2 Months!

Have I already said how much I have loved every minute of Eli's life?! Yes, there seem to be a few more worries in life than before(and many more to come as a mom), but that is where my faith and trust in the Lord come in!

Eli is the sweetest boy! He is always making me smile with his quirky faces and sounds, that seriously sound like a giggle (but I know he isn't laughing)! We can't wait to bring him home in Dec. to share him with everyone!

“speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:19-20

The Sun Really Does Shine Here!

Isn't family the best? We were so lucky to have the Thorps spend the weekend with us! We had so much fun but it went WAY too fast! It was hard to say bye, especially to smiley little Caleb!

We pretty much just hung out, watched football, played with our boys and enjoyed some yummy food!

But then it happened...Sunday the sun came OUT!!! We were all so excited! This was Megan's third time here and she still had not seen it be sunny here! We were so thankful and enjoyed every bit of it!

Thanks again Thorps! We missed you already yesterday!:)

We love you all!
P.S. Happy 2 Month Eli! I will post about that later today or tomorrow!

8 Weeks, Stoney Ridge and the Vikes

Eli will be 8 weeks tomorrow. As I say in almost every post now...time goes so fast! Eli seems much bigger than these pictures even show! He is such a sweet boy, we truly can't get enough of him! He has the most kissable cheeks in the whole stinkin' world!

We went to the same pumpkin patch/apple orchard last year! This year was much more fun with Eli! As Emily said, "It looks like he is really interested!" Ha, he sure was!

We got to watch our first Vikes game this year! We were so excited that they were finally going to be on out here, so we got all ready for the game...in our awesome apparel and... WAH WAH...terrible game. Total Bummer, but Eli and daddy still looked snazzy!

We love you and miss you all! We are super excited that the Thorps are coming to visit us tomorrow...woohoo! Praying they finally get to see Mt.Baker, but the northwest weather isn't looking promising!
"Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:26-27

A week already?

Well, it has already been a week since we have been home. I have to say it went MUCH too fast. It was a whirlwind of a weekend. We were so thankful to get that quick trip to MN for our families to meet sweet little Eli and I think they all enjoyed it too!

I somehow didn't get any pics. of my mom and dad, even though they were the ones with Eli the most?!

My good friend Melissa even got a chance to sneak over to my parents house and take some beautiful(or "handsome", as my mother would want me to say) photos of Eli! She is the sweetest friend and most amazing photographer. She is just starting out and boy is she great! You can check her out here.

We love you and miss you all! Hope you are enjoying your "warm" fall weather in MN. It is definitely fall here...cloudy, rainy and cool. Ahhh, the dreariness begins.

"...You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.” Psalm 63:1
