Okay, actually out hunting. Don't expect any posts for at least the next week and a half, as we'll be in pursuit of the elusive elk!

More Bat Stuff

You know I'm generally not in favor of licensed "stuff"

You'd never know it looking at Eli...

Quick, Robin! To the Bat-Box!

(thank you, Auntie Kim!)

To Seattle! So sad!

She visited us this past weekend

Read books, ate pizza

and brought Iris an adorable fleece vest!

Eli really likes lemon. Melon. 

I'm glad. It is such a challenge to get him to eat!

Pretty Toes

His daddy doesn't like it, but I'm going to keep painting my little boy's toes as long as he asks me to.

Eli's Lunchbox

Eli's grandparents brought him a lunchbox from Yellowstone Park.

He's been going on pretend picnics all week. 

Here's his lunch:

Apples, bananas, and chicken with monster sauce.
(He says it's spicy)

Famous Swords

I guess I am not the biggest geek around, since I can only think of 4 famous swords. 

This is Eli and Glamdring (the foe-hammer) I know, he's mixing genres!

The other three I knew were Excalibur, Orcrist and Narsil...

Only a few weeks ago Iris started crawling. 

Suddenly she is sitting on her own, pulling herself up on furniture, and trying to crawl upstairs. 

We had to resort to this!

Being a SAHM can be a lot of work. I feed everyone, make beds, do laundry, feed everyone AGAIN, clean, blog, referee, enforce nap time, etc, etc...

That's why sometimes it's nice to have helpers. 

So thank you, Batman and Wolverine, for protecting the sausage.

Eli and Iris are on a boat, going to visit Tutu in Hawaii.

Eli sees a shark, so Iris stays sitting down for safety.
