Kendall was talking to the boys one day and had a very interesting conversation about age. It went a little something like this: Kendall was telling the boys that his parents bought their first camera on his first birthday so they could take his picture. Cameron responded with: "oh, they didn't have one before then because they weren't invented right." Then Jacob was talking about how in the 90's the Indians were fighting with the Americans. Pretty funny stuff.
It reminded me of a story my sister in law told me about her son, Britton who is Jacob's age. He said, Mom let's play a guessing game about animals. She said okay. She said, I am thinking of an animal that is furry and soft and likes to be pet. He said, A cat!. Yes, she said. He says, I am thinking of an animal that is green, and big, and lived in the 1980's or 90's, I think. She said, I have no idea. "A dinosaur Mom, geez!" I wonder if he thinks I am a dinosaur since I graduated from high school in '96? Or what would he think if he knew I was born in the 70's???
I read an article about what this generation will never know about. It gave examples of things like; VHS tapes, rotary phones, and pay phones. It is crazy to think that I am the mother of these kids who now make me feel ancient since I actually have seen a VHS movie!!!

For Christmas, some of Kendall's family came to visit for a few days. We were able to finally meet Liza who was 18 months old. The kids all got along, which was great. Whenever possible, Jenna pulled the teenager card and chose to stay at home by herself because as we all know "family sucks".
Jenna was in her 2nd horse show in December and placed in 3 out of 4 events. She was AMAZING. Her horse, Omni, was a bit stubborn in the last event and wouldn't cross a mandatory bridge which caused Jenna to not place. This is by far my favorite picture of her and Omni, Papa Jones says it should be in Cavenders ad.

We were able to go to East Texas for Memorial Day, Gilmer to be exact, and have an extended Jones Family reunion. It was really fun and was hard work trying to remember everyone. I haven't seen a lot of my cousins since we were Carter's and Jacob's ages so we all looked very different. It was great to be reunited though. The kids had a great time. We were at my Dad's cousins house, Joe. He had rented some golf carts for the kids to run around his property on and that was a lot of fun for them. It gave Jenna and her cousin Braeden who is her age a lot of freedom since they could drive around by themselves. We have lots of pictures to remember our fun times by and the kids keep asking to go back...

This is Jacob's Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Abraham. She has had all 3 of the older kids now and I think she's amazing. They have this little party called "Author's Tea" and the kids each get to read one of their pieces of work for the parents. It's a lot of fun to see the kids in the teachers chair and in charge. They are each very proud of their work. Jacob's of course was the best. :)
This is Cameron getting his Wolf badge. He had to howl like a wolf on all fours with fake teeth in his mouth. He had a great time and he thought he was the coolest thing ever. It was pretty amazing that he got his wolf badge so early. His den leader was really proud of him, as we were also.
