Eli's Words

I have a few new favorites.....

"Jack-O-Later" = Jack 'o Lantern

"Sweeter Tots" = Sweet Tarts

"Engine Turtle" = Ninja Turtle
This one was SO cute....Eli was very serious and said, "Mommy, Isaac is going to be a engine turtle for Halloween".

I LOVE my little Eli!!!! : )

A New Favorite

I don't do this often, but occasionally I find a website that is worth sharing. I love this site! I feel like I always make the same things over and over for supper and this website is helping me change that!'re not going to find ANYTHING healthy on this site, but I just modify the recipes to make them more healthy. Enjoy!

Tonight was Bible Costume Night at AWANAs. Eli and I were the fruits of the Spirit. : ) We had so much fun making our fruit this past week.

Random Pictures

I just can't find the time to blog!!! Chase goes crazy when I sit at the computer, so my blog time is very limited these days. Some day I will get back to blogging more often! : )

Chase loves bananas!!
New discoveries everyday....some good....some not so good! : )

One of Eli's favorite things to do is arts and crafts. I think we've tried every project in the October edition of Family Fun magazine. If you have children, you should get this magazine. It is SUPER cheap (I think a year subscription is less than $10) and has so many fun activities. Eli is painting egg cartons which later became spiders.
Chase loves carrying around a baby doll. It is so sweet to watch him hug the baby. Although the hug is usually followed by a toss across the room.

Eli has discovered a new favorite...candy corn! He crawled up on the counter and raided the candy corn jar recently. Every night when we pray, Eli says "Thank you Jesus for candy corn".

First Trip to the Dentist

No pictures for this post, but Eli recently visited the dentist for the very first time. I told him all about the dentist and we had been practicing for weeks, but I never knew it would go so well!!! I was amazed and so proud of my little Eli. He sat in the chair and did exactly what they told him and did not make a peep. Actually, he opened his mouth as big as he could the second he sat in the chair. It was so cute! The sweet hygienist told him that he didn't have to open quite yet. ; )

We went to a children's dentist near our home and they were wonderful. They let Eli explore all the tools before they used them, touched his hand with the tools before they put them in his mouth and they even let Eli hold the tool that sucks all the water out of the mouth. It could not have been any easier.

Eli's teeth look great! No bug houses (aka cavities)!!

Another Year Older

I celebrated a birthday recently. Although when you are getting closer and closer to 40, I don't know if you call it celebrating! ; ) Anyway, my Mom made me a yummy German Chocolate Cake (my favorite) and as always, Eli performed a solo of "Happy Birthday". I love it when he sings that song to me! : )

I love this picture of Eli!

You're Getting Sleepy!

Chase recently fell asleep in his highchair while eating lunch. I think every kid has done this, but it is still so funny to watch the process! : )

Plano Balloon Festival

We visited the Plano Balloon Festival for the first time. We had a great time (although it was pretty hot!) and Eli and Chase enjoyed watching the balloons go up in the air.

This was our favorite balloon. Unfortunately, it never turned around to let us get a good view of it.

Good News!

Chase's lungs are clear!!!!!! WooHoo! Doctor thinks he is finally on the mend! Yay! Hopefully he will be completely better sometime next week and we can get out of this house!! We've gone to Target and the Dr Office, but other than that, we've been here for two weeks. It's been nice, but I am ready to see friends, go to church, etc.

Thanks for praying for Chase!

Prayers for Chase, please!

We would appreciate your prayers for Chase. He has had a cold or something for 13 days now and it is not getting better. We've been to the doctor 4 times and will be going back tomorrow. We will most likely get a chest x-ray tomorrow. Please pray that the x-ray is clear and that this goes away very soon!! Thank You!!!!
