Jenna and Grant are finally cousins to sweet baby Anabel Rose (Annie). Jenna is so excited to finally have and be a cousin, although a little disappointed Annie won't be living with us. We finally got to meet Annie and be there for her baptism. Jenna was in love with Annie and got to hold her, Grant...well, he was more excited about the little dogs to play with.

Jenna and Anabel! She is so tiny and sweet!

This one turned out really blurry for some reason, and you can see Grant trying to escape, but there are all three kids, cousins, grand kids on Erik's side!

I've been an awful blogger lately! When the kids are older, I'll apologize for the gaps between posts on the blog and they will probably say "Whatever Mom!" But, the time will come when they have a family and they will understand the busy, chaotic, "just get through the day" kind of days.
Here are just a couple pictures of Jenna and fun things she's been doing lately. I don't have any new ones of Grant right now from my phone since he doesn't sit still for one second and most of the pictures I try to take are blurry and he's running away from me.

Jenna at the Library! She loves going there, I think she could stay there all day and read books.

Jenna took golf lessons through the City. She recently went golfing with her Dad and Grandpa. She actually has a good swing!

Jenna got a chance to drive a pontoon boat, let's just say it's a good thing she's not old enough to drive yet!
She's giving her fake smile in these pictures, but the thing that stands out the most to me is how old she looks. She's tall and long, and has conversations like:
"Mom, ya know that Justin Bieber song, Baby, Baby, Oh Baby...that's a remarkable song!"
Like always, I'll tell myself I will be a better blogger, but then kids, work, grad classes, to do's, and a little thing called sleep get in the way!
