Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

16 Jan

He is so peaceful ❀

Smiles for days

We visited our new friend Kate this week. She was 5 days old here πŸ™‚

Lincoln and Kate ❀

Her first week of maternity leave and my last… too bad they didn’t overlap more!

Beautiful day so Lincoln and I went for a walk/jog

His face when he woke up from his nap haha

I think the pups are going to miss me too… although Princess Caya may not care…. head on pillow just like a person

We have kept up with the healthy eating and have found quite a few recipes we really like. Chris has already lost 11 pounds in 2 weeks and my old clothes are starting to fit again!

Bathtime for the boys

Getting our tummy time in

Don’t they look pretty? They tasted great too! BBQ Chicken Pizza Zucchini Boats

When Kyler was 3 we talked about getting her ears pierced when she turned 4. Well when she turned 4 she told me she wanted them when she was 5…. and now that her birthday is next week, it was time to get her ears pierced! She did AWESOME. She cried for a second but wasn’t too bad.

She picked out ladybugs of course!

Meanwhile, Hudson has been helping Chris build the new table.

We got some play time in this weekend with friends. These are some crazy kiddos!

Hudson and Lincoln ❀

Well, tomorrow I go back to work and have to leave this big guy at daycare. I have a lot of feelings about that and they aren’t the most positive but I know everything will be okay and he is in good hands… just got to rip the band aid off. You think this being my third maternity leave it would get easier but it doesn’t… in a way it’s much harder.

10 Jan

Chris and I started working out and eating healthy in the new year.Β Egg muffins meal prep for Chris!

Just because

Spaghetti Squash with skinny chicken parm… so good!

Just building a table

Baby boy hasn’t been feeling well this week so we went to the doctor… just a head cold thankfully

The kids never get to go to a Magic game because I am always working so I figured we could go so I could help Chris with the kids. They loved it!

Lincoln’s first game!

Trying out my new Christmas gift

Saturday was a busy day….One of my favorites was in town so we met up at the Science Center for a little bit

One of my closest friends had her first sweet baby this past week and she couldn’t be more perfect!

Then I headed to another friend’s birthday dinner at Kobe. Just hanging with the girl Alexa!

Afterwards, we made a bonfire and stayed warm for a bit… it was freezing out!

Such a hunk ❀

Hudson has been a bit of a mad man these past few weeks… will not miss this stage

hey bud!

Kyler loves to take my phone and take pictures…I guess she was going for the artist sideways lounge shot?

Sundays are for meal prep now

$3 steal at Target and I’m in love ❀

I am in my last week of leave and I have such mixed emotions. Going to make the best of it!

3 Jan

Christmas break was here which meant the kids stayed home from school for a bit.

Funny how much they all look a like

Sporting the blanket Nana made him

Hudson liked Lincoln’s hat too

Bed time books

This was at the beginning of the break when the kids loved each other

Go Pats!!

The weather has been warm enough that they went for a swim

It’s too cold for Lincoln and I so we just watched

Chris and I were able to sneak out one night to grab a drink. Freedom!

This poor guy got a cold on Christmas and has been fighting it ever since

“Mom, let’s take pictures”

She looks for one…

too busy to look for the other… oh to be a kid

New Year’s Eve came rolling around and we obviously didn’t do anything. I had yoga pants, no makeup, baggy shirt and got to rock my sweet boy and I was okay with that.

Toys, wine and a monitor… NYE mom style

After my in-laws left, there has been a lot of cleaning yet it is still a disaster…I do have 2 new helpers now in the shape of a disc.

We headed over to my parents on New Year’s Day for dinner. Tink loves Hud ❀

Meanwhile, Grandma scored these super cute MK boots for K for $22.

This pretty much sums up Christmas break. Exhausted and ready for 2017 to begin.

Monday’s got us like….

Publix run with my little man

Just love his sweet face

Thank you Amazon Prime Now! Ordered the Nintendo and it showed up a hour later

Christmas hunt of 2016 is over, thankfully!

Happy boy and happy mamma

Kyler had a Christmas performance at school and nailed it! Pretty sure she sang the loudest and danced the most πŸ™‚

We raced off to the Magic’s Christmas party at Light Up UCF. Christmas, Florida style.

The kiddos tried ice skating for the first time, too cute.

Thankfully Kyler had some awesome helpers

And Lincoln had snuggles the entire time πŸ™‚

Ice sledding!

Christmas train!

Kyler convinced Keisha to ride the ferris wheel with her, she is definitely not scared of much

Pretty sure Kyler told me this wasn’t the real Santa Claus… she has now met 3 this season and she is definitely smart enough to know they aren’t the same.

Some of my favorite people!

The next morning, I surprise Kyler at school for her holiday party

That pose!

We also celebrated her friend’s birthday party at My Gym!

Even Hud had some fun pushing his sister around!

