"Penny saved is a penny earned"

The saying "A penny saved is a penny earned" describes Jackson:) Jackson loves finding coins everywhere and he puts them in his pocket and always puts it in his piggy bank. Well it paid off! Jackson has been carrying around a sales paper he found in the paper to one of his favorite stores (Tractor Supply Company) *go figure! On the front of the ad had all of the model tractors that Jackson loves so dearly. Yesterday we dropped Andrew off for his dentist appointment and me and the kids when grocery shopping at Publix. Well Jackson happened to see Tractor Supply as we rode by to pick Andrew back up. He begged Andrew to take him to the "tractor place." Andrew came up with the great idea that after Jackson's nap we could open up his piggy bank, count up all the coins he has found and saved and then go and pick out a new toy tractor.

When Jackson woke up we emptied the bank and he sorted the coins by shape. The grand total was a SHOCKING $16 and some change! So he proudly put it in a Ziploc baggie,

got on his coat and Jackson and Daddy ventured out in the cold to their favorite place:)

While us girls stayed home cooking dinner Jackson was on his shopping spree. Andrew called and told me how much of a great boy Jackson was at the store. He carefully picked out his toy and stood in line patiently and talked to others in line. Andrew wouldn't tell me what they bought (Jackson was wanting an orange tractor so I was thinking that was the prize).

Jackson burst into the house with his toy and took it to the living room and said "We need scissors" (to get the toy out of the box). I managed to get him to pose for a few pictures:) Enjoy!

Also on EKC update. She is doing great. She is an angel. EKC is slipping into a great routine which is making life seem more "normal". She has mastered eating rice cereal and just this week we introduced peas and she LOVES them! Peas are just a small "snack" in her diet but she loves something new!
And Jackson is being a nut!She is also loving Jackson's old exersaucer! She sits up well assisted and now is trying to do it on her own! She is growing up too fast!
