New look, same awesome family

You may notice a new look to our blog. That is because I have enabled the Dynamic Views template. This allows you to specify from the drop menu on the toolbar which view you would like to use. I like the Mosaic and that is what is set as default.

I have created another page for our Clickers. If you are missing something that was on the old format, please let me know and I can add it to the Clickers page or to a new page all together.

To get back to the blog after looking at the Clickers page, click on the "Rough and Ready" title.

Hope you enjoy.

The NEW Twinkle Twinkle

I just heard Elliott singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in tub. She
replaced the word Twinkle with "nipple".


Easiest lunch ever!

All she wanted was red beans in a cup!

Sunday, October 23, 2011


Today rocked. Elliott is learning how to take care of her potty business. Today she was outside playing with her friends then came running in the house saying "I need to pee pee" she did the doo and then went scampering about outside. Big milestone versus having to be prompted. We are on our way!

On another note: One of Elliott's neighborhood friends is a sweet boy named Larry who is in the 4th grade. He is very kind and patient with her and she adores him. Currently, Jeremy and I are sitting on the couch,thinking Elliott is asleep and we hear her shout "Larry!" She loves those neighborhood kids! They makes it worth the mortgage!

Elliott has not been sick all summer.

We have slept in the new house for two nights and she is sluggish and
eating minimally. Just not herself. I am thinking she is not really
sick, just overwhelmed! Poor baby. Change is hard!

P.s. Note our fabulous paint color!

Best Friends!

Today was Andrew and Elliott's last fun day together before the
Onken's leave town for a bit. Aren't these two the sweetest ever? Even
the thought of moving these two 10 minutes away from each other breaks
my heart!

James Taylor moves women of all ages to tears

Elliott had a bit of a fever and me playing this James Taylor song, which I haven't played in many years, really struck an emotional chord with her. I think she didn't know exactly how to deal with whatever she was feeling.

A Good Night's Sleep

We woke up this morning to a circle of medical staff. They took a look
at Elliott's boo boo toe. She cried out for a moment and then went
right back to sleep. They are quite happy with the progress and it
looks like we are going home today...

Water Table Time

We got a break from the rain for a bit. Busted out the water table and
"gardening" hat. Actually, she was not very interested in going
outside until I mentioned the "gardening hat". We take care if our sad
little basil plant while we wear our hats. Mine is required also, but,
fortunately, is not required to be featured here.


I have a love/ hate relationship with this piece.
