Happy Birthday Haley and Ben

It is so surreal to me to see my baby brother and sister as parents. This past week I got to hang out with them. I found myself staring at Ben thinking, "he has a man body...like actual muscles and facial hair...when did that happen?" Haley has been a mom since she was born, but only recently had a baby girl. Last year, I called her just after she had Lilly. I remember I was on a walk, and couldn't help getting choked up. My little sister was a mommy, and I was so impressed that she did it without any medication...not that I don't think that is a little insane, but still very admirable. It is strange to seem them as parents, but amazing how good they are at it. Ben is always calm and collected but still a goof. So much like Dad. Haley is an amazing mom...just like we always knew she would be. She is one of my best friends and is someone I look up to so much....Ragnar, graduating from school, being patient (you know what I mean), overcoming so many obsticles.
I love you guys so much! Happy 25th!
oh....for all those who havn't seen this picture, its mud.

I stole the same picture from haley's blog....oh the good ole days of mud. I agree somehow ben and facial hair are still a confusing puzzle for my brain to put together.

It's awesome to see such good kids turn into fantastic adults. You Boyles are the best. Rob called the other day and talked to me about all those cute little Boyle midgets. He said if he never gets married he wants Ben to have a few extra kids and send them his way. :)

That's cute Trisdan. Hey I thought I'd check in on your blog. Did you know Shane and I moved to Las Cruces? Shane got an offer within the same company to be the manager in Las Cruces and we took it. Anyway, I hope things are going well for you guys. Thanks for having us over for dinner. I only wish I could have returned the favor but with you having a baby and my kids being sick off and on, I guess it wasn't meant to be. Hopefully we'll see you in Monticello sometime! :)
