My Wii. I am so in love with our family Christmas gift: Wii. I keep beating my mommy in tennis and golf. She's pretty good at bowling but that's it. :)

My other favorite gift is the movie: Alvin and the chipmunks: The Squeakquel. LOVE IT! I've watched it EVERYDAY since I got it Saturday. Just L-O-V-E it! I watched it AGAIN today - twice!

Mommy and sissies are going to a basketball game tomorrow and aren't taking me. I'm upset but I'm going to hang out with my granny and Auntie.

FINALLY

OMG...finally my mom is blogging for me. I'm so excited to be back on. Okay let me tell you what's been going on since Thanksgiving.

We celebrated Ambria's 17th birthday. It was fun. That same weekend I spent the night at Granny's and we went to church. The following weekend I went to my Godbrudder's Reece 3rd birthday party. We had so much fun. It was a CAR theme party and it was so cute.

The following weekend was Auntie's birthday. Mommy and Granny had the party for grown ups only but Sunday we had her favorite cake and ice cream.

Every day since December 1 Mommy lets me open one gift bag until Christmas. I find neat stuff like gum, Winnie the Pooh notebook, fruit roll ups, etc...:) Oh and I'm out of school. My last day was last Thursday but guess what? Last Tuesday we didn't have school because it snowed. We had a snowball fight and Aunties. I threw snowballs at Trey and Brooke but they hit me more than I hit them. It was a lot of fun! I love snow.

I will make my mommy write more and keep you all updated.

Love you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Mom, you're FIRED!

I think I'm going to fire my Mommy today. She hasn't blogged for me in a very long time. So much has happened and you missed it all. I need to put pictures from the Pumpkin Patch. Pictures from Halloween/Fall fest. Pictures from Mt Zion children's Lock In. Pictures from daddy. Pictures from TSU Homecoming ... I really need to catch you up!

I'm doing great in school. I had above average and average grades. I really love my school and teacher. She's the greatest!

I have to go 'cuz I'm watching the movie, Mr. Mom. It's an old favorite of my Mom's. I'm giving her one more chance to keep my blog updated ... she is now on probation.

Love you all!

Wait, here's a picture of me and Mommy as cowgirls at her job. She doesn't like this picture so this is payback for not blogging. :)

Fall Break









I'm off this week from school. I didn't want to be off. I like my school. I like my teacher. I miss being in school and can't wait to go back.







My sister Amani and cousin Brooke had their LIT presentation this past Saturday. It was a lot of fun and we had a GREAT time. They looked REALLY nice. :)

I know I know I KNOW ...



I know its just the beginning of October but I'm so excited for Halloween/Fall Fest. We really don't celebrate Halloween but we have a fun Fall Fest. This past Friday we had it at school and I went to the Haunted House TWICE. Wasn't even scared. Ms. Marshall, my teacher, was a witch but she didn't scare me.

Saturday Amani had her first cheerleading competition. Actually (that's a new word daddy told me what it meant) it was what she called a showcase 'cuz they didn't place any of the squads. They just did their routine...TWICE. Me, Mommy, and KayKay (Amani's BFF) watched and cheered on the Cane Ridge Ravens. We said we had the most diverse and cheerful squad. It reminded mommy of the movie, Bring It On! They were awesome. Mommy video'd it but she's not really good at video taping. She gets too excited and off focus. I'll have daddy down load it later tonight.

I missed church this morning. :/ Uh oh!

I'm Pretty Wonderful

Mommy says I'm pretty wonderful. She said that because I had a great week at school.

Monday I got a purple star with a smiley face. Tuesday I got a green dot (good day). Wednesday I got a purple star and was a helper.
Thursday I got a blue dot (GREAT day)...wonder what I'll get today? I'm shooting for purple but mommy said it's okay if I get a blue or green dot ... just stay off of yellow, orange and definitely red.

I'm going to have a very fun weekend. Tonight I'm going to granny's slumber party. Tomorrow I'm going to Lauren's birthday party (I get to dress up as a princess). Sunday we're going to church!
I *love* my life.

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Purple Star 2

Guess what everyone ... I got ANOTHER purple star today. Yes that's two in one week. I'm so happy!!! So are mommy and daddy! They said they're proud of me. :) I was also Ms. Marshall's Helper today.

Yeah me!!!

I'm Mad at Mommy


I had a great day today. It was cold this morning so I got to wear my new blazer. I was on good behavior and got a purple star with a smiley face.
Daddy gave me ice cream and I played with my friends. I also ate a piece of cake for dessert.
But then mommy spank me 'cuz I wouldn't go to bed. She said it's too late to be up. :( So I'm crying myself to sleep.
Good night!

Catching Up!

I've been in school for about three weeks now and I really like it. My mom has plenty of pictures of me on her Facebook but I'll add a few here.








I really like riding the bus especially with my new friend, Jaylen. He's my brother. My mommy and I made back-to-school cupcakes that I shared with my next door neighbors and cousins. They were really good.







I have two friends in my class and their mommy and daddy are friends of my mommy and daddy. Mommy said that's "a small world".

This past weekend was no labory day at least that's what my mommy and daddy said it was. We didn't do any labor this past weekend. We went to my daddy and mommy's friend's house: Ms. Jennie and Mr. Charles. My daddy tried goat and yes I tried some too. It was good and I had two pieces. My godbrudder Reece hung out with me. He's a big boy now...not a baby.


