Watch Out, Here Comes Ellie!!

Ellie had her very first Belt Test last night. She is very young to be testing, but Sigung was so impressed with her that he felt she was ready. Ellie LOVES karate and does very well at it. Everyone at the test thought she was adorable. Duh!

The Time Has Come!!

Well, the day has finally arrived!! Parker lost his very first tooth! He was eating a grilled cheese sandwhich (on very dry bread, i might add) and he came running into our room telling us his tooth was gone. We asked where it was and he wasn't quite sure. So, with the tooth missing we concluded that he had swallowed it. Oops! What were we going to leave for the tooth fairy, you ask? I note from Parker, signed by one of his parents (can't have kids writing notes to the TF at random), and wait for the monetary deposit. I am proud to say that it worked. The TF accepted his note and he was compensated nicely for it. I personally feel that it is a little strange to have a son old enough to be loosing teeth. My, time goes by fast.

Ellie and Tay, which is which?

Just wanted to show pictures of Ellie and Taylor at 3 months. I for one think they look very similar.

Lizard update!

I am very proud to announce that the Lizard is free!! That's right while I was tucking Ellie into bed I lifted her pillow off the ground and there he was, hiding under it's fluffiness. Of course, I reacted and sent him under the bed. Parker, trying to be a hero, ran in and started to move the bed so I could get it. Well, this time I wanted to be prepared if he decided to run (the lizard that is). So we went and got the bucket from the garage. After much convincing, we got the lizard to come out. I place the bucket over him, slid a board underneath, and flipped it over. We took him outside and set him free. I can sleep easy knowing he is gone and I saved it's life. *sigh*

Taylor's blessing.

We blessed Taylor on Sunday. Though I sometimes don't understand the fuss that is created over the "blessing", I do admit that it is a special time. I love the idea that my child starts life off with not only a blessing from her Heavenly Father, but her earthly father as well. She looked so sweet in her dress of white. I am grateful for her and pray that she will be protected as she enters this world. I am also grateful to our family who supported us that day. It is always nice to get together.

Labor Day!!

On Labor Day we went to the new Brunswick bowling alley. It is HUGE. There is a full size arcade, Bar and Grill, pool tables, and lots of lanes. Being Labor day there was a 2 1/2 hour wait for a lane. Being the AWESOME parents that we are, we decided to wait the time. It was worth it. We had so much fun. I just love my cute bowling buddies.

I have a lizard loose in my house!!! I tried to save it's life and now he's in my house. How do I find a lizard in a basement? What do I do? Will I come across him in the middle of the night? I am in such a panic mode right now it's ridiculous. I can't believe this . . . . .
