Caden Smith

Hi guys,

Our dear little friend Caden Smith has just had his 2nd surgery to repair his Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome on Friday. He and his parents have had a rough day today during this recovery process and he could use our prayers. Please add Caden and his parents, David and Melissa Smith, to your prayers. I know they would appreciate it.

Happy Birthday Mike!!!

Here is Mike opening his presents and checking out the handmade cards from the girls.

Happy Birthday Mike! We celebrated by going out to eat at Gecko Grill (Mike's favorite) and then back to our house for texas sheetcake and ice cream with the girls. We wish you a wonderful year and may all of your birthday wishes come true. We love you and are so grateful that you are in our lives.
For his bday, Mike got an ASU football, signed by very popular and retired coach Frank Kush (thanks for the Posvars and their connections!)

Pat and Farrell came to the gathering, it was fun to see them.

Rob and Jennifer Pickles came to the party, and also Chris and Marlin Posvar came to our little party and ended up reading "Goodnight Moon" to Brynlyn, over and over and over...

and over and over and over..... ha ha Thanks for being such great sports guys! Brynlyn loved it!

Pat and Farrell brought Mike the "toilet pig" that we had given Bompa for his birthday years ago. Bompa still kept it, and when he recently passed away, Pat grabbed it back for us. We love it! It makes the girls giggle like crazy.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to the many, many women who are such wonderful examples to me and my family. I am grateful for you and for everything you give to me.

On this Mother's Day, we hope you have the chance to just "stop and smell the flowers" and enjoy your special day. We wish you a very Happy Mother's Day!
With Love,
The Jensen Family

Abby and Brynlyn

These two little cousins are so sweet together! They are only 2 weeks apart in age and I wish we could get them together more often. They had so much fun together playing and mostly Brynlyn following Abby around. I hope they grow up to be the best of friends!

Colorado Cousins

A bunch of our Colorado cousins came to play this week, Aunt Sandy, Elli, Emma, Rachel, Hannah, and Abby. Uncle Jeff had to fly back early to go back to work. The kids are off track and had a few weeks of vacation, so they came down and played for the week. We had such a great time with them. We don't see them as often as we would like to and we miss them so much!!! Thanks for coming and seeing us guys. We have to do that again soon!

Beautiful Brynlyn: May 12th

Beautiful Brynlyn. I snapped these pictures while she was swimming in the pool. She looked so adorable (and freezing because the water was so cold.) However, she insisted swimming because it's one of her favorite things to do.

Oh my beautiful Brynlyn. What ever would I do without you, my love???

Company Picnic: May 2nd

On May 2nd, we attended the Rossmar and Graham Company Picnic in Scottsdale. It was so much fun. We saw alot of Mike's co-workers and friends, we ate tons of yummy food, the girls got temporary tattoos, did the hula hoop contest, they played the "Fishing Game", participated in the Three Legged Race, and rode the train, of course. We look forward to the next picnic!

Brynlyn and Jackson: April 30th

Jackson came over and played with Brynlyn today. Nothing in the world makes her happier than to have Jackson here to play. They are best buddies and we are so happy that Janelle and Eric are willing to share him with us as much as they do. We adore him and think he's just the cutest thing around!

Granda's Birthday: April 20th

On April 20th was Mike's Mom, Pat Jensen AKA Granda's birthday. We went to Olive Garden to celebrate with a yummy dinner and of course completely embarrassing restaurant servers that just love to sing Happy Birthday. It was alot fun! Happy Birthday Granda! We love you!
