We're enjoying our time with Grandma and Grandpa. Last night, we had dinner with them and some of my other grandparents. Today, I spent most of the morning playing in the sand and dirt while Grandma and Grandpa worked in the yard. Then Ms. Jen called us, and we walked to the park to play with Ella a little bit before lunchtime. Mommy told me, "You're really dirty. You must have had a fun time." So, after lunch, I had my bath and my nap. The evening is sure to be full of more fun!
Here are some pictures from our visit with our old friends, Mr. Chad, Ms. Krista, Caleb, Katie, and Daniel. As you can see from the lack of pictures, we spent most of our time visiting and playing. And I really didn't feel like smiling for a picture. I really am terrible at posing these days! (And I was also about to get a fever, but nobody knew that.) Despite the lack of picture-taking, we had a great time. Mommy thinks it's great to share time with old friends who know you well, even though she wished that time was a lot longer.
While I seem to be just fine now, I have some buddies who are not so fine. My good buddy Sam has pneumonia, and Ava has a touch of it, too. We wish we could take it away from them, but we'll pray that God does. Get well soon, buddies!
Just thought I'd write a quick post on how Jonathan is doing. He went to bed with a fever last night, and he slept...and slept...until I woke him around 10:20 this morning to go get checked (and he needed an adjustment.) He wasn't as feverish this morning, and he said he felt fine, but still wasn't quite himself. Mean mommy that I am, I decided that he still needed at least a short nap this afternoon since he's not 100%-even though he did sleep really late. So, he's sleeping (or at least resting.) I hope he feels much better by morning, because Jeff's parents are coming for a big visit!
Micah's surgery went well yesterday-thank you for praying for him, and you can check his blog to read more.
We have friends visiting all the way from Canada tomorrow! My buddies, Caleb, Katie, and Daniel, and their mommy and daddy, Ms. Krista and Mr. Chad, are nearby visiting Ms. Krista's family, so they're going to visit us, too. I can't wait to have some big buddies visit. Between getting new glasses and seeing old friends, tomorrow is going to be a fun, busy day!
This week, Daddy was out of town on business. He left before 4 Monday morning, which is before I woke up. We really missed him! We tried to do lots of fun things while he was gone, but we still wished he was here. The best thing we did while Daddy was gone was have dinner and playtime with Ella. I had so much fun with her! And, I think the mommies enjoyed talking, too.
Tonight, we did something really fun. We went out for burgers with Ella and her family. We ate yummy food, goofed around, and stayed up past our bedtime. Ms. Jen is so smart that she always brings a special little backpack to restaurants so that Ella has fun things to play with. Maybe my mom will do that someday. I hear that I get to see Ella again this coming week, and I'm very happy about that!
If you have a few moments today and in the next few days, take a peek at Rocks in My Dryer. The author of that blog is on a trip to Africa with Compassion International and is blogging as she goes. Saying, "Enjoy!" isn't quite right, but I hope you have the chance to read it.
Yesterday was a great Saturday. After Daddy's long training run in the morning, we all got in the car for some family time. Since the weather was warm and gorgeous here, what did we do? We went to the snow!
I should tell you that we have dinosaurs sleeping in our bedrooms. I usually have to turn out the lights and close the doors and remind Mommy and Daddy, "Let's be quiet so the dinosaurs can sleep."
Yesterday, I had a great surprise in the mail from Uncle Dennis and Aunt Shari. They visit my blog every day, so this post is for them.
There were tornadoes in the South last night, and a lot of people were hurt and killed. My older friend, Carolyn, who goes to Union University, helped the other students be safe and barely got to safety herself before the tornado hit. Afterwards, they found out that there were students injured but no students died. Carolyn made it home to her family at 1:30 a.m. with her car and purse and the clothes on her back. Everything else is gone. Carolyn and her family are so special to us and we're so thankful she's OK. Not everyone else is OK, though, so we hope you'll pray for those affected in the South.
You may not have seen my room lately, so I thought I'd show you some pictures.
I decided to copy Ella's idea and put a slideshow on my blog. Mine is way down at the bottom. The pictures are the photoshoot Mommy and I did for Daddy for Christmas. (They are almost ready expire-we have to order by the 13th if we want any more, so please let Mommy know if you do!) Enjoy!
The day before yesterday, my eyes started producing some green gunk. Each time I woke up, my eyelids were stuck closed. As you probably guessed, I didn't like it. And it was gross. Grandpa thought it was probably conjunctivitis, but without the red eyes. He adjusted me and had me put apples on my eyes. (You might be wondering how I was persuaded to do this. One word: bribery. Now that I'm potty trained, I know all about bribery.)
Congratulations to my little buddy, Olivier, who became a big brother on Tuesday. His little sister, Chloe Michele, was born at 11:53 p.m. and was 20" long and 7 lbs., 4 oz. You can see pictures of Olivier and Chloe on their link down to the right. Congratulations, Olivier!
