I have been taking the kids to Story time at the library every week at 10am. They thoroughly enjoy it. They get 3 or 4 books read to them, based on a theme for that day, and then complete a craft project as well! Hayden and Ady have both taken a liking to it, so I think we will continue... also it gives us the opportunity to get enough books to read throughout the week, and return them for another set the next week!
We have also been going to playgroup at the YMCA. Not as enjoyable, but still good for the kids to get some interaction with others their age!
Today, we met with some new friends... Sarah and Megan, and their kids (they each have a boy and a girl as well) We had fun spending time with them and getting to know them better! We hope that we will be able to spend more time with them and enjoy their company...
With my previous experience in medical records and billing, I am excited at the opportunity of volunteering at the hospital Ben works at. Ben has talked to some of the great people there, and have found me a position in medical records, in which I can volunteer! I know I will enjoy it, and am ready for the experience it brings... I will keep you all up to date on how this pans out!!!

Tiffany, Darek, and Caylee came up to help us celebrate Ben's Birthday. We had a good time, just relaxing and letting the kids catch up on some playtime! We took the opportunity to explore the park in this new town! We all had fun
A timer photo of all of us... I think it turned out quite well (especially of all the kids, since there was no one to get and keep their attention during the whole ordeal!)

Hayden helping his Daddy open presents! I think all 3 year olds are obsessed with opening presents!
On a side note: Today i took the kids to Ben's work, while he was out for pizza with this co workers. I decorated his office door and left him a cake on his desk! He was quite amazed that I got this done in the little time I had, and I also got to meet a lot of nice people there as well! I think we surprised him!

On Thursday, we went to Playgroup at the YMCA. Hayden, once again enjoyed it... I think he was the oldest kid there, and kinda bossy, but isn't that how oldest children are? Ady was really clingy to me, and came down with a 102.2 fever that night. We found out the next morning that she has a double ear infection... no fun! She seems to be recovering just fine and is just about back to her normal self! Thank heaven for prescriptions!The other day I asked Hayden to get himself a fork for his lunch. When I had turned around to make sure he got settled for lunch, i found that he had gotten the serving fork and was using it. He now wants to use it every time he eats! and he actually let me take his picture!We had a box in our kitchen, and it's Ady's favorite place to be!Little late on posting these pictures. This is my grandparents, Tiffany, and I when we came to Boise to visit!Twin sister, Tiffany, and I!
I have had a lot of stress lately in my life, and I came to the realization that doing puzzles helps me deal with it. (I know it's old person-ish, and weird, but it works for me) Here are 2 pictures of the 2 1000 piece ones i have accomplished lately. I am currently working on one that my grandma gave me for Christmas!
I thought this was funny. While Ben's mom, and Jack were here visiting, Jack took it upon himself to shovel out all of the water from out driveway. The snow was melting and there is no drain for the water to go to. Jack was out there for a few shoveling water. Needless to say, the water is still there, and I don't think it will be going anywhere soon!
