Just how popular am I?

So I found out that there are only 5 people in the US that have my first and last name. And to think that the world could handle anymore of me out there! Now if you enter in my full name, not the shortened version, then there is NO ONE else....just me!
Another great piece of info that I found out is that my name is number 518th most popular name, wow..that suprised me, I swear there were always like three or four people in my class with the same name growing up.
Something else that I thought was funny was 99.9% of people names Jenny are FEMALE! Man I feel bad that .01% guy that has to go through life with the name Jenny. His parents should be taken out back and beaten with a rubber hose! Poor kid, I bet he got beat up a lot on the playground growing up!!! LOL
LogoThere are
people with my name in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

Hooray for daddy daughter dates!

Last night Tae and Chris went to a daddy/daughter activity days 50's night. We rummaged around the house trying to find something for each of them to wear....I think they look adorable! They had hot dogs, limbo contests, bubble-gum blowing contests and TONS of fun!!

The best day EVER!

Twelve years ago today I made the best decision of my life...I married not only my best friend, but the HOTTEST guy on the planet! How lucky I feel that someone as wonderful as Chris actually wanted to marry me!
So here we are 12 years and four children later....I can honestly say that I love him so much more than I did the day that I married him. Chris is such a wonderful supportive husband, he has ALWAYS supported me in whatever I wanted to do and he is such a great provider for our family.
Tonight we had a fun evening just us, NO kiddo's! My mom came and watched the kids (thanks mom) and Chris and I went out to eat at Spaghetti Factory (we had a gift card!) and then we decided to go to the dollar show (yum, popcorn!) and saw Get Smart, which was soooo funny! It was nice just to spend time alone with my man!
Babe, thanks for giving me four beautiful children and the best 12 years of my life....I feel so lucky to spend the rest of eternity with you! I love you babe!!!

Yeah for kissing pictures!

After 12 years of love from each other

This was our engagement picture and wedding announcements....we look like such young babies! LOL

I loved my dress! That train was so beautiful, but soooooo heavy!

Chris and I doing what I love to do best.....KISSING!

Our wedding line, I loved how all the colors looked together...hey, I had been planning what I wanted my wedding colors to look like for years.

These are my grandpa was the sealer for our wedding. We also chose to get married on the same day that they were married, it is so neat to share our special day with two of my life hero's. BTW- I LOVED my bouquet, but that sucker weighed about 15lbs., my arms were dead by the end of the night.

I am sad to admit that my two year old is addicted to the television. He loves to watch 'his shows', typically you will find him with his baba (bottle, yes I know he is too old to still be drinking a bottle) and his bankie, but on this day he was watching like the above pictures and I just thought that it was so cute I couldn't resist taking a picture. His favorite shows are Yo Gabba Gabba (have you SEEN this show, it is 'make you wanna pull you hair out and poke your eyes out LAME!), Boots (Dora) and Diego (Go Diego, go). I know, I am a bad mom for plopping him in front of the TV, it just makes getting things done around the house so much easier.

Night out with the girls

Tonight some of my friends took me out to dinner for my birthday. I chose to go to one of my favorites...Cheesecake Factory! YUMMMM
We had such a good time visiting and reminiscing about the trip that the four of us took to New York....awwww, good times!
Thanks girls for such a great evening, I love you all!
So in the lobby they have this GINORMOUS palm tree that you literally have to duck under to walk into the lobby....we decided to play hide and seek in it. I know, crazy girls!

Ma ma I'm a big boy now!!!!

The most amazing thing happened this weekend! I was getting Faze ready for his bath and he pointed to his diaper and said "Pee Pee" and then pointed to the toilet. I asked him if he wanted to go pee pee on the big potty and he said "yes" so I put him on not knowing what would happen. Well the boy actually went potty! Not only that, but he has done it about five times since then. Is my two year old actually trying to potty train? I have heard nightmares about potty training boys, can it really be this simple? I hurried and grabbed the camera and took these darling pictures, which I'm sure 15 years from now he will be so upset that I took these. Oh well, I just couldn't resist! Keep your fingers crossed for us that this wasn't just a fluke!!!!

Birthday pics

The kids wanted to take pictures with me on my birthday... I know they are a little blury, but a child took the picture so just deal with it!

Labor day weekend

We had a great Labor day weekend...Chris had a race in Las Vegas, so we spent the weekend at Lake Las Vegas.. If you have never been there then you really must is very family friendly and you don't have to worry about walking through a casino to get to your hotel room. Chris did an amazing job at the triathlon...he took 3rd! Not too shabby for running in 99* weather! The kids loved swimming three times a day and taking the ever popular traditional trip to the M & M factory. We were also able to hang with my brother, sister-in-law and my darling niece Addie, who live down there. Our good friends and neighbor the Barlow's joined us... Blake also was in the race and he did awesome! It was a great trip! Faze at the pool

Help, the Lions are going to eat me!

Eating Gelato....YUMMY!
