the bus & to school to show everyone that he lost his tooth! Wow! He is just growing up too fast!

Pump It Up Birthday Party

We had Jack's birthday party at Pump It Up on Sunday, January 25th. He had so much fun! Bret got a great shot of me & Jack coming down the slide! We had a Transformers cake that turned out really cool! Jack really enjoyed all of his family & friends playing with him!

Jack is 6!

January 16, 2009 - Jack turns 6! I can't believe he is so big! We started his day off by giving him a Transformers hoodie so that he could wear it to school. He was so excited! While he was at school, we (me, Luke & Chloe!) made him a birthday cake!

Mr. Smiley!

Luke smiles all the time! It's hard to catch a picture of him smiling, but I thought this was a good one! I took him for his 1 month check up on 12/30/08. He weighed 9 pounds, 3 ounces & was 22 & 1/2 inches long! I can't believe he has grown that much!

Jack had so much fun being out of school for Christmas break. He really got to enjoy his new toys! I really enjoyed all of us spending time together. Bret took vacation the week of Christmas & most of the next week. I really hate that Jack has to go back to school soon & that I will have to go back to work soon & leave both of my boys! I keep thinking maybe we will hit the lottery! Hey - someone has to win, right?

Christmas 2008

Christmas was so much fun this year! Jack just gets so excited about the tree, decorations, Santa, etc. Since Luke is only a month old, his first Christmas wasn't all that exciting for him, but it was for us! Jack wanted a Tooty-Tooty Turbo Train from Santa so here is a picture of him with his new train!

We had Christmas with the Turner family at Rob & Patti's house. The kids had so much fun! Santa rides through their neighborhood on a fire truck & gives out candy. I'll post pictures when I get them from Rob! (It was cold that night, & I forgot to take my camera outside!)

On Christmas day, Granny, Grandmother, Grammy & Papa came over & ate lunch with us. Jack played with all of his new toys so much! He was worn out that night!

Baby Luke!

Luke Ryne Gowder was born on November 24, 2008 at 2:04 pm. He weighed 6 pounds, 14 ounces & was 21 inches long. Jack loves his new baby brother! We are truly blessed to have these 2 precious boys!
