We are blessed people. We have the family to prove it... We have been quite unbusy this week, with nothing really to do here in Baker City in the winter. This week, the kids and I ventured out to story time at the library. Hayden enjoyed it, although he talked through most of the story, telling everyone and anyone that would listen, about anything he could think of. I'm not surprised at the least because he is always either talking or making noises.... Life around here is never dull with Hayden around.

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!

I love your blog! I love seeing Hayden using the big fork and seeing Ady sitting in the box! This made my day today! I don't know what I would do without your blog!! Tell Jack that Dad and I did the smae thing out in front of our house. We moved the snow so the water could drain. Maybe that is what Jack was trying to do!!! LOL Now the snow i s all gone and the streets are dry. YEAH!!!!
I love you!
