Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

2 Nov

Finally we had jacket weather here in Florida!

We have practicing a lot on the tricycle lately…. she is asking Santa for a big girl bike this Christmas 🙂

Just a normal night for us. Love these three ❤

Hudson’s weekly/monthly photographs are starting to become difficult and I know this will only continue and he starts to move more.

We had our home opener the other night and passed out Dunkin Donuts to our partners. Pure Magic!

This little guy had bananas in Cheerio dust for the first time. He did okay as he is trying to get used to the different textures

We had a BUSY weekend. Halloween kicked it off Friday night.

Pirate Fairy (part of Tinkerbell story for those of you that don’t watch Disney Junior) and Tic Toc Croc

Sweet Crocy

Hudson and his bud Crosby

Kyler and her friend Kenley!

Andddd we’re off!

Trick or Treat!

Poor Hudson passed out about 15 minutes into it.

After about a hour and half of Trick or Treating, we headed home and finished passing out candy. Kyler got her chair out and sat with Chris and loved to help out. When kids would walk up she would grab the bowl and say “oh there are kids coming, I need my bowl” and then proceed to give them 2-3 pieces each and say bye to them. Adorable.

She also did a good job of eating the candy as well 🙂 Caught her red handed!

She told me to leave her alone after I took this then moved away from me with the bowl.

I love my mini!

The weather was absolutely GORGEOUS this weekend and we loved being outside!

We celebrated Crosby’s 1st birthday this weekend!

Of course the girls had fun playing with his new toys

That night, the temps were in the 50s which meant it was time for a fire!

and what is a fire without smores and hot cocoa, yum!

Snuggles with the chocolate face

Aunt JJ got Hudson this hat a while ago and we haven’t had the weather to wear it. It may be a bit snug but it works and is super cute!

Ready to cheer on the Patriots!

This afternoon, Kyler and I headed to the Science Center to celebrate another birthday. She loves her animals so we had to hangout by the alligators and turtles for a while.

Checking out the lizard

They brought out a snake and to my surprise, she wanted to pet it. She is pretty fearless.

Diggin’ for dino bones

She is cool with the snake yet she gets scared of the fake dinosaur. Go figure.

Kyler and the birthday boy Ethan!

We spent some time outside when we got home, again enjoying the nice Fall weather.

Good luck Chris, this one is going to be a handful ❤

We had a super busy but really fun weekend partying it up! Happy November!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

26 Oct

Big Foot!

Playroom shenanigans

He has been doing this with his hands recently and I have no clue why. So funny!

Picked up these on sale this week for H!

Kyler headed to Grandma and Poppa’s Friday and stayed the night. They hit up Boo at the Zoo (Brevard Zoo)!

Saturday, we ran Hudson over to meet up with her and then Chris and I headed to Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival. We haven’t had a night out, just the two of us, in I honestly don’t know how long!

The park was PACKED but we didn’t have anywhere else to be and didn’t have to stick to a schedule so we didn’t mind waiting in line and figuring out what to order next!

First stop was Puerto Rico for some Sangria and some rum drink for Chris

Then we back tracked to Scotland because we realized they had scotch and I wanted the scallops

Baby Scotch for him!

Flight of Beers in Belgium. I liked the cider the best! We also picked up a waffle with chocolate and could have eaten about 3 of those!

Date night!

One of my favs was of course Poland. We picked up some piergoi’s and this yummy drink! It’s called a frozen szarlotka

Flight of Riesling in Germany! Chris picked up a brat here too.

We had to stop in Singapore and get a Singapore Sling and I wanted to try the mahi. Chris’ sister and her family live in Singapore so we felt like we should try some things out. Both were good!

Another Riesling and beer flight from the Farm Fresh Florida stand.

Last stop of the night… Desserts and Champagne!

Cheers!

Not pictured was stops in Canada (beer), France (yummy drink and food for both of us), America (beer and lobster alfredo-yummy), Italy (ravioli and cannoli), and Australia (great shrimp dish).

