Grandpa Record & Marshall at my old elementary school playground
Grandma Record, Clay and Grandpa Record
Marshall, Grandpa Record & cousin Sammy reading
My parents were good sports to let us come for Thanksgiving. They were in the process of replacing all their windows and remodeling their kitchen. It was so fun to be with my parents, Nathan, Lys, Sammy, Katie, Corbett, Marshall & Clay.

Marshall... say cheese!
Here comes Clay!
Marshall loves Clay. Every morning when he initially sees him he says, "I kiss him?" Then he smothers him in hugs and kisses. He also likes to hold him.... with supervision.
In this video clip Clay shows off his new cooing sounds. He's in a hurry to catch up to Marshall. He rolled over about 3 weeks ago; a lot earlier than Marshall.

This lucky guy has two Halloween costumes. That is what you get when your born in the Fall. Thanks you Hicks and Beebes! He's a cutie as a skeleton and chicken.
Here is our pirate Marshall. Its hard to tell what he is because he didn't like keeping on the patch or hat... some thought he was a gypsy. The cool thing about his costume is that it was Corbett's when he was younger.

So, this story is something that happened the beginning of October... so its old news to some, but I thought some of you might enjoy it and relate to it.
This is a train mural that I painted on Marshall's bedroom wall. I enjoy doing creative things like painting. Its something that is fun and rejuvenating for me.
I worked on the mural here and there over a couple of weeks. On one occasion Marshall realized that I wasn't watching him every minute so he decided to take advantage of the situation by getting into his favorite food: YOGURT!

We have certainly kept ourselves busy since Clay was born about six weeks ago. This weekend Clayton was blessed at our Church. We were lucky to have Corbett & Chrissy's parents in town as well as Chrissy's brother, Nathan, and his family. The picture below shows the grandparents with the new parents.
And here is a picture of the Jackson 4...
We are participating in the YES on Proposition 8 campaign by knocking doors and making phone calls to educate people. For all Californians this is an issue that will be on the ballot on November 4th. Proposition 8 places into the California Constitution the same language that voters passed by 61% of the voters in 2000. This is necessary to overturn a California Supreme Court decision that overturned Proposition 22.Proposition 8 is simple and straightforward. It reads: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in

Marshall loves lawn mowers. When we lived in our apartment we would sit by the window each week to watch "The lawnmower guy". When I told Marshall that daddy was getting a lawnmower for our house, he became very excited. I decided to get Marshall a house warming gift... his very own bubble lawnmower.
He wants to do what daddy does.
Marshall really looks up to Corbett and both his Grandpas. I am constantly amazed at how observant he is at his male role models. In this clip he wants to do just what grandpa Record does.

Grandpa and Grandma Record came to help the "Jackson Three" get settled in our new home. They helped a lot with the yard. Our house has been unoccupied for a year, so there was a lot of overgrowth in the yard. Grandpa had more energy that all of us combined. He and Grandma filled about 16 large trash bags with green waste. This would have probably taken us a year to do ourselves with the baby coming. Thanks Record Grandparents for helping us.
Marshall likes to do what grandpa does.
Don't worry, he wasn't holding these for long.
Three generations- Grandpa Record, Marshall and Corbett
Marshall loves his new back yard. So did grandma after a long day of work.
Here is our growing family.

Here is the pregnant lady. This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago, so I am bigger now. I have 4 weeks left until our new little boy is born. We feel blessed that our move was before the baby was born.
The Jackson grandparents came to help us move on July 4th weekend. They were a big help. Here is Grammy and Marshall waiting for grandpa and Corbett to carry out the big heavy couches. "Big Truck" is a phrase that I heard Marshall say a lot during our move. Marshall loved riding in the Uhaul.
Look at these young, strong stallions.
Here is Grammy and Grandpa in our back yard right after Marshall squirted them with the hose. Marshall loves the water and wanted to share his love with his grandparents! He is a thoughtful boy.

Marshall likes the big potty and the little potty and his "Cars" underwear.
Marshall has recently shown a lot more of his "independent side". We do what we can to use that to our benefit. He has become a good helper... as this video shows.
