We've been busy!

Hudson on the left - Henry on the right


So during the last two weeks my computer has been down, I've had pneumonia, Julius started school and we moved back to Boise. WHEW!

We made it and we are loving our new house. It's all on one level and much less chaotic. I didn't think I was going to survive - but with help from our friends and family we made it and I couldn't be happier. I will really miss our old ward... but I feel really good about our move.
I discovered that our neighboor three doors down has a son in Julius's class at school and that we go to the same church. They recruited several men to help us with our move AND she took my three big kids for a couple of hours while we got everything unloaded. What a sweetheart! Another great blessing is that Julius gets to ride the bus...YAY! That sure takes a lot of work off of my plate. He is really loving school and came home today and wrote nearly every lettter of the alphabet...each on a separate piece of paper!

The babies are getting big and smiling so much. I can't help but smile at their sweet little faces! I'll try to update some more real soon...

So SWEET!! We sure miss you and your beautiful family. I'm glad to hear everything is going well.

Oh, Mandy... (kinda like Barry Manilow)

I'm so glad you've got an instant, great, terrific, neighbor right off the bat.

The smoothe move... (no Ex-Lax similarities intended) Easy transition for Julius and no stairs to chase your brood.

Yeah, I'm glad we have our blogs!! Thanks for letting me love your babies, even the bigger ones!

It sounds like you have been a LOT busier than us! I can't believe you got pneumonia! I hope you are feeling better. What made you guys decide to move? I'm glad you love your new place though and your babies are getting SO big! Adorable!

Hope you are recovering ok with all this chaos!! Where in Boise did you move? You could have dropped your kids off at my place Mandy! We would have loved watching them for you!

Your twins are SO darn cute!! I can see why you love their little faces.

Hope you continue to get settled in.

I am so glad that you made it. It will be nice to have an easier morning. It is tough enough getting one kid ready for school without trying to get five out the door at the same time and in time for school. Happy Days!

Oh my cuteness!! I can't believe the twins look so big already. I feel so bad for not getting over to see them. I guess I sort of thought they might hold off growing till I came over. :) Can't wait to see you on Friday!
