So, Tuesday night, as I was cooking dinner and Clint was packing, things got quiet. Too quiet. Clint came through the kitchen to ask what J was doing just as I was thinking the same thing. We discovered our young one standing in the chair at the desk pointing to the computer screen. "Sei judg cue de ese" he says in a very excited tone. (That's Jacksonese for those of you who don't know.) Clint laughed and I removed said young one from the chair to the sounds of hysterical screaming. Hhhmm...Maybe I should turn on the BabySmash just in case he climbs back up in the chair? Why, you ask? Because I was cooking and Clint was packing. Therefore, I knew that J could slip back in there undetected. So, I turn on the BabySmash and go back to the kitchen.
I was right. In just a minute or two I heard the sounds of the computer talking in letters and colors. Young one was in the chair. By the time I reached him again, the computer was shutting down into hibernation mode. How? I have no idea. This program is supposed to keep kids from damaging files and getting into places they shouldn't on a computer.
When I rebooted, I was missing three desktop icons and the about 8 keys in the "backspace" area were not functioning. How? Again, no idea. I found the icons in the recycle bin (one of which he managed to rename), but I ended up having to run a "system restore" to get the keys to work.
Moral of the story: Maybe BabySmash is for older kids, or maybe it's just not for Cook kids.

Clint is an Alabama fan. While the Hamilton family was gathered together to watch the Auburn-LSU game, Clint and Will discussed the Alabama-Auburn game and its outcome. Clint, of course, thought that Alabama would win and Will, an Auburn fan, thought that the Tigers would prevail. Clint bet Will that Alabama would win and if they did Will had to pull for the Tide for the entire next year.
Me helping Jackson. He got the hang of unwrapping after four days of Christmas!
Wednesay, we had Christmas with Grandpop (Poppa) and Granna (Clint's parents):
This was one of Jackson's favorite gifts. The other was, of course, another tractor.
Testing it out. Notice his outfit...those were his daddy's.
I love this picture. He had a ball.
If you listen closely, you can hear him making his tractor noise. Heehee.
Too cute! I think he looks like Clint in this picture.
Five generations: Grandmother Gunnells, Nana, Granna, Clint and Jackson (and Aunt Alison too!)
We were at our house Christmas morning and Santa came!
Playing, ur climbing, on his piano from Pop I and Granny B
I know he's mine. He loves shoes!
Reading his Bambi book with Daddy
Playing under the table with Granny B (Don't panic Mom, this is the only one I posted)
Still under the table
Christmas night we had dinner at Grandma and Janet's with the Isom crew:
Jackson after we put his jammies on, but it was hot at Grandma's
The Isom crew. With this many people in one room, you know it's hot!
That's it for now. We had a great Christmas! I'll have some pictures from New Year's Day later.
