Here's the video, as promised! Every night before putting Jacob to bed, we thank God for another day with Jacob. May God grant us many more days ahead!

Somewhere amidst the fun of the weekend, Jacob got a nasty cold/virus. He's been coughing, not able to sleep well, and his nose has been running like crazy! So, for the past few days we have been taking it easy around here. We're resting, rocking, and drinking lots of orange juice! Ha!
I've been working on a video for Jacob to end the January Journals, but still trying to figure out how to post it...Any bloggers out there know how to do this on the new interface?!?!?!
Check back soon!

Ever since we went to a birthday party for a friend back in November, Jacob has been talking about his 3 year party. Originally, he said he wanted an "Orange" party and I was unsure how we would pull that off. But, luckily for us, he changed his mind and wanted a football party. Thank you Jacob for picking something that would be totally easy to decorate (since the Super Bowl is right around the corner). Ha! So here's the pictures from his "Football Party!"
Happy 3rd Birthday, Jacob!

Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth...
For Jacob's birthday we got tickets to the circus! We have been talking about it with him for a while and he was very excited about going to the circus for his birthday. He talked about seeing the Elephants mostly. And...his favorite part was the Elephants. In fact, he said they were "the best." Here's some pictures from the evening!
|Daddy and Jacob waiting for the circus to begin. Jacob picked out a flashing light with an elephant on it. :)|

Happy 3rd Birthday Jacob!
Tonight we celebrated Jacob's birthday by going to eat his favorite food, RICE, BEANS, and ENCHILADA. We decided to go to Chuy's. It was yummy and Jacob even got some sopapillas at the end of his meal.
(more to come at the end of the month about my reflections on his 3 years...)

There was so much food, that we had to take a couple to go boxes. Stuffed!

Coal Train Railroad
Today we went to see a local music group called Coal Train Railroad. They are a kids jazz band, and perform all around, but we've always seen them at the Library. They're great!
|G-Jo and Jacob waiting for the show to start.|
|Singing the song about getting our wiggles out. Ha. Kids were dancing all over the place!|
|Watching the show, Jacob is getting his wiggles out...out of his hands, that is. :)|
|Another look at the band. So fun!|

The Tuley Airport
|Jacob loves playing with his airplanes. He usually will have one or two of these in bed with him when we check on him in the middle of the night. Today, he's set up an airport.|
|The rest of the planes that didn't fit on the ottoman. We made sure the shuttles were upright and ready for take-off.|

Bowling with G-Jo
|Setting up the pins|
|G-Jo showing Jacob how to roll the ball and hit the pins...|
|...and a complete miss. Notice the ball ended up by G-Jo...|
|So, this is how Jacob decided to solve that problem...he just knocked them down with his hands. He would yell, "I got em all!!"|
|...and of course, Jacob pretended the pin was a baseball bat. Ha!|

G-Jo is here!!!!!
Each morning that G-Jo has been here, he has gone in her room and climbed into bed with her while she reads him books. He's asking her to play every second of the day, and telling her to come with him into his room too. He's loving all the attention!
