Well, thought I'd just post a little of what's happening in the household lately. Both of my little guys now have two bottom teeth and are working on the top front ones now. They don't seem too cranky though, thank goodness.
Yesterday, after I got off work, we went to my brother in law's house for my niece's sweet sixteen birthday party. Laura, his wife, is the most awesome cook. She made beef and chicken tacos, lots and lots of them. they were so good. She makes terrific spanish rice, which Haley loves to eat. She won't eat my rice, but she loves Aunt Laura's. I can't blame her. Everything Laura makes is fantastic. She made chili verde this past Christmas. It was to die for!
Jason has started trying to take a few steps! Yay! He doesn't really try them on his own, but with some encouragement. It's so cute.
I was ironing some little shirts for my little guys to wear to church this morning. I started thinking about how in about 11 years I'll be ironing their white shirts so they can pass the sacrament. I love the thought of having them hold the priesthood. I think that was one of my first thoughts when I found out I was having boys--how cool to have the priesthood in our home. Jon does hold the Aaronic priesthood, but he's not active (more like, not really converted I should say), so I guess I don't think it's the same, (sigh) maybe some day.
I have to decide what to try to organize tomorrow. There's so much, I don't know where to start. If I look around the house right now, I get very discouraged, because the whole place is ransacked!!!
Sister Rasmussen called me this week. She wanted to know if she could take pictures of the boys with some new props she got. Of course, I said yes. Her photography is awesome. So, we scheduled an appointment for the 17th. I can't wait to see how it turns out. Hopefully Jason and Justin will cooperate.
I suppose I should be hitting the hay. The boys wake up every morning at 4:45 like clockwork. Last night, they even stayed up until 9:30, and still this morning--4:45!! Any suggestions on getting them to sleep in later? Or is this just one of those situations where I pick my battles?--Just be grateful to get them to sleep through the night, and go to bed a little earlier myself. I'm afraid that's probably the only solution. So, I'd best be off to bed.
