Our girls birthdays!

I wish I would have had video of Preslie eating her cupcake. She shoved the entire cupcake in her mouth and then had all this frosting on her hand and she was so upset because she couldn't figure out how to get it off. It was pretty comical!














Preslie is 1! She wasn't real sure what to do with the cupcake with the candle in it.













Raygan wanted to blow out candles for breakfast on her birthday so I came up with this genius idea.....bananas on top of cheerios with candles stuck in the bananas! She loved it!














Raygan and her girlfriends at the Disney on Ice show that we took them to for her birthday party! It was a pretty cool show!














Mom won't waste .50 cents on these dumb rides but Daddy sure will!!













Happy 6th Birthday Raygan! We let her choose where to go for dinner and she chose Azteca because you get to wear this cool hat and you get a cherry on top of your dessert!

My kids are all turning one year older!!!

Well, Preslie will turn 1 in 10 days :( and Raygan will be turning 6 in less than a month and Chace turned 9 about a month ago! I've realized that Chace's time with us in now half way over and it makes me want to cry! The time has gone by so fast and it seems to keep going faster and faster! I want them to stop growing up dangit!!!

My little brothers finally a dad! Crazy!!

Here is my new little nephew, Evan Jensen! Is he not the cutest thing you've ever seen? I'm looking forward to seeing him for the first time in a few weeks! Way to go Jake and Jimie, he's perfect!

A little peek of our summer!

Wow, I've forgotten how to even post it's been so long! Here are a few pictures of our summer of 09'!

My mom with 5 of her 10 grandkids at the bowling alley!















Chace would kill me if he knew I was posting this picture that him and some of the neighbor kids posed for!














Our trip to the Washington Coast with Grandpa Stan and Grandma Shirley, I thought this picture was adorable with Grandma and Raygan looking for seashells!














Our annual trip to Silverwood! Raygan and I stuck with the "little kid" rides while Dad and Chace hit the "big kid" rides!














Our baby girl is now almost 11 months old! I can't even think about it or I get depressed! I've been having thoughts of baby #4 but don't anyone even mention that to Dave or there will be trouble at the Jenkins household!!














Here's our little Raygan at her first day of Kindergarten! She didn't even look back to tell me good-bye. Sometimes I wish I were one of those moms that had a kid that cries when you leave them for the first time. I'm glad she was ready and I'm going to miss having her around! I just love that girl to death!!!















Well, that's just a small preview of our summer! We had lots of fun with lots of good friends and family! It definantly will be a summer to remember!

Finally an update from the Jenkins!!!

Well, I'm finally going to update. Here are a few pictures of what we've been up to lately!



Our little Raygan lost her first tooth! She was so excited for the tooth fairy to come. Although I'm not too excited about the KNARLEY teeth coming in behind the one she lost.






Here's our little Preslie-Poo at 8 months old! Isn't she getting soooo big! :(








Here's Raygan's favorite new thing to do with her Dad! Surf's up baby!










Here's what Dave found Chace doing on Sunday morning while we were all getting ready for church. The look on Preslie's face is the best! "What in the heck are you doing brother???"








The latest snake in our yard before Chace got to it!!









The snake after Chace got to it! Luckily it wasn't a rattlesnake! That's the 3rd snake this year!

My little baby is sitting up now! Here's her video of her first time!

Our little baseball stud!!

Well, I was determined to get a video of Chace playing baseball! So it wasn't the best video because I was standing behind this really tall fence. We only have 2 baseball games left which is bittersweet because I love going and watching the games but Raygan, Preslie and I are sick of freezing our rears off at all the practices and games. It was a fun season and Chace has come so far since he started playing 3 years ago! Way to go Chacers!!!

My kiddos!

Here's my little t-ball player. She is wearing all Chace's hand-me-down baseball clothes. I don't think she'll be going pro but she sure is dang cute! It's about time Chace sits on the side lines and watches her for all the many hours she has been drug around to all Chace's events! I do have to admit that it is hard to go from watching Chace's games to going to watch 4 and 5 year olds play t-ball. It's hard to believe that Chace was just like those little 4 year olds not so long ago!




Ok, I realize I'm a little late with posting but I eventually get around to it. So here is our easter picture for the year. Yah, I know, it stinks but when you have to have 5 people dressed and ready to go to church at 8:45 am you take what you can get. Dad was the photographer here. Thanks honey, but next year hopefully I will be ready to go to church on time so I can take the pictures!



Pinewood Derby winner!!



