It's been a pretty fun day. We got up this morning and started getting around because Chris and Haley Thompson and their kids were coming down. I had a christmas errand to run before they got here so I left around 11:?? to go to Family Christian bookstore to get a before Thanksgiving sale item for the kids. I got a DVD for $5. You can't pass up a deal like that. It will be for both kids, we have already bought a couple other Veggie Tales DVD's also on sale to put in their stockings. Then when I returned home, they were here. Chris and Dustin went to work on the brakes on our van and Haley and I sat around talking and then we played Skip-Bo. She said she didnt remember how to play but somehow she blew me away. We had a great time. She is great to hang out with. After the brakes were down Dustin and Chris took the van for a test drive. When they returned they started grilling hamburgers and hot dogs, while Haley and I ran to King Soopers to get chocolate chips to make cookies. I believe it is Emilee's recipe. They were oh so good. After dinner we all four played a game of Skip-Bo and guess who won? You got it, Haley! Stinking girl! After that they started packing up to go home. And now they are gone. I gave all three kiddos bathes for church tomorrow, gave them a snack and now they are in bed. And there is peace and quiet in the Hays house for the moment. I have been dieting all week, I have a tremendous amount of baby weight to loose. But let's just say there was no dieting today. I started out good, having a bagel for breakfast but after dinner all those warm, chocolate stringing cookies were the end of me. Hopefully I can get back on my diet tomorrow. Anyways thats about it for the Hays familys day. I will post some pretty cute and funny pics of the kids. The pic of Isaac is so funny. He came down stairs the other night and said he was a army guy. Dont you love the outsit? Crazt kid! And Aleah is trying to act all cute and innocent. And then there is a couple of Lillie. Ever since Stephen has been here and is in the army, Isaac is all about it even more now than he was before. Well goodnight!

Well our new family has arrived and we have been trying to help them get settled and all. We have spent quiet a bit of time with them and they are great. We have played games a few times and just hung out. Our new family by the way in case you dont know is Stephen Brown, his wife, Danielle, and their two boys, Connor and Jacob. I did clean house yesterday and today and Im sure probably again tomorrow. I did all my laundry but still have the ironing to do. I seem to put that part off. I hate it. This last Saturday Dustin's boss gave him tickets to the Air Force game so him, Isaac, and Stephen all went. That left Danielle, her tow boys, me, and my two girls so we let the kids play and we watched a chick flik. I had borrowed some girlie movies from Sis. Karen since the guys were going to be gone. After the movie we loaded up the kiddos and her and I went to eat chinese food and we just talked and had a great time. When we got home the boys were back early because Isaac and Stephen were cold. The guys were preparing to grill when we got back. Anyways! Isaac is starting to talk to say his s's sooo much better and is growing up so fast. He will be 5 yrs old next month. I have a 5 yr old!!! He is sooo much fun. He is all boy and enjoys dressing as a cowboy always. As for Aleah she is all girl. Her vocabulary for a 2 1/2 yr old blows me away. She says EVERYTHING!!! She has the best facial expressions ever, but I have been told she gets them honest. And last little miss Lillie, she is growing so fast. She is smiling soooo much and even starting to cooo(?) She is now 7 wks old and I just cant believe it. All the kiddos are doing good. Well I guess I better get some things done before bed. Goodnight all!

Heather, Aaron, andAshton came out the week after all my Arkansas family. And at the end of the week Derek and LeAnndra came out too. We had soooo much fun playing cards every night and hanging out. We did lots of fun stuff too of course. Let's see if I can remember some of the stuff we did. We went to the Zoo, garden of the Gods, Itz (which is a pizza and game place) lots of fun, Miramont Caslte, and Musashi's (a japanese steak house) for my birthday. It was sooo good! We had a really good visit and I miss them. Sorry to make this short but I have a little girl letting me know its feeding time. There are pics below of when they were all here. Enjoy!!!
