I'm a QUITTER!!!!

Just a short update on the life of the Thomas House.
I am in school and working part time, both kids go to school full time and are enjoying TOT, Aaden is playing soccer, and Aaron just started a new job. Sooooo basically, we are swamped!
As you can already tell, I will probably not be blogging any more because it is way too time consuming. If you want to keep up with us and the going ons of our family just find me or Aaron on facebook!
Facebook is a much easier and quicker way for me to stay in touch with people via the world wide web.
So, for now, this is good bye! So long blogspot. It's been real, and it's been fun, but I just don't have time for you any longer!

I Don't Camp! (Or Do I??)

So a good friend of ours decided that our small group should go camping. Well, after all was said and done our small group camping trip turned into 2 families! I was NOT looking forward to this outdoor excursion; I did not think that it would be fun. Boy was I WRONG!!! I did not realize that I was going camping with "Lori the Camping Queen"! This woman is a camping professional, and made the whole trip amazing. She had everything we needed to prepare wonderful meals, and she even arranged for her brother's friend to come out to the lake with his boat so we could enjoy some boating fun on Saturday. So, I, Jessica Thomas, am a super-camper!
Here are some of the pictures to document our great weekend!
Aaron, Aaden, and I
**Please excuse the icky camping hair and no make up**

Hank with his fish! He caught two fish...Aaden was too impatient and would give up.
(That's Brian, Lori's brother, fishing with the boys.)

Rylan and Hank swimming in the lake.
(Our campsite was right on the lake, and it was shallow, so the kids were able to pretty much swim until they could swim no more...with their life jackets of course.)

Aaden and Me at our awesome campsite.
(We were at Johnson Creek at Lake O' the Pines. Very nice and I highly reccomend it!)

Jason (a friend of Lori and Chris) brought his HUGE jetski
over to our campsite, and all the kids got to take a ride.
Here they were just posing for the picture.

That's right! That's me. I know, I'm awesome! (Ha ha ha!)
I tried and tried and tried to wakeboard but was unsuccessful.
I am, however, determined, and I WILL wakeboard one day!
(Oh, and I don't have a picture, but Aaron was an awesome wakeboarder!)

Aaron and Aaden tubing behind the boat. You pretty much just hang on for dear life.
The kids both thought it was so so so much fun!

All About Aaden

Aaden got to go to summer camp for the first time this year. This past week he and his daddy have been going to Winnsboro, TX to Camp Deer Run. It is this awesome Christian camp out in the words with hiking, swimming, crafts, water games, story telling, and bible stories! Aaden had a blast! We are so proud of our little PeeWee (what they call the day campers)!!! Aaden and Aaron on his [their] first day of camp.

Aaden was so excited to be going to Camp Deer Run where his daddy went when he was little, and worked when he was in college. They had a great week, and I am sure this is the beginning of a long standing tradition for these boys (and Rylan when she gets older).

5 years ago on June 24, 2004 we were blessed with our first child, a beautiful baby boy. We named him Aaden Scott Thomas. Aaden was born in College Station about 6:30 in the evening. I was in labor for 12 hours, and it was worth EVERY second!
We recently just celebrated his 5th birthday! I can't believe it! Wow, how time flies! He started out as a perfect and beautiful baby boy, and he is quickly growing into such a little gentleman. He is funny, somewhat shy, and very very loving. He already loves the Lord, and has a very sweet heart. I am so proud of my big boy!

He will be starting Kindergarten this year at ACA, and he is super excited! I love watching him grow and learn new things with each day.

Such a proud daddy holding his baby boy for the very first time!

I just love this picture! You can see his perfect little round head, his pink cheeks, and his tongue curled up as he cries for the very first time.

We decided not to have a party this year with friends because we wanted to go to the lake instead. We made the trip to Tow, TX (6.5 hours away) to Lake Buchanan. There was Meme, Poppy, Great Nana, Aunt Sissy, and Uncle Seth (my parents, grandmother, sister and brother in law). We left Friday after school and came home Sunday afternoon. It was a VERY quick trip, but well worth it! (This was a few weeks ago, by the way. Better late than never!) Aaden told Meme that he wanted a non-glutenfree (so regular) white cake with white icing and spider man! Here is what she and Aunt Sissy came up with. Pretty good I think!

Blowing out his candles!

Uh oh! They're trick candles! Keep blowing!

Everyone had to blow to get the candles all out! Ha ha ha Poppy!

Happy Birthday Aaden! We love you!!

Summer tiiiiiime...when the livin's easy.

Last night was ACA Graduation 2009. Aaden is no longer in Pre-K, and Rylan will be headed to the "big kid" class.
The program was a 50's theme, ACA Soda Shop. All the kids looked amazing. Here are my 2 precious ones dressed and ready for the show.

Also, we had that problem of unwanted guests in our house brought in by an uninvited rat sooooo, we decided to get a dog to guard the yard for us.
His name is Ike, and he is a super sweet lab/chow chow mix. He is about a year old and the kids just love him.

So school is out and we are officially into our summer. ACA starts back for summer June 1, so we have a week and a half off. Our days will be filled with sleeping late, big breakfasts, pajama days, and lots of playing outside. Happy Summer Everyone!
