I know I promised pictures from the trip, but unfortunately the majority of my pictures are still on a computer in Yucaipa. So, to help make the wait a little easier, here are the most recent Jax Stats as of August 25:

Age: 9 months 3 weeks. (we were a little late on his check-up because of our trip)
Weight: 20.5 lbs (25-50th%)
Length: 29 inches (50-75th%)
Head: 47 cm (90th%)

He is one active little boy with a giant head. "Well, that's a huge noggin. That's a virtual planetoid." (what movie?)

And he got 4 teeth this month! The bottom 2 came in the day before we left, and the top 2 poked through sometime while we were in CA. He likes to show them to people by biting them on the shoulder. It's great fun. He even left marks on Ashlyn with the new chompers the other day. He bites and then laughs. Don't know what I am going to do with that kid. Gotta love him!

We are going to Grandma's house...

What fun it's going to be! The beginning of August all of the Horspool kids were going to be together with the exception of Matt (who is on a mission) and me. Unbeknownst to my mom, we were able to join in on the festivities! It was hard work keeping it a secret, but her reaction made it worth it. (Jason's Edit --- CHECK IT OUT!!!! She did cry, but I left it out!! :) Taylor had a pretty good reaction too)

It was so much fun seeing everyone and having all EIGHTEEN grandkids together for the first time. And the family is still growing! Taylor and Aubree will have #19 this October!

Front row: Andrew (2), Grace (4), Raegan (3), Josh (11 mo), Caitlyn (10), Alexandria (10), Jack (8 mo), Ashlyn (2), Jaxon (9 mo), Ryan (5)

Back row: Staci (5), Riley (5), Madison (2), Emilee (12), Kira (6), Spencer (7), Brooklyn (2 mo), Brinley (9)

How do you get 18 kids to stay still for pictures? Why with a little bribery of course!

Stay tuned for a super long picture post of the fun we've been having!

Once there was an... Ashlyn

While going to pick up Grandpa from the airport for his quick layover in Honolulu, the candid camera caught Ashlyn singing, until she busted the cameraman. Her reaction is priceless.

This is the same trip, longer video, and she didn't turn it off this time. Not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing though...

Other rather humorous things Ashlyn has said recently:

"Dear Heavenly Father, please bless that we can watch Word World... (A PBS show)"

After she beat Heather in a game of memory, and Heather declared Ashlyn the winner:

"Ashlyn, you're the winner!" "Mommy... we're both winners..."

And as some of you in the Tang Family know, Uncle Sam (Dai Bak), and Auntie Lily came to Honolulu. We saw him at church and then went to Dim Sum later that week.

It was good to see them, as they were visiting Kenneth Fong, the man who baptized Uncle Sam, and who just so happens to be in the Makiki ward with us.
Hooray visitors! Grandpa pictures to come.
