ammon eating

Ammon eating with a spoon for the first time!

being silly

just hangin' out

Ammon loves phones! He would rather have a phone than anything else. He holds the phone up to his ear and says HELLO, bla bla bla! Soooooo cute. He has just started holding the phone to his ear with his shoulder. I will try to sneak a picture next time he does it. He is learning what flowers are and tries to pick them. He has not mastered that quite yet, but I am sure he will any day now.... he just is learning and soaking up everything like a sponge. "mommy needs to be on her best behavior"

Always laughing and " talking up a storm"as Alan would say.

Visit from Mike

Mike and Ammon
Ammon being silly AGAIN!!! what a cutie

Jason's Cousin Mike was here for a visit from Washington. It was very nice to see him and he was able to meet Ammon for the first time. Mike and Jason went to one of the Dallas Stars playoff games and had amazing seat and of course neither on of them took a camera. Mike bought Ammon and Jason sweaters (jerseys) way sweet. Thanks Mike!!


A New Mower!

Amber got Ammon a little lawn mower for his birthday. It blows bubbles as you push it, very cute!!! He loves pushing it around outside and inside.
One handed, he has this thing down!
To bad it doesn't really cut the grass

Happy Happy Birthday Ammon Dear!

Ammon's first birthday party was Saturday.....what a day. Have you ever noticed how much work and stress it is to put something together to provide our children with memories and experiences......even at the age of one, Ammon can look at pictures in 20 yrs and see a birthday party but there are no pictures that show the stress, work and sunburns that went into it!! But in the end it is all soooooo rewarding and totally worth it!!
We held it at Bransom Elementary School and it was a perfect location (except for the wind). Great pavilion, huge playground, soccer fields, basketball goals, there was no shortage of fun for the kiddos.....
He wasn't sure what to do with this at first....but he's a quick learner!!
The cake is completely gone today by the way. He ate the entire thing in two sittings!! Mommy may have helped a little.....
Ammon got soooooo many great presents, thank you thank you thank you to all of you that were there and all your generosity!! Ammon is truly having a blast with all his new stuff!!
After the party was over we came home and December, Ethan, Alan and Ammon partied some more. Here they are shooting "poppers." Those thingies that you pull the string and stringer paper shoots out....
That is Jason back there waiting for the second the pictures were done to tell the kids to put the noise makers down.....the sounds of them was making our dogs in the backyard howl!
Ethan & Ammon playing with the new toys.
We had SOOOO many balloons because we bought them but the wind was to bad to put them out. So we got rid of some by having the kids write their number one wish down, tie it to a balloon and release it. The wishes included..... Meet Spiderman (Ethan), become a car (Alan & Ethan), have fun at Candyworld(?) (December). Poor Ethan, his wish was "too heavy" as Alan pointed out. It got stuck in a tree across the street!
All the kiddos, sitting still for a second.
Nothing like Popcorn and the movie Cars to keep them quiet for about an hour and a half.

Ammon's 1yr Pics

We had Ammon's 1 yr pictures taken the other day.....they turned out great!! He was in a great mood and made it a really easy shoot. I was sooooo relieved.

Look at the dimple!!

His football pose,

See the drool?

This is Jason's favorite picture, Ammon has so much personality. We got this one in a black & white 10x13. It looks amazing!

Ammon did like riding, slow of course, don't let his face in this picture fool you!

My brave sister-in-law Laurie!

It had been so long since I had been four wheeling. It was a blast. Behind my moms house there are trails with little and big hills. I cannot wait to go back and ride again!!

Park Fun

Yummy! Ammon's first taste of SAND:) I freaked out at first and then decided it was probably going to happen a lot more, so I took a picture.

He was trying to climb out or onto everything. SOOOOOO scary.
...Alan and Ethan...
More sand......they love the sand box!
