Eli is 9!!!!

 Eli is a big guy today! I can't believe my little boy is 9.  He ate too many donuts and came home early from school with a tummy ache.  I guess I might need to rethink the donut tradition. Or maybe not.  I was happy to spend the whole day with him  I love this boy.

 Eli is a huge Minecraft fan.  I made him a Minecraft cake and he loved it.  I felt like it could have been better but the cakes usually don't turn out the way they look in my mind.
 We had everyone over for cake and ice cream. Eli got spoiled with usual.  He had a great birthday and was very happy.

Eli and Knox Mash up

Knox is a happy little boy when he is swinging on a swing. He loves to be outside and likes to be on the go.  He loved tasting his first lik-m-stik.  How weird that he loved sugar so much! ;)

 Climbing and causing trouble are like first instinct for out little rascal
The picture of Knox in the blue suit is one of my favorites!  That is an outfit Stewart wore when he was a little guy.

We love our little Knox and he keeps us on our toes.

Eli has been doing great.  He participated in his first pinewood derby.  It's what scouting is all about isn't it!   He is so cute.

Eli is our big reader.  He has a hard time waking up in the morning sometimes because he can't stop reading!  I love catching him when he's fallen asleep reading.  Eli also made a cake all by himself this month.  It was called a wacky cake and he did so good!  Eli loves to try new things.

 Eli is also a big hero in our house.  If Eli is doing homework then Knox needs to do homework too. Eli is a good big brother and helps Knox all he can.

3rd grader!

It seems impossible that I could have a 3rd grader.  I remember being in 3rd grade and I felt like I was big. Eli is still my baby though!  He is a funny, sweet, smart, caring boy.  He's a great big brother and I am so proud of him.  He always tries to be honest and to make the right decisions.   He doesn't like conflict and tries to get along with everyone.  He likes to have friends around but also can play by himself.  He plays with Knox and worries a lot about him.  He's always trying to make sure Knox stays safe.  I have to tell him not to worry so much.  I am so glad that Eli is my son.  I couldn't have asked for  a more perfect first born.
