If you know anyone that would like to do HAB work with Nathan we currently have an opening for Monday afternoons and Wednesday afternoons. Because both Chad and I work with the youth in our ward Wednesday nights would be until 9 p.m and it would be with all three kids from 6-9.

We currently work with AZA United for our HAB hours, so you would need to go through them (feel free to look at their website) and it would also require you to take some courses through AZA.

Let me know if you are interested. We are currently interviewing people.

New Tricks

Yesterday Alison stood on her own (several times) for more than 15 seconds. I'm counting that as standing up. Wouldnt you agree?

and today she started clapping on her own. She is mesmerized by clapping - its so funny.

Last night during Family Home Evening I was playing "Called to Serve" while Nathan laid on Chad. When the song was over Nathan said "I love that song". It was adorable. Even more so because he doesnt show much interest in music. For the rest of our lesson he was humming the song.

We made it. We hit the ten year mark last Tuesday and we have a fun night to celebrate. We went and checked out St Frances restaurant in Phoenix (I tried to call you Maren :) ) and then we enjoyed the Diamondbacks game. We didnt win, but we had great seats and we enjoyed being so close and watching the people around us. The restaurant was fantastic and I would go back anytime. Highly recommended. Good, fresh food.
As far as presents go - Chad got a new grill. Highly romantic right? and I got a band to match my wedding ring. Love it. It matches my ring perfectly.
So how did we make it ten years? Love, perserverance, selflessness, laughter, friendship, and faith.

Happy 4th!

Spiderman is patriotic right? This is what he wanted to wear and I wasnt about to take on that battle. At least it is red and blue

I've been saving this little outfit for a few months now. Would you believe that I found the onesie and the tutu at Once Upon a Child for $3.50?!
