Kid Going Ape...

In seven days we will celebrate my sweet little Mr's birthday.  He's going to be five...that's kind of a big deal.  Every year around his birthday I go through old photos and videos, and I am reminded of one fact:  I think my sweet little Mr. is the funniest person ever (actually he's tied with the little Miss).  The little guy says the funniest things, comes up with the best get-ups, is constantly reenacting movies and stories, and is overall entertaining.  It began at an early age when he discovered the Johnny Jump Up:

Wow...those were some crazy walls.  We were in the middle of tearing up our house for the remodel, and the little Mr. was in the middle of tearing it up in the jumper.  Being new parents, we figured all kids went ape in those things...how naive.  We quickly realized that the little Mr. had talent.  So much so, that we submitted the video proof to 'AFV.'  We totally knew we would be one of the last five families competing for the grand prize.  We could totally see ourselves sitting in the studio with our kid on our lap, all of us beaming from ear to ear as Tom Bergeron announced our video, "Kid Going Ape in jumper!  Submitted by the Jackson famillllllyyyyy!"  Well, our video didn't get picked.  But, we know it's stinkin' hilarious.

Happy Monday!

Yes, It IS stinkin' HILARIOUS...Your video probably didn't get picked because there wasn't a dog sitting there licking him in the mouth as he flew past...LOL...Ethan was and IS still hilarious. I can't believe he's going to be 5 years old. Love NANA

It's hanging from the wood trim...we have really thick wood trim in our house so the jumper thingy can clip above it.
