What a cutie!

Here are some cute pictures for the family that don't get to see Eli very often!

Eli at 4 weeks

His first smiles caught on camera. (sorry for the poor quality) Emma was the one who got Eli to smile first and she is SOO proud!

Tyson's new bike!

Tyson has been bugging us to get a bike he can ride lately so Stan took training wheels from another bike and put them on a bike that was given to Tyson. Tyson LOVES it. He and Emma love to ride their bike together! Although Emma cane up with one rule while on their bikes - Tyson is not allowed to go faster than her. It is kinda funny how mad Emma gets when he tries to get around her. Tyson pedals his heart out and has great fun. Now we just need to take the training wheels off but Tyson says he is not ready yet.

Eli's blessing

Days before Eli was born, my grandma passed away. She was a great woman who lived to be 101! Because of this my dad and two sisters were going to be in Utah. Since my dad has never been able to participate in the blessing of any of his grandchildren in person we decided to bless Eli when was 10 days old. It was a great day. It was the first time in a long time that my whole family was together, minus my sister's husband and boys who were missed terribly. We were glad there were some many family members from both sides there. Stan gave Eli a wonderful blessing. I wonder what his life has in store for him.

We had a great four days with everyone here. My kids were happy to have more attention and people to play with than just mom and dad. It was so awesome to have my family here. It reminds me of times when we were still at home and the great times we had together. I am grateful for family and for all they do for us. Now I just have to work it out so we all live close!
