This is so sweet!
I love that my boys love to read and that Aaron reads with them!
Of course, they are usually books about trucks!

This one makes me smile. I didn't get a great picture, but you can see Cole looking at Aaron smiling!
And...pointing! Cole LOVES books just as much as Eli does!

I guess the teacher in my loves that they love books! They're so fun to read with too!

Cole was not such a fan of the cake!
We did these same pictures of Eli...he had it ALL over himself!
He LOVED it!
Cole...not so much!
We had to force him into it...then he threw up!
Yeah, it was nice! Meg was gracious enough to not take pictures of that part!
They are 2 very different boys, but we love them both with all our hearts!
We did get a few smiles out of him!
Most were before he forced him touching the cake!

Oh...this face!

Seriously, Eli??

I didn't realize getting family pictures would be this hard!

Eli has this AWFUL fake smile.
He's trying to be "natural" but it's not working for him!
Finally...that beautiful smile!

We did get some good ones! I guess this is our life...:)

I may buy some of these with the bad faces to show him later in life!

Thanks, Meg for taking these! We love them!

We knew it was going to happen...

It was only a matter of time before this happened:

Eli loves his John Deere tractor and now, so does Cole!!

You can hear how excited Cole was and I was so proud of Eli for sharing his tractor!

I'm so excited for these two to play together as they grow up!

A big day!!

It was a big day our house today! Our little man went off to preschool!
He did great!
I think I had a harder time than he did!

Outside the preschool: Apple A Day!

Eli with his awesome teacher, Ms. Karri! (He was too interested in the kid behind us!)
Finding his hook: Apple #6

Such a big boy!

I was so proud of Eli! He did perfect!

Once he hung his backpack, he could go play. That was the end of me! He gave me a kiss and hug and said, "Bye, Mom! See ya later!"

My eyes filled up with tears and I headed out the door.

I was lucky enough to take him today and pick him up! He had a GREAT day! He could tell me a lot of things that happened. Who knows how much really did, but I LOVED it!!
