The Eagle Has Landed

I was driving back home after taking the kids home on the bus route on Sunday when I looked up in a tree near my house and this is what I saw. This eagle looked like he was posing for me. He turned his head in so many directions before he finally thought I was too close and flew away.

Here are Some of the Highly Requested Pictures (Now leave me alone - just kidding)

Here are some pictures that I took with my good camera about a month and a half ago right around the time of Jackson's first birthday. Unfortunately they are all in the same clothes, just in 10,000 different poses. Enjoy.

This is just a smattering of pictures over the last couple of months. They were all taken on our point-and-shoot camera and most of them are not "fixed." Forgive me if they do not look professional. :-)

On the couch watching football together.

Jackson's favorite place to be - outside

On the back deck next to one of the wood piles

Cutting wood with Daddy

With cousins Cassie and Haley

Jackson got into a kick pushing a chair around the house

He loves to hear and watch me play the guitar

Besides being outside, this is one of his pther favorite places - the tub.

This is a very famous tree in Virginia because of who is associated with it. Robert E. Lee did a lot of correspondence while staying in the adjacent house during the Civil War.

You get an idea of how big it is. This is one half.

And this is the other.

He loves to play the piano and hear the piano played. He loves music, and I think it has a lot to do with all the music we used to play where he could hear it before he was born.

Playing with the set of blocks I made for him before he was born.

Like I said, he loves being outside. We were washing the car one day and he got to playing in the mud. He loved it!