We had a great extended weekend.
Oh wait I have to tell you about my teacher's daily behavior chart. Red dot means you had an eggs-tream-lee (extremely but she says it like how it's spelled) bad day...orange dot is a bad day ... yellow is okay day ... green dot means good day ... blue dot means GREAT day and a purple star means eggs-tream-lee GREAT day. It's not normal to have two purple stars in one week but I did. :) But I also got a yellow dot that same week. :/ So I'm going for purple, blue and green ... no more yellow! I love Ms. Marshall (my teacher) too much to get yellow, orange and red.
Have a Terrific Thursday tomorrow ... night night!

It's been a while huh?

I know ... my mommy has really been busy. With Ambria in LIT and a junior in high school taking all honors classes and Amani is in cheerleading, LIT and a sophomore and I'm a kindergartener who just started ballet - we are always on the go! It's so bad my mommy hasn't been on Facebook for weeks. And she LOVES Facebook.

Tonight we have a bunch of pictures to share so I'll make her sit down at her desk and update my blog!!! There's so much I want to tell you all but I'm keeping it for later. *smile*

I'm going to make mommy slow down so we can visit my blog more often and keep you in the know okay!?! Here's a picture of me on my way to school. By the way, I love my school, my teacher and my friends. I just love kindergarten so much!!!!
TTYL ... e-hug to you!

KINDERGARTEN

Good morning...this is Jailyn's Mom, Janine. I have taken over her blogspot this morning because Jailyn is in school. She's at Mt View Elementary school enjoying a 1/2 day of kindergarten. Yep, she's a kindergartener already. Although I am sooooo happy for my baby girl, this was a very sad day for me. I just can't believe she's in school already. TIME FLIES!

video

I'm still in shock that Jailyn is in school ... and she's riding the bus back home. :( Now excuse me while I go and cry.

Bye!

Kindergarten Orientation

Today was my kindergarten orientation and assessment. I met a new friend. Mommy asked what was her name and I told her "I don't know...I just met her". :/

Bugs bugs and more bugs


I really really really love bugs. My mommy sent me a picture of an ant that I can eat. *smile* Its not real, it's a cupcake! I hope mommy will make these for me.

We had a bug fly into the house last night and daddy couldn't find it. I don't know where he is. I'm going to look for it later today.
I watched Animal Planet yesterday and it didn't talk about bugs but they showed a bull poke a lady three times with his horn. She didn't die but she was hurt really bad. Mommy doesn't like to watch that kind of stuff but I'm not scared. I think it's interesting.
Ambo painted my nails and they look cute.
I really miss going to the library with my Granny. :(
I have to go ... talk to you later! Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday. :)

Farmer Jai







Look! I have a bunch of tomatoes from my birthday plant. I know we really don't eat tomatoes but mommy and I are going to make salsa and if we have a lot we'll give it out as gifts. I'm so excited about my tomatoes. My tomatoes has a pet caterpillar. I named it Trista. See her in the picture?

I'm so excited about going to school. I tried on all of my outfits Sunday night and I looked cute. :)

Daddy pulled my second tooth and I now have a big door to my tongue. Daddy said I talk funny.

Friday, July 16, 2010

It's Out!


My tooth is gone...Daddy pulled my tooth. It took him two tries. I cried a little 'cuz it kinda hurt but I'm glad it's out. I have one more that's loose and Daddy is gonna pull it so on.

Mommy has a fairy door for me so the tooth fairy can come to our house and take my tooth and leave me some money. I hope she comes to my bedroom tonight! I'm so excited.


In the morning we're going to see my Granny's cousins and later on go see my Papa and Grandma in Memphis...I can't wait to show 'em my new smile.

Supply Shopping


Mommy and I had a date night last night. Daddy had another basketball game...Ambria and Amani were getting ready for a party so Mommy and I went for crab legs. :) I wanted clams but they didn't have any. I saw clams on Disney and always want them. After we ate we went shoppng for supplies at Target. I got everything but a backpack. Mommy said the backpack was too much for a 5 year old. We had to run and get sissies for their party so I didn't get a backpack. :( I was sooo sad. Then mommy took me to WalMart and they had a Princess of Disney backpack and I wore it the entire time at the store. Even in my car seat. In the house. Daddy tried it on and it was too small. I showed it to sissies when they came back from the party and they wanted to wear it too. :) But it's ALL mine.


My tooth is sooooo loose and daddy wants to pull it out.


Good night.

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

My oh My

Oh no...I just talked to my Mommy. She's crying. She just received my supply list for kindergarten and it made her cry. She don't want me to go to school. She wants me to be a baby forever. I told her I'm a big girl!

I really can't wait for kindergarten at Mt. View school. I want to ride the yellow bus but daddy said not his baby. I keep telling him I'm a big girl. Amani gets to ride the yellow bus to her school. :(

I'm so xcited about school. Tonight we are buying backpacks and lunch boxes.

OMG!

I must tell you about my vacation. We went to Racine, Wisconsin to see my family. My mommy and daddy grew up in Racine. We went by my mommy's old house and her elementary and high schools. We saw my dad's high school too. I saw my family...I have a whole bunch of cousins. I had sooooooo much fun that I'm going to stay a whole month next summer.

We saw the fireworks on the beach and it was beautiful but loud! My cousin Rick had sparklers for us kids too. :) We stayed up late every day and would go and go and go every day.

We hung out with my mommy's college friend, Denice, and her family. She kept saying I should be on tv...hmmm maybe I should have my own show. :) Her son Stephen was a little boy but he was fun to play with.

We had a GREAT time and I can't wait for our next vacation.

Randomness


Here is a picture of my friend Jayla. We met at Relay for Life. She's 5 too and she's my friend. We saw movies together and we played in KidZone.
We had sooooo much fun.
I'm going to Racine to see my family. My daddy is driving us all to see my uncles, aunts and a lot of cousins...I can't wait.
I love family!

