My babies

Can you see the family resemblance? (I think they look completely different...)

Jackson on his "birth"day.

Reagan on her "birth" day.

I was are ten weird, random, facts/habits

1. I love to budget!

2. I don't think I have ever had 8 glasses of water in one day.

3. I can't stand clutter...I am constantly throwing things away (yes, dad, really)(sorry about the Sees Candy, Matt).

4. I have a temper (that comes through the Burnett line :)).

5. I took piano lessons for 12 years and can barely play the children's primary songs--forget the hymns (I guess that is why they say you need to practice).

6. I have a fear of water.

7. I love to scare myself silly by watching horror movies and reading Dean Koontz books, while I am alone (which is pretty rare these days with two little ones).

8. I use to want to run for office someday--I don't think so any more--I don't think my skin is thick enough, nor my brain quick enough. Matt will run, though, and he has both of those--

9. When I'm really nervous or worried, I can't eat--I lost 5 pds. when I was put in as Relief Society President.

10. I have no known hobbies--except my kids and my church calling (which Matt says don't count). But, I am always searching for that one hobby that will appeal to me--any suggestions?

Like Brother, Like Sister

Can you tell what my children like to do? Jackson is a computer genius (I am obviously biased, being his mom and all--but he knows more about the things then I do), and Reagan, if we could get her to sit still for more than 15 seconds, just might follow in her brother's (and dad's and grandpa's) footsteps.

An Afternoon With Jackson

I sat down this afternoon and had a brief interview with the very famous Jackson Sage--here are some of his favorites:

Color: Red (not sure why, he always insists on wearing blue)
Food: Apples (he likes them whole, not sliced)
Drink: Milk (he prefers chocolate)
Shape: Triangle
Song: Twinkle, Twinkle and ABC's
Game: Unreal--Capture the Flag
Hero: Abinadi
Number: 1 (of course)
Letter: G (but he also likes H)
Animal: Giraffe
Favorite Past Time: Computers (crazy, huh :))
Primary Song: Jesus Wants me for a Sun bean (the first line)

We had a great afternoon, just talking and I found out some new things about my son--who would have known that he had a favorite letter? I have a few things to ponder, as well--for instance, why a triangle?.. and what if he asks for a giraffe--instead of a cat or dog some day? Anyways, questions for the future--hope you enjoyed getting to know our Jackson a little better!

Green Bean and Pirate

Jackson had his first day at Sunbeams last Sunday. He loved it! He came home and told me he was a green bean. For Family Home Evening we worked on being reverent in primary--I was the mommy, jackson was the green bean (sunbeam), and Matt was the primary teacher. We must have practiced over fifteen times (he loved the part where Matt said "Welcome to Primary"). I am not sure if he ever got the point of the whole excersice--to teach him to fold his arms and listen to his teachers--but he sure had a blast and he learned the first line to "Jesus Wants me for a Sunbeam"--so now, he is a Sun bean (and a pirate), not a green bean :). Matt and I sure are proud of our little green bean.

Reagan and the Sink

Reagan is our water baby. One of her most favorite things to do when we go to Matt's family's house is sit in the kitchen sink and play in the water--the other night she was in there for over an hour. Here are some cute pictures of her...