Well, Chace took first place at our church's pinewood derby. He was so excited. Although I think his Dad was just as excited because we all know that it's really an activity for the boy's dad's. The morning of the derby, Dave woke up and put the finishing coat of paint on, applied the stickers and went to spray a final clear coat on but when he started spraying, out came a pretty coat of white paint. The clear coat bottle was mislabeled with a white label. Woops! I wasn't out in the garage but I'm sure there was some pretty naughty words being said.
In case anyone's wondering about Chace's socks, he just came from soccer and those are his chin guards. :)

My sis and Mandy from the Biggest Loser




Here's my awesome sister Jenny that participated in a marathon with Mandy from this seasons Biggest Loser. I know Mandy looks great but check out my sister. She has lost so much weight and gets up at the crack of dawn every morning to run and train for her marathon's. She did really awesome at this last marathon too! What an inspiration you are sis! Way to go! Could you pass on some of that motivation my way!

Our trip to Triple Play!!

Well, I can't say that we did anything really that exciting for Spring Break, but we did spend a day up in Hayden, Idaho at Triple Play, an indoor water park. The kids had a great time but the chlorine content inside that park was too much to bear for all of us by the end of the day! Here are a few pictures of the kids!

Here's Chace and Raygan getting soaked by this huge bucket of water that dumps over about every 10 minutes!


















Here's Raygan posing! And no, she's not peeing!






















Raygan loved this slide, she couldn't get enough of it!


















This slide just wasn't quite wild enough for Chacers!




















Our cutie-patooties!!!

Our weekend adventures....if you can call it that!!!

Here's Preslie sitting in her bumbo chair!


Well, we had a busy weekend this weekend, but when don't we? Saturday was Daddy Day at Raygan's preschool so her and Dad went on a date to school that morning. Then Chace had his first BMX race of the season and he took 1st place. He needs one more first place win and he can move up to the intermediate class which we're hoping is a little more competition for him. Dave of coarse had to race too, he has a little more competition in his class so it might be a while before he moves up to the next class. From there we headed to the shooting range with Grandpa and Grandma Jenkins. The boys shot the guns while the girls hung out in the car trying to stay warm. Chace got to shoot Grandpa's old 22 and thought that was great. We then went to Mongolian for dinner, did a little shopping at TJMaxx and headed home and went to bed. Now it's Sunday afternoon and I'm BORED to death. I'm not too fond of the 9am church because the day seems to DRAAAAGGGG on forever. Anyway, life is good at the Jenkins household. Chace has his last basketball game on Saturday and his first soccer game too. So he is currently playing soccer, basketball, signed up to start baseball, going to scouts and trying to race his motorcycle when he can fit it in! What the heck is wrong with me?? He loves all of them and it keeps him from sitting in front of the television and off of that dumb DS so I guess I won't complain. Raygan is in gymnastics and we signed her up to play t-ball for her first time (this should be very entertaining). Dave is still working out of town during the week and it looks like that is going to continue for an indefinite amount of time. I guess you have to go where the work is these days. Preslie is now 4 1/2 months old and never sleeps. Aren't 4 months old still suppose to sleep quite a bit? She sleeps good at night but pretty much never sleeps during the day! So not much gets done around here. Oh well, more time to play with her I guess. Anyway, just thought I would update everyone on what's up with the Jenkins these days.....we know how good at blogging I am so it might be a few more months before you hear from me! Oh, I will try and post a video of Chace's BMX race. It is kinda far away but you can see him once he comes closer to me!

Preslie Poo in her own bed

Well, Preslie has been sleeping in with Dave and I in her bassinett but the other night I wanted to work out and didn't want to wake her up so I put her to bed in her room. I missed her too much so she's back in with mom and dad! Oh, I wish I was that lady that just had octuplets. I just love my little girl and wish I had more! I don't remember loving the "baby" stage so much with my other kids. I think it is because when they get a little older they talk back and make life a little more difficult for mom. None of that with my little baby girl! I'll enjoy it while I can!

A little bit from the Jenkins 2008 Christmas!

Ok, here is Chace and his Christmas present that we gave him before going to Idaho so we didn't have to haul the thing around. He of coarse loved it!



Here are the kids at Grandpa Steve and Grandma Jonie's seeing what Santa brought for them! Needless to say, Raygan wasn't really excited about the Wii that Santa brought both of them, but Chace of coarse was ecstatic!


Ok, a little background for this here picture! We were staying at Dave's brother's in-laws cabin but they needed it for a New Year's party they were having so we had to move to the cabin across the lake. The lake is basically all that area in front of us on the snowmobile. It is supposedly frozen and the only way to get to the cabin. So Dave is pulling Preslie and I behind the snowmobile across the frozen lake. If we didn't die from falling into the frozen lake, I thought we would die from carbon monoxide poisoning from that snowmobile. Preslie wasn't bothered by it I guess because she fell asleep on the way! When all was said and done we survived the whole ordeal, although I wake up at night worrying about what could have happened if the temperature would have been just a bit warmer??????






Here's Preslie at 3 months old! Sitting up, yahhhh!!
