Daddy's Home!

Al finished his WLC course on Thursday.  We went to the graduation ceremony and then got to take him home.  As I was remise about posting our goings on while Al was at his boy scout camp, I have included an overview here.

Jen, John and Miss Kennedi came to the ceremony. 

Melissa, Savannah, and Ashton were there to pick up their missing piece too.  We spent a lot of time together while the guys were gone.

Jensen and K out for a walk.


Look how this cute little girl is growing up!

Al took Jence outside when we got home to play with the sidewalk chalk.

So, going back a month.  The weather was finally almost nice enough to go play outside.  These balls belong to the boy upstairs and he leaves them in the yard- so every time we pass by we have a "BALL!?" panic attack.

Checkin' out the garden.

Jensen, Holly Plotts and I drove down to the Black Forest to get a cuckoo clock.  It was a three our drive each way with the monster in the back seat.  He kept pointing to Holly and saying "this, this!" We never could figure out what he was talking about.
But I have a really cool clock to show for it.  
This is the giant (working) cuckoo clock outside the store we went to. (Jence wasn't happy...)

Holly and Jence.  Holly has some more pics... I might get them up someday...

One night we popped some popcorn in daddy's new Whirley-Pop, (I'm sure Alex didn't mind us opening his present...;) ) got in our jammies and watched Aladdin.  Good times.

Mom and Jence in a little self photographed session....

(This is my favorite-- look at his little hand under my chin...)



A new garage has been discovered...

A traditional Jensen breakfast.  I hear him calling to get up in the morning, I walk in and say "Hello!"  and he says, "Nana!?" or "Bed!?" 
Yeah, love you too, kid...

News Flash: couch cushions are mobile!

I told Jensen it was time to change his diaper- then turned around to find him "missing"...

Pay no attention to the boy behind the camp chair...

I have so many comments about this blog I don't think I will remember them all! First, have you seen my husband in the picture with all of us?? He looks HUGE! Tall huge, but still, huge. I love the pictures of Jensen and Kennedi walking around...they are so hilarious together. I love his little hand under your chin kissing you. I cried laughing at the boy behind the camp chair. Oh, and I have a video of the massive Cuckcoo Clock in action if you want it but it has my family in it after the long haul! Yay for cuckcoo clocks!! I am interested to see what Jess has to say about all this because she usually has lots of good comments...

haha, dangit jennifer! when i went to make a comment i saw that there was already 1 comment in the box, and i KNEW it was going to be you stealing my comments! first sara stole my "look at the little hand under my chin" comment, cause i said it out loud and then read her caption, then you repeated it. but my comment still stands "aww, look at the little hand under her chin!" next. that picture with john, holy cow! first thing i saw was him..ive always known he was tall but geez, that picture sure shows his relation to an oak tree. ugh, jen. kennedi. is. so. CUTE! hehe, yay for alex's new whirley pop! and the picture with the bread and nana is now my desktop picture. how hilarious is that pose? and finally, yes. the pictures of the camp chair. oh i almost wet my pants with the first one. mostly because of the picture mom took with me standing behind the big family gingerbread house. its the exact same picture with the little chunky feet sticking out the bottom except im behind a giant gingerbread house, eating the candy off the backside. oh i was so sneaky.

Ooahkay!! Everytime I try to post something here I've forgotten my p-word and I've written reams of info that they won't post "anonymously." So I've already beat allay'all to the cool comments--they're just not posted!! I crack up over the new "garage" pic b/c it's still so fresh in my mind how children take over a house--one shelf, one wall, one room at a time. Jensen is getting a good start. I'm so grateful that I've been to Germany so I know what the "garage" really is and I know the friends that are so important. The study of Jensen at Nashd's hse, where the hairy dude is in the left foreground and Jence has that focused "I'm not sure about this" look on his face is a classic. You think you enjoy these pics now--they'll be even greater treasures in the years to come, for all of us. Thanks for taking the time and making the effort that lets us all take part. The pic of Jess behind the gingerbread house where all you could see were her little chunky legs--well, her diaper probably needed changing, too. Kennedi and Jence forever!!
