Here are some updates of the past little while that many of you have been asking for. :)

APRIL 18th: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY WONDERFUL HUSBAND! A Big whoppin 28!. He didn't like this birthday to much because he says he is getting too close to 30. We went out to dinner and a movie on friday, then on saturday, we I had planned a surprise BBQ with his friends at our house, but canceled it because the "weather report" said it was suppose to be windy and rainy. Lo and behold...perfect BBQ weather. Bill decided to go with his bro's and cousins hunting and fishing. His birthday didn't go as planned, so I'm glad he was able to go out and do that all day saturday. I am very lucky gal to have bill as my "man", and a father to our kids. Don't worry hon, I still think you've "got it" even though you're almost 30!. :) xoxox

One of the things he's been wanting were some cowboy boots

Coldstone Cake (yummy) at Grandma Kings House.

April 26th: Boy do I wish I had pictures for this next one!!!
I suppose you could use the word "Redneck", but it was for a good cause. are you ready for this??????

We did participate in this very redneck contest. Whoever brings in the biggest rockchuck, wins a rifle. 1st-3rd place all win a rifle and if you place further down, you're entered in for a raffle to win the rifle. Bill invited me to participate in this all day adventure. We started the day off with Bill and I in his truck with a walkie talkie talking to Sherm and Kyle in Sherms truck. Well somehow, I ended up driving the truck and Bill was in the passenger side with his gun ready to go....(you can only get away with this is Idaho). It was quite interesting. He does have his concealed weapons permit and we were out in the country in fields, so no worrying. Later that day, I overheard them talking about what they were doing and they came up with a name for the mission we were on....
MISSION : DESERT CHUBBYCHUCK. (I can just hear Rich's Redneck jokes rollin right off his tongue about now....or "you know you live in Idaho" saying....)

Here's some fun pictures just cuz

Madisen would NOT let me get her dressed for the day...She wanted to wear her diaper, her pink shoes, her jacket and my hair scarf...and she would cry and scream whenever I'd try to take the picture...silly girl.

Riley really wanted to make faces with mom so we could put them on here....and.....
I had to put my hair extentions on him....he has such a nice looking face he can really pull it off! ;) (Bill was not happy bout that.)

They enjoy this equally...Riley loves to snuggle Lily , and as you can see, Lily loves it too.

I know this is very long....but YOU wanted the update... :)

Takes me back about 20 year or so to when some other little girl had her own idea of what she wanted to wear and was quite set in her ways too.. hmmmm I wonder who that was :) I loved the pics thanks for updating it makes us able to share in the fun times. Happy Birthday Bill .. We love you guys

It is nice to see that all is well. I was begining to think that you disapeared from cyberspace:) Happy Birthday Bill!

Rich & Andrea said...

Well Dang...did he win da rifle or was der a bigger redneck in the county contest? I bet if he'd wern his new sh*# kickers he mighta gotta gun! I hope he remembered to roll down his window before he shot the chubbychuck. Good job Jenni, it's not easy driving while sitting in the middle. Don't all Idaho women sit in the middle next to their man? Idahoans...You need to a passport to go there!

Your blog didn't seem long at all. I loved the rock chuck story. Yes, did he win or not? You would have said so if he'd won, right? Madison looks so cute. We have that battle here too, on a regular basis. Sometimes it's Matt in the pink shoes and tu-tu. (sp?);)