Relay for Life - Part 2


We went back to the church for more Relay for Life. Granny spent the night there. I played with my friends again and found a new friend, Jayla.


I had a GREAT time at Relay for Life. :)

Relay for Life - Part 1




Wow! We had a lot of fun at our church's Relay for Life this weekend. I have tons of pictures to share but you have to wait til my Mommy gets home.

We got there while the sun was going down so it wasn't as hot but it was still HOT! We sat with Granny and her team. They had all kinds of healthy treats and goodies. I was so excited because there was a stage and we danced and sung songs. Miss India is over our children and youth ministry and she told how she beat cancer. It was sad. I'm glad she beat it. Chris Sanders was there and he used to play with the Tennessee Titans. He was really nice. We walked around for cancer. Mommy then let me play in KidZone. They had a bouncy house and I saw some of my friends from my old school. :) We had a lot of fun! Then it got really dark and Daddy and Mommy came and pick me up and Mommy told me about Granny's Mommy: Grandma Juanita. My Granny had a light bag (luminary) for her. Mommy told me how she went to see HER Granny while I was still in her tummy. Great Grandma Neat (nickname for Juanita) called my Mommy a fat joker and when Mommy told her no, I'm not fat I'm pregnant :) Great Grandma laughed and rubbed my Mommy's tummy. I think that's why Mommy was sad when she saw the lighted bag with Juanita Cannon printed on it. :/ But I made Mommy smile again. Ambria and Amani went home with Auntie and daddy went to help a friend move furniture so it was just me and mommy having girl time. I love girl time. I got hungry (again-the child has a bottomless pit, per Jailyn's mom) so I called Daddy and told him to bring home Taco Bells. We had a fun day and night! I have to go so I tell you more when Mommy gets home. LOVE YOU!!!

Jailyn and the cricket


Today I saw a big big big cricket at our house. :) It was in the Christmas tree (a fir tree).


I have bad news. :( Right now the Lakers are winning and Daddy is upset! He is yelling at the tv and he is really MAD! I want the Celtics to win too.
Today Brookie went home and I'm sad because we had a slumber party since Monday night. I miss her.
Tomorrow Granny is having Relay for Life at church. I'm going to walk for my Great Grandmas. We walk to wipe out CANCER.
I'm going to bed...good night!

Wonderful Wednesday

Today I went back to the library with my Granny. I love reading time. Granny let me check out my favorite magazine, DogFancy.

I hung out with my sissies and cousin, Brooke. Brooke is spending the night.

Brooke, Amani, Ambria, Daddy, Mommy and me went to Centennial Park for Movies in the Park. Mommy and I had cheese popcorn and sweet kettle corn and then we saw Cupcake Collection. :) We HAD to get a strawberry cupcake for Daddy and chocolate for me. :):) Mommy end up eating daddy's cupcake. LOL! :) The bugs were everywhere and it took them forever to start the movie. I saw a very big dalmation and thought it was a horse. There were two horses at the park and they work for the police so I couldn't touch them. They were really pretty. Then they showed the movie. The Pink Panther. But it was only 5 minutes and I wasn't ready to go. Then daddy said that wasn't the movie - just a short film to get ready for the real movie. Totally Blonde was the real movie. BORING! I saw two bats. There were a lot of bugs and mommy and daddy got tired of hitting all of them so we left and that's when we heard the firecrackers. All of the kids RAN! Daddy got upset and said the teenagers were being silly and stupid. I hope they don't stop Movies in the Park because of the silly kids.

It is late and Mommy said we have to go to bed right now! Good night!

My tooth is STILL loose

I talked to Mommy today and told her "call the dentist today!" but she said my tooth is still not loose enough. I think it's loose enough!

I had so much fun at Bible Camp and I thought it was this week too. :/ I miss it!

I made a super hero cape with matching eye shield. Once mommy comes home I will have her upload a picture of me in my super hero gear. It sure makes me run faster.

My cousin Brittani is coming over...I'm so excited! I haven't see her in a very long time. She is also my mommy's Goddaughter and she is going to MTSU the same time I start Kindergarten. I bet she's nervous like I am about starting at a new school. Can't wait for her to come over so we can talk about school.

I have to go...oh and I have to show you pictures of me in my new swimsuit...we went swimming last night. I stood in the pool and reached the bottom...I was in the 3 feet area.

Monday, June 7, 2010

Catching Up!


WOW! Its been a long time since my Mommy blogged. A lot has happened so let me catch you up to speed.


I went to see my sister, Ambria, run track at MTSU. She did a great job and I got to see my cousin, Jasmine, run. They both got medals for winning. When we were there I found a friend from Brentwood. He and his wife were really nice. He asked me "what do you wanna be when you grow up?" and I don't know why he laughed when I said "i wanna be 6". :)

Mommy and I made sticky sweet cinnamon rolls. They were really good and I gave one to Granny. I like to cook.
My front bottom right side tooth is loose. Mommy and Daddy keep telling me to eat apples but they really hurt my tooth. It is still loose and I'm scared to take it out.

My tomatoes are growing. We don't like tomatoes but Mommy and I are going to make homemade salsa.
Me and my friend Andrea caught fireflies and I put it in my bug house Papa and Grandma brought me for Christmas. I had them in my room and wanted to let them go free in my room but Amani said NO!

Today I went to Bible Camp by myself. I didn't cry either. I met new friends. I am a hero with Christ. I want to go everyday til 10 hundred. I had so much fun! Daddy said he like the church and will take me tomorrow.

I made a picture for my Pa Pa and Daddy let me mail it to him. :) I wrote him a letter too.

