Mr. Beau and his mom delivered the 3rd day of Christmas. A cute little poem about still having to do the chores even though it is Christmas time and to find "joy" in doing them.

The 2nd day of Christmas, a loved and new favorite of the Jenkins family *Nutella*

Building Christmas trees with decorations and a star of top out of star shaped sugar cookies. So much fun with snow on the ground and Christmas music playing in the background. I sure had a great time and I think the little ones did too.Miss Hailey and Miss Emma just hanging out

This month we celebrated our 31st anniversary. It can't possibly be that long ago that I was a teenager and still living at home with my parents, yet on the other hand, being a teenager and living at home with my parents seems like a different book I read or a movie a saw. Once upon a time Jay had very thick, curly, black hair and I weighed 117 lbs. Once again, that must have been a different movie. Things have certainly changed. Especially how much more I love Jay. He is my best friend.

Our Pizza, Play, Pumpkin, Picnic in the Perry Park Party
Fall is my most favorite time of year. I love to be outside, I love all my canning jars full, I love the leaves to change colors, I love the cooler days and nights, I love how fall ushers in the Holidays

Just another fun day. We went up to the North Ogden Divide trail head and hiked for a bit, stopped and had some lunch. I think Abigail thought we had gone 25 miles but really it was only a bit down hill and a bit longer uphill. The weather was beautiful and the leaves are showing their red. The kids were really, really dirty but I think everyone enjoyed the hike

What can I say, it has been the by far the busiest summer ever for me. I am slow anyway with the blogging and now it has been non exisistent for over 3 months. Once again the most important things in my life is family and we love love love being grandpa and grandma more than anything!!! With a great addition of two more grandaughters. Hopefully I will get caught up on some of our summers activities. The pictures here are just one of our great Sunday afternoons.

My sweet and wonderful family made turning 50 great. I cannot begin to thank them for a HUGE surprise. The party was so fun. They completely took me off guard. Having Luke and Lisa there was shocking and Jed almost was there, but I had a great phone call from him earlier in the day. We had dinner, balloons, cake, gifts, husband, kids and grandkids. It doesn't get any better than this. Thanks so much and I love all of you so much. I was busy being at my party that I didn't get any phote, but the girls all did. You are great!!! Turning 50 was so easy.

I don't know how this tradition got started but it did and I love it. Every Friday is lunch with my mom and my sister Diane and my other sister Marilyn when she can join us from Idaho. Somehow they pulled off a surprise lunch for my birthday when they did not even know that I could go to lunch because I had Meg and Ben's kids while Meg was in the hospital with Hailey. They took me to Maddox and had balloons and a cake. Jay was able to join us. I have to say that I don't feel like 50. I love the black flowers in this cake, it really was a beautiful cake.

Could not have asked for a greater birthday present. This newest little grandbaby was not supposed to come for two more weeks. What a thrill it is to have her here a bit early, just in time to start celebrating a 50th birthday for me, another post to follow on the birthday parties. My photography of sweet Hailey leaves a lot to be desired because I am so busy watching her. I did not get any good pictures at the hospital but I will be sure to as the days go by and she grows like a weed.

Grandpa Jay with the three babies, but really they aren't babies anymore and they really are not going to be the babies at all in a couple of months when we get two more little ones.
Carly and Dallin ( a third cousin to Carly and who Meg was babysitting). I had just put them down for a nap. Dallin on the bed and Carly in the pack and play. She can now climb out of the pack and play and decided to fall asleep stuck in between the bed and the wall.

The first picnic of the season at my house. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!

A couple of nerdy dorks heading out to the Young Adult Activity

Saturday before Easter was such a fun day. We had an Easter egg hunt at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We had hotdogs and potato salad (it was too cold to cook our hotdogs outside, so we ate indoors) and then went out to find Easter eggs. The kids were all so much fun and they had a great time. We missed Jed, Luke, Lisa and Ben. I will always look forward to time spent all together.
