The Whirlwind Band



Japheth joined a band back in late December 2008. The band is mainly country but he's starting to sing some originals, blues, Chris Issac type stuff and more modern songs! Our family and friends go to watch and support him everytime he plays out. We would love to plan a time where the Phillips' Family, Kari, Sam's and that gang can come to watch him play...let's plan it!!! They just went into the studio last weekend to record an original song that Japheth wrote called, 'family man'. It's a great song now...however when I first heard it, mama wasn't happy!!! :) You can check out his page a@ www.myspace/whirlwindband.com or his personal myspace www.myspace/japhethsimpson.com. Let me know if you have trouble checkin' this out and i'll send you the link via email.

Simpson Update!!

Our Beautiful little girl...Addison posing for a picture @ Grammy and Grandpy's House!!!


Addison is getting so big...she's already 19 months old and will soon be a big sister. We have scheduled a repeat c-section on June 2nd, but I think the baby will come earlier...just a 'mama's' intution!!! Addison was 2 weeks early and my Dr. says I am measuring 2 weeks ahead when they measure....so we will see. Some of you might not know but we have moved...this is a picture of Addison in the living room of our new house holding Mommy's purse. We love our new house and are trying to get everything in place before the new baby arrives in 5 weeks. We chose to not find out the sex of the new baby...we think this will be something special to know right @ delivery....and I think I get a thrill knowing it irritates most of my family members! ha.

Baby on Leash (Backpack)

I haven't posted for a few months...a lot has happened since September. Addison is not only walking but she's running - she started walking shortly after the last post in September. She has so much personality and is talking tons. She will repeat anything you ask her to and it's so clear. She has 7 teeth now but still not eating very much - she's quite picky and chokes a lot. Jase loves to share everything with her so we have to keep a good eye on her when it comes to food. She loves to go outside and it happens to be one of her favorite words...always saying 'outside'. It's so cute. She does not want to be held when we are out shopping and Mommy kinda freaks out because she's so fast. Before I had kids, I was that girl who made fun of mothers who had their children on these little leach type backpacks...but having my own little girl now, I understand where these mothers were coming from. Japheth still will not let me use it when he is with me - he's one of 'those dads' apparently!!! But it's not worth losing a baby over it , so i'll use it- and with this video - the $10 purchase at the local flee market was well worth it - enjoy!!

Uncle Rick and Uncle Zach...picture should explain itself!

This trip was very fast but well worth it. Japheth is one of 7 children and there are 14 grandkids...Addison being the 14th! There was a professional photographer there so those pictures will be posted as soon as I get them. We had little sleep and a lot of drinkin'....Duh, we were at the Simpson household. I thank everyone for their hospitality and the opportunity to have every kid there along with every grandkid. Who knows when and if that will ever happen again. We hope to travel there again soon...most likely hunting season...
