Our Super Duper Mini Chefs

This morning we ventured to our mall to join the hundreds of people for The Kidgits Club activity Super Duper Mini Chefs. It started at 11:00 am and went until 1:00pm. We were there the entire two hours. The kids really enjoyed it. We had to wait in line a while since we were running late as usual and didn't get in line until 11am. Once we got into the activity area it wasn't as bad. There was eight different activity stations, Fruit Smoothies, Build a Snack, Nugget Dips, Cookie Making, Apron/Potholder Craft,Measuring Activity, Pizza Roll Ups, and Cereal Necklace. Plus the kids got an apron and chef hat to wear while doing the activities and a little gift bag that was a baking kit. The baking kit came with an actual 6 cup muffin pan. a whisk, a bowl, a couple cookie cutters and measuring spoons. They both can't wait to use them in our kitchen to help Mommy.

Jacob's T-ball practice was cancelled again because of the rain. Hopefully the weather will hold up this as he is supposed to have practice again on Thursday. Then on Saturday his team has pictures. We don't have too much other than that going on. We are going to try and get together with some friends this week for the kids to play. Again counting on the weather holding up for us.

Now for some pictures of my little chefs.......

Fun Times!

Pictures are Finally Here.....

Here it is finally! I am sorry it took me so long. It was kind of hard to narrow the 2000 pictures down. I managed to narrow them down to 200 or so. Just a warning the video is pretty long like 11 minutes. As you will see we meet lots and lots of characters. This was one of the kids favorite things to do, anytime we saw a character we had to stop. Another one of the kids favorites on our trip was the penny/coin presses. We also had to stop at lots of those. As you will also see Jacob did a very good job smiling in the pictures as long as he was with Princesses. It was kind of funny. You will also see that it didn't rain the whole time we were there but a good part of it. Just so you know we are not only happy when it rains, it's just the song I picked out it kind of seemed fitting. All in all we had a really good time, and the kids keep asking when we get to go back. Hope you enjoy the video.

Get Ready!

Believe it or not I am actually in the process of trying to put some of the pictures from our WDW trip together to share with you all. I know it's only almost a month after our trip but as most of you know it's been a very busy month for us. Until the pictures are here, how about some updates.....

My Jenna....

As you know she is officially three. We had her three year check up this past Monday and she is growing quite well. Are you ready for this? My little peanut is FINALLY on the chart for her weight. I could hardly believe it myself. Her entire life she has been in the -3% for her weight. On Monday June 8th she officially hit the positive side of the scale. She weighs 25.9lbs and is in the 3%. WooHoo! I couldn't be happier. She gained 4 lbs from last year. She is now a tall 35 inches. She has grown quite a bit since last year almost as much as she's gained. She grew about 3 and 1/2 inches. Much more than I thought. She had her vision test and she passed with flying colors. I had questioned the vision test because I didn't remember Jacob having to do it. The nurse said they always try but most three year olds cannot do the test. That made me very happy that Jenna did it and passed. For now she does not have my horrible vision. Thank goodness. She continues to keep me on my toes, and amazes me on a daily basis.

My Jacob....

He is officially a Kindergartner. We had his last day of school/therapy on Thursday. It was an emotional day for me. Not only does it mean he is going to Kindergarten but we also had to say goodbye to a very special lady. Mrs Clay his speech therapist, he has been seeing her since just before he turned three. For the past two and a half years we have seen her at least once a week. She has made a tremendous impact on our Jacob. Because of her Jacob's speech has made leaps and bounds. I cannot even tell you how much he has progressed. Most of you know where we were at when we started and how much Jacob has changed. Like I said it was a hard day for Mommy. Not so much for Jacob. We promised we would stop by and see her at her new school, once we get settled in at his new school. Not much else going on with my Jacob. He is starting T-Ball soon. We were supposed to have his first practice on Thursday but they cancelled it because of the weather, we are now rescheduled for Tuesday. Jacob is really excited about getting to play Baseball, like his cousin John.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Summer so far. Can't wait for the rain to go away so we can have some fun with kids outside. It seems that the rain may have followed us home from Florida, sorry. I am almost half way done uploading our pictures to One True Media. Next up pictures.......

Our Jenna....

Seriously where in the world does time go? My BABY has went from.....

June 2006

To this......

May 2009

Just look at that little mischievous look on her face. I cannot believe that three years has gone by. It seems like not that long ago I was pregnant with her. She is such a character. She constantly has Joe and I on our toes. She's full of energy and she is definitely her Mommy's girl. Or at least I am told, when it comes to her personality. She's very opinionated and independent. Most of the time she wants to do what she wants to do and in her own way. She will always let you know if you are doing something different than the way she wants it. Like the whole potty thing. Some days it's all on her own and others it's Mommy you have to watch me, too cute. There's also her little soft girlie side. Yesterday she made it so hard for me to leave for work. She was pleading with me to stay home. "Mommy please don't go to work. Just stay Mommy." It broke my heart. She is also always wanting in on what her brother is doing. When they are getting along they are the cutest things in the world. Just too cute to describe, the way they are so kind to each other. I could go on and on about her and how much she has grown into to her own little person but I won't. Three people, my baby is three.


We love you baby girl. You make our lives so complete.

With lots and lots of love,

Mommy,Daddy and Jacob
