Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

25 Sep

I work with great people. Audra kicked off Fall with these caramel apple bars made just for me<3

The little man decided to do his hair with my expensive face cream….

Look how happy he is

Oh Hudson

Love not looking at a parking garage anymore

Last weekend we decided to pull the trigger and potty train Hudson. I HATE potty training, mainly because Kyler scarred me for life. Hud is doing much better than she did and after the 1st 2 days, he has only had 1 accident a day and is only wearing pull-ups at night. Ps… 2T boxer briefs are seriously the cutest

He is also moving into the stage where it is taking him longer and longer to wind down. Love checking on him before bed to see what he got into and how he is sleeping

Kyler had a bright and early soccer game on Saturday and did great!

It may be Fall but it’s still hot enough for the pool. The kiddos got a quick swim in before dinner.

Kyler has been asking to go to my parents lately so today seemed like a good day. I told her I wanted to take a picture of her and she instantly went to this pose.

I mean look at her sas❤

Kyler has been playing teach a bit so it was cute to walk in tonight and she her teaching her friends “ABCs, shapes and numbers”

Busy busy week at work ahead for me, 4 weeks left until I go on maternity leave and 5 weeks until we get to meet the newest Jenkinson!!!

Poor girl wasn’t feeling soccer practice

I don’t blame her, when I got home and took her temp, it was 102.3!

We headed to the doctors the next morning and turns out, she had strep. You wouldn’t know it because she is trooper!

Dippin Dots at work… yes please

Saturday morning brought a hot soccer game. She wasn’t really into it but I am not sure how much better she was feeling.

Almost 33 weeks… getting there!

I hit the stores early Saturday and my favorite candles were on sale!

This kid must be growing. He ate half a basket of chips, 3.5 mini quesadillas (thanks Kyler) and a plate of rice.

We enjoyed the Gilbo’s company… the girls are too funny.

Love these two!

We headed to the bowling alley today for our cousin Parks’ birthday. It was Hudson’s first time bowling and he liked it!

Happy Birthday!

She loves her cousin Emma!

Always fun with the little ones

Hud the stud!

We had fun playing in the arcade afterwards. Kyler did great at Deal or No Deal

We got home and enjoyed some football while Kyler played with her “pet” lovebugs. She said they love her and they are all her friends. Awesome.

I am looking for a SICK free week in the Jenkinson household!!!

5 Sep

So last week I left you with Hudson having the stomach bug and he was on the mend. And then he woke up Monday. And he wasn’t…..

While on Sunday, he seemed almost back to normal, it was like he started over Monday morning. After a visit to the doctors, he spent the rest of the day resting on the couch.

Doesn’t he look so sad???😦 He was able to get some waffles down… and play with Legos

I had a work conference in town Monday – Wednesday that brought on of my favorite people back into town. Fun times with these two.

Tuesday was a LONG day for this preggo. We capped of the night with Mickey Ears, dinner and Fantasmic at Hollywood Studios.

That said, I woke up Wednesday under the weather, apparently catching whatever Hudson had. I spent the entire day in bed, sleeping on and off. Stomach bug + preggo = not fun.

By Thursday, I braved work as a half human and somehow survived. Kyler woke up and sick and went to Grandmas.😦 That night, I was laid out on the couch, again. Ammo loves to protect my belly towards the end of my pregnancies, he did with Kyler and Hudson too❤

Poor girl was sick and you would never know it.

They loved the Mickey ears!

I had Friday off which I was looking forward to just relaxing but Kyler was still sick so she stayed home with me. It was a long day of snuggling and taking it easy.

This weekend, we thought we would hit up Disney Springs for a couple of hours just to get out of the house now that we were all 90%. It started raining so we found shelter in the Lego store. Kids (and Chris) were happy!

They had their game faces on…. Go Knights and Go Penn State!

She loves her Friends Legos

The day turned out to be a pretty one and we enjoyed the new part of Disney Springs.

While Hudson snoozed, we treated ourselves to dessert at Sprinkles.

Cupcake Sundae, um yes

We rushed home to make the Penn State game. Kyler loves her dad❤

This face…. ice queen when she wants to be

But then a complete angel the next. Go figure🙂

They love each other and I love them❤

The kid is obsessed with Star Wars. I have been keeping all these in the playroom, however, they just end up in his room so I stopped fighting and caved.

Because why not make cupcakes for fun!


Today, Kyler and I snuck out for a girl’s trip and got pedicures. She’s been asking for a while.

Love you sweet girl!!

We also spent a lot of work on the nursery this weekend and it’s done!!! Here is a sneak peak. Now I can rest🙂

Sad my long weekend is over. Loved spending all my time with my family and soaking up some quality time with them. This pregnancy has not been easy on me this last month and I can’t imagine it will get any easier as I approach the finish line so any time I can get just hanging out with them, I will take it!

Kyler’s first day of VPK, August 15th, 2016!

Sleepy storm trooper

Celebrating cousin Cole’s birthday with some old fashioned PE fun!

Pretty girls❤

Do you not want to just bite his face!?!??

Sunday Funday with the Gilbos

National Dog Day and our fur babies Ammo, Caya and Maggie❤

Friday was Chris’ birthday. It was my fast Friday off for the summer and Chris took the day off. Our plans were to pick the kids up after lunch and then head out to a fun chocolate factory dinner with Star Wars fireworks…. that is until school called at 10am saying Hudson was sick and threw up. Poor guy. Needless to say, plans changed.

