So my wonderful mother comes over a couple of times a week after work to help Beau do homework....It helps not because I cant but because if I am home, I can then start dinner, layout clothes for next morning, get every ones bags packed up, start laundry or...you know...just be the mom....and when I'm not there, it helps Donna do all the things I would be doing! lol... So this week my mom could only come once, plus we had a week night jumping party and, I worked a couple of night shifts, so TODAY against his will, Beau did all his weekly homework plus his January family project! (gotta love that once a month we get an EXTRA project, since I believe all homework is a family project)!! This month it was to build a snow man! Beau just loves to be in my craft room so the monthly projects are usually his FAVORITE cause it means he can look for supplies in my craft room......so without further delay......HERE IS FROSTY....

The RAT Pack!

So my boys have pretty much always gotten along great with the Hayne boys....but since we have been up there visiting more and spend so much time at the Hayne House, AND CUZ THE KNOW WERE MOVING...... These boys are now the BEST OF FRIENDS!! Beau looks up to Mason like NO OTHER, and derek and Landon are like 2 peas in a pod! The are all 4, SUPER OUTDOORSY, they all love to be outside, and they almost never have to even be scolded when they are all together!! AND 4 BOYS RUNNING AROUND IS ALOT!! (THEY DO MAKE A TON OF NOISE) BUT ITS ALL IN FUN!!! laughter, gigglying, sneaking around, shooting, running, sledding, they keep each other so happy!

Reasons we LOVE Colorado!

1. The Great Out Doors!

2. You get to SEE wild life! ALL THE TIME!!!

3. The Hayne Fanily!! ( Huge Bonus )

4. $$$$ (this might be chads number
1, but this is my blog!)

5. Great schools
