A Very Merry Chistmas

Merry Christmas (or as Tucker says Happy Happy!)

Well, santa found us (a bunch of times) even though we were all over the place this year. We got lots of cool new toys for the new house. We spent lots of time with our cousins and grandparents it was lots of fun. Tucker got a sit n spin, bulldozer, a desk, tj beary tales, a work bench and tools, and a camera plus lots of other cool stuff, Jaycie Claire made out with bitty baby and accessories, a care bear, a grocery cart, a purse, and tons of baby doll stuff. We thank everybody for all we got we are very lucky little kids and hope every little kid out there was just as lucky. Have a great rest of 2006 we are off to Heyworth to see the new home tomorrow.
take care,
Jaycie claire, and the bear

Holy dirt Pile!!!!

Well I had to put the picture on of "mount Coon" that I spent all day trying to climb!!!!!

The Big Reveal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi All Its me Tucker and I am soooooo excited to announce that there is an enormous hole I own at 706 Justin Drive in Heyworth, IL (5 minutes outside of Bloomington) Thats right my big surprise is that I am building a new home and I spent the day watching all these big trucks and excavators dig the basement. I even got to ride on a big dump truck to haul away was that fun! The hole is really deep about 11 feet you have to put a ladder down it to get in and out I have never seen such big piles of dirt and mom and dad even let me climb them this afternoon I must say I can get pretty high! Here are some pictures. They should finishing digging either tomorrow or Monday and then they will pour the footings and the walls of the basement if the weather stays good, Joe (the builder and my new hero man is he cool!) says we will be framing in a week and a half!

I can't wait for everyone to come visit and play with me here our lot is up on a hill and at the end of this cul de sac we also have woods in our back yard and the construction guys said when they got there this morning there were 7 deer in our yard!! Won't that be cool to wake up and see in the morning! Hope to update soon with a picture of the actual hole mommys camera ran out of juice by the afternoon and we didn't get it today. Take care and Go Cards!!!!!!!!

Texas Pics

Here's some pics from our Texas trip. We had so much fun with our cousins. I just loved my big cousins Graham and Adison they took really good care of me while I visited. I also loved the puppies they had and can't stop talking about them. Jaycie Claire loved the pool there is a picture of her and Graham in the water. I also got to take a ride in a boat with my cousin Tyler. I didn't say much at the time but I am really proud of the picture! We can't wait to go back----but mom says we need to give the Chapmans a little break after having busy little me around for 4 days! Maybe next summer! Well take care and stay tuned we have a big family project brewing soon and can't wait to share it with you. You know my family we don't let any grass grow under our feet ---Well take care and mommy promises to get back on track with updating this blog a little better!
