Saturday we attended the Grossology Exhibit at ASU. We met up with the Allens, Hewitts and Quintanas. It was rather interesting. We got to learn all about toots, poots, burps and all kinds of smellies. The kids love it!

Carrie Underwood & LBT Concert

Monday night I attended the Carrie Underwood/ Little Big Town Concert at the ASU Convo with two very dear friends, Kara and Dana. We had a blast!
And no, we did not attend in the year 2036.  Kara is just a tad technologically challenged.  We still love her though!

Fall Festivities

Last weekend, E and I spent the evening at the Hewitt's eating fondue and carving pumpkins. The cheese fondue was a new recipe for Dana and I have to say, it was looking pretty scary! Much to our surprise, it tasted great, albeit a tad lumpy :)
Wednesday at cell, all the women worked on our bowling game for the upcoming fall festival. It was good times, as usual. Lots of laughs with some great women.
Yesterday we attended the Crossroads Fall Festival at the Hillis'. My sister-in-law (no, they are not married but I consider her as such) and my niece came with us. It was a great day to spend with some awesome friends. I was a last minute judge for the chili cook-off! Elijah and Kiley really enjoyed themselves. Big hits of the day were the apple bobbing (I think he got five), paintball target shooting, and the train rides. Elijah decided he wanted to get his hair It was pretty cute!

After church today, we headed out to mom's to do a little four-wheeler riding. Elijah's Papa just purchased him, yet another, four-wheeler. They are spoiling the child rotten!

Last night we kept Grady for a few hours.  As Grady was getting ready to leave, he bent down and gave Elijah a hug and a kiss on the cheek.  Elijah sprang up, with his stubby finger pointed in the air, and said, "Thank you, Grady, but I really like kisses from girls better!" 

Thank you, son.  You just made your mama real proud :)

Elijah just has a way of making me laugh, even at the most inappropriate times. Like when he is in trouble, or when he gets hurt, or when we are talking about something as serious as say, good touch/bad touch. Part of it is due to an uncontrollable reaction to laugh during serious or stressful situations. The other is due to how amusing Elijah can be.

Yesterday we were having a good touch/bad touch kind of talk. One that we have had many times before, but I like to put in a little reenforcement on occassion. I made mention of his "private parts" and he quickly replied "what is that?" I am thinking, WHAT?! How many times have we discussed this?! Then I realize I have never referred to his genitalia as such. I have always just called them by there technical name. And I bust out laughing. It really wasn't that funny. However, the laughter was uncontrollable. This makes Elijah very angry. To which he says in a very angry tone while cupping one hand over my mouth, "MOM, put your teeth back in your mouth!!!!" I completely lost it at this point. I think that is, by far, the funniest thing I have heard him say.

Happy 60th Birthday!

Sunday was spent throwing a birthday bash for our Grandma Willene.  After church, we headed to Imboden.  It was just the perfect weather for an outside get together.
