Out of the mouth of Elisabeth

Today, while I was getting the two healthy, non-flu infected children ready to go to Bible Club, I noticed Elisabeth coughing.  She hacked and hacked, and since she was up some in the night coughing, we decided to keep her in with the others who have fevers.  When I told her she couldn't go to Bible Club, she looked downcast as only she can.  (If you want a peek into her personality, mix up Eeyore with deep sincerity and emotion.)  Then she picked up her head and said, "That's so sad, Mom, but it's OK, because Jesus is still with me!"

I said, "Never, never, never forget what you just said."

Here she is trying to make a face.  It doesn't quite work out.
Here she is trying to smile.
Still trying to smile, and getting a little silly. (The smile was so strenuous that it made her fall on the ground.)
Got one!  I love it-she's so spunky and funny.

Here she's got a lace thingy and pretending to be a bride.  She doesn't know about the ears.
My sweetie

Cute little twerp, huh?

Pictures of David's birthday, and some more 'cause he's a ham.

We had some friends over to wish David "Feliz,
Feliz CumpleaƱos"

I can't eat sugar, and it's maybe just as well.  Adults who eat this cake are brave.

This is the first time we've done the birthday bite.  He was not so sure about getting frosting on his face.
David needed an enemy for his Max to fight, so we got this guy, but apparently Cytro is Max's friend.  Who knew?

Some extra pictures.  Buzz is helping David with his game.

Hamming for the camera.

A ham with muscles.

He's a gamer already.  (Note the 'game face'.)

Some pictures from Elsiabeth's birthday

The birthday girl right before the proceedings

What happens when you let siblings, who also happen to be little girls, buy birthday presents for the birthday girl.

She's ready for her cake.

This took some doing.

There were many pictures with fewer and fewer lit candles, but I'll spare you.
I think she's trying to down the whole cake in one bite.

Whoah! It's next year already!

How did that happen?  We've been busy!  I was going through my pictures on my camera, and realized that I haven't posted anything with recent pics since October.  Well, I'll have to catch you up on the pictures, because I know certain relations really like them, and I've got some good ones!  If I ever catch up to the pace my life is running at, I might get to post some of the other things I've started for my blog, and never finished.  Oh, well, you know, my friends, real life must come first!
