We took a trip to Star Valley to visit Brad's dad and help him hang his gigantic moose on the wall, above the stairs. Talk about a good arm workout; I thought I was going to die helping to lift that thing. It was so heavy! Jackson found a new friend while we were there:)
We had the annual Fairbourn family easter egg hunt. It was a blast, even though I only found three eggs. I was going for quality, not quantity I guess. Brad has finally mastered the egg hunt strategy and found the most money eggs (he hasn't had a lot of luck in past years).I'm lucky he decided to share his treasures with me since I did so poorly;) Even though we are all getting older now, we love the egg hunt my parents put on. It gets really competitive and everyone has so much fun!

We had a wonderful Easter. We were able to spend the day together as a family, enjoy the beautiful sunshine, and had a delicious dinner at my parents house. I am so grateful for my Savior and the knowledge I have of the gospel. I really love Easter Sunday, and my heart has been so full as I think about our Savior's sacrifice for each one of us and that He lives.

We took a few pictures after church on Easter. Here a few of my favorites:

Lastly, we have been having lots of laughs at our house lately. Jackson is getting so much personality and loves to laugh. He laughs all the time, which makes us laugh, which makes him laugh....You get the idea:) Brad was playing peek-a-boo the other night during dinner and Jackson was loving it. I feel so blessed!

8 Months

My little Jackson Man is 8 months old! Where did the time go? It amazes me how fast babies learn and grow. Sometimes I feel sad because I can't ever seem to get enough of my precious baby; I am trying hard to just enjoy every minute I get with him. He is such a sweet baby, and we feel so blessed to have him in our family. I can't imagine life without him.

Some of my favorite things about Jackson at 8 months:

Jackson gives kisses(extremely wet ones) and will even try and kiss himself when looking in the mirror.He has a fascination with jewelry, especially necklaces. Give him a necklace and he is entertained forever!

He has two bottom teeth that are about half way grown, and is just starting to get two on the top.
His favorite activities: going on walks, taking all the toys out of his toy box, playing with his music table, walking back and forth between Brad and I (we have to hold his hands), and taking baths.

He is so content no matter what! For example he gets so excited to get in the tub, but thinks it is so fun to get out too! Maybe this is because he knows Brad will tickle his feet when he is wrapped up in his towel. He starts laughing in anticipation, I love his laugh. But seriously, he is so happy all of the time. He often goes all day with out ever crying, I feel so spoiled.

I love his crazy hair!

He is finally getting more interested in solid food. Yeah! Now that he is eating more solid food, he seems to be sleeping better through the night. He goes to bed at 7:30pm and wakes up at 7:30am. He still wakes up to eat once or twice most nights, but he is big boy and is just really hungry!

Oh, I almost forgot! I love his chub! I don't see his neck very often due to his adorable chubby cheeks! They are so fun to kiss!

I love you Jackson!

Snow Fun

I have been sad to have such bad weather lately. Jackson and I have definitely missed our afternoon walks. But today, I was thrilled to enjoy all of this fresh snow. My family went snowmobiling at Beaver Creek Lodge in Logan Canyon. We had a blast! I have not been snowmobiling since Brad and I first started dating. Hugging him on the back of the snowmobile made me remember our dating days, and it was fun to get out and do something so fun together. Jackson hung out with Nana in the Lodge while we went. I'm not sure which one of them had more fun.

Brad and I found some sweet basins to play in, and we only got stuck once! The fresh powder on all the trees was absolutely beautiful. I loved every minute of it, but now I am ready for Spring to come back:)
