I am lame!

 The infamous batman
 It's hard to save the world every day
 Jericho and Zach and their fusnaches
He switches it up...Jericho as Robin

I can't believe I have neglected my blog for so long.  Kind of sad.  This is how I keep track of my Jericho.  I have lots of pictures to upload.  This is just a smidgen of photos to come.  
Wade is still in school full time, I still work full time nights (blech!! ) and Mr. Jericho started his 2nd year of preschool this year on Sept 4th!

He loves school.  Some mornings it is rather dramatic to get him up/dressed (in normal clothes) and going.  But, once he is at school he is one happy fella.  He is also doing Hip Hop with his friend Gavin and I think he will like it. 

Jericho loves superheros.  All of them.  If it has a costume...he is a fan.  As a result he is always wearing a costume and always in character.  He has been quite the talker the last 6 months or so, and seriously never stops talking while awake.  He tells stories, tells me about all the superheros and their powers.  And..he has to give me lists of toys/costumes he wants for his "birthday".  

He is always saying the craziest things.  I wish I could remember them all.  Since it is getting closer to Halloween time he is obsessed with decorating and really wants to carve a "ponkin".  He loves skeletons "bones" and of course all things Maleficent....since I am her number one fan and have lots of her around the house at this time of year. 

Tonight as we are sitting in the living room Jericho "tooted".  I said, "say excuse me" and he said, "but it wasn't a toot mom, It was a bum secret".  Ah. OK.

We went to Disneyland the first weekend in January.  It was a quick trip with my sister and her kids.  It was awesome.  We were able to have VIP seats for Fantasmic and they had snow machines.  It was so amazing.  We went for a return trip with my sister and her kids in May.  We can't seem to leave that place for very long.  We all have a pretty big fascination/love for Disneyland.  Plus, we all get along so well and have to much fun together.  It's an awesome time.  

My whole family is going to Disneyland Oct 15-21st! In just a few short weeks.  So excited.  I could go every month and never get sick of it.  All I need is a few million dollars to keep up with my Disney habit!

Stuff we have been up to!

Me and Parky at City Creek - cannot get it to go right side up - so just turn your head upside down to see it correctly!

Jericho at Build A Bear!

Wade getting his nares waxed!!

Wade in is awesome ugly sweater and cop stache

My handsome Jericho! So excited about his tree!

I haven't posted for a long time!  Too long!  I need to be so much better about documenting our lives!
Jericho started Preschool just after we got home from Disneyland.  He loves it!  His teachers are awesome and they do so many great things with him.  He has been on two field trips already.  One to the apple orchards and one to the fire station.  They are always doing so many fun projects and crafts.  It's adorable to hear him talk about what he has learned!
Jericho was Batman for Halloween.  He is so in love with the superheros right now.  He is obsessed with batman and has to wear his batman costume almost every day.  If I can talk him out of putting it on so I can wash it, he will wear his batman pj's or his superman pj's.  He is very entertaining and makes me laugh all day long.
We were able to spend some time with Nik and Parker in Salt Lake around Thanksgiving.  We went shopping at City Creek, went to dinner with our cousins and I even got a whole night in the hotel with the girls without the stink bug!  It was awesome!  Aunt Nikki spoiled Jericho as usual and bought him a buzz lightyear bunny at build-a-bear!  He calls it "buzz bunny lightyear".
I had a girls party at my house and we did facial waxing and I sold some avon.  Wade participated by getting his nose waxed!  It really doesn't hurt and it feels pretty great afterwards! :) 
We had our Haskell Christmas Party where we wear our ugly sweaters and build gingerbread houses.  Everyone had a good time.  I cooked turkey and stuffing and we had lots of treats.  You can see by Wade's picture that he got into his outfit pretty good. 
Here's some Jerichoisms:

*Fusnache: Mustache
*Penguin: grandpa haskell
*catwoman: Grandma Sandra
*Joker: me or daddy wade
*robin: me or daddy wade
(everyone is a character at all times....)
*He is scared of Santa due to his constant watching of "A Christmas Story"....
*He says, "Probly been to a thousand malls"...every time he
puts on his batman costume in reference to Tim Allan saying this as he
puts on the santa outfit on "The Santa Clause".
*He has to look in the mirror constantly to check out
his costume attire
*He loves his sippy cup and po-po bear still and has to have them every
where we go!
"Oh my gosh batman!"  He says this constantly.  It took me
a while to get the "gosh".  It was GOD for a while.  Now, he looks at me every time
and says "gosh" with a lot of emphasis and then says, "I said GOSH mom!"

