The 8th Floor

As long as I can remember, going to the 8th Floor at Macy's, formerly Marshall Field's, formerly Dayton's (or as Matt calls it Damarcy's), was a highlight of the year in the Hanks family. This year it is the Nutcracker, and we took Jack for the first time along with Grandaddy and Grandma Hanks. I don't know what he got out of it, but we all enjoyed it. It was also one of Matt's and my first dates in 2001. We had a great time and got a Christmas card picture out of the deal, too, so you will all see that before too long. And then we had to have a cookie at the end. What a treat! Here's us....

First Haircut!

It's a Friday night in the Fure household and we are having a party! Well, not really. Actually we are quite boring. We gave Jack a haircut (as you will see), we went to Home Depot (WOO HOO!), and now we are sitting outside of a closed library using their wireless internet in the parking lot while Jack sleeps in the back seat. Oh, the exciting life of a poor family!!!

Well, we finally had to cut Jack's hippie 'do! As the pictures will prove, he was getting pretty shaggy. It was really just a trim, but it was needed. It started out OK, but it got a little challenging toward the end as he was getting bored. We have a video, but we don't have it on the computer, so maybe we'll put it on later. We didn't get a lot of hair, but it did make a difference.

Here are the before pictures:

And here is the after picture:

Jack also got a new winter jacket!

New Toy(let)

Jack has started to find some new toys to play with. Shannon walked into the bathroom the other day and was startled to find Jack fascinated with his new toy. You also get to see him waving a little bit.

No, we weren't celebrating evil on Wednesday, but Jack looked way too cute in his fireman outfit.
