August is almost over, so here are a few pics from the last couple weeks of some of the fun we had at our home.
Emma and Alia pose outside the door of their Great-Grandma Johnson's old farmhouse. The property is being auctioned off next week, so Tara and Amy brought the kids over to visit the place one last time. Our children had never been here before; Tara's Grandma Johnson died two springs past, and prior to that had been in an assisted care center for a few years. It was sad to see the place rundown, but it was important to us to take some pics and let our kids run around there.
After we left the farmhouse, Papa Jim and I went to get Nelsons BBQ Chicken (part of a local church community fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity) and brought it back to our place for a tasty lunch. Jim and Naomi hung around with the kids for the afternoon while I went to lead a funeral service.
Poor Hannah didn't have a big enough diaper...good thing she fits in Eli's clothes.
Emma and Isaac enjoyed quick bath together; they love to pose for the camera!
Happy Five Month Birthday to Eli on 8/26! He's got a great toothy grin, and once in awhile he looks at the camera for a norma picture. Well, almost normal..at least he's happy in this one.
Like I said, he has a toothy grin...he has two bottom teeth come through already, so now he drips like a leaky faucet.
Yes, Eli does get enough to eat; he's not eating the bear, he just likes to put everything in his mouth...which means there is lots of wet stuff wherever he has laid. Ech...
Emma's doing a little dance, the brothers finally through away their pacifiers! They only used them at night, but now they are big boys, and they don't want them anymore! Finally...
Levi is all smiles in getting ready to throw away his paci. He's excited, we went to Cracker Barrell for dinner, and then they were both able to pick out a stuffed animal to sleep with instead of using their pacifer. They both picked out a big stuffed Gumby horse!
Isaac is ready...he refused to put them in his mouth for one last picture! I was so proud of him, he's ready to sleep with Gumby, he's a big boy now!
