Here we go

As I was getting the bathtub ready tonight, I hollered at Halle that it was time to get in the bathtub. She walked into the bathroom, looked me in my eyes and said "I can't hear you mommy...I'm playing." Then walked right back out and continued to play.

I can only imagine the adventure I am in for as she grows!

Wonder Lab

We took the kiddos to the Wonder Lab today, and it was a huge hit! We decided that they need to build something like this in Rexburg. All it is is a warehouse, with a couple of different science toys and play things for kids to play with! They also had an "itsy bitsy spider net" (according to Halle) that Halle and a friend got to climb up. She had no fear at all and climbed to the very top! It was a lot of fun, and of course Halle was more than worn out at the end of the day!


And if you look really close you will see a little boy getting eaten by a dinosaur!!!

Playing in the snow

We decided to go outside and play in the snow today...it was pretty warm..you know, 25 degrees. BBrrrr!!!

Bennett truly enjoyed playing in the snow

Halle has just recently found pockets...and that they keep your hands warm.

And of course dancing like a ballerina outside. Gotta love having a little girl!!

The Doodlebops

We had an eventful night on Friday night...yes, we went and saw the Doodlebops! We left Bennett at home with a babysitter and Dustin and I took Halle to see them up at the IU auditorium. Thanks to Dustin's work we got AMAZING seats. Yep, 3rd row! Halle loved every moment of it- she sang, danced, and of course there were a few tears at the end.

I am the cheesy one here...yes thankyou mom and dad for the braces...

Of course Dustin looks great. Of course.


And here is a video of the Doodlebops...if you look really carefully you can see Halle bouncing up and down on the right hand side. Sorry it is so dark!!

Building a fort




We built a fort yesterday...."hiding from the monsters" is what Halle thought we were doing. She loved it...and Bennett just loved watching Halle run around and hide.

Crazy Deals

Had to share this- Old Navy is having a FANTASTIC sale!! Most everything is about 75% off. We went today...and will be going back early tomorrow morning. After checking out I realized that I paid $3.50 for pajama sets... that is such a great deal!! They had tons of their Christmas stuff (anyone expecting??) and a lot of their winter stuff for kids. And also all of their womens stuff... I just can't describe all the wonderments that you can find (yes i just made up that word). The sale is going until the 14th but the sooner you get there the better stuff you are going to get.

A Night of Firsts

It was a monumental night for Bennett tonight. Full of lots of first time moments that we of course got lots of pics of.

First was the trying of Rice cereal. I am hoping that since I am "filling his tummy" now he will start to sleep through the night. He is sleeping from about 8-4ish then sleeping again till 7ish but I am eager for him to sleep from 8ish to 7ish without waking. He LOVES cereal! Which I knew he would...it is food...of course he will eat it.



Then we got out our Jumperoo (we had this with Halle) and he was nervous in it but did enjoy it. Halle was more eager to get in it, which was hard to explain to a 2 year old why she couldn't get in it too. (We didn't want to replace the jumperoo)!!!



AND the biggest new of all- Bennett got his first haircut!!! I was super nervous about it, but it turned out SO WELL!!! He looks like quite the gentleman now- I love it! Here are the before and after pics.
