We went to the ICE! exhibit at the Gaylord Texan yesterday. What a great time. That hotel is just amazing and the ice sculptures were beautiful! It was very cold, but Eli and Chase didn't seem to mind at all. Chase actually fell asleep. We weren't sure if he was asleep or frozen. ; )

Hunter was showing Eli how to peel shrimp and crab....Eli was a little unsure at first, but once he tasted the shrimp, he loved it!

In our sub-zero coats...ready to go into the exhibit.

Studying the Toys

I recently found Eli and Chase studying the Target ad.....toy section, of course. : )

O Christmas Tree

Hunter and Eli picked out our tree this year and it is one of the prettiest that we have ever had!! We've really enjoyed it and Chase has not really bothered it....he just likes to look at it.

Goodbye, Paci!

It is a big week in the Henley house. Eli (yes, my almost 4 year old, Eli) has finally given up his paci. And, the best part is that it was SO easy. I guess it's another one of those things that just happens when the child is ready. About 4 or 5 nights ago, Eli's lips/face were really chapped. I put some medicine on his lips and said that he shouldn't sleep with his paci so that his lips would heal during the night. He agreed with ease and the rest is history. We are on day 4 or 5 and he hasn't even asked for a paci. We haven't mentioned it to him or made a big deal about him not using it. I think Hunter and I are both scared to bring it up. : )

My sweet boy is growing up! I am very proud of him.
