Great book!!!

We go to the library almost every Wednesday for story time. Sometimes afterwards I'll let the boys pick out some books. It's so much work though to keep special attention of these borrowed books so that they are not destroyed during their time in the Hasleton's home. So I try to avoid it by leaving the library right away. 

But this week the boys pulled a ton of books. I didn't even look at them before we checked them out. There are some about Hanukah, spiders, some others that don't even look interesting. BUT, I have just read the best kids book EVER!!!! It is called "Mars needs Moms" by Berkeley Breathed. It made me laugh, cry, & feel good about my mommyhood. 

I'm glad I didn't try to sensor the books this week. It allowed one of the boys to pick a book especially for me!! I'm sure an angel was helping guide those little fingers. I recommend this read to all moms!!

Yeah for good weather!!

Thank goodness for good weather. We have been so excited for the time when we can tell the boys to go outside & play!!! They stay outside for at least 45 min. It doesn't sound like much, but it's so nice to have the house to ourselves!!

The tree trunk is their main place of play. Nathan can climb on top, & there are some good looking holes around the base. Maybe after a few years, they will have dug the whole thing up & we won't have to pay for a grinder.

Now, if I can just stop being a paranoid mom & stop checking on them every 2 minutes.

Easter Video

The boys got to do 4 Easter egg hunts this year. VSP, Capitol Christian Center, My parentals, & the Hasleton's. They had it down at the end. My favorite part is when Grant picks up the egg, thinks nothing is in it, & throws it back down. Why p/u the egg if no candy is in it????? 

By the way, I had rice crispy nests for breakfast the next morning. There were none left afterwards either!!!
