This spinach drink is what we've been having for breakfast almost everyday since we've come out here. We got the idea from Ryan and Windy, although we have adapted it a little. We use 1 cup of frozen fruit. Our favorite is this Spectrum Blend from Costco, with peaches, strawberries, blueberries, pinapple, and honeydew. The 3 berry mix from costco is really good, too, if you don't mind the seeds. Then we add about 3/4 cup of any flavor yogurt, we use peach yogurt, and 3/4 cup orange juice, and about 2 cups of spinach. I just grab 2 big handfuls and throw it in. Blend it all up, and walah! It is really good and a great way to get a bunch of spinach into your daily diet. My girls love it and they drink it everyday too. Get this...Jared has lost 15 lbs since we moved!!! He's a hotty!

Happy Halloween!

We went to our ward halloween party and had a blast this year. Brianna and Sydney wanted to where the same costumes as last year. Hayden was Quasimodo and I was Esmerelda. We also had our friend Theresah, from our apartments, with us. Hayden looked hilarious! We got all sorts of laughs with him. He just hung out in my arms, just content to sit there with his hunchback shoulders. He loved his BillyBob teeth. I only put them in his mouth for pictures or when people wanted to see it because otherwise he druled everywhere and they eventually would fall out, but everytime I would put them in his mouth he would smile and start gumming them. He really looked pitiful, though. People didn't know whether to laugh or cry. We did Trunk or Treating and our ward really got into it. They had all decorated their cars. It was quite the spook alley. At the end, Jared and I laughed so hard we cried when someone gave Sydney the scare of her life (poor Sydney). There was a huge spider remote control toy that someone had walk up to Sydney and it scared her so bad!!! I really felt bad that she was so scared, and yes, I did comfort her, but Oh My Gosh, it was so funny!

Playin' at the Park

Here in Georgia, there are parks everywhere. We've been enjoying visiting different parks each week. They all have beautiful trails to walk, through forested areas or around lakes. The girls love trying to catch the squirrels along the trail, but just scaring them away. Hayden is chill, as always, just hanging out in his stroller. And then, of course, they spend a long time playing on the playground, too. We all get a bit of exercise, enjoy the scenery, and have fun playing. This is one of our favorite things about our new home in Georgia.
