Lions and Tigers and Bugs! Oh My!

Yes, the title may be corny but if you know me well enough then you know that bugs aren't my thing. I cried in front of my in-laws once because Ken had put on old locust shell on my shoulder...yeah, its that bad. So bad that I would risk destroying one of my lenses to get away from a hairy caterpillar. It's a sad world I live in...

Look closely on my baby's little toe on his left foot, there it is! The hairy caterpillar! Oh, my gosh, you all know I was freaking out, not because it was on his foot I didn't even realize that until after I put these on the computer, but shortly after this picture was taken, Landon noticed it and picked it up, I thought it was a twig at first then I walked a bit closer and screamed! "Landon, put that yucky bug down! Drop it, drop it!" <-- you can imagine how this went. :) Landon was just laughing and laughing, he thought that little bug was cute, he just so happened to be wearing a bug outfit, go figure! Anyway, this momma wasn't about to touch that bug, so I extended my zoom lens and smacked it out of Landon's hand, pulled my baby off of that stump by his armpit, and ran into the car. Someone in Forest Hills has it on video, they could win on AFV if they sent it in. So, there it is, me and my stupidity, I hope it was worth reading :)

Terrie Perez, a photographer and good friend of mine invited me to tag along and take pics at a wedding with her last week. This was good experience for me, watching how she dealt with the clients and getting used to using an on camera flash.

I am really glad that I was able to go with her, this will make for no jitters in June for my next wedding...hopefully no jitters :)

Here's Terrie's girls, are they too cute or what? So sweet and respectful.

A little bit of everything...

Well we have been quite busy here at the Jenkins'. No, unlike popular belief I don't have pics of everything we do, but I do however have a lot of pics. Too many to blog so, grab yourself a warm cup of coffee or tall glass of ice tea, put some KLOVE on, turn off the phone, sit down and enjoy. Just as a little warning, those of you with dial up this is not the slide show for contains almost 400 pictures, I'm sure you understand :)

A little bit of everything

Something New...

Wow! 11 comments, I do believe that's a record. Well, I won't mention my friends name, you can probably figure it out by the comments, but I will do another one with a solid background at a later time. I wasn't too crazy about this idea either, that is for the outdoor pics, who knows maybe someone will say, "Hey, where did that example go, I was crazy about it, I'll take 10 copies please"....or maybe not :0)

The Merrill Family

Alli's Party!


Well it finally happened...Alli had her party and isn't it such a relief once its's all over with? I had to change the date because of a wedding and I was afraid I didn't give people enough notice, not only that but I had a lot to get started in less than a weeks time. So I'm cleaning at about 9:00 pm Friday night in anticipation for the party at 11:00 am the next day...AnnMarie stops by to pick something up and there I am stressed out and tired trying to figure out just how I'm going to get it all done. You guys, the girl cleaned Landon's room, baked cupcakes, and then sat down and started sewing. Boy was I so so so greatful! THANK YOU ANNMARIE!!

I feel for those of you that don't have family close by that can help you with these party things, because when I woke up Saturday morning, I took it so slow, just made sure everything was in it's place and I didn't stress or worry about anything, it was perfect!

This is the girl on birthday party morning, all excited, asking every thirty minutes if people were on their way.

They made their own pizzas each with their own style, some with just a few drops of sauce, some with pepporoni piled high, some with a circle of pepporionis and some that didn't even want to make their pizzas :0)

They then decorated their cupcakes however they wanted. The party really did flow very smoothly and quick, it was maybe one and a half hours long, it was great! Some factors that made it the success that it was, was the amount of kids invited, any more than this would have gotten a bit crazy, umm... what else, oh, the fact that family wasn't there, I will say it was very sad not having our family there to celebrate, its one of the things that I love, my entire family got together for everyones birthdays from kids to adults at my grandmas house and I loved it. But its so hectic having so many people there, and not everyone gets to spend time with the birthday kid as they would like, so this was perfect!

Thank you for celebrating with us and also, thank you for all of the help any way it came, sewing, picture taking, kid coraling, and cleaning especially <--you gotta love that! :0)
