Before we say hello to 2017, let’s take a look at 2016. For the Jenkinsons, 2016 was a great year!
In January, Kyler turned 4
In February, we got a new couch
and found out we were pregnant
In March, Hudson turned 2
In April, we celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary by eating dinner at home and drinking sparkling grape juice
In May, I turned 30 and we went to the Keys to celebrate
We also announced that we were expecting Baby J #3
In June, tragedy struck our city
We hosted the victims, their families and the President and Vice President at the arena and while it was incredibly sad, it was one of the most impactful days of my career.
In July, I got a new car
In August, Kyler started VPK
and Chris turned 37
In September, Hudson was potty trained
and we celebrated Baby J’s upcoming arrival
In October, we had a hurricane
that thankfully moved east a bit so it wasn’t bad at all
Hudson bumped his chin and got 6 stitches
Kyler finished her 4th soccer season (and scored her first goal!)
Ammo gave a huge scare health wise but is stable now
and we finally met our baby BOY Lincoln!
In November, we hosted Thanksgiving
In December, we celebrated Christmas all month long
and Nana and P’Pa came to visit
As we look forward to 2017, I look forward to celebrating more birthdays, watching Lincoln grow and learn new things every day, getting back in shape and not being pregnant, doing some renovations on the house, and enjoying our new family of 5. Kyler will be starting kindergarten this year, Hudson will be a big 3 year old, we will celebrate Lincoln’s 1st birthday and my mom turns 60 this year. We also look forward to traveling again this year.
My hope is that we will be able to take in all the memories because time is flying by. Kyler, Hudson and Lincoln are the light of my eyes and I am so lucky to be their mom. I will continue to spend all of my free time and energy to making more memories, playing, laughing and enjoying them because I never want to take it for granted. While Chris and I may be exhausted, we would rather get out there and see life through their eyes. My goal for the next several years is to travel more with them. We love our family vacations and now that Lincoln is here (and we are done having kids) we will be able to start planning some fun places to visit. Hello 2017, can’t wait to see what you have in store for us!