I have to go because it is late and I have to take a bath before I go to bed. Mommy promised she will update more often and post m0re pictures.

Love you all! Good night!!!

Its My Party!




I know I know I know...its been a very long time since my mommy wrote on my blog. So let me tell you now ... I am FIVE years old! :) I turned five this past Monday. I had my party Saturday. We had a GREAT time! We had a BUGS and BUTTERFLIES theme party 'cuz I love bugs and I really love butterflies. My mommy, auntie Ericka, Brooke and sisters did an awesome job decorating the house. Daddy even cut butterflies for my party. It was the best day ever.


My Aunt Ericka did face painting and did my whole face as a butterfly. :) I did a scene from Avatar cuz I look like her.


Wednesday, May 5, 2010

So much going on...

Guess what - it's May!!! I love May...my mommy's birthday is May, Mommy's day is in May, Trey's birthday is in May and MY BIRTHDAY is MAY!! May 17th. This year I turn 5! My mommy and daddy is having a bugs and butterflies birthday for me. I LOVE bugs and butterflies just as much as I LOVE baby dogs (puppies).

We had a flood this weekend...I saw a lot of bugs then. Saturday we were going to Cool Springs mall but stopped at my Auntie/Granny's house. Around 3p Auntie called and said it was flooding so we left. By the time we got to the highway there were cars floating under I24. It was scarey to see. Then mommy's car stopped 'cuz she went through a BIG pond. We had to go to the far left side of the highway 'cuz the first two right lanes were full of water. That's when I saw the lightning and cried. I was SCARED! Mommy told us to pray and we did...then Granny called and told Mommy the tornado was near us. We couldn't find daddy. I was more scared and cried more. We went ahead and mommy drove home the back way. We walked in and went straight to the closet to stay safe. I was mad at daddy cuz he didn't call us. He gave mommy the house phone - it was off! :( The storm took away the phone. We watched on tv and the water went over the same highway we were on. IT WAS SCAREY! I thought of Haiti. :/

It was raining still on Sunday and that was mommy's birthday. We still had fun and she enjoyed her day ... in pajamas. :) giggle giggle.

Monday is was super sunny and warm outside. I played with my friends and had FUN!!! Yesterday was warm too. I played til 730p. :):):) Today I went to the library with my granny and had fun! I like the library. We still have snails on our front porch and driveway. :) I won't let Remi eat them. They are neat!

WOW I have to make mommy write more often because so much goes on and she should let my friends and family know. :)

I turn 5! I have a party next Saturday and I can't wait!!! I'm so excited. No more floods 'cuz I have an outside party and we're going to play and have fun! Bugs and butterflies. We have butterfly nets. Bugs but they're not real. W have all kinds of goodies and I'm so happy! Mommy is a pretty good party giver (planner). :)

Good night I have to go to bed. Love you all!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Catch Up

Seriously, my mommy really need to work on organizing her time.

Granny and I went to the library today and I made a picture with a rainbow. The librarian LOVED it...she likes rainbows too. I also made a frog that leaps. We got some lunch and went to the park.

Mommy picked me up and we went home.

Daddy and I just gave Remi a bath. I love my daddy so so so much! I love Remi. Oh I almost forgot, I have a pet dragon from the store. Mommy doesn't like dragons.

Daddy is now watching the basketball game...he was on the internet on nextbestmove.com. He looked funny.

I have to go now...it is late and mommy wants me to go to bed.

Love you!

Long time, no blog!

My mommy has been soooooo busy she hasn't blogged for me in a long time. So today she promised she would blog. WHEW! I'm glad she's back!

Today was Earth Day and I was so excited. Daddy and I cleaned the world by picking up garbage in our neighborhood. We dug up weeds in our garden. We recycled too. I did homework all about Earth Day. To celebrate daddy bought me a bag of the new Sun Chips. I like their commercial and always wanted a bag of Sun Chips. It's the bag that is compostable. That means if it happens to be on the ground it will be part of the earth instead of be like regular litter. Then a sunflower can grow from it.

Mommy is not going to work tomorrow so it's all about me day tomorrow. Mommy is going to play with me, help me with my homework and we're going to my sisters' schools and have lunch with them. YEAH!!! Then we go see Ambria run track and win!

Oh I forgot to tell you...Monday Amani got her permit. Now she can drive if Mommy or Daddy is in the car with her.

Okay I'm sleepy...I'm going to bed. I love you and have a FUN and FANTASTIC Friday tomorrow.

Oh and another fun fact: I know how to tie my shoe...but I do better when Daddy is with me.

Nite nite!

More about Easter

Last night me and mommy bought some stuff at Target and WalMart for next Easter. We got GREAT deals.


Here is a picture from our Easter at church. I was a very good girl in church. I didn't sleep for a long time.


Today I hung out with Mommy and Daddy at home then Mommy had to go to work. I wanted her to stay at home. :(


Granny and Auntie's friend from Wisconsin came to visit so I didn't get to hang with my Granny this week. We missed the library. This was a hard week.

Mr. Tony Gray

So much has happened since the last time I blogged. My daddy and mommy friend, Mr. Tony, passed last Sunday. My daddy is taking it very hard 'cuz they were close to the same age. His daughters Amiah and Lindsay are my friends. They came to my tea party. Daddy is sad. Pray for my friends and Miss Lois.

Today daddy dropped Ebon off to school and then took me on a shopping spree. I bought a little bowling ball and pins, sticky spray and nerf bow and arrow. We played with them all day!

