Jonas loved going to Mexico with his daddy a few weekends ago. Of course he hugged all the little girls. He knew that we built a home for all those girls he was loving on all day, so I think he is starting to understand why we do what we do. This of course makes my heart happy.

Mother's Day

Mother's day in the Laffan house was great. Our little man brought his mother breakfast in bed (a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit). Then he crawled in bed with me got under the covers and shared the biscuit with me. I love that kid. We all took naps. I went on a walk and then we went to Leos for dinner. The day was perfect. I love my family!

Here Goes..........

I have launched my own online business. Selling cloth diapers......... of course. Let me know what y'all think and become a fan too. Go to the Cloth Bottom site We have committed to give 10% of all our profits to help fight child poverty. This means Jason and I will eventually be able to give a family a home through Casas por Cristo. We wanted to be more than just a business that sells diapers, but a business with a greater purpose, to be able to bring Him glory.

On Tuesday Jason had his tonsils taken out, adenoids chopped on, uvula taken out, and some other nose stuff done. He is feeling very miserable as I write this. I feel so sorry for him, but luckily the doctor prescribed some pain meds. Jonas keeps telling everyone that his daddy had surgery on his nose and throat, but of course he doesn't understand why his daddy can't read to him. If you get grossed out easily sorry about the after surgery picture.

Jason picked Jonas and I up on Wednesday night and we went straight to Mexico for the house dedication. A very kind women named Maria was given a house for her growing family. Spending the night in Mexico did not quite go as planned since Jonas did not sleep majority of the night. Other than that Jonas loved playing with 90 college kids and he danced around a little during praise and worshipped (pictured above).
Most of all, Jason and I were glad Jonas was able to see Mexico again. He understands that daddy builds houses in Mexico and says, "Casas house" on a regular basis. We want to raise our little guy knowing that he can help others with acts of selflessness. I feel that there is no better way than by showing Jonas why we serve Him in Juarez, Mexico. He needs to grow up seeing the faces of the Mexican people and see the poverty across the border so that he can understand how to serve and why we serve God and why He wants us to serve Him. We just want to raise Jonas to be a man of God that is for sure.

Family Voting Day

As always voting day is important in the Laffan house. I always explain to Jonas the significance of voting and why we are voting for our candidates. He really just likes the, "I Voted" sticker. However, I will continue to push my conservative values and beliefs on him so that when he turns 18 he can make a informed decision at the polls (Republican..........of course).

My Baby Is 2

Last Friday Jonas turned two. It made me sad, but he was obviously happy spending his birthday eating chicken. He also got a Thomas the train cake only because Target did not have any tractors.

And The Winner Is............

My husband!!! He will be embarrassed by this post , but I am so proud of him. For the past three months majority of the Casas staff has been in the biggest loser competition. Jason and his partner Mikell lost the highest percentage of body weight. I must say that my husband is looking very good.

El Paso

I have no real news to report. I know, boring, but y'all just want to see the kid any way.

Yes, I am guilty of never putting the finishing touches on our ginger bread house. Also I should throw it away soon. So maybe the top picture is a little gross if you look closely, but here is the proof that I did actually allow my child to have a cookie and I think he might have loved it.
