The central struggle of parenthood is to let our hopes for our children outweigh our fears.

Movie Time

Eli and I went to see "Madagascar 2" yesterday evening.  It was good, but the best part was right when the movie started and Eli's toes started tapping to the music.  He looked at me and said, "Mom, when I drink pop it makes my feet dance!"

Girly Girl

Parker got her very own "girl toy" not too long ago.  She loves it.  We didn't have a little play gym for Eli so I figured I might as well get the girly one.  I also purchased a couple of tutus for her.  Pretty cute.

Sweet Treat Night

We went to "Sweet Treat Night" at Ralston High School with my friend Abby and her son Carter who is 9 months old.  He's wearing Eli's elephant costume that Grandma Kay made.  It's so cute on him!  I remember when Eli wore it we got lots of comments about the 2004 election. Abby has been getting the same comments.  He's not a Republican, he's an elephant.  I can't believe we picked that costume during an election year!

Go Cowboys

Marshall has long been a San Diego Chargers fan so I jumped on that bandwagon and have cheered for them and we've declared them as our NFL team of choice.  Eli recently decided he wanted to cheer for the Cowboys because his buddy Mason likes the Cowboys.  He's obsessed.  It will probably work out well though, my family has always cheered for Dallas and Great Grandma Dorothy is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan.  Since Grandpa and Grandma live in Texas I'm pretty sure that's another reason why he wants to be their #1 fan.  Maybe we can try to get Eli to a game someday.  He's still sporting the big, cheesy smile of course.