Yesterday was Easter and we had a GREAT time. We went to church two times. In the morning we had Easter time and had dinner at my granny and Auntie's house. Then we went back to church for cracker and juice (communion service) and little kids said Easter speeches. It was very nice. The day before Easter we had our annual Easter Egg Hunt. I found a lot of candy eggs and money (found a total of $5.75) and my Godbrudder, Reece, found money too. My Godsister Breanna found almost $13. She did really good. We did arts and crafts and decorated our cupcakes. We had so much fun and we took a lot of pictures but daddy accidentally deleted them. :( That made mommy really mad and sad.

Easter Easter this is happy Easter...



Easter is almost here! My mommy sings a song every Easter. She said she used to sing it when she was a little girl.

"Easter Easter this is happy Easter, Jesus Lives! Jesus Lives! Easter Easter this is happy Easter, Jesus Lives! Jesus Lives!"

I can't wait for EASTER!

It is rainy today so I can't go out and play but I will play with Remi after I finish my homework. Then I'm going over Granny's!!

PaPa and Grandma sent me a box of goodies Tuesday and I am STILL going through everything they sent me. My sissies say I'm spoiled but I say I'm lovable.

Love you all...have a great day!

My family is back!

For Spring Break everyone was gone! Ambo was in Florida, mommy and Amani went with Granny, Auntie and Brooke for the weekend and Trey was at his friend's house. It was just me and daddy the WHOLE weekend.

I did get to hang out with Aunt Linda Saturday morning. She made me look like a princess. She braided my hair and guess what?!?! I did not cry. I'm a big girl!!! Aunt Linda also did my nails and toes and we went to McDonald's and we sat inside. We had a GREAT time!

Then I hung out with my Godmommy and Godbrudder, Reece. We played and played and guess where we went for dinner. YEAH my favorite place: McDonald's!!!

I had fun all day Saturday but I really missed everyone. They all came home Sunday! :) I gave mommy a big hug and kiss and rubbed on her. She asked why i was rubbing and I told her to give her my germs. Then she can call sick in the morning.

I love family!

Spring is almost here!

I took my nap today and woke up with daddy promising me we'll walk Remi. We played outside with Remi and it is really nice outside. I love to play.

My mommy didn't blog much this week and I was mad. She said she'll do better.

My sissy, Ambo, left for Panama Beach, FL to run track and I miss her already. I hope she wins. She told me she has 4 to run. That is a lot but she's fast.

Amani and Mommy go on their vacation tomorrow with Auntie and Granny. :( I stay home with daddy and help take care of Remi. I love Remi sooooo much!
Now that its not cold outside I hope me and Mommy can start our garden. I want a lot of flowers, strawberries, watermelon and carrots.
Bye bye!

Today we took Remi to the doggy spa and she got a haircut. She really looks cute. We forgot to bring her sweater and it's really cold today so we bought her a sweatjacket that is really cute. I love her sooooooo much.


I hung out with Mommy and my sissies all day! Mommy and I finished our St. Patty's Day project and it's really cute!


I got to go to bed 'cuz mommy said it's late. Oh and here's a picture of me at Granny's birthday lunch. I was afraid of the fire on the hibachi grill.

What a day!

My mommy took Remi for her spa day at the groomers. She looks so cute with her new haircut. We went and bought her a new sweatshirt since it's sooo cold here and we forgot to bring one of her sweaters. I love her soooo much!

My Granny is 60!

My Granny turned 60 today. We had a party at a Hibachi grill. The cook was really neat and made fire. I didn't get burn. I ate my vegetables 'cuz he made them taste really good. I like Yomotas! I want to go again. After our late lunch with Granny we went back to Auntie's and had cake and ice cream. The cake had jelly inside and I didn't like that. Mommy said it's a "danish layer" but I didn't like that layer of rasberry jelly. Auntie had the movie "The Tooth Fairy" and it was okay.

It is really late and I didn't take a nap today. I'm going to bed now. Guess what!?!? My mommy isn't going to work tomorrow. She is spending the whole day with me. :) I'm so happy! We are going to take Remi to get her hair cut, pick up Granny's desk and take her shopping and then Mommy and I are going to finish our St. Patty's Day project.

Love you all and gooooooooooood night!

Everyone is sick

Ambria was sick since Saturday but she went to school today. Daddy has been sick since Sunday night. Today Amani said she was sick...her tummy is rumbling. Brooke and Trey aren't feeling good either. Goodness! I feel great. I'm not sick.

I went to the library with Granny. Did I tell you all I went to a play last week with Granny? I love to read and I now love plays. Had a GREAT time.

My mommy got an A on her quiz. I think she knows everything.

Today I helped mommy make 2 pizzas. She can't have any because she can't have bread. I told her pizza doesn't have bread it has crust. Maybe she don't know everything. I don't like sausage so she ate all of mine.

I'm going to go and hang out with daddy and make him feel better.

I love you! Good night!!

Whata Weekend

What a weekend? Friday night I went to see my sister Ambria run track. She won the 100 yd dash AND the 4x400 relay. I am so proud of her. It was COLD outside. Mommy treated everyone to McDonald's. She is on a diet and she didn't eat any french fries. I'm proud of my mommy.

Saturday and today I stayed in my pjs all day. Ambria and I got a little sick from the track meet. My mommy made my favorite: LASAGNA! I ate two pieces because I love it. I really didn't like the salad but I ate the apples that were in it.

ILOVEU!!! Good nite. Smooches!

Library

I went to the library with my Granny. Today a grown up told me to"hush" twice. That was mean huh? I picked three books. I went back to my Granny's house and had a lunchable and I shared my treat with Granny. Granny and Brookey took me home.

It was a slow and chilly day.

I love you - good night!

Monday's Madness

Ambria stayed home today; not feeling well. But daddy made us "work" so she'll be at school tomorrow. LOL!

