Tanner Kyle Jackson

 Tanner's first hours after birth with mom and dad
 Grandma Record gave Tanner his first sponge bath.  Thanks Grandma!
Jackson boys

We had our 3rd baby boy!

What a surprise!  Baby Tanner came 2 weeks early. 
Labor and delivery went very well for Chrissy and Tanner. 
Marshall loves to hold Tanner and help mom.  He is such a good big brother!

When we got home from the hospital Clay was confused because moms stomach wasn't flat, yet Tanner was born.  He pointed to Chrissy's stomach and said, "When is that baby going to come out?"  Mom assured him that Tanner was the baby in mom's belly, Tanner just left his pillow and blanket in there. 

Clay is adjusting to being a big brother.  When Clay realized that Tanner just eats and sleeps he said, "Can we take this baby back to the hospital and get one that sits up and crawls?"

Tanner is the best toy that Clay could have.  He loves waking up Tanner by putting his face on Tanners face and saying, "Hi baby!"  "Wake up baby Tanner!" We are working on setting boundaries for Clay and baby Tanner.  Its a hard balance to have Clay feel involved in Tanners life, but to protect Tanner from a creative three year old.

Our lives in the Fall

Marshall's first day of school. 

I'm a little crazy nesting right now.  I've painted walls, made a cowboy baby bumper, dust ruffle and curtains.  Now I need to hang stuff on the walls, wash clothes... and I have the urge to organize and clean everything in my house. 

It's still warm here.  Marshall and Clay love our pool!

Oregon Reunion

The Jackson men had some outdoor time fishing, camping, seeing horses, 4 wheeling and playing with fire. What a dream for Marshall and Clay: sticks, dirt and rocks. 

 Good job Marshall!

True men roast marshmallows on sticks.

Happy Birthday Clay and Corbett!

 Clay got this awesome bike for his birthday.  We are hoping that it will help him learn to pedal. 
 In Oregon we celebrated Clay and Corbett's Birthday time...
 Corbett had all his dreams come true....Ketti made him a quilt with minke on the back. 

 We celebrated more "Birthday Time" with Stacy and Jeff .

In Utah we got to see our friends from grad school, the Mortensens.

Before we went to the cabin we visited Shelby and Derek in Idaho and Corbett's mission President

Here is Marshall and Clay with some of his cousins.
 We had our reunion at a cabin at Bear Lake: 13 adults, 15 grandchildren, 3 on the way.  Here we are celebrating mom and dad's 40 anniversary.  Surprise!

 I love that Clay will sleep anywhere.  Thanks Grandma!
