Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

26 May

What a long week (lots of photos this week too)! Chris and I were busy busy trying to get the outdoor kitchen finished for the holiday weekend.

I Chris started tiling on Monday. Messy!

I joined in on the action Tuesday. Took 4 nights to get the beast done (remember we have 2 kids to feed, bathe, and get ready for bed)!

Love lilies!!

I hadn’t gone through our wedding book for a while and happened to glance through it the other day. Although this makes me sad it also brought a smile to my face πŸ™‚

This big boy had his 2 month check-up this week. More to come on that visit on his 2 month post. Let’ just say, he is growing quickly!

Kyler wanted to be apart of Hudson’s 8 week photos

Love this smiley face πŸ™‚

Just love him!

For Easter, Kyler got a new pool towel. I really wanted to get Hudson one as well but the one I wanted was sold out. Well PBK got them back in and I love it! It’s the Octopus Mini towel and it’s perfect!

Kyler’s school pictures!

Hudson and I hit up BJ’s for some party supplies. Poor guy got buried!

We hung the lights at 10:30pm and stocked the fridge for the next day! Not like cutting it close πŸ™‚

We threw our first pool party this Memorial Day Weekend! It was 95 degrees out so it was a great day to be in the pool. My best girlfriends and their families came over and it was perfect! It was fun to think about where we were 10 years ago (lounging around a college apartment pool) to where we are now, laying around with our husbands and kiddos. Much different but still a blast! I am so fortunate to have such a close group of friends. We don’t get to spend as much time together anymore now that we have our own lives to live so I am so happy they were able to make it out!

Fun with Poppa

I made Peach Sangria!!

I used the recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction but made some tweaks to it to make it a peach sangria instead. She calls for OJ but I opted for Peach Nectar. I think I bought the wrong Champagne (made it a bit too dry) so I ended up adding some sugar and peach schnapps to sweeten it up. It was yummy! Perfect for a HOT day!

Firing up the grill for the first time!!

Can’t forget about the drinks!

Our spread

Kyler and Greyson enjoying some snacks together

Besties ❀

We hit up our favorite breakfast place, Keke’s, Sunday morning. I love their apple cinnamon French Toast! Yum πŸ™‚

Kyler enjoyed some pancakes and fruit

Daddy and Hudson enjoyed their pancake as well πŸ˜‰

Helping Chris carry Hudson to the car ❀

My precious family ❀

We hit up Epcot later that day. Kyler rockedΒ the ole Red, White and Blue!

This little guy rode around in style too πŸ™‚

Checking out Nemo

This Memorial Day we had the Gilbertson’s over for some steaks and corn on the cob. We are loving our new grill!

My Cutie on Duty!!

My fishy

I can’t wait to put the finishing touches on the kitchen and share it with you!!! Here is a sneak peak πŸ™‚

I hope everyone had a great and safe Memorial Day Weekend!!!! Thank you to all of you that have served and those of you that continue to serve. USA all the way baby!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

11 May

Oh how different this maternity leave is from my last one. Folding Kyler’s clothes while Hudson hangs out.

and of course, tackling this disaster courtesy of Kyler herself

Kyler is a stuffed animal hoarder. The more the better. Here are just a collection of “friends” she sleeps with.

She also started swimming lessons again this past week. She did them last Fall and was great when we finished, however, she was terrified of the pool again.

I love coffee. I also love coffee mugs. I picked up this Rapunzel mug at Disney last week. I figured why not use it while Kyler watched Tangled (for the 120058th time).

Hudson has been wearing 6 months clothes lately (can I please remind you that he is 6 WEEKS old!)

Wakey wakey!

She loves to love on her brother… he on the other hand isn’t so sure about it πŸ™‚

Hudson loves to sit up and look around. So alert!

Kyler had a friend come over on Friday. Hannah and Kyler are 3 days apart and her mom and I have been saying we need to get them together for about, oh 2 years πŸ™‚ Finally made it happen!

Caught her reading my Baby 411 book. Wonder if she picked up any good pointers?

