Fire Station & Sunday Best

Eli and I visited a fire station with a group of our friends today. It was such a neat experience, and the kids were fascinated by it all. In the front of the fire station was a small museum with all sorts of old hoses, helmets, uniforms, and model fire trucks. There were even four wax figures modeling old fireman uniforms--one of which Eli thought was Santa.

While on the tour a fireman put all his gear on for us. He made sure the kids knew it was still him underneath his fireman mask. When he put on the mask Eli's reaction was to cover his mouth with his hands, giggle like a school girl, and exclaim"oh no, oh no". He didn't seem too scared--just a little anxious.

At the end of the tour we had the chance to look at the different fire trucks. Below are a few pictures taken at the end of the tour. Eli wouldn't smile for any pictures.

A friend of ours from church gave us a bunch of church clothes that her boys have outgrown. All of the outfits are these cute, snazzy shirts, vests, ties, and dressy pants. We've been having fun trying out a new outfit each Sunday morning. Below are a few pictures from 2 Sundays ago.

Picture Update

I just have a few minutes to update the blog, so I'm putting on some pictures from the past few weeks.

Below is Eli with the bag that his bed sheets came in. He likes to use it as a hat. He has this funny, squinty smile when posing for a picture with the camera now.

Well, he either uses the squinty smile or a thumbs up.Below is me at 35 weeks 2 days. I'm pulling the bottom of the dress so that you can see how ginormous I am.

I love my bun recipe. Below are some pictures of them fresh out of the oven. There's nothing like homemade bread.
Jake snapped this picture before Eli's bedtime a few days ago. Yes Dad, I am wearing Jake's shirt with your picture on it. With my belly where your head is, your head looks 3-D.