I'll post more pics of Jericho's bday party and fun things next.  I can't believe how much stuff I've missed on documenting!

We have been busy wrapping presents and decorating for Christmas.  Jericho is soooo excited and of course wants everything "batman"!  We get to go to Vernal to see my family for Christmas and I am so excited!

We had the best time in Disneyland!  These are just a sneak peak of the pics I will post.  
The 1/2 Marathon was super fun and a pretty awesome experience!  So glad I did it!
I did end up getting pretty sick after wards (bronchitis), but I wasn't going to let that
stop me from enjoying disneyland!  The weather was great.  It was pretty busy, but we still
had a great time.  Enjoyed being with my parents and Jericho and Nik and Park for a couple of days!
And lots of people watching!  
Thanks to my AMAZING parents for their support and for taking Jericho and I. 
It was great and I'm glad we had the opportunity!

5 more days

Only 5 more days and I'll be on a plane to California!  Am I ready for Disneyland?  Heck yes!  Am I ready for another half  marathon? Heck no.  I'm pretty sure this will be my last  half.  I need to keep getting in shape and losing weight, but this isn't working.  I'm thinking that wiring my jaw shut is the resort I am to now.  Anyone wanna do it for me?

I am excited for disneyland and for taking Jericho there.  I know he will be so excited and much more into it that he was the last time at 16 months! 

Just praying I make it to the end of the half and get my awesome medal to frame and then I can say I did the Disneyland half.  :)

summer updates :) you can see by this picture, potty training is going well :)  Jericho likes to take a peek to see exactly what's going on down in that potty.  Such a funny kid.  He actually does really good most of the time.  Just an accident here and there and of course he isn't dry through the night.  We are getting there though.

He will be starting pre-school in September.  I'm a little (ok a LOT) freaked out about the whole thing.  I am completely wigged out that my baby is old enough to be going to pre-school.  It just doesn't seem possible.  I know it will be good for him to be around other kids, to learn to sit for periods of time, to listen....etc.  It's just a little much for this momma to take :(

Because of potty training, Jericho is famous for being naked 99.9% of the time.  It's become pretty normal at our house to have people over and there is it's no big deal.  And of course he is completely fascinated with his boy parts.  Shhsh.  Boys.  I have sooo many pictures, adorable pictures of Jericho and his nakedness...but alas cannot post them for public viewing :)  Just know...he is cute and he has his dad's bum:)

Jericho loves to be outside, loves playing in water and mostly giving his mom a run for her money.  He has learned how to get outside by himself and has used this to his advantage when mom is sleepy - and as a result he get into "time out" quite often.  He loves Thomas the Train, Buzz and Woody, Jake and the Neverland Pirattes, Muppet Treasure Island, batman, many things.  He is definately obsessed with trains and pirates right now.  I was at the mall today with my sister and we were in a toy store and there was a rollercoaster set up and Jericho totally enthralled. He was squealing, jumping, and yelling...he loved it.  So, when I said we had to go...He threw a classic temper tantrum.  Threw himself on the ground face down, screaming bloody murder and kicking his arms and legs.  Awesome.  Oh, the glories of being a parent are fantastic sometimes :)

Wade is working on finishing the basement of his dad's house.  We finished a kitchen and are now working on the bathroom.  Quite a process, but it is coming along nicely.  Wade is doing awesome in school.  He is on a little hiatus right now, but will be back to the grind in August.

I ran the Hobbler half marathon last saturday.  It was great - and super hard.  Glad I did it.  Now, I need to train some more for the Disneyland Half marathon on Sept 2.  My parents, Jericho and I will be going to Disneyland for a whole week and I will be doing the race that Sunday morning.  So excited!  Can't wait to go to my favorite place in the whole wide world!! :) As for now I'm working a lot - it's kicking my bum - and just taking care of my boys.  Life is good.

That's all the updates for now on the Wade and Brynn Haskell bunch :)

Cowboy hats and potty time

Look at my adorable goofy little cowboy.  Loves gloves, boots and cowboy hats.

We are in the process of potty training and we have a champion peeing machine on our hands.  #2?  Not so much.  Ah well.  I'm guessing that will come with time
He loves to tell us when he has to go potty.  Then he has to watch the pee-pee go "bye-bye" and then it's treat time.  Of course there are lots of high fives, congratulations, screaming with glee and mom doing goofy "happy dances".  Hey...I'll do whatever to keep this kid enthused with going potty :)
He is so adorable and so sweet.  I think we will keep him! :)
