My sisters Janet and Mollie, and me and Larry got together one day and took our kids to the zoo in Boise. They all loved it. In this picture they are waiting their turn to ride on the Merry Go Round which cost $1. They are all proud to show off their dollars. Little Whitney is in front, then from left to right there is Preston, Joshua, and Joseph.
The boys loved the zoo. It has been a couple of months and Joseph still talks about the lions, he makes sure to get a roar in every time that he says "lion". Joshua's favorite was the monkeys.

As I have said before, my boys love their super heros. For Halloween last year, Joshua really wanted to be Batman, but we couldn't find a Batman costume that fit him. So instead he go a Power Ranger costume and I made a black cape so that he could pretend that he was Batman. Since that time the Power Ranger costume has become a generic super hero costume. Basically, Joshua decides which super hero he wants to be and then he puts on the costume. Joseph on the other hand was a monkey for Halloween. At the time he was too little to really understand what was going on. However, now he wants to be a super hero too, so he puts on his monkey costume and he is SUPER MONKEY. So in this picture we have SUPER JOSH AND SUPER MONKEY JOS.
A few months ago we decided that we needed to get bunk beds for our boys. Mostly because I was tired of Joseph falling out of his toddler bed because it was too small. On the first day that Larry got the bed set up, both boys and their cousin Whitney had to get on top and play. Since then, Joseph has figured out how to climb up so that he can wake up his older brother in the mornings. Neither one of them can wait for the other one to wake up so they wake each other up. Then they hug and are so happy to see each other. Then, after about 20-30 minutes they are fighting, and so goes the the rest of the day. They are either loving each other or fighting.
I have really neglected my blog. I have been so busy since I started working that I haven't been able to keep up with anything. Since the last time that I added anything to my blog we found out that we are having another baby. We had the ultrasound a couple of weeks ago and found out that we are having another boy. The Lord must know more about me then I know about myself. I never thought that I could raise three boys and stay sane, but we are about to find out. I am really excited. Larry was shocked at first and it took the boys awhile to adjust to the idea of another brother. They were really hoping for a sister, especially Joshua. I told Josh that another brother would be really fun because they could play super heros together and when they get older they can go camping together. After that he decided that it would be ok to have another little brother. We are thinking of naming him Jared Nathan Green, but we haven't decided for sure yet. Our Green House is getting fuller and fuller and we love it. Baby Jared is due to arrive sometime around the end of Nov. or the first part of Dec.
