Happy Birthday Ryno!

Happy 6th Birthday Ryno! I just love this little guy. A few of my favorite things about Ryan is that he is such a kind-hearted little boy. He would do anything for his family and friends. I love the ears on this kid. Especially when he has a hat on they seem to magnigy! He is very full of life and has tons of energy but when he gets tired he will say come and sit down mom so I can lay on you! He is very funny. He picks up on anything really fast (sometimes this is good and sometimes not so good!) and he absolutely loves and looks up to his older brother Seth. We are taking him swimming tonight which is one of his favorite things to do, so I will attempt to take my camera and snap a few pictures of that.

Happy 6th Birthday Ryno...

I took Ryan some cupcakes to his Kindergarten class and I had to snap a few pics of him. He is sooooo excited that today is his Birthday. We are taking him swimming tonight at the pool and he can't wait. You got to love those ears! They are the cutest.

Looking sharp....

I decided since we don't have church until 1:00 I would take some pics of the kids. We went to Boise on Friday and came home last night. It was lots of fun. We met Larry's parents there because Larry's mom wanted to buy Seth a suit for his baptism. We spent pretty much all day on Saturday at the mall. I am not complaining at all. It was so much fun and we got lots of good deals on clothes for the kids. Anyway so I wanted to take a few pics of the new church clothes and the new suit.

Home Sweet Home

Here is some more pics from my past. I have been waiting to post these because this was my dream home that I thought I would live in for a long, long time and I loved this home so much! I can't tell you how much I miss it. But things happen and we all have trials that are out of our control. Anyway this was a custom built home with 12 foot ceilings in the kitchen and formal room that vaulted down. It was 1700 sf up and down. I am not bragging by any means I just miss it and it was a beautiful home. No offense to La Grande natives but you cannot find a house like that one for less than $300,000.00 around here. We bought this house brand new for $169,000.00! I have more pics of it I just can't find them right now. Anyway I am getting very home sick right now so got to go.

Happy Birthday Seth!

Today is Seth's Birthday. We decided to let him have his party at the bowling alley. Let me tell you 8 8year olds and two adults = lots of fun! The boys were very wild but they had a lot of fun. They got through ten frames in about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Then Seth opened presents and then had some cake. So the party was about 2 1/2 hours. I am very tired right now. It was a lot more work than I thought it would be. It was nice to have a party for him though he really had a lot of fun. As for yesterday I didn't get to post anything because I was very sick in bed all day. I must have had the 24 hour stomach flu because it was gone this morning. Anyway Larry surprised me and took me out to dinner on Wednesday night to beat the crowds on Valentines day. He gave me flowers and chocolates. He is very sweet when it comes to Valentine's day. I am glad we went out on Wednesday because I couldn't even get out of bed yesterday. It was not fun. At first I thought I got food poisoning but apparently not I don't know, I'm just glad I feel better today. Well that's life inside the Jensen's today.

Turning 8....

Seth will be turning 8 this friday! This is a special birthday because he will be baptized a member of the LDS church. He is always wondering why I don't have very many pictures of him on my blog so I said we will take your baptism pictures and I will put some on. This picture is the best one. He looks so cute and innocent but he is my challenge! I thought it turned out cute ( not as good as my good friend Ad would have done!) for an amateur photographer. Anyway he will be baptized on March 1, 08 at 6 p.m. He can't wait!

Yucky thumb....

Ryan was so upset when I told him that we needed to take the bandaid off and let the stitches air out that he literally was crying so bad. Larry took a picture of him after he calmed down a little bit. He didn't want his bandaid off because he didn't want to look at his thumb because it was too gross! What a funny little boy. He never surprises me anymore he just comes up with all this stuff, its crazy. I used to be like Ryan where did you come from? But now I just look at his dad and I know where he came from!

New look

I had to post a thanks to Melissa M. for changing my blog for me. I absolutely love it! You are very talented Melissa! As for today---Ryan's thumb is getting better. I will post a picture of it later. Today the kids had a two hour delay for school so I thought I would take a minute to blog. I can't believe how much snow we have. I will post a picture of that too later. So for now I must get back to work and the kids to school.

Stitches again....

Well we spent another 2 hours in the emergency room this morning. Yes it was Ryan again. This is the second time in less than a year for him. Larry's mom gave me a set of cutco knives for Christmas and gave the warning "Do not let your kids get near these knives because they are super sharp!" Well we warned them several times do not touch these knives because they will slice your fingers off. So I am cleaning closets out to take to the DI trailer when Ryan starts screaming I am bleeding!
So I run in the kitchen and there is massive amounts of blood falling to the floor. I am freaking out yelling at everyone--I call Larry and he calmly says I will meet you at the emergency room. So I race to get up there leaving Natalia and a crying Seth at home. We get up to the emergency room and have to wait about 45 minutes until they finally came and got him. Ryan is my tough one--he doesn't cry when they have to poke his thumb twice with a needle full of numbing medicine. He just flinched. If it had been Seth-he would have been yelling and screaming and trying to run out of there. They are very different kids. Anyway so the two pictures are in the emergency room with my phone and the third picture is here at home. He is doing fine now but what a fun and eventful day. I am tired now. Oh and we ask him what were you doing with the knive we told you never to touch?? He says I was trying to cut off my bouncy ball from the paddle it was stuck to????? I asked are you ever going to touch those knives again? He says no way.

Got Swimsuit?

I had to interupt my blast from the past and post the new swim line from modbe clothing. I think they are so adorable and to die for so I had to put them on here. For those of you who don't know I sell modbe on the side when I can. I love modbe clothing and almost always have a something on from their line. Anyway I am posting this on my lunch break so got to go!
