New Pictures

Alli is getting better at sitting up, but seconds after this was shot, she toppled over! It amazes me that the girl is ALWAYS smiling, but the second you put a camera in her face, she gets very serious. I'm sure one day she'll figure out how to be a ham!

New Year's Eve at Grandma and Grandpa's house in MN. Just home from church and serious once again!
You'd think I bought Elijah the IPod as much as he wants to listen to it. Don't worry, the volume is very low! His favorite song to listen to is Veggie Tales singing "Joshua fought the battle of Jericho." When he asks to listen to "Jericho" is sounds strangely like "Cherry Coke."

Elijah is playing in the shell of what will become his toybox.

That is funny about the serious face. My younger son was very serious in front of the camera for 6 years, but recently he loves the camera and has a big grin every time.

My younger son also liked to listen to Veggies Tales songs when he was younger and would wear earphones in the van because my older son didn't care for it anymore. This caused my younger son to reply, "When I get older, I'm going to hate this music!" And he was totally serious. :)

On further reflection, Alli looks just like YOU! She's a dolly!