We did LOTS of swimming this weekend.

Funny how in the beginning of the week she went from a scared girl to a little fish! Thank you Ms. Heidi!

All of her friends lined up and watched

So much fun!

Kenley stopped by to say hi but decided she wanted to swim too πŸ™‚

We had dinner over at the Gilbertson’s. Crosby and Hudson hung out πŸ™‚

Kiddo shot!

For Mother’s Day, I am usually with my momma too but she is taking a much deserved vacation right now so we just stayed home and played in the pool.

My sweet baby boy ❀

and my crazy goofy little girl!

Yelling at me to “Get in the water, Mommy!”

Then she steals my glasses. Sneaky girl. (side note: look at that belly full of air!)

Hudson just hangs out and watches

These two are my whole world and make being a mommy the BEST thing that can happen to someone.

Happy Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mommies out there!!

8 Dec

Kyler loves her big girl bed!!

Also, there is a sneak peek of new new furniture πŸ™‚

I found this goof ball just hanging out the other day. She is too much!

My mom “made” Chris take home my old lego set the other day. He and Kyler had a good time sorting through all of the pieces!

Meet Dolf, our new Christmas Elf! Yes, Dolf. Kyler named him herself. No clue where it came from but it stuck πŸ™‚

We had a nice unexpected visitor on Thursday night. Thanks to the cold front that hit most of the ole USA, Grandpa’s flight get rerouted through Orlando. That meant he had a few hours to hang out in Orlando (which turned into a stay overnight!)

Kyler was SOOOO excited to see Grandpa or “PeePaw” as she kept calling him (never has called him that before but hey, she is trying something new). She was so sad when he had to leave the next day.

Her new “baby” is her dancing Christmas tree. We bought it last year and she loved it but she has really taken it to a new level. She hugs, kisses, talks, and of course sings with it.

Or did I mention that this girl has some serious moves???

We headed out to Downtown Disney this weekend for some shopping and family time. Kyler had a good time at the Lego shop.

Grandma bought her a new purse. DIVA.

Winnie the Pooh and the gang.

She loves the carousel

Being that it’s Florida… it was 86 degrees out this weekend. It seemed much hotter to best honest with you. The pool was still too cold for my taste so we decided to get the hot tub fired up (you know, to a nice warm 90 degrees) but we had a slight mishap (all good now). It didn’t seem to bother Kyler though since she just splashed away in the beach area.

Tonight was the perfect night for smores after shopping with my momma today πŸ™‚

Yummy!!

We had a great week and are really getting into the Christmas spirit!!! Only 17 days left!!!

Happy Birthday to my brother Josh and my mom this week!!!! We love you!!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

6 Oct

My mom watches Kyler 2 days a week and Kyler loves going over to Grandma and Poppa’s. Sometimes my mom takes Kyler out shopping…. one spoiled but trendy little girl!

She came home from school with this cute little hairdo πŸ™‚

Goofy girl!

We have one week left of swimming lessons. Kyler has the clothes test this week! She will get put into the pool fully clothed and have to make her way to the ledge. Daddy and Kyler practiced swimming this week, she is doing so well!

I had a long night of work on Saturday night. We had a HBO Live Boxing Event in the building. Pretty cool event!

Today we went to the toy store (found a $25 gift card, score!) and out to lunch. Poor thing couldn’t even make it home.

After our nap (yeah… I napped too), we headed to our weekly trip to Publix. Kyler helped put things on the belt.

Tonight, I made a little Polish feast complete with my Grandma’s Fried Cabbage and Noodles πŸ™‚ She used to make her own dumplings that were amazing but I didn’t really have time for that πŸ™‚ Egg noodles work pretty well!

Finished product! Nothing really healthy here.

We topped off our night with a family movie night. I have been waiting for the Little Mermaid to come out of the vault and it finally has! It is my favorite Disney movie and Kyler was really into it too!

I am still exhausted every night so I pretty much hit the bed early. Work is really picking up and our pre-season starts this week! Pray for me! Β Have a great week!!
