Fun Holidays!
-Alicia Jackman

This fall has been fun with all the fun Holidays! We celebrated Damon's Birthday along with all of his friends, had Halloween and now look forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I have been really enjoying how well our two kids get a long and love to play together and share everything. In the Morning Kylie doesn't call out for Mom or Dad to come get her, but Damon! She mastered the doors and climbing up and down from beds recently along with a HUGE vocabulary!

Bob has to remind me that Damon can help with so much. I find I'm always hurring to get lunch ready and dishes cleaned, when he is so good at those things too. I've had to slow down and let these kids take over a little.

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family and especially a husband that works so hard for our family, and yet will drop anything and everything if I need him just to cuddle with me or take over with the kids.

We have so much to be Thankful for!

Starting Preschool!
-Damon Jackman

I am doing so well in my Preschool class. I just learned about colors and now we're working on Shapes and letters. I know my ABC's and can spell my name! I am such a good big brother and am always so careful and loving towards Kylie. I have been helping in the kitchen fixing meals and washing dishes. Grandma Deana got me a "Bling Ring" at the store and it's my favorite toy. Halloween is my Favorite holiday- Not only because of the candy, but all the scary costumes and yards we walked up to.

Little Lady Bug
-Kylie Jackman

I really enjoyed Halloween this year. VERY excited about the candy! I was a Lady Bug, but some people thought I was a strawberry! I am a very happy talkative little girl that is now starting to say prayers.

About Bob!
-Bob Jackman (Alicia Jackman)

Since we can't seem to get Bob to find time, I'm going to write a little about what Bob has been up to!

This has been a very stressful semester at the U for Bob. He's taking two classes and one being very difficult for him. But if he can manage to pass these last two classes then he just has the Spring Semester to finish his Thesis or Project and have his Masters' Degree. We will be very excited for him to be done with school for a while.

As far as work (which this can be confussing for the kids saying "School" vs. "work") He loves teaching and has been so impressed with the students and their improvements this year. He feels like they have progressed a lot further than they have in past years.

The Winter/Christmas program is December 10th & 11th I believe (check Calendar for the right day) All are welcome to come and he would love for you to come listen to the kids and all the hard work they've put into playing well.
