Christmas 2006

First there was present opening (after reading the Christmas story) at our house. You can see Elijah enjoying his two favorite presents at once- his Batman costume and his Leapfrog Cars video game.
Mom sent these hockey pads and even though we don't typically play much hockey here, he is finding plenty of uses for them. Tonight he was a robot with them and yesterday he was a wrestler.
Next came Christmas at Nana and Papas. Here are most of the cousins before church on Sunday morning. You'll notice one cousin is conspicuously absent. He wasn't in a picture taking mood that morning but everyone else looks pretty happy. I'd say five out of six is pretty successful.
Micah is holding his spiderman toy from Uncle Josh and Aunt Jess- I just love the look on his face.
And our final present opening picture. We had a wonderful time seeing everyone. We can't wait to do it again soon!

We never took family unit pictures either - I wish my brain had been on! Love the pictures - they are the cutest bunch of kids ever!

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
