Check it out!!

I was the *PROUD* winner of a blog contest... here ... And as the winner I got a brand spankin new blog design!

Doesn't it look AWESOME?!? From the very beginning she wanted to know all about my interests, colors I like, things I don't like... Everything. She was VERY detailed. Which I probably wasn't the easiest to work with, cause I am sooo very easy to please no matter what. But I can HONESTLY say this blog is *ME* and I L.O.V.E. it. She is so talented.

She posted before and after on her blog... so check it out: here. And while you're there, check out the rest of it! She has a very fun blog! :) TK+TOTS

Thank you Kirsten!!!!!!!!

Coco buns becomes Cohen

Happy 3rd Birthday Cohen!

So the other day I was looking at pictures, trying to figure out which to blog next... then I realized I never blogged about Cohen's birthday!! :( I'm terrible! So here are A LOT of pictures from his special day!

Cohen had some of his friends come over in the afternoon, and we had quite the little water party! It was perfect for the kids, on that hot summer day.


My mom and sister, Allison helped me frost these the night before. I LOVE how they turned out, and so did Cohen! I found them in a cupcake book I have, about 3 months prior to his birthday... and I new I was going to do them ever since! They were perfect for the little animal lover!

That evening, we had Cohen's family birthday party. Uncle Nick, Darcy, Auntie Allie, Aunt Tracey, Grandma, and Grandpa were all there to help celebrate! It was a wonderful evening...

Molly had fun playing with the frosting of the cupcakes...

Proof of a successful birthday:

Cohen is such a sweet little boy, and sooo funny! He amazes me everyday with his knowledge of animals! He loves to read books, go to the park, go on walks to collect pine cones and rocks, have dance parties, and chase his sister around! :)

He loves his nursery class at church. And is the first one up to dance during singing time! He is so fun to be around, and I just love his excitement for life!

He just recently started calling himself 'Cohen', and not 'Coco' (Cohen was hard for him to say).

I just love this little boy of mine.

Princess Mollykins @ 15 months old

This little girl is a sass-a-frass!! She is ALL girl! Loves to snuggle with stuffed animals, loves to wear jewelry, brush her hair, 'talk' on the phone, put 'lipstick' on.... and she LOVES to dance!

here she is playing peek-a-boo... one of her favorite things.

She weighs in at 20 lbs (10%) and her length (taken with a measuring tape while wiggling around) is 29.5 inches ( 10%). Her height actually surprises me, since most of her jeans look like capri's on her, and are too big around the waist. Either way she is fetchin cute! And we love her to pieces. She is seriously soooo funny! She can say quite a few things now. She says oh-no, hi, duck, quack, moo (maaa) , 'ready' (reeeiii), mama, dada, and fish (shh). I think that's it.

We got an e-mail from her Uncle Taylor, and my mom had sent him a picture of the kids. Taylor said, "she doesn't look like Jen, she IS Jen!" :)
Have I mentioned lately how much she *loves* Cohen???? Oh my...

I love you baby moo moo

SUM·MER·TIME - noun - \sə-mər-ˌtīm\

Berries, Berries, Berries! Cohen & Molly LOVE berries. My dad brought home $120 worth of fresh picked raspberries, blueberries and blackberries from work one day. They covered the entire counter top! Molly had just woke up from her nap, and would NOT let me put her in her high chair for her snack. So I held her while she would take handfuls of these beautiful treats! After she took a few handfuls, she shared with me, and started feeding me the berries! So then I sent Cohen & Molly out side to further enjoy their summertime snack.

...boy am I going to miss summer...

from the mouth of babes...

Tonight, before dinner, we asked Cohen to say the prayer. Usually when he prays, I will say a sentence, and he will repeat the last word of that sentence. Well I said, "we're thankful for our blessings..." And he said, "candy".

Yes. We are very thankful for candy.

summer fun


Well I tried at add them one at a time, and i just don't have the patience for it ;)

We have been having some good times so far, playing in the sun! Most of these pictures of from our new favorite park! It's in Oregon City. It has a great big play structure, and a huge splash park! It's sooo fun! Not to mention the huge fields, volleyball net, baseball fields, basketball/tennis courts.... there is literally something for everyone! We love it.
When we don't make it away from our house, we hang out on the deck. The kids love playing in the water!

Cohen is very hesitant getting wet at first... but if I grab his hand and just run through the water...
he's good to go! :)    Molly had no issues... and loves chasing the water!

I hope you are enjoying this weather as much as we are!
