Our 18 month old boys!!

When did our sweet little babies suddenly become 1 1/2?!?! The boys are growing by leaps and bounds and amaze me every day with their new vocabulary, ability to communicate their needs and wants, and they even play fetch with Nestle...not that the ball goes very far but it's the effort that counts...

Lights, Camera, Action....Take 3 (The Before)

I just realized it has been a month since I've updated our blog!! I had written several posts but didn't get around to adding the pictures...so here come the massive updates...

Another busy day in the Haden household!! A few months ago I submitted our picture and story for a commercial that Chase bank will be airing on HGTV. They were looking for a family with a "story to tell" and we definitely have just that with our move to North Carolina, Jared's surgery, the birth of the boys, and our move to Atlanta. It has definitely been a whirlwind the past 4 years! I honestly didn't think that we would get the makeover, but we did! They decided to make over the boys bedroom and turn their nursery into a "toddler room" with toddler beds, bookcases, etc.

It has been a fun and exciting process as the designer has sent us links, our design plan, etc. and today was our "before" shooting of the boys room. To have your house turn into a "set" is an odd experience as they set up all of the lights, camera equipment, etc. but it was definitely a fun one at the same time. I took some pictures below and we will shoot the "reveal" shoot next month (October) and the commercial will likely begin airing some time in November. I'll make sure to post a link when that happens!

Slide climbing

Coleman and Carter amaze me everyday with the new things they can do! Last weekend Jared and I took them to a playground and they LOVED going up and down the slide...of course they would rather climb up the slide part instead of the stairs but who doesn't?! Here they are yesterday afternoon...