Sunday we decided to head to Disney one last time this season and it was HOT and HUMID out. Felt like summer 😦

My minis

Hudson isn’t the dare devil his sister is but he does like the fast choo choo ride πŸ™‚

And of course, little Lincoln snoozed away

When we got home, we made some reindeer chow

Shake it up!

Bring on Christmas!

11 Dec

She loves to hold Lincoln and it’s becoming harder and harder for her to do so. Pretty soon, he will be too big!

Our newborn/family photos came back and they are awesome! More on that but here are some sneak peeks

Tummy time is very exciting for him

Lincoln’s stocking came in! Chris’ aunt has made all of the kiddos and mine and they are so pretty!

Christmas wrapping has begun. Perks of being on maternity leave, I don’t have to wait until last minute!

We also started working out and eating healthy this week! Lettuce wrap tacos were yummy!

I feel like this cutie is changing by the day and I am just trying to soak it all in

Friday was a cold snap and it also happened to be the day we were heading to Disney for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Lincoln pretty much looked like this the entire time.

Jingle Cruise!

The princes were out with the princesses for the party so it gave us a chance to meet Prince Charming

We also got to meet Hudson’s favorite, Princess Elena. We are fairly certain he has a huge crush on her. He LOVES the show and was starring at Elena the entire time. He even gave her a kiss on the cheek being the ladies man he is.

We didn’t have time to really ride many rides (that is okay, not why we were there) but we managed to sneak a few in.

Hudson’s first time on this roller coaster and it’s so funny. I promise he had fun and asked to go on it again!

This guy is a trooper πŸ™‚ He really is the best dad and hubby and he is all mine ❀

The castle is beautiful this time of year. I could stare at it all night.

In between the show and the parade, the girls snuck off to Starbucks to get some coffee to warm up. We also enjoyed “snow” on Main Street

The parade was packed but Kyler had the best seat in the house.

Mickey kicking things off

The toy solider band was so cool!

The big man himself

His face says it all πŸ™‚

One of the best parts of the party is the free cookie and hot beverage stops around the park

The holiday firework show was beyond great. The finale was spot on.

More snow and this time Hudson got to play. Can’t wait to take them to real snow someday!

This guy finally woke up at the end!

I am so glad we went and my parents came along. This is by far my favorite time of the year and the kiddos loved the Christmas Party.

The next day, we took a ride out to the Santa’s Tree Farm and met up with some of Kyler’s friends.

This girl is fearless and loves her animals

Kyler named this goat Sparkle and now can’t stop talking about how she wants to buy a baby goat and take care of it

This guy had fun being one of the big kids and didn’t skip a beat

The kids had a blast playing and jumping!

Today was spent going out to breakfast and lounging around the house after a busy weekend! 2 weeks until Christmas and we are getting so excited!

Just happy and snoozin’ away

Can’t wait to see what kind of trouble these 2 get into

We hosted Friendsgiving and it was great to spend time with friends!

Color-in tablecloth…. brilliant

Lincoln’s ready for the big game!

Turkey time!

Let’s eat!

Kyler loves to be one of the ladies πŸ™‚

Love these people!

Yesterday we headed down to Disney Springs to meet up with friends in town. If you haven’t been, check it out, it is so nice now!

We had lunch at the t-rex place which kept the kids entertained

Can’t miss out on visiting the lego store!

It was a funΒ weekend with friends but looking forward to relaxing (and catching up on sleep) with Lincoln this week!!

Ammo is still on the steroid and ever since we lowered his dose, he is up to his mischievous ways but wants to eat everything and anything. Case in point, we keep the cat food on the top perch and he found a way to get to it.

This chunky dude is having a hard time fitting in his 3 month clothes

We decorated for Christmas before Thanksgiving this year because, well I just wanted to. Christmas pjs for everyone!

hello cute boy

We hosted Thanksgiving at our house this year.

We had lots of great foods, tons of leftovers and great company. After everyone left and the kitchen was straightened up, we crashed on the couch. Perfect Thanksgiving.

The nights have been great for bike rides and trips to the park

We are hoping Santa brings him a new bike for Christmas

Speaking of Santa, we loaded up yesterday and went to the mall to see Santa. We had this puppy loaded up!

Funny story…. about 3 years ago, we took Kyler to the Tampa Zoo for her 2nd birthday and we had just gotten this stroller and I was pregnant with Hudson. A lady with the same stroller had 3 kids; 1 baby, 1 toddler and 1 pre-schooler and said how much she loved the stroller and this is what it looks like with 3 kids. I laughed and remember saying “haha, yeah, not for us!”. Funny how much things change in 3 short years πŸ™‚

This boy was so excited to see Santa

Santa pictures! Some of my favorites

Love this tree ❀

Bedtime craziness… poor Lincoln

Sorry little guy!

We had a great Thanksgiving and have so much to be thankful for. This is our favorite time of year and we are soaking up all the holiday spirit we can πŸ™‚
