Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

7 Dec

We are already a week into December people. That. is. nuts.

At the gun range (eek) with some of my peeps!

This is only my 2nd time firing a gun.

They love each other ❤

Hudson is crawling now!!!!!

We headed down to Downtown Disney to have lunch with my parents and grandparents and to do a little shopping. Kyler had a good time eating lunch at T-Rex

Afterwards, she built her own dinosaur at Build-A-Dino

We got the Christmas lights up today. Hudson had fun watching.

Cutie girl

Helping Dad!

My babes

The girl is too much

And we have lights

Only 18 days left before Christmas! Are you ready????

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons: Thanksgiving Edition

30 Nov

Wow, What a busy busy but really awesome week/weekend!

Kyler was testing out the cars at the store…. I think she found a winner. Doesn’t Hudson look so content 🙂

We had a great Thanksgiving at my Aunt Bun’s house.

People say Kyler is my mini me but she reminds me so much of my mom. They even take pictures the same….

Happy Thanksgiving from our little turkey!

Kyler had a blast playing with her cousins

She loves Emma!

We hit the road bright and early Friday and headed out to Eustis to Santa’s Christmas Tree Forest. You can cut down your own Florida Christmas tree or they have Northern trees to buy as well. We already have a tree so we just went to have some fun and get in the Christmas spirit! It was really chilly out so that helped 🙂

Ran into these guys…. happy they survived Thanksgiving!

Sweet Hudson

The girl rode her first horse and she loved it 🙂

They have a small petting zoo which made this little girl happy.

The Christmas Tree Forest, Florida Style

Happy Holidays!

Me and my girl ❤

My world.

The big guy and Chris 🙂

She loved the horse so much she had to go back

This. Face.

That night, we busted out the decorations and got to work!

She did great hanging the ornaments on the tree this year!

It was a good branch

Putting the tree on the top ❤

We woke up and headed out to Magic Kingdom on Saturday. First time on the Jungle Cruise.

Kyler was NOT into having her photo taken. Beautiful day, great shot in front of the castle and this is what I got.

It’s like they were in on it together

Watch out!

Kyler is finally tall enough to go on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster!

This video is hilarious. I promise, she loved it and asked to go on it again as soon as it finished.

Here we come!

Close up

Loves the horsies

Not having it

Kyler is starting a dance class at school this week. Cutest damn ballerina if I ever saw one!

Kyler helped me out with some Pinterest Christmas crafts today!

So there ya have it. Our super busy Thanksgiving weekend! I had a blast hanging out with my family. I am so thankful for each and every one of them ❤ I hope you had a great and safe Thanksgiving!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

23 Nov

The week started with a trip to the doctor for the little guy. He has had a cold all week and it won’t go away!

Princess Belle Ariel Zarina

Ms. Kyler reading us a book before bed (she said she was the teacher)

The kiddos school pictures came in!

Hudson and I hit up the toy store to pick up some items and decided to swing by and look at the cars. Ya know, just in case Grandma and Poppa decide to get Kyler one for her birthday.

Love his little rolls!

Staying home and taking care of this sick cutie isn’t so bad 🙂

Saturday Game Day with Brittany! We were so close to a win against Miami. Tough loss for sure.

Enjoying some Keke’s before meeting Santa!

First time getting the Florida Waffle. Not too bad!

We decided to go visit Santa today since the next few weekends are going to be pretty hectic. Plus, I thought we would be able to beat the crowds, however, we got there before the mall opened and still waited a hour to meet Santa. When we left, the line as up to 4 hours! The kids did GREAT! Kyler cried the first year, was shy last year, but she was awesome. Hudson didn’t seem to mind either.

The Mall of Millenia really does Santa pictures right. I am fairly certain their Santa is the REAL Santa. They are so patient with the kids and are miracle workers!

Kyler Bug every year with Santa

Afterwards, we hit up Publix and Hudson rode in the car cart for the first time. So big.

For dinner, I made Shrimp Burritos with Queso inspired by my favorite Mexican place in town, Agave Azul. I loved their Burrito Acapulco and am proud to say it tasted pretty similar!

I am looking to a short work week and a great holiday weekend! We have big plans for Thanksgiving and then decorating for Christmas! LOVE LOVE LOVE this time of year!

16 Nov

I love these to-go coffee cups from Cheeky sold at Target. Made my Monday not AS bad 🙂

She looks so innocent here…. crazy child!

Testing out bikes one last time so we can tell Santa which one to get! As much as I love this bike, we are opting for a 14″ bike instead.

I was able to sneak out of work a bit early one day so we took advantage and took a ride around the block. I am not a fan of it being dark at 6pm.

My bestie Jenn is in town for the week! It was fun to get the kiddos together.

Not the clearest photo but it was a bit difficult with 2 active kids

Greyson!

As the day went on, Hudson started coming down with a cold. Poor guy had a tough time falling asleep but finally knocked out.

My mini and I out on the golf cart looking for alligators (as Kyler would say). Fish face selfie!

Relaxing with Dad…. you can tell he doesn’t feel well 😦

We stayed the night at my parents and went out for breakfast before heading back home.

Happy Sunday!

9 Nov

We made a few fires this weekend. Kyler loves them and loves smores and hot cocoa even more.

Work! I am on the M

Trying to capture pictures of this kid is becoming more and more difficult!

We did some shopping this weekend!

We met with my friend Alexis for lunch at the mall

For Kyler of course ❤

Oh how I love this swingset. Keeping the kiddos occupied.

So Chris and I joke that Chris always “gumped” the photo, aka ruined it by having his eyes closed and looks like Hudson is taking after him!

Baby yoga

SO SO close to crawling!

She is so sweet to him…….

So many applesauces to choose from

She is doing so great with her bike! Can’t wait to get her a big girl bike!

Beautiful Florida sunset

Another night of hot cocoa by the fire…. mini Michelle here! Well sub the cocoa for coffee 🙂

Even Hudson joined!

She. is. ridiculous.

Yum  ❤

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!

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!