I know a lot but now I'm learning the months of the year.

I wanted to go with my daddy to pick up my cousin, Ebon, but he made me stay home. I beat him up! I really wanted to go.

My mom made Broccali and Chicken braid and I loved it. It was very good.

I love you! Good good good night!

I'm sorry

I'm sorry I haven't written on my blog in a long time. My mom has been busy with school and I'm not really good at spelling or I would do it myself.

Did you hear about the earthquake in Chile? So sad. I pray for them and Haiti.

I went to the play The Three Little Pigs with my granny on Saturday and had so much fun. It was the first time we could be loud in the library. Then we went on a hike in her backyard. Auntie is painting her house so I got to help dust the walls.

My Auntie Linda was going to take me to IHop but no one answered the house phone. :( I LOVE pancakes.

Last Thursday I saw my cousin, Trey, play in his band. He's REALLY good...I think I will play the drums too. Or the cymbals.

This morning mommy was worried about me because I fell asleep Saturday at 430p and didn't wake up til 9 this morning. That's a LONG time to sleep.

I saw my cousin on my mommy's facebook tonight. She's my 3rd cousin and she's really pretty. I want to give her a hug. I like her curly hair.

Okay it is really late and my daddy just talked to his friend GT. Their friend Juany lost his mom today. I didn't know what that meant so mommy said she's in heaven. I'm glad.

I'm going to say my prayers and pray that mommy's headache goes away. I love you everybody! Good night!

It's Late but...

I know it's really late but I can't go to sleep. Mommy forgot to blog and I want everyone to know I love you! Today I got the book Kumbaya and I really like the song. I'll make a video and post tomorrow if Mommy remembers.

Love you and remember Haiti.

Oh and my Aunt Linda was sick today...I hope she feels better.

Monday, February 22, 2010

Mommy is sick

Mommy didn't go to work today because she's not feeling well. But we hung out a little. She gave me homework and we ate cookies together. She let me watch whatever I wanted. I told her I wish we could do today all over 'cuz I like her at home.

I helped daddy clean up. I vaccuumed the bedroom.

I have to go 'cuz mommy is really tired but she's cool and I love her.

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Bowling

I know it's really really late but I'm so excited. I had a wonderful day. I talked to my Grandma and Paw Paw today. We talked while I watched cartoons. I miss them.

I helped mommy clean up today. I let sissy, Amani, finish my hair so I could go outside and played. I played with my friends Cassandra and Andrea. We had FUN even though I fell.

My Auntie Ericka called and we met her at the bowling alley. WE HAD FUN!! I almost beat everyone...I scored 35! Mommy will post pictures tomorrow...it's really late. Shhhh I'm not sleepy so I'm going to the bonus room. GOOD NIGHT! :)

Home School

Yesterday I spent the day with Granny at the library. I kept my bird book but I got a book on caterpillars. There was a lot of kids there this time.

Today daddy gave me homework and I watched some of PBSKids Go. Mommy and daddy talked about the man who hit the building with a plane. That was scarey.

I told Mommy "I didn't pray for Haiti in a long time" so we prayed for the kids.

My cousin Tyler is coming over this weekend and I'm sooooo excited because Breanna is getting baptized this Sunday at church.

I'm going to bed - GOOD NIGHT!

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Daddy and me

Me and daddy relaxed today. Ambria and Amani hung out with Granny, Brooke and Trey so Daddy took me to McDonalds.

Tonight I talked to Paw Paw. Grandma was on the computer so I only talked to Paw Paw. They got my Valentine's Day card in the mail. Paw Paw put a letter to me in his mailbox and it's COMING!

I love you everybody...even Mom, Godmommy and Reece.

Good night!

Playing catch up







I know, I haven't blogged in a long time and soooo much has happened. I had a party with my family on Saturday. It was my pink, chocolate and red party.

My parents, Granny, Aunt Linda, Uncle Robert, Auntie, and Trey went to see my cousin Ebon's play. I cried because I wanted to go. :(

Sunday our family went to church and we each wore something red. I was a real good girl during church. I didn't talk or cry.

Sunday night my parents went on a date to The Palms and I cried again because I wanted to go with them again. :( Mommy is taking me on a date on Tuesday.

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

I need to catch up!

I know the last time I blogged was Sunday. I was so pooped from the big victory that I haven't had time to take a break and "chat". Okay here's a report of what I've been up to.

Sunday - we had sooooo much fun cheering the Saints to a victory. I even sung for all the party folks at my house. Amani will add later to my page. You can also see my new FAVORITE outfit my mommy bought me. I loved it so much I wore it Monday.

Monday - we're getting ready for the snow. Its suppose to snow but I really want my new bed so daddy and mommy are picking it up from the store tonight. Even if it snows I'm getting MY bed. I wore my favorite outfit AGAIN. :) Mommy and daddy laughed at me. I LOVE my skirt.

Tuesday - I have a new bed. Amani and I re-decorated our room. We still have our colors of pink, chocolate and fuschia but we went with the theme of DOTS! It is REALLY cute. Oh and it really snowed but it didn't last long. It just snowed hard enough for my sisters to stay home from school again. :)

Wednesday - I went to the library with Granny. I love hanging out with my Granny. Today cousin, Ebon, is making a commercial with daddy and Amani. I hope I can be in it too. Maybe I should go put on my favorite outfit again.

I'll blog later!

Love ya!

Ladies at the Library

This morning my Mommy took me to my Granny's before she went to work. I like to look outside her deck and watch the birds. We went to the library and I got a book about birds and Black History Month. Granny is getting me binoculars so we can watch the birds in her back yard.

