Brooklyn has said some pretty darn funny things lately. On Friday a friend in the ward did a ladies luncheon / baby shower for Jay and another lady due in two weeks. Brooklyn was all confused by the words "baby shower" She asked "Dad are they going to give Jay a bath??" We laughed.
Then the next day she was eating a brownie that we brought home from the shower. She takes her first bite and says "impressive." she is funny and comes up with some cute things.
Mady is making us CRAZY!! If she's not crying she's doing something to make her sister cry. We can't seem to get her to stay away from or be kind to her sister. And she has really gotten sassy, especially with talking back. She seems too young to be doing that. We have noticed that anything her teacher says is gold and Jappy and I could say the same thing and we're wrong . It's pretty funny. She's reading well, we are very proud of her.
Jay is growing and changing. I hate it. I want him to stay my baby forever. I asked Jap "Do you think if I only fed him 2 oz. a feeding if he will stay a baby?" "No" he says "But you will be in jail"
We love our sweet boy and wish he could stay this way forever.
Unfortunatly He and I got a cold and we're both pretty miserable. I feel terrible for him and his snotty nose. Poor baby.
I will get the pictures up of his blessing soon. I lost my camera for the day so all the pictures are on my moms camera of the blessing. So I'm waiting for her to burn me a CD.

Nieces and Nephews

Ode to Football

Jay's 1st football game with dad.

Football season has officially started at the Jeppsen home. Every Sunday (sometimes Monday) from know till Febuary we will have a full house of friends, good food, and wild kids.
Jappy enjoys having other guys to yell and cheer with. It can get rowdy here. The girls always ask after church " Who's coming to our super bowel party today??" Jappy's playing fantasy football with some colleagues and he's loving it. After every game I hear all about it. Even when I say "I don't care" he still seems to think that I really want to know Silly boys and their games.

B's First Day of Pre School

Brooklyn had her first day of Pre- school and loved every minute of it. I'm not sure if she even told me good bye she was so excited. Mrs. Joni is her teacher and teaches out of her home. There are only 10 kids in her class, 7 of them are boys. She only goes twice a week for 2 hours a day but she wishes she could go every day. I hope she never looses her excitment about school.

First Day of School, Visit from Nana and Papa

Nana came for a visit We had a fun week with her. The girls enjoyed having someone to play with. And I enjoyed having someone cook and clean do the laundry, and take care of the kids. They went to the park, out to lunch, jumped on the trampoline, had tea parties, played games, and Nana sewed the girls costumes for Halloween, and did some mending of pants. She was a busy Nana!

Pinkies up

Papa came on Friday and the girls were excited to see him. He made them a ladder for the trampoline and read them books and played games.

We had a good time the with them and it was sad to see them leave. The girls have asked everyday since they've been gone when they will get to see them again. After mom and dad pulled out of the drive way to head home Brooklyn cried, and cried she didn't want them to leave. We really do miss them, and wish we could see them more often.

Mady's First Day of School !

We have made it through our first few weeks of First grade. It has been a lil bit of a challenge getting up early and her ready by 8:20 in the morning but we're getting it figured out. I did however, fail to pick Mady up on the first day of school. I felt like a terrible mother. Apparently I didin't get the memo that it was only a half day. I got a phone call from Mady saying "mom where are you?" Talk about a poor parenting moment. But she wasn't traumatized no big deal. I think I wasn't more upset by it then her.

Mady loves her teacher and is doing well in class. Her teacher is actually a member and is in our ward. It's crazy to think that she's old enough to be in first grade and be there all day. Brooklyn is enjoying her days with mom, but usually by lunch time is asking when Mady gets home. Brooklyn starts preschool on Tuesday and we're excited about that. We met her teacher yesterday and we think she is going to be perfect for Brooklyn.
( I love him in BLUE )
Jay is almost a month old. Holy Cow time is flying by. I'll post pictures of his blessing in a few days. He is changing everyday. He thinks he wants to suck his thumb. This does not go over well with me. I will NOT have a thumb sucker. Nana and Jappy think it's so cute, and it is but like I've been telling them it won't be cute when he's headed to school with his thumb in his mouth. His hair is lightening up. I guess he won't keep his dark hair. I'll just have to enjoy it while it lasts. He's not loosing it, it's just turning blonde.
He is a very good baby For the most part he sleeps well at night sleeping 4-5 hours at a time, and eating every 2 1/2 - 3 hours during the day. The girls enjoy him still, and are very helpfull. I'm still trying to get things figured out as far as how to get things done while taking care of a newborn. I have forgotten how much work they are, (and how many times I have to change their clothes). I've been spoiled with two older independent girls. All in all thinkgs are going well, and we are all stil adjusting, but it has all been worth it!
