It's a........

Well for those of you who I don't have your phone number... (or I forgot) we are having a BOY! I am thrilled that I will have a cute little Levi in my house. I'm sure it will definitely be an adventure, but we are so excited! Levi was very proud of himself because he has been sure it was a boy since day 1. I am glad he got his wish. It will be fun! They said I am actually measuring at 21 weeks, not 20... but sadly aren't changing my due date. Probably just a bit larger of a baby considering the Jensen genes. Everything developmentally looks excellent, so that is great! Now.. whether I will be able to push him out.. that is another story, we'll just have to wait and see! After my mother's and sister's histories, I don't have the greatest of chances... but I am sure going to put forth a good effort! As of now we will most likely name him Brighton Levi.. unless I have some major change of heart between now and then! We can't wait for this new adventure and are so excited to start our family!

Ella's new BEST Friend, Lefi.

I guess he officially stole my role :) She wanted him ON every single toy with her, NO watching! Her favorite place all weekend was on his shoulders!

How you know you're totally broke.

Not only.. do you stay at the Holiday Inn for your anniversary...

You steal ALL the cups for use at your house because you're too cheap to buy plastic cups! :)

Hooked on Phonics Worked for Me!


My five-year old students are learning to read.

Yesterday one of them pointed at a picture in a zoo book and said, 'Look at this! It's a frickin' elephant!'

I took a deep breath, then asked...'What did you call it?'

'It's a frickin' elephant! It says so on the picture!' ;

And so it does...

' A f r i c a n Elephant '

Hooked on phonics! Ain't it wonderful?

Now that's funny, I don't care who you are.

Well as some of you know, I quit my job two weeks ago! Today was my last day and I haven't felt this relieved to be done with a job in a very long time! I have been lucky enough to have several options come my way. I have a few dance classes to teach and also a family that I will most likely nanny for, and some houses to clean. And I just listed the ads for it online today! We are excited for fall! Levi now has a full time position doing therapy with his students ( WITH BENEFITS!! which is the only reason I could quit my job!) I am VERY excited for my new jobs if you can't tell!:) Levi said when I got home, You haven't been this happy in a long time! And it's so true because I've been tied down to a job I could hardly handle everyday! So it should be fun for sure! Wish us luck! On anther note, we got to go look at our new apartment in Rexburg this weekend! Well.. it was in shambles and construction :) But we saw one just like it too that is finished. We are excited to move up there! The next few months will be quite the adventure for us!

The Last Few Weeks..

Ok, here is my explanation.. My pictures aren't showing up on the edit screen, just a bunch of jumbled text! So... the pictures are of.. a weekend family reunion at Bear Lake, Levi and I's frosting fight on my birthday, Levi waterskiing on the Snake with the Jensens,Micah & Shannon fitting in Levi's XXL hoodie (which is too big on him to begin with and very stretchy :), and our trip to Yellowstone! There ya have it!