I went to church with Granny, Brooke, Amani and Trey. I stayed with Granny and listened to Bishop. My sissy, Amani, went to children's church. We had a good time.

I helped mommy make chocolate chip cookies for daddy. I ate three. They were delicious. Guess what? My friend Breanna is getting baptized in three weeks. I will see her at church. She is my daddy and mommy Goddaughter. But Reece is not her brother he is my Godbrudder.

Night night...I love you...have a Terrific Thursday tomorrow.

Shrinking Snowman


Yesterday daddy and I made a shrinking snowman (see picture above). My sisters didn't have school today and we hung out. We get to hang out again tomorrow because school is canceled for Tuesday.

Mommy made me a sundae and I got to put the cherry on top! I think she made it for me because I made her a Valentine all by my self. I heart my Mommy!
Goodnight!

Donuts


This morning I woke up sick...I slept in to rest and make sure my tummy felt better. A lot of ice is on the road but daddy went out to get my pedialyte.


Later my daddy took me to make donuts. Not the kind to eat but with a car. It was too fun! Go to youtube.com and search for "Audi A6 shoveling snow Part 2" We went to the movies as a family but I fell asleep.


Daddy let me walk on the ice and I did not fall.

Playing outside in the snow!


I had soooooo much playing in the snow today. All the girls against the guys...Miss Lee, our down the street neighbor, helped me and mommy snow fight daddy and Mr. Roy. WE HAD FUN!! It was our snowball party.


It's SNOWING

Yeah...I woke up and told mommy "it's snowing." :)

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Me and Daddy had FUN!!!

Today I was supposed to go to the library with Granny but she was too tired. I hung out with daddy.

It was too cold to go outside so we stayed in the bonus room ALL day! My treat today was a fruit roll up...my fave.

Mommy had class so we didn't have our tea party - maybe tomorrow. Tomorrow is THURSDAY! I know my days of the week.

Have a GREAT night...

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

I had a super great day! This morning mommy and me saw a lot of turkeys in the front yard. It wasn't our yard. There were like a million turkeys in this man's yard and looked scarey. Mommy said she didn't like turkey and I asked if she liked ham?

I had fun with Granny, Daddy and Amani.

Mommy read Dr. Martin Luther King book to me again...he die but his words live on.

Amani was mad at me for spilling her tea in the bonus room. She wanted to fight. I told her to sleep with one eye open.

I broke daddy's vase and mommy told me to go to my room. I cried because I'm scared of the dark. Mommy told me to pray about it and I prayed while I cried. :(

But I still had a GREAT day!!!

Monday, January 25, 2010

My Mommy

I didn't get to play with my mommy today because she had class. She had to study and take a quiz. What is a quiz? She did really good she got 100. I'm so proud of mommy but I wanted to play. She reminded me we played really hard yesterday.

I love my family. I went to Granny's house today.

No one is coming over today. We had friends Friday and Saturday.

Mommy and Amani said I'm part of the It's a Secret Club. I can't tell anyone the secret. :)

I have to go and clean up my room with Amani. Good night and pray for all the little babies in Haiti and no more earthquakes (this is Jailyn's Mom: We're really worried about her intense questions about the earthquake so we let her talk about it freely. I asked her what did she want to do about the kids in Haiti and she said "pray for them and want to give them a house. I had a dream about Haiti and the earthquake and everyone is safe.")

Jailyn's Candyland World

I ate dinner and I ate cookies for dessert. Then I played with Tyler!! Daddy gave me a cookie and mommy said no so once I got the cookie I showed it to mommy.

I granted a wish to Uncle Maurice with my magic wand.

No more nightmares

Last night I was really scared and daddy and mommy told me not to be. Then mommy asked "who is always near?" I told her God so she told me to talk to Him about it. This morning I told mommy "I had NO nightmares because I talked to God...I prayed and they went away"

My Uncle Maurice from Indianapolis is here and we are going to play Candyland.

I don't like Burger King burgers they have seeds on them.

Friday, January 22, 2010

What a day!

Last night my Aunt Linda braided my hair and I really like it. Today my Granny and Brookey came over and I gave them a big hug. But told Brookey "don't mess up my hair".

Granny and I talked about the earthquake and she told me it won't come here. I watched the singers on tv. Mommy said we give money to the singers and they will give it to the children in Haiti. I saw pictures of the children. It was sad.

I help my sissie clean the bonus room...I did a great job. So Mommy let me help her make pizza. Then Paw Paw called and we had fun on the phone. I love my Paw Paw and Grandma. I want to see them.

My Uncle Maurice is coming tonight and my cousin Tyler will be here tomorrow...I can't wait to see her. I'm so lucky!

I'm sleepy now ... good night! Have a great Saturday!

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Today my Aunt Linda braided my hair ... and it looks great!

The Storm is Coming

I saw lighting in the sky today. The earthquake is coming really quick. I called my mommy and told her that the storm is coming. She said she would be very careful.

I watched GForce again and I love the movie. My favorite song is "dontcha wish your girlfriend was hot like me. Dontcha wish your girlfriend was fun like me...DONTCHA"

I beat up d-d-d-d-daddy again in play fighting. He got mad at me. Then we gave Remi a bath.

I was a little mad at mommy because she braided my bangs. Auntie said they were really bang bangs because they were poofy.

I love all my cousins and Reece.

Have a great night!

Chuck E Cheeses and Dr. Martin Luther King Day

Daddy and mommy worked today so I hung out with sissie Ambria, Brooke and Granny. Kaykay spent the night but Amani went to her house today. Trey was at his friend's Hugo house and Ebon did not have class.

