Friday Morning Playgroup

Twice a month Adilene's therapists come out the house to work with her.  The program she is involved in is great and it has helped her so much.  About 6 months ago a playgroup was started through the program and it is held every Friday.  I was very excited because it meant that Blaiden could go somewhere and get some energy out.  It turns out he was just as excited as I was that we started going.  Adilene also has a pretty good time now that she is more mobile.  Each week there is a different theme and all kinds of things for kids to do.  The age range is 0 to 5 years old although most kids are 2 to 3 years old so Blaiden has tons of friends.

I have learned that Blaiden's favorite thing to do is glue.  He always goes for that craft first.  Lately there has been a snack at the end and it usually involves cookies.  Blaiden is trilled and is usually the first one sitting in his chair so he can get his snack.  Here are just a few pictures that I have taken at playgroup.

Entryway Updated

It looks like I have neglected this little blog this past month.  Lets hope December is a lot better.

Way back in October it was a nice weekend and I got the bug to update our entryway.  The outside of our house was needing a little help, the bushes were overtaking the garden beds and they house was looking dirty.  So with a little help from Blaiden and Adilene watching from her chair I got to work.  It took a total of about 3 days but I think it turned out great!  We got new lights (I let Fred hang those because I didn't want to chance getting shocked), new mailbox, painted the steps, trimmed all the bushes, and I got to make a new number sign I had found on pinterest and wanted to do for months.

I am not one of those professional bloggers that takes the most amazing before and after shots.  I usually forget the before and so its more of a middle and after, and they are never from the same place so you can't get the full affect but I love how it all turned out.
