Out of the Mouths of Miles and Eli.....

Today at church we were sitting next to the missionaries. They had an investigator come in a little late and sat down right by us. The investigator was pretty overweight and before I new it Miles said in a not so quiet whisper, "Mom, she ate too many cookies but I won't call her fat" (Miles and I have had the discussion about how we treat everyone kind and we never say mean things that would hurt other people's feelings).

Then Eli chimes in and says, "Don't eat my crackers" as he pulls them closer to his body to protect them.

I WAS MORTIFIED!! I'm still hoping she didn't hear, but that's not likely. I tried to pull out their cars and books as fast as I could before they could say anything else.

A few days ago we were going around our neighborhood on our bikes. There is always this guy standing in his driveway smoking a big fat cigar. As Miles rode by he said to him, "You should really listen to Jesus more often." The man just said, "Um, OK" and I just waived and smiled.

What's a mom to do:)

Let's Talk Baby Names:

We still do not know what we are going to name baby boy #3. We've narrowed it down ( I think) to these names: Liam, Truman, Sawyer or Crosby. If anyone reading our blog has an opinion on these names or a suggestion to add to our list, please feel free to comment. I know I still have 10 weeks to go but it seems like it's approaching fast.

Tennis Lessons for Miles

With Miles being 4yrs old now we can sign him up for sports through the rec ed program. We first tried tennis. He did pretty well the first few lessons but then I think he got bored. If it wasn't for coach Allie I think he would have just stayed home the last couple weeks. Miles really had a crush on coach Allie. Eli still talks about her when we go over to the park and pass the tennis courts. He'll say, "Miles played tennis with coach Allie right there".
We start soccer in a couple weeks. We'll see how that goes.

John's New Hobbie.......

Carving coconuts. Much cheaper and safer than racing motorcycles.


We headed up to Titusville (about 4 hrs away, up by Cape Canaveral) to spend Thanksgiving with Grandpa Gary and Grandma Janet. We had a rough start to our trip. We got off about an hour and a half later than planned. John had to stop by his school to get some books so he could study that weekend and while we were pulling out to head toward the freeway an older lady from Canada rear ended us. Thankfully it was really minor, just a few scratches, but it scared the boys and delayed our trip even more. Then, I decided to take the scenic route because it's much prettier of a drive but didn't realize how late it was. We were heading to Dinosaur World, a park about an hour and a half from Titusville, with 50 or so life size dinosaurs and other fun things to do. I called earlier in the day and they said they closed at 6:00. No problem I thought. We got there about 4:45 and they said, "Sorry you were misinformed, we close at 5:00pm". I just about cried at that point. But, what are you going to do. We let the boys run around for 15 or 20 twenty minutes, got back in the car and went to five Guys for dinner. That will always make a pregnant girl feel better.

The rest of the weekend was great. Janet and Gary cooked a nice Thanksgiving meal. The weather was so nice we spent a bunch of time out side. These pics are from the park we went to the Friday after Thanksgiving.
