Kaden and his dinosaurs

Kaden LOVES dinosaurs. And, he knows a lot of them, and a lot about them! He is consantly drawing them, reading about them, playing with them, or quizzing us about them. He'll stay up long after Ky has fallen asleep with his "Dinosaur Encyclopedia", learning more things about them. Or, he'll yell out from his bed, "Mom! What's a dinosaur that starts with 'E' and ends with 'S'?" If I don't know it, I'll make a few guesses then he'll yell, "Give up???" Then he'll tell me the answer. In this picture, he made a T-Rex from his new lego game.

Surprise, Anna!!!!

A few days after Christmas, we decided to make a surprise visit to see Anna in Cedar City. All my sisters, plus my Mom and Dad all made the three and a half hour trek in my mini van. We made a few caffeine and potty stops, and when we got there, we started singing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas". Anna came to the door bawling, and we all gathered around her with hugs and more tears. We had a few rooms reserved at a hotel, and we did some swimming, chatting, laughing, eating, and playing games.

Twins' Birthday!!

How did my babies get to be this old?? Am I that old? Hmmm.... Anyway, the boys' birthday was on a Sunday, so we took them on Saturday to the Living Planet Aquarium after meeting Grammy and Grampy Hofheins and Aunt Ali for lunch at Burger King (their choice...) On Sunday, we went to Grandma and Grandpa Thomas' for their birthday dinner.