Today was a busy day! We rushed over to Merritt Island to pick up the kids then headed straight to Sanford to celebrate my friend Erika and her new baby on the way! This was no ordinary baby shower, this was more of a party! Kyler had fun in the bounce house!

Trying to take a picture of the 3 of them and this is how it turned out…..

This afternoon we attended a Fall festival at the church in Avalon Park

They had a little petting zoo so Kyler loved being able to touch the animals

Sweet little bunny!

If pigs could just stay this size, I am pretty sure I would have one

Hey Goat!

The girls got to hop on the train too

Sweet Hudson was there too!

Best picture I could get

Kyler got her face painted and opted for a butterfly

It was a whirlwind week and weekend and this will be another week just like it as well. I am looking forward to a much slower and relaxed November!

Kyler: 2.5 Years Old

26 Jul

Today, my sweet and crazy girl is 2.5 years old!  She is starting to seem less and less like a little toddler and more and more like a little girl. We have full on conversations at times and she is starting to help out around the house (SCORE!).  Every night at dinner I asked her what she did at school/Grandma’s and she tells me what she did and who she played with. It’s really cute. Lately, I have been asking her to help me with some small things like letting the dogs outside, letting them back in (which is so funny because she yells for them and they don’t listen), getting something off the table for me or putting her dirty dishes in the sink. It sure helps when I have my hands tied with her baby brother!

She loves to sing her songs, dance, do her ABC’s and can even spell her name now (and recognized it when it’s spelled out!), and counts t0 20. She is one smart cookie. For quite a while she went on a boycott and wouldn’t let us read to her but she has finally stopped that and we are reading again! Kyler has gotten much better about dinner time. We still have our struggles, however, it is much better than it used to be.

Bedtime is the pain right now. She tries to find every excuse to delay bedtime. Potty Training is not helping. As of this week, we are trying the “ignoring her once she is in bed” approach and I have to be honest, it is so hard. It’s hard when you hear her sweet voice asking you to cuddle but that is all part of her ploy. Once she has you you aren’t getting away. My mom even mentioned that although I was pretty slick as a kid she has me beat. The kids pediatrician asked me how Potty Training was going and I was going over some things and she laughed and kept repeating how I am in trouble and she is going to give me a hard time when she is older. Gotta love that independent streak.

Kyler is quite the little fishy if you haven’t noticed. She is swims SO well and LOVES the water. ISR was such a great decision and I feel so comfortable with her in the water.

She has quite the personality if you haven’t noticed already. She is super goofy and silly which makes for some funny times around our house. If you didn’t see, last week I started a new blog series called a life of a toddler and I will post those goofy things she says on there.

She is definitely slimming out. She is still wearing 2T (going on 1.5 years now) and some 3T things. I honestly think some things that used to be tight on her are acutally getting a little loose as her baby belly is going away. It’s like her feet stopped growing too. She is still wearing size 7’s.

Things she loves:

Movies, Disney, lions, puzzles, princesses, books, Hudson, airplanes, her park, swimming, ice cream, Pirate Booty, yogurt, grapes, applesauce, chicken

Kyler, happy 2 1/2 years old! Can’t believe you are this old already! We love you and watching you grow 🙂

Kyler & Hudson’s Baptism

10 Jun

This past week, Kyler and Hudson were baptized at home. We don’t belong to a church right now, however, we still wanted the kids to be baptized. About a year ago I contacted the gentleman that married Chris and I and asked if they did baptisms and I was thrilled to find out they did. We were going to set it up but then I became pregnant with Hudson so we decided to wait until he was born. The perfect time to do it was when Chris’s family was in town visiting. We kept it small and simple and it was great!

After the baptism, Chris and I made a nice dinner for everyone and enjoyed the evening. We are so blessed to have two beautiful and happy children and we thank God each and every day that He brought them into our lives.
