Ady having fun with the octopus play dough!
Second: While trying to return back to Boise on Christmas Eve we were in an awful car accident. We, are all doing alright! Ben had some tiny cuts from the broken glass, and a bruised elbow from hitting the window. I, on the other hand, believe that the plate of cookies I was carrying in my lap, hit me smack in the middle of the forehead... Other than that I was fine. The kids, didn't have a single scratch on them, and were just a little shaken by the fact of "flippin" as Hayden states it.
On a good note, we have enjoyed our stay in wonderful baker city thus far. People tend to be nicer, and we don't have a commute at all, wherever we go! The first few days we were here, we drove around town trying to get familiar with the area, and found some fun and delicious places to eat! My favorite, thus far, PAIZANO'S pizza! My favorite, even over good old guidos in Boise! If you ever come here, you better try it!
Above are my "car wreck cookies." Originally made for Christmas eve... they made it safe and sound through the wreckage, right to our mouths, after we got them out of the wrecked car...2 days later!
Our home, for now, seems to be coming together well! We have unpacked what we think is necessary and left the rest for the basement. Haven't done much decorating, but we will eventually get to it!
Please note, this picture was taken before the wreck of the envoy!
While Ben was at work today, I took advantage of the somewhat nice weather and headed outdoors with the kiddos.... We made it to our front yard, and no further, but it was fun! We shoveled the rest of the drive way in hopes that Ben would be able to get his car out tomorrow morning and not have to walk to work! After that, we attempted to make a small hill, and a snowman. Hayden thoroughly enjoyed it, while Ady would have rather been inside.
Ady would not get close to the snowman... She was quite afraid of it!Hayden sure thought it was cool~!Hayden pulling Ady on the sled...minus the snowHayden getting ready to go down the little hill, i had made for him, on the sled!

We have been trying to go out of our way for them, though. We have been Christmas light searching for a few nights, and have found some well done houses in our neighbor hood. Hayden and Ady both loving screaming out "Christmas Light" (or in Ady's Language "tis tis ights" ) So cute.
Tonight, we went to my Mom's ward Christmas party. Hayden sure enjoyed himself with all of the delicious treats they had laying about. Ady was kinda grumpy... and wanted nothing to do with Santa Claus. Overall, we had a good time!
Ady was ok, at first, but then her real side came out...

You can't really see it, but I painted a Christmas Tree on her shirt, which matches the fabric on her sleeves, and her skirt.
