Easter Eggs!

So we waited til the last minute to dye Easter eggs!

We decided to dye them Saturday afternoon!

Cole had just woken up from his nap, so he's a little out of it!

Eli did GREAT!

Cole got glasses a week ago.

Poor boy got my bad eyes!

We noticed a few months ago that he was having a lazy eye.

I mentioned it to our pediatrician and he sent us to a pediatric optometrist.

I was hoping that I wasn't right. That maybe I was just imagining things!

Unfortunetly, I was right! It's very slight and he was impressed that I noticed it already.

But, it's a good thing I did. Hopefully the glasses will correct things and he won't have to have surgery like I did.

He does AWESOME with them! He rarely takes them off. I think it's usually when he has smudges on them.
I could not be more proud of this little guy!
He's far exceeded my expectations with them!
He's been such a trooper!

And, how adorable is he?? Such a sweetie!!

I hope this NEVER happens!!

Our friend, Derek, works for the Police Dept. He also works for Aaron with the guttering business. The other day he stopped by and this is what happened!

Eli got arrested! (Notice one brother is arrested and the other one is holding a gun?!)

Put in the police car.

Yes...what one brother does, so must the other!

They had fun. We did talk to Eli and tell him that it's fun now to sit in a police car, but how serious it can be when he's older!

When Derek left he turned on the lights and sirens. I'm sure our neighbors were wondering what was going on! That better be the last tme I see both of my sons in the back of a police car!

I am so ready for this...


I caved!

The ice cream truck stopped right infront of our house today.

Both boys were outside and it was HOT!

So, they got popsicles!

Eli was very neat and clean with his!

Cole...well, you can see how that went!

We then got water guns out and played for a while.

It was a fun afternoon to come home to after work!!

I am so excited for this summer and spending more time with my boys!

Come on summer!!!!!!!!

Since we had a birthday party with Eli's friends at the fire station, we decided to keep things low key with the Grandparents! Good thing too, since Eli was running a fever.

His favorite things: soccer, Transformers, Power Rangers and Spiderman!

We enrolled Eli in Newton United for instructional soccer. So we got him the things he needed: a water bottle, shin guards, shorts and ball!

Happy Birthday, Eli! We love you!

We felt so bad for you that you had a fever on your birthday (and 3 more days after that!)

birthday boy

Four years ago Aaron and I were blessed to become parents for the first time!

I can't believe our baby is turning 4 today!

Eli is one of the best blessings we could have ever asked for!

He LOVES to play outside!

He has such an imagination! He can play by himself for hours! I love listening to him play!

He loves his baby brother and usually so good to him!

He has a kind heart and a loving spirit!

He is smart and loves to ask questions to find out more!

He loves to spend time with his grandparents and is completely spoiled by all of them!

He is loved by so many and we are truly grateful for that!

Happy Birthday sweet boy! We love you so much!

Oh...these faces!!

Ever since Eli turned 3, it is almost impossible to get picture that truly captures his beautiful smile! It almost always looks like this:Every once in a while I can get one that looks like this:

So, what do you think his brother picks up on?
Yep! This:

Good thing they are so cute!

birthday party!

This year we decided to have Eli's party with just his friends!

He said; "Only boys can come Mom."

(Except Mom's...we were aloud!)

We had it at one of Eli's favorite places, the fire station!

It was a lot of fun! (Despite the look on Eli's face below!)

Spiderman came to the firestation!

After cupcakes, ice cream and openning presents we toured the station and headed outside to see the ladder truck!

It was so much fun to celebrate Eli's birthday this way!

I'm not sure that he realizes he hasn't actually had his birthday yet!!
