Told You...Random

The other day we spent some time coloring (and I spent some time playing with my new camera). Here are a few pics from our fun time.
This is Madison drawing a picture of the Incredible Hulk and Eli telling her that the Incredible Hulk needs underwear. And the finished product...
This is Lillie dancing; the pictures don't quite do it justice. She loves to turn circle and laugh until she falls down.

Since Madison got her cast off, we decided to go bowling to celebrate. The pictures aren't great, but we had so much fun!!

There will be lots of nothing posts, so, consider this fair warning. These were just a couple of other pictures that I liked.And after I took away the pacifier...

This is the only type of picture I could get of Eli....he insisted on having his toungue hanging out the entire afternoon. Crazy man.

Monkeyin' Around

For Valentine's Day my wonderful Hubby surprised me with a new camera. Today I had my first opportunity to play a little with normal photo subjects were a little to active, so I traded them in for a more dosile one. He did a great job!! I have so much to learn, but am excited to have some great friends that are in the same process and we all, by far, have the best teacher (you know who you are).

Show and Tell, Valentines and Mud

We had a busy, busy week. I had promised Madison that I would bring her hamster for show and tell. She looked so grown up telling her friends at school about Princess; they were so excited. I was so impressed with how well their class is run....Mrs. Metzler is awesome.
This is Delaney taking her turn petting comment/question time her comment as "He's so cute!"We also attended Eli's Valentine's Day party-it was lots of fun. We took Lillie with us and she got a taste of the Blue Puppy class for next year. It is hard to believe that she will be old enough to be in preschool!!! Eli continues to be the ladies man in his class. Two different mom's said that their little girls refer to Eli as "my boyfriend." When I ask him about it he just smiles.
Just another cute sister picture
As most of you know, we had lots of rain in the last couple of weeks. Our yard doesn't drain very well, so we have lot of mud for several days to play in after rainy days. Eli, of course, too
k full advantage of this. Here is in his standard outfit...underwear and a worn out pair of chucks.

Those of you who know Madison very well, know that she is saver. She gets a small allowance every week and never spends it. This week on a trip to the pet store with Dan she decided that she wanted to use her money to buy a hamster. SOOOO, without further ado, please welcome.....PRINCESS!
