Good Morning Everyone and Welcome to the Saturday Morning Chat Group!

Good Morning Everyone! Welcome to the Sat Chat. It's going to be a short one today...we are visiting friends whose son Jacob is having a birthday party today. We need to be at their home about an hour away by noon. Eli is so excited! He loves to go to birthday parties.

I think I'm going to put out a last shout for the CARD AND ORNAMENT EXHANGES. If you would like to join in please e-mail me asap, I am going to e-mail all participants on Sunday so that they can get their cards and ornaments out.

Linda at 'Parker's Paradise' has a new Granddaughter who will be home from China soon, please visit her blog and leave your Congratulations. I am so happy for you and your family Linda!

Also, our dear friend Lala and Annslee should be home very soon with little Coby, their blog is 'Ladybugs and Dragonflies'.

What does it take to make 3 boys smile?....Christmas Card Bloopers

I kinda liked this one, but Tyler wasn't looking into the camera and Zach looks twisted.

Ok, is it just me...or does Zach actually look pregnant in this one? We laughed and laughed when we saw it.

This one was ok.

Tyler's looking away from the camera, Eli has his cheeser smile and Zach looks expecting again....
Yeah, look at that...Tyler looks good finally, but the other two are a total bust~

All in all we took well over 30 pictures and did get one good shot. You all will be seeing it in your Christmas cards :)

Have a Great Wednesday Everyone!

This morning is going to be crazy, I have to get Tyler in to the ortho at 8:10am and then get him to school and me to work. Hopefully the rest of the day will be pretty mellow. We should probably take Eli in to see Santa tonight so that I have some photos to send to you all in my Christmas cards!

Fun With Friends...Eli's Girls

On Sunday we went to the Children's Museum to meet some friends and have some fun. We met Katie and Ella from 'Living My Dream' and Josie from 'The Kenward Blog'. We had a fantastic time and Eli didn't want to go home.

Here is Eli in the triangle mirrors.

Katie is catching Josie at the bottom of the slide. Josie was a little hesitant at first to go down the slide, but Eli and Katie helped her.

The ball pit was a big hit!

Josie going down the slide all by herself. Looks like I got this picture with her eyes almost closed..I'm not a great photographer :)

Katie really having fun!

Ella in the sandbox.

I love this picture because it really shows a man and a woman. Eli's got the steering wheel and Katie's got the money!!!

Sign Up for the Christmas Ornament and Card Exchanges!

Hi there everyone! 16 ladies have signed up to participate in the card and ornament exchanges. Not everyone is participating in both, you can choose to participate in just one of the exchanges if you like.

I will be sending out the addresses on December 16th. For those of you in the card exchange, I will be sending out a list of addresses and you will need to send a card to everyone on the list. For those of you in the ornament exchange, I will send each participant one address and you will be sending your ornament to the person whose address you receive.

It is still not too late to sign up, so if you would like to participate, please send me an e-mail at with your name and address and which exchange you would like to be a part of or both.

Eli's Birthday Photos

Eli had a lot of fun on his birthday. He opened his presents pretty early in the morning and played with them non-stop until nap time.

Eli received quite a few super hero gifts which he loved, he has really made a change in the toys he enjoys and it is super heroes all the way! He received some Transformers, Superman and Batman toys that he would not put down.

He saw this laser gun at Crackerbarrel when we were there after driving home from Grandpa's house on Thanksgiving and loved it, so we bought and got it out of the store without him seeing it. Man is it loud, but he loves it!

Eli and Zachy.

Eli and Ty Ty.

The Transformer cake!

Taking in a deep breath to blow out the candles!

I told him to make a wish and gave him some examples of what a wish was and he chose to wish that his little sister would come home.
