I decided I would start documenting the funny things Elijah says. If I could remember them all it would be in the hundreds. Unfortunately, one thing I wasn't blessed with is a good memory. He is quite possibly the funniest kid I know (of course I may be a tad partial). Most of the things he says is comical, but every once and awhile I cringe. Here are some of the most recent...
- As I am opening a new tube of toothpaste...
Elijah: Mom, is that mine?
Elijah: Oh thank you mom! You're so brave!
- As we're driving down the road...
Elijah: Mama, that idiot needs to get off the road, don't he?
(wonder where he got that???)
- As I am flying around the room getting ready in the morning...
Elijah: Is Aunt Vicki and Ol' Raspberries going to beat you up if your late for work?
(Vicki and Ol' Raspberries aka Sherri are my bosses)
- As we are driving down Caraway past Burger King...
Elijah: Mom, mom! That is where Uncle Michele and Aunt MaScott took me the other day!
(Uncle Michele and Aunt McScott are two of my closest friends)
- Driving to Lake Frierson for our church service we go over a pretty steep hill (the kind where you lose your stomach) and it probably didn't help that I was speeding a bit...
Elijah: Whoooooa Mom! You better hang on to your britches!
I've been thinking of some activities that I can get Elijah involved in this summer. I was going to sign him up for t-ball, but I waited around until the teams were full. He will still being going to pre-school throughout the summer, but I think I am going to do this "letter of the week" idea I have heard about. Basically, you focus on a different letter each week and do activities that relate to that letter. I think it will be fun and a great learning tool to boot. Not only that, it will get us out of the house more often. Stay tuned for "letter A" and ideas of what we will be doing!

The other greats things about going on a work trip to Hot Springs is that we always stay at the Arlington Resort Hotel and Spa. I love the ambiance of that place. So relaxing. Typically, Vicki and I go to the bath house there and get the works-bath, towel wrap, and massage. To my surprise, neither of us were all that interested in it this time around. We hung out in the lobby the first night and had a few drinks while we listened to a little live music. We ate good food...Porterhouse, On The Border and Rolando's. If you are ever in Hot Springs you must check out Rolando's. Have the Adventure Platter...I promise you won't regret it!
True to our tradition, Friday afternoon we headed to Oaklawn Park for some horseracing fun. I am not a gambler, but it is fun to do it once a year. I don't ever spend more than twenty bucks and every once in a while I leave there breaking even.
Ahhh, now the good stuff. Shopping! What I look forward to most is strolling down Central Ave. and checking out all the neat shops. Scores this time around...shiny black/white/grey cheveron handbag, handpainted art, choker with two pendants (cross and high heel shoe), mango lime salsa, fru fru napkins, wall cross, and gifts for Elijah and the Allens.
