The Hunger Games

So, I finally gave in and bought The Hunger Games. I started it on Saturday night with Cody. My intention was to read the whole book with him, but since he had to leave I kept reading. =)  I finished it Sunday afternoon. It was page turner to say the least. Cody had read up to chapter three with me and then I was reading it and then he didn't have time...until he got sick yesterday. He read the whole book in one day. He surprised me and now we are very excited to see the movie. I am glad that I was able to read the book before opening night. Books are almost always better! Now I have to decide if I want to read the next two books. I have been pleasantly surprised by this popular novel, and it is the second book this year that I have read  by recommendation that I was unsure about.  The first was The Help, and boy was that a good one too. Anyways, reading is the best! Nothing will ever beat our own imagination and interaction with a book...in my opinion!

 If you have not read The Hunger Games or The Help, it is time to crack open these books!
Enjoy all you Peeta and Katniss lovers!

Jane's First Birthday! Happy Birthday Cody!

Jane with one of her new toys! Thanks Cox family!

Jane and her friends





Jane had a great birthday! She loved her frosting and having her little friends over to play. She is an energetic, loving little girl. I am so thankful for her! We are also grateful for the great friends that we have here.

This weekend my mom, brother--Jamie, and sister--Joanie came to visit as well and we really enjoyed having them. We hiked Menan Butte and actually made it to the top. We had a yummy dinner and just enjoyed having family around. I am thankful they made the trip!

Cody turned 28 years old today. I am lucky to be able to celebrate my two favorite people this month. I am a better person because of my husband.

Enjoy your Sunday.
