Made Me Giggle

Gavin and Kenna are sitting in Kenna's room playing with some toys. Gavin says "Kenna, I'm your big brother and you're my little sister." Then I walk around the corner and say "She loves you, Gav. Do you love Kenna?" He responds with "Yes, I do love you, Kenna. But I don't love you when you slobber on my toys or when you pull my hair."

Ha Ha :)

And yes, she does do those things regularly.

The Army, Really?

You know all those great ideas my husband comes up with? The ones he focuses on for about a month, then gets tired of it and moves on to something better. That's what I thought this was. Just another crazy off the wall thought that wouldn't last. Well, I was wrong. Dead wrong. He has decided to join the military. I spent many hours arguing and debating with him about why this is a horrible idea and cant seem to get through to him. On that note, I have decided to just stop the debating and be supportive of his decisions. He seems to really want this, and if this is going to make him happy then I'm all for it. So, I will keep you all posted on whats going on during this process. So far he has met with a few recruiters from the army, the navy, and the national guard and he is just gathering information and trying to figure out what is best for him and our family. We'll see where this takes us....

On a lighter note, life is good. The kids are great! Gavin is starting soccer next month! He seems to really like it so we're signing him up for classes this spring/summer. Then in the fall, he'll be old enough to play on a team, so if he still loves it, we'll put him on a team! As for Kenna, she is starting to get on her hands and knees and rock back and forth (a sign that crawling isn't too far away). I got her a walker a few weeks ago and she loves it! She loves having that freedom to go where she wants, and she loves chasing the dogs! I put her in the walker while I cook dinner; The other night she grabbed the back of my pant leg as I was rushing around the kitchen and she went for a little joy ride. Ha Ha. It was pretty funny!

Trying Something New... Yikes.

So I am stepping outside my comfort zone and attempting to make baked chicken breasts stuffed with pesto and mozzarella for dinner. I just put the chicken in the oven and let me just say it has started off messy and proven harder than it sounded! I shall let you know what the outcome is........


The chicken breasts turned out wonderful. The were moist, and full of flavor! Kris is pretty picky and he loved them, as did Gavin. Both of them came back for more. This recipe has been added to our list of delicious dinners and we will definitely be having this again. I will post the recipe soon!

Finally catching a break...

Kenna is napping, and Gavin is playing in his new bedroom so I am finally finding some quiet time to post!

I don't think I mentioned that Christmas 2009 was the worst yet for the Orent Family. It all started around 8pm on Christmas eve. We had just finished eating dinner and I started feeling extremely ill.... Ended up not staying up with everyone, just went straight to bed. Woke up around 10pm to everyone having a good time downstairs and I was feeling WORSE then before. To make a long story short, I was up every hour throwing up in the bathroom. At around 6am on Christmas day, Kris jumped out of bed and ran to the bathroom.... He was throwing up now. After getting up and migrating to the couch downstairs to watch the kids open their Christmas gifts, I found out Claire had also started throwing up the night before and she also spent the whole night in the bathroom. I guess we all got a stomach virus or something. Courtney, Conner and the kids never ended up getting it and they basically had Christmas by themselves. Kris and I spent the entire day in bed. Courtney and Conner took Gavin to Popops house and my Mom came and got Kenna for me. I started feeling a little better around 8pm Christmas day but Kris and Claire weren't feeling better until the next day. It must have been a 24 hour stomach bug. So we ended up having our Christmas dinner that Sunday after spending the weekend recovering from our illness.

I spent the following week moving Gavin's WHOLE ENTIRE bedroom from the media room (where he used to be) to the game room. He got so many new toys from everyone for Christmas and there was just no space in the media room for all of his things so we had to move him. AND I did it BY MYSELF because my stubborn husband tried to tell me that his things were not going to look good in the game room and they were going to be too heavy and I wasn't going to be able to move them by myself. Psh, I proved him wrong. Then we moved our living room furniture into the media room so we can actually watch movies in there now :) And Gavin loves having all of his toys in one room. As do I, now that they're not spread all over the house!

Well as for this week... Kim, Mady, and Simmi came over this morning. Since Christmas, Gavin has been saying he wants his friends to come over and play with his new toys with him. So he and Mady spent the day playing upstairs. We had lunch here and Kenna and Simmi had fun sharing toys too... It was a good day :) Gavin has class tomorrow morning, then we've got a few errands to run in the afternoon. Wednesday we're driving out to Lake Worth to see GM :) We haven't been to her house in a very, very long time; So we're going to spend the day with her and Val. Then Friday, Gavin's gym has a Winter Carnival going on so we'll be attending that during the day. We've got a full week planned but it should be fun :)

Another Funny Gavin Comment...

Daddy: "Come on Gav lets get you dressed so we can go out."

Gavin: "No, I want to stay here and watch cartoons!!"

Daddy: "Well you can't stay home by yourself."

Gavin: "Yeah, just get me a banana to eat and put a new pull up on me and I will stay by myself. It will be fine."

Haha. My son is hilarious.