Granny took us to Chuck E Cheeses and I played and played. I didn't eat much pizza but I had a lot of tickets. We went to Granny's favorite store, WalMart. She bought me my favorite, chicken wings and grapes.

I love God and Reece.

Granny asked me if I liked my books from the library. I like the bed time stories. I like the book on earthquakes. I told Granny an earthquake is coming to Nashville because of all the cracks on the sidewalk. She asked if I liked the book on Dr. Martin Luther King. I asked is that the book with the man on it? and Granny said "yes, that's Dr. Martin Luther King" and I told her 'It was borrrrrrring.' Granny told me all about Dr. Martin Luther King and mommy is going to read the book to me again.

I'm sleepy and I'm going night night.

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Yesterday I did not blog because I was mad at mommy. Friday night she went skating with my Auntie, Brookey and Trey, and my sissies...I did not go. :( She said it was for teens only. So I was too mad to let her type.

Today we talk. We have a date on Tuesday.

Friday, January 15, 2010

I love Sonics

My daddy and I went to Sonic for sausage, egg and cheese toaster. I love those!!! They were really great. So great I called my mommy. As in I DIALED my mommy's work phone and told her to come home.

She'll be home after 5pm.

Super Hero Jailyn



I'm a super hero. I did all of my homework today. I played with Amani. People were in the sink hole and I got them out (we think she's talking about Haiti). I took a nap and when I woke up I saw a comet and that made me a super hero. I want apples and bananas but no oranges.

I ate ALL of my dinner so I had strawberry cake with my cold milk. I ate it all by myself.

I love Reece (see him asleep above). He's coming to my house to play when Paw Paw is here and then we go to Chuck E Cheese and then we take him back to his home...all the way down there (she points to the right).

Hmmm what is strange? okay okay let's try something else ... I love family 'cuz we are going to the zoo.

The end...good night.

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

What a day!

This morning I woke up with a bloody nose. Daddy fixed it right away. Next I had breakfast with my daddy. Then I went to my Granny's first and then I went to the library to put my book away and get more books. 3 books. Then Granny took me to the park and then I went to Wendy's and ate cheeseburger with no onions and pickles and fries and a sprite. When I got home I played with daddy. Dad...d.d.d. daddy (Jai's new song).

I watched cartoons on Cartoon Network of course; a C and a N. Then Disney and watched the movie The Wild with the animals. And now I'm blogging.

It is REALLY late. I stayed up late to help Mommy with her homework and I love her.

That's it. The End (Jai demanded that I put The End on here). Bye bye!

Paw Paw in ICU


I didn't get to talk to my Paw Paw tonight. Here's a family picture while he was in ICU and our last day in Memphis. We're going back to check on him and Grandma Barbara at the end of the month. Hopefully I can get my pancakes then.
I want a sleepover so I'm sleeping with my sister Ambria tonight.

Good night - I love you!

My Granny

Today I'm spending the morning with my Granny. I was so excited I woke up laughing. Daddy got me dressed and ironed my panties and tshirt so they were warm when I put them on (giggle). I told daddy "no cereal I'm having breakfast with my Granny." Miss Yvonne gave me a teddy bear that talks. I can talk to its hand and it will say what I said. So this morning I spoke to the bear's hand.

When Granny opened the door I couldn't hug her 'cuz I had my bear in one hand and my banana muffins in the other. So I dropped my muffins and pressed the bear hand and it said what I said (giggle) "Good morning Granny. I love you." I think I made Granny cry.

Like my mommy said this morning ... have a TERRIFIC TUESDAY!

Monday, January 11, 2010

Wow!

I just sent a message to my Godbrother and his mommy will read it to him. That is so neat! I hope he can spend the night 'cuz I love him so.

Today my mommy painted my toenails after her class. I wanted to paint her's but she said it was all about me tonight. I think she just didn't want me to paint her toes.

I saw my Aunt Linda and I saw Ebon twice today. The end! Now I will go and take my bath.

Manic Monday

Daddy and I took Remi for a walk after breakfast. I love my dog Remi she is soooo cute! She is getting big and she's a big girl like me. I told my mommy "I'm a big girl not a baby because I'm turning 5". I want a party at Chuck E Cheese again.

Today is my mommy's first day of school. I'm helping my daddy clean up so all mommy has to do is come straight home and get on her computer for her class. I told mommy I would help her with her homework.

I will call my PawPaw tonight...he was in the hospital and now he is home. I didn't like him in the hospital and am glad the doctors took care of him. I did puzzles in the room my daddy said is the family waiting room and I love puzzles. I missed PawPaw making me pancakes. Made me sad.

I have to go...hope you have a GREAT day!

A Raccoon

Oh my GOSH ... I just saw a raccoon in the street. My granny is visiting and I look out the window and saw a raccoon by my granny's car. Then it went across the street into the woods. Kinda scary!

I went to big people church today and fell asleep. It's not as if I don't like Bishop Walker or he's boring but I was really sleepy. I will definitely go to children's church next Sunday.

Yesterday I played in the snow with my daddy. We had a snowball fight...too much fun! It was really cold outside so we went in and had hot chocolate with mommy. I love snow!

Saturday, January 9, 2010

Welcome

Hi, my name is Jailyn and I'm 4 years old. My dad's name is Robert and my mom is Janine. My two older sisters are Ambria (16) and Amani (15). I have a lot of family and friends and I love them all. They make me very happy. I started this because my Mommy loves to tell stories of me and share little things I say and do so someone told her to have me start a blog. Now I don't really know how to type so I tell her what to type and since this is my first blog I'm telling her to say WELCOME TO MY WILD ADVENTURE!