Snuggling on the couch.

Happy Birthday babe!

Kyler made Chris a card… with donuts🙂


I ran to the store, picked up some things to make dinner and a cake. Chris wanted a fun dessert so I tried my best to whip up something. Vanilla cake with peanut butter cups, ice cream sandwiches, cool whip icing with peanut butter chocolate sauce, caramel, pretzels and peanut butter cups. Not bad!

Chris and Kyler ate dinner together while I snuggled the little man on the couch. He couldn’t keep anything down the first day😦 He managed to perk up and sing Happy Birthday to dad only to follow that by getting sick😦 (Don’t mind the mess in the background, ha!)

Next morning, Kyler had her first soccer game of the year!

I wasn’t sure if Hud and I would make it but he ate a little bit and seemed to be better so we loaded up and went.

I’m so glad I did because Kyler did AWESOME and had her best game yet. She almost scored 2 goals and was really into it. I feel her first real goal coming on soon🙂

Today, Kyler and headed back to Merritt Island to see my bestie Jenn because she is back in town. Kyler bowled for the first time and loved it!

Silly kiddos!

Miss her!!!

It was fun catching up with friends I wish I saw more often and snuggling with sweet baby Elle❤

He loves his Ammo!

Busy week ahead and praying and hoping the little guy wakes up good as new tomorrow!!!

14 Aug

I made a quick day trip to Wisconsin for work the other week. Deep fried cheese curds were on the menu.

First flight started at 6:15am… 2 flights on the way up and 2 flights on the way back. I got home at 11:30 that night. Super tiring for this preggo!

These 2…

We celebrated Kacie’s 4th birthday and Elsa showed up!

This girl rocked her dance game on the Wii

We busted out the Nintendo for some old school fun.

Kyler does so well putting her Legos together now! Hudson is obsessed too🙂

This guy loves Fen… also loves to chase Fen around too. Poor cat.

When you get made because Alexa doesn’t listen

They love Can’t Stop The Feeling!

Tomorrow is Kyler’s first day of VPK and I can’t believe it!!

31 Jul

Chris picked up the Amazon Echo and the kids love to make it play music.

It was time to say goodbye to my old car.

and hello to my new car! My old car had 3 rows, however, you could move the 2nd row up with a car seat attached. Being that I need the flexibility of the 3rd row, we were on the market.

Silly girl!

Target run with her bestie

This girl… she sleeps with all sorts of weird things… like a ton of clips in her hair

Hudson’s new dresser is here! Just need a bookcase and his new “big boy” room is done.

I celebrated my friend Alyssa’s birthday at a local Mexican restaurant with great friends!

We really need to do this more but we let the turtles out to roam the yard. Jelly was busy.

Ammo was never far away

Kyler is the sweetest and loves her momma! She told Grandma she wanted to buy me flowers. She was so excited to give me the “beautiful roses” because she loved me, I was sweet and beautiful.❤❤❤

I found some baby birds on the ground in my planter. Long story but I totally forgot to tell Chris about them until 11:30 at night at which point we found one in a different spot but it wouldn’t move. I was super upset and thought they were dead. I was SUPER excited to find them alive a couple days later. Chris moved them back to their nest and their momma has been taken care of then.

A month and half ago, I was honored to help put on an event for the President of United States. I did not expect to meet him so it was an awesome surprise. I just got the photo and this one is a keeper for sure!

Can’t forget about Joe!

Chris and I have been running errands in the middle of the day now. Hudson refuses to sleep at home so we take turns running into the store. Works for us!

She loves Kylo Ren

and this one loves Darth Vader. He walked around the store for the rest of the time like this.

And pretty much the rest of the day too

Silly bird fell out again so back he goes. Thankfully the whole “don’t touch a baby bird or the mom will leave it” is just a myth!

After a day of cleaning, they got in a quick swim to beat the heat

So tired he closed his eyes while he ate then went right to bed.

Bedtime stories❤

So Hud cries when we put him to bed everynight. He always has since we took the paci away and year and half ago. He has a gate at his door so he can’t wander around upstairs. So we put him to bed and leave, he gets out immediately and cries at the gate for a minute then quickly switches to this routine. You have to repeat him or he will keep repeating it over and over. And if you don’t… he will ask where you are and if you don’t answer, he cries. Sometimes it lasts a minute, sometimes longer (did it to Chris for 30 minutes the other night). When he is done, he shuts the door and puts himself to bed. I think it’s hilarious (and adorable).

Hudson loves Star Wars. Probably a horrible idea that he has a light saber but oh well. That said, he can be the sweetest thing ever!!

Lunchtime with these cheeseballs

We had dinner and frozen yogurt with Poppa for his birthday!

They love their Grandma and Poppa… they pretty much ignore us when they are around.

Poor Kyler was so upset she couldn’t have a sleepover with Grandma and Poppa😦

This is what it’s like to eat with Hudson… all of the things within his reach end up in front of us… ya know why not try and eat the jam packets, lick the pepper shaker and throw it and throw sugar packets.

Pool temp at 1:30pm today… it got up to 96 by 4pm!

My mini❤

Little man hasn’t been napping at home anymore so I was super happy to find him crashed on the couch.

He popped up for some crackers with Kyler

Then passed out again🙂

It was a quick weekend that seemed to fly by way too fast. Can’t believe it’s middle July already, that I am 24 weeks preggo and baby 3 will be here less than 4 months!
