Washing the car

Last weekend Jim decided to wash my car. He does this just about every weekend and usually Jenna helps. However, THIS time...Jenna decided to heck with washing MY car...she was gonna wash her OWN car instead.





TOO CUTE!

Happy Birthday BOPPA!!

So this post is a little late but...better late than never right?

We celebrated Boppa's 90th birthday last Friday (9/11) at my parents house. A fun time was had by all! The next night we had a "Come Meet Mackenzie party". Here are some random shots from the festivities.

Jenna and cousin Eric swimming in the spa...

The food....

Aunt Kathy giving Ryan a drink...

The kids (Jenna, Madison and Eric) enjoying some cupcakes...


The whole crew (Mom's side)...that's Boppa (the birthday boy) in the middle.

We tried to get a good picture of all 5 of the "great grandkids" together. From left to right we have Mackenzie, Madison, Eric, Ryan and Jenna....

Ryan wasn't too sure about the situation...or Eric trying to "hold" him....

...yeah, he wasn't having it.....

...nope...not having. it. at. all....


Well...that one wasn't too bad I guess. At least Ryan's not screaming!!

Later that night the girls (and Scott) watched Madison's dance recital video....

and Jenna got to hold her newest cousin....

which made her very happy...

Poppy got to hold her too. Which made him very happy as well!

Bleh!

Funny story....

So we are driving in the car last night.....on our way to the store. Everyone is chatting (Jenna) and babbling (Ryan) along and all of a sudden I hear the sound that EVERY mom knows. You know that silent gurgle/burp sound? I spin around in my seat (Jim was driving) and see Jenna sitting there, with a stunned look on her face, COVERED in slime. All of a sudden, the shock wears off and she's screaming and crying and saying something that no one can understand. I grab some napkins and start wiping her off and ask her if she threw up. She says "No, it was Ryan!" Yep, Ryan had projectile vomited all. over. her.

I look at him and he's just sitting there smiling, clean as a whistle. That was some good distance he got with that! But now I'm worried that he's sick. He had seemed fine at home before we left hadn't he? He had polished off a whole bottle (now emptied on his sister of course) with no problem. What was the deal?

So we go in the store. Jenna's still a little shook up and wet...so she and I go to the bathroom to wash her face. We do our shopping and head back out to the car and, as we are putting the kids in their seats...I say to Jim, "I just don't understand WHY Ryan threw up??!!" and that's when Jenna just happens to mention that she was sticking her fingers in his mouth when it "...just ....happened!"

Jim and I got a good laugh out of that one. We told her not to do that again (Although I think she learned her lesson the hard way on this one) and we headed home.

Poor kid! He's not even 9 months old yet and he's already bulemic!!

Bling Bling!!

Notice anything about this picture????

Anything at all??

Look closely.....
Yep.....Jenna got her ears pierced!!

On Saturday, we went to the mall to have pictures done of the FOUR cousins (Jenna, Madison, Ryan and Mackenzie). They turned out very cute! Afterwards we did a little shopping, had lunch and then took Miss Jenna to get her ears pierced! It was a bit of a surprise decision. Her cousin, Madison, got hers done a few months ago and Jenna has been asking to have hers done ever since. I thought Saturday was the perfect time since Madison could be there with her.

Jenna was extremely brave. She hopped right up into the chair and was all smiles from the beginning to the end. I couldn't believe it!

Here she is before.....she had just climbed into the chair...SO excited...

Getting her ear lobes cleaned....

The BIG moment...(thankfully they had two "piercers" on hand that day)


and then....my camera battery died. :( However... my mom and sister-in-law got a few shots with their camera phones and as soon as we figure out how to email them....I'll post those here too.

She LOVES her new earrings. She keeps looking at them in the mirror...touching them....talking about them...etc. It's so cute. They look great too!

Mr. Big Stuff


Guess who learned to pull himself up?

I put Ryan in his crib to play yesterday so I could get a few things done. I could hear him on the monitor happily banging on his toys. A few minutes later I walked by his room, glanced in, and saw this....

He sure was pleased with himself.


I'm SO glad I happened to be holding my camera!!! I even managed to get a quick video of him.....
