A Christmas Miracle






For those of you who didn't hear we had our little baby girl early, only being 35 weeks along Hallee Elizabeth Jensen was born Dec. 8, 2009 at 11:25 am in Boise, ID. Even with being early, and my doctor telling us she would be in the NICU,she is healthy and doing very well. She was able to keep her own body temp, eat well and breath without oxygen. Jessica is doing well and still recovering. Hallee weighed 6 lbs 3 oz and was 18.5" long. When we were about to return home Hallee had lost almost 10% of her body weight and they told us she might not come home with us. But she was able to sustain body weight and come home with mommy. Since then she has dropped down to 5 lbs 10 oz, but now being two weeks old is now 6 lbs 7oz. Thank goodness for mommy's milk! After being home for just a couple of days Jessica developed Masstitiss (sp) again....she gets this with every birth. She is still recovering.
Thank you for all of the phone calls, prayers and many other helpful services everyone has given. We are VERY blessed this year to have Hallee here and have her healthy! We know that Heavenly Father has been watching over us and protecting us through this pregnancy.

At Home Preschool Anyone??


I wanted to share a few websites that are great for begining preschoolers...or if you just need some ideas to keep your children busy! :)

Everything is free...there's tons of printables...chore lists bingo cards memory games, activity calendars and more....check them out!

It's finally ours!!!


Well for those of you who have needed an update on our house it is.
We Finally signed on our house this last friday!! Whooooo...After 7 months of waiting it's finally ours!!! We've been painting and going crazy trying to finally figure out what we want to do to it's so exciting!!!

What are we having??


So we went in today to find out what we're having...Kinsie from the very begining has said that it was her brother "Charlie" and ever since I have felt like it was a boy. They say that if your first two are of the same sex, then you have a 75% chance that your third will be the same.....


Its a good thing that we make beautiful girls because we'll be blessed with one more!!!

I have to say that Josh is feeling a little left out :)

So any suggestions on names??

6 years and counting


6 years ago Josh and I were married the the Logan Utah Temple. Who knew that in those 6 short years we'd have two beautiful girls and a baby on the way. WOW 6 years and three kids!!! Well for our anniversary we were able to spend 2 nights and 3 days camping up at Red Fish Lake. We took the kiddos and we had such a great time! Heavenly Father has sure blessed our family in so many ways. Even allowing me to feel good enough to go with Josh and the kids! Our family loves camping and I think that we'll make it an annual trip to go camping...maybe trying some place new every year.The pictures are mixed sorry for the confusion.One is of Kinsie trying out our new solar shower...good fun! Another we took a paddle boat and paddled around the lake for an hour...trying to catch little fish with Kinsie's net. The one of Josh and I kissing is at the exact time 6 years ago when we were married!!!!Then there's the AWESOME fire that I built BY MYSELF>>> way to go girls camp! And then a friendly chipmunk eating a nut out of Kinsie's handEnjoy![...]

Pregnancy update


I first have to admit that I HATE being pregnant...I love it when I can feel the baby move, that is such an experience that you just can't describe. BUT For me I get so sick that it's just 9 months of torture! :) When I was pregnant with Kinsie I was pretty sick, needing to go to the hospital to have iv's to stay Hydrated...then with Ella it was more a breeze than anything. This time around
I have pretty much been bed bound for the last 4 weeks. The last week 1/2 I've been at home hooked up to a constant IV to keep my hydrated and to give me meds through...I finally got the iv taken out last night and I'm so happy to not have it in me!!! Josh and I have pretty much decided that this will be our last baby, unless otherwise instructed by Heavenly Father. Thank goodness for my wonderful mother and mother in law who have been staying at our house to take care of the children. I don't know what we would do without them! Hopefully the weeks to come will be great and I can feel like a real person again! Wish us luck!

What can you see??


Can anyone find anything special???

Ramblings from Kinsie


Here are a few of our conversations from today...
Kinsie: Mommy, can we buy an arrow??
Mommy: What for Kinsie
Kinsie: So I can Shoot a bear!!!
Mom I don't like this know why??
Because it doesn't have stairs.
Here is Kinsie's version of The LADY BUG song....
Lazy butt lazy butt fly away home, your house is on fire and your childrens will be burned.
hahah pretty cute huh??

What our adorable girls are up to today!


I'm going to start writing down funny things that I want to remember that happen during my crazy day with the girls. I'll be posting them hopefully as often as I can so you can enjoy the funny stories as well. Here's what happened today:

Kinsie was sorting the laundry all by herself.....(She's doing chores around the house to help earn money to fix my dad's explore....Look at the previous post to find out what happened.)

Mommy: You're doing a great job Kinsie!

Kinsie: This is a smelly Job!

Then we were doing dishes...We loaded the dishwasher but had a bunch of dishes to wash by hand...I washed and Kinsie dried...

Kinsie: You're the best mom ever!!

humm...just for letting her do the dishes??? score for me!!

