The Challenge - Day 1

Okay, so I saw this on a friend of a friend of a friends blog. Yes, I admit, I'm a stalker. Anywho . . . thought this was a fun "challenge" and decided to do it myself. The challenge is to post a picture every day for 30 days. So keep coming back to see new pictures.

Day 1

Marlee's been sick for a almost a week now. She has had a horrible allergic reaction to a virus. So every few hours her skin breaks out in this horrible rash all over her body. Don't worry though, it doesn't bother her. It itches just a little bit, but mostly it just looks awful!! Poor thing. She's only broken out once today, so hopefully she's just about over it.

I'm not quite sure how I feel about these . . .

I saw them in Target the other day.
Made me gag.
Then I saw that they were button fly too.
Yes, I did dry heave!

A Picture . . .

They say a picture is worth a thousand words . . .

Noah did this almost everyday last week. This particular bump is from RUNNING into the piano!

Elijah is growing up waaaayyyy too fast!! He now has 2 teeth, with number three on the way. He crawls (mostly the army way). And he can pull himself up to stand and "cruise" around holding onto furniture and people. He loves being mobile.

Marlee LOVES school. Her favorite part? "Playing". She's learning to spell. Now Nathan and I need to come up with a new system of talking in front of her. Spelling is no longer going to be secretive.And I just love this photo!!

Marlee, Noah, Vance, and Elijah

First Day of School!!

Marlee started school on Tuesday (I know, I know, super late on the posting) She was so excited she could hardly stand it. Waiting around all morning was torture for her. We all walked her to school (the boys are jealous everyday that they don't get to go yet). She had no problem leaving our side and getting in line with her class at the flagpole. It was so fun and exciting for her that I couldn't be sad at all. Well, maybe I should say "cry". I didn't cry, but I was a little sad that my little girl is all grown up. After her first day she said, "Mom, we get to play EVERYDAY! It's like a party!" She's hooked.

We had a special dinner that night for her. We went out to eat, and she got to choose the resturant. Any resturant! So, she chose Village Inn. She loves that they make a face on the pancakes with the bacon and blueberries.
We have a video of her coming out after school, but I'm having difficulties loading it. I'll try again tomorrow morning.

Coming Soon . . .

I promise to post mucho today. We've had quite the week!! Nathan came home from New Zealand. AND Marlee started school. It's just been a bit crazy this week (when isn't it?!) enjoying Nathan being home, getting into a school schedule, starting Activity Days again, and Elijah and me being sick on top of it all. Of course. So, I've put the blog posts off. Sorry. But, after Nathan gets home today from work (football season), I will get some pics, reviews, and posts up. PROMISE!! Till then, much love . . .
