Today we took Elena to My Gym for a fundraiser for the YWCA. If you brought a package of diapers or pull-ups your child got to play for $1! There were also some baby races which were pretty funny. First was the ball pit. Here are Lunden and Elena playing~
Elena really likes reading, okay, she LOVES reading. Anytime the house gets really quiet and I am wondering if she is getting in to trouble, I can usually find her in a chair, or on the floor looking at a book. I am so happy that she loves this and hope that it continues for a long time. CJ was over tonight and they were both sitting on Elena's couch reading and I just had to grab a couple pictures - it was just too cute not to! :)
Elena has officially doubled the amount of teeth she has in less than a month, she has gone from 3 teeth to 6! What a difference seeing her with teeth in her mouth and not the big gummy smile that we got so used to. :) It makes her look so much older!
Robert and I have never babysat another child together, ever! But on Friday - while all the cool people were at the George and Reba concert, we babysat our friend's little boy, Drake. He and Elena are only a few days apart and they have spent a lot of time together so we figured this would be a piece of cake, and for the most part it was. They played really well together - high-fives, sharing sippy cups and toys, etc...
Do you remember your very 1st best friend? I definitley do - it was Lindsey! She and I lived down the street from eachother and we were absolutely inseperable while we were growing up. Honestly from the age of 4 to about 12 we were totally attached at the hip! We have some really cool pictures to prove it too! Lol!
Last week I got together with a group of "mommy-friends" at Super Suppers. This is a place where you go in and put together meals that you then take home and put in your freezer and thaw out when you want to use them. Very handy when you find that you don't have time to make dinner and/or don't want to pick up something quick and possibly unhealthy for the family. Another great thing is you put it together so if you know that your family won't eat onions, for example, you simply leave them out!
Thank you all for your kind words and prayers regarding my Aunt. I'm afriad she is going to need more prayers though, she made it through the surgery but the mass did turn out to be the same cancer she had previously been diagnosed with. It had impacted her kidney and the doctors were forced to remove it. She is doing better and getting stronger each day. She is also going to have to go through another round of chemotherapy, which is not the news we were hoping for, but I know how strong of a woman she is and truly believe she will be able get through this. Please continue to pray for her to get stronger and beat this, as well as for her family to help her get through this tough time. Thank you.
Today we went to one of Elena's friends birthday party at PURE Entertainment. This place is very cool - check out all the inflatables for the kiddos to play on!
Robert and I thought Elena would love this place...but as soon as we walked in she was terrified!
