Snow Day!

Hooray! It has been snowing (well...spitting flurries) all day long! I absolutely love it! These little foot prints in the snow are Chloe's from our 1st official snow day back in January! As if you could not tell...they certainly are not my giant feet :) Unfortunately, we were not able to go and play in the snow this morning...well, not yet anyway! Not too much to report from the Jenkins Clan! Chloe had a check up this morning with our favorite Dr...Dr. Roads! She adores him! She has recently had a bout with dual ear infections...thankfully, all is well. I am getting tired or administering steroids to my 17 month old! Hopefully, with the weather warming up, she won't be nearly as sick! Other than that, I am well on my way to doing some Spring Cleaning (Yuck)! Wish me luck :) Our bathrooms and floors are in need of a lot of attention...which, I am not too proud to say! Well, I hope that everyone is enjoying the Winter Wonderland! I know I am! Stay Warm!

Viva Las Vegas

Well, being that this is the first ‘real’ post...I want it to have some impact! Blake and I just got back from Las Vegas. It was the most fabulous trip I have ever taken. We went with our friends Brittnye and Steven. You know when you see Vegas on TV (yes Jennifer, like the Real World), you don't think that is really what it is like. Well, let me tell you. It is exactly what you think it is...and more. I can't even describe the Casinos, the lights, the is amazing. If you have never been, you need to book your flight now! Gambling is not my thing necessarily, but Blake seems to enjoy it! We also came home winners...and for those of you who know Blake, this is probably surprising. Actually, it is probably surprising to you that we did not loose our house! Just kidding :) I wanted to share some pictures of our trip. All in all, it was good few days to recharge our batteries…working and being a parent is tiring. Oh, how could I forget? We went to see “LOVE” which is a Cirque De Sole show in Vegas. Truly the most amazing part of the trip!

Okay, secondly, I am not a writer…never claimed to be...but I thought I would give this Blogging thing a shot. Maybe it will only last a never know! Feedback would be appreciated! I hope that our family and friends enjoy getting day-to-day updates on the Jenkins Family…especially little Chloe, who does something new and funny almost everyday!