Kinsie swallowed a plastic pearl bead.....she comes out and said...guess what mom!!!! I swallowed a whole bead!! Isn't that great??

Then..she just got her hair cut..but apparently it wasn't the way she wanted...she decided to fix it herself...

yeah she cut her own hair...first time for that and hopefully the last!

She did come up with a good joke today

"Why did the tomato cross the busy road with all the cars??

"He wanted to be tomato sauce!!"

Then lastly..Josh has a bottle of AquaDesio (sp) my FAVORITE colongue(sp)...lets just say it's all gone now :( But Kinsie smells great!

Is it time for an update???

2009-03-26T21:58:19.266-07:00 do I have a reason for not posting in two months??? well no not really, but things have been mad crazy around here in that time. First of all we moved into a rental house only a couple of blocks away from the last....a three bed two bath, HUGE Kitchen dinning room, family room with fireplace..oh and did I mention a HUGE fensed backyard??? Oh yeah and theres a playhouse for the kiddos!! YEAH score!! And only 25$ more a month then the last Yippee!! So with josh working full time and going to school, me with young womens to plan...activities ect...two small kiddos and bizzars, I managed to pack the house by myself...and cleaned it with my awesome young women...and settled right in even hanging up pictures the next day! We absolutly LOVE this house... We signed a year lease and thought everthing was working out perfectly..... Well Four days after the move in we recieve a letter on our front door stating that the house is in foreclouser and will be auctioned off on June 1st....ummmm did I miss something???I thought we were safe for a year....Well guess not!! So we talked with the management company and the owener gave us all of our money back and told us for the inconvienence that we could be rent free until may 31st...OK that works...:) So since it's in forclosure....we're doing a short sale and we've put an offer on the house...Now we're just waiting to see what the bank thinks of our low offer and hopefully we'll know by the time we're supposed to be outta here!!!! Right now is the best time to buy with the 8 thousand Obama passed for first time home buyers...Next...Our new ward we love....there's a funny story to go with it. On our Seconed Sunday in the ward...we were giving callings....Did I mention I was 1st counselor in the the Young Womens in our last ward?? And that Josh taught the Valient 9 in Primary....Yeah Well I thought that I would have a good break from Young Womens....Not that I didn't love it...but I was super busy all the time....but NOPE!!! I guess Heavenly Father had other plans for me as now I'm the Secretary in the Young Womens..and Josh...he's teaching the same class....:) Oh and they also called me to be the camp director.. Are you kidding me??? How am I going to be able to do all of this?? WEll I guess I'll be able to or else I wouldn't have been given the callings...Wish me luck?? I know I'll need it!!Ella is now 11 months....holy cow it's gone by super fast this time...she's not crawling yet which I'm more than happy about since Kinsie was walking by this time...She's still the best baby, I don't know how we were so lucky to have her in our lives,,but lets pray that the next ones will be this good! Still no teeth which isn't a surprise as Kinsie didn't get her first til after she was a year old. I love making bows to put in her hair....piggies or the sumo-tail...I just can't believe that she's almost a year old...and wow now I have to plan a birthday party.... :)Kinsie is getting smarter by the day. This little girl keeps us on our toes! She wants to go to school so bad but won;t be able to until she's almost 6...what am I to do?? Good thing there are tons of free pre k activities and lessons on the internet or I'd be lost. She loves having a backyard to play in..if I can't find her in the house it's because she's in the backyard digging in the dirt..Man I don't know why we didn't have one of these before!! :) It really has been a sanity saver for Josh and I. Lastest things that Kinsie has done or said : Kinsie looking at a lady in a store.. "Why do you have a beard???""Nev[...]

Kinsie's Four!!!!!


Kinsie turned four on October 29th!!! She was able to have a birthday with three friends...which was a lot easier then the last year when she had 13!!! Josh and I wanted to make things a little easier for us so we told her she could invite three of her closest friends....Addi Powell, Raelyn Cummings and then man she's going to marry....which she tells me almost everyday...Jack Cutler. They all had a good time playing games and eating spider cupcakes which Kinsie helped me make... Then on her actual birthday we invited our family over to come celebrate with us. It was a princess birthday and mostly everyone dressed up...Including my parents who came with sashes and all saying prince Grandpa and Princess Grandma...and Grandma Dorothy who came in all her best was a lot of fun!! And check out the cake!!! Decorated my the one and only...ME!!! That's right I did it on my own,...there were some minor adjustments throughout the process but it turned out pretty cool. I decorated it during Kinsies nap..when she came out the cutest expression filled her face as she said...."It's just what I wanted mommy!!!1" A pretty good feeling after cursing the cake for a couple of was all worth it!!![...]

The Latest On Ella


Ella has been such a blessing for us to have in our family...she's the best baby~ Always happy never complaining, will eat whenever I can feed her, loves toys and her big sister. We love having her here and don't remember the times when she wasn't! She is almost 9 months old!!
