Oh they did so good to come up with 100! Holy moly! I loved the "buys us treats at the store when we're good." that is soooo Jer. I wanna see the crazy eyes sometime!

Ricky and Janessa Cazier said...

Wow! That's an impressive list. Sounds like some lucky kids! You need to add "takes us to lots of family reunions". You are a super dad, Jason. Hope you had a happy father's day!!! We can't wait to see all of you. Jason, you are Ricky's saving grace with all this Jolley time coming up:)

Ricky and Janessa Cazier said...

Oh, I hope that didn't come out wrong. Ricky is very excited to go to the family reunion and hang out with all of us Jolley's. He's just glad to have a fellow brother-in-law to hang with.
