Oregon To Arizona 12/12-12/13

Kai was ready for some sun with his shades...

Look, Boppa's passing trucks!

Look Kids! It's Lake Havasu!

Boppa looking fly halfway into our second day of travel.

We knew we were getting close when we started seeing cacti on the side of the road.

The double decker trains were quite an exciting distraction for Jak and Kelan.

Here's Craig putting the finishing touches on our Arizona tree. We will miss spending the holidays with our family and friends this year and will be thinking of you all.

The Farm Christmas Tree

It's nice being able to pile into the tractor and drive the 90 seconds to next door to pick out a Christmas tree. Thanks to Tom and Julie and with the expert help of Neil, we got the most awesome tree for the farm!

Here's Kelan and Boppa wandering around the tree lot. He (by he I mean Kelan) kept running into trees and falling down. It was a sight to be seen.
Neil and Kai put the perfect tree into the trailer.

Kai is so bright!

The inaugural bulb de la Jak.

The little boys were almost immediately distracted by the awesome Little People Christmas train Bomma got.
Finished product!! Notice the concentration of ornaments above baby /toddler reach...maybe next year we can have a proportionally decorated tree...At any rate, this tree is beautiful. ..Even after bathtime, the Little People train held Jak's interest.It's like Where's Waldo...where's Kai?
His Christmas program at Monroe Grade School was awesome!

Daddy gets some goodbye kisses before heading to AZ on Friday.

If you can't smile, at least show your teeth.

Kai said he'll have a hard time wearing this shirt after the miserable Civil War loss.

Jak loves bundling up.

Jak had fun with Kelan's new ABC zoo (thanks Boppa and Bomma!!)

He was able to enjoy ALL aspects of Kelan's new toy.
Kelan was more than happy to share. He was busy getting his groove on.

Bubble bath time!

Kelan & Beatrice

We went and hung out with Beatrice while Aunt Gigi had a dentist appointment. First Kelan snuck into her exersaucer when I wasn't looking.

Then after Beabo got up from her nap, he was more than happy to entertain her.

He wanted to give her a toy.

And then decided it would be best to give her ALL of her toys. What a sweet cousin!

Recently there was a rare Uncle Bubba sighting here on the Reserve. He's the Alain Jorgensen look-a-like to the left. So here's the whole Bishop/Slagowski/Blair Clan.

Thanks to Craig (and Kelan) for making each photo better than the last!

All three siblings together for the first time in 5 years.
Jak loves holding Beatrice. She's not so sure.
I think Beatrice likes Kai.

Here's Kelan reading to Beatrice.


Craig in a suit.

Friday at 11:13 am, Kelan and Jak stood together, still and quiet. We gotta get the road grader to come by more often.

Jak loves Kelan.

Kelan found Kai's old helmet and walked around looking like Gazoo.

Happy Kelan.

Jak and Kai

Tom and Boppa worked for days to get the old Cat working. Kai test drove it and gave it his seal of approval.

It was a beautiful day for a hike on the refuge. Jak hitched a ride on Kai's shoulders.
Jak and Kai rolled down a big hill.
