Sick Sick Sick of Winter!!!

How in the world do you keep your kids healthy??!!
This has been a tough winter for us health-wise. It seems like one of us is sick at any given point. It's McKenna's turn right now - the poor girl cannot breath through her nose, doesn't want to eat, and looks like her eyelids weigh about 10 lbs each. And actually, Dave came home from work last night not looking so good. He says he feels like he's getting the flu. Oh great. I swear, I clean our toys regularly; clean all the door knobs, phones, faucet handles, and keyboards with antibacterial wipes; we wash our hands frequently; I'm giving the girls lots of Vitamin C, fruit, and juice; we don't go anywhere; we haven't had very many playdates; and STILL, we keep getting sick! What else can I do? I am sick of us being sick! The past few days have been really nice outside and I've tried to keep the windows/doors open as much as possible to get fresh air in here - hopefully with the Spring will come healthier days for the Jensen Family. Boy, do we need it!


I went to a Modbe party last night at my friend Lexi's house and found THE CUTEST bathing suits ever. I'm SO EXCITED. I am one of those women who canNOT find a cute bathing suit for the life of me. Nothing seems to fit me right, except for two pieces, but I have a hard time finding a two piece that covers me where I want/need to be covered. Needless to say, I have been looking for a cute swimsuit since I had Katie, and I finally found one (actually two). Check them out: I got the Sea Foam Green ruffle wrap top, the Green Floral lace up, and brown bottoms. I'm so excited! I love that they're mix and match. I can't wait to add to my collection :) I want them all!!! Maybe this summer we'll actually have to go swimming because I'm gonna LOVE wearing my new bathing suits (instead of dreading the occasion). Yay!!!

I think this is this first picture ever of me with BOTH girls. I'll have to check on that, but I am about 90% sure that it is. This was in San Jose at Dave's parents house.
I love these girls!

Alligator - As Requested

"Alligator" by Katie Jensen

She came up with this all by herself. She was drawing in my little notepad very intently, and when I asked her what she was drawing she very matter-of-factly said "an alligator." Sure enough, she was!

I apologize for not being on the ball about updating our blog. I don't know what is going on, but it seems like weeks go by before I even THINK about posting anything. I don't know if it's a time issue, or if our lives just don't seem that exciting lately (that's kind of sad), but I want you to know (those who view our blog regularly) that I am thinking about it and am sorry that we haven't had very many posts lately. I guess I must be encountering some sort of bloggers block. Oh no - another thing to worry about! :)
I don't want to promise anything, but I will try to be better about keeping our blog current.

Recent events:
- Dave's surprise 30th birthday trip to San Jose
- Becca Bailey & kids came to visit!
- McKenna gave me kisses by her own will & choice (yay!)
- Baxter is GROWING
- Katie drew her first alligator
