Here are some highlights from our weekend road trip!
After the 1st outlet mall...
Perked right up once we got to Steak-N-Shake!
How did he get so filthy?
After a big lunch of grilled cheese, cheddar fries & chocolate shake!
Looks like Ryan & Papa G are ready for a nap as well!
I hope you can see this below but when we got home, all the kids at the end of our street had lined up their lawn chairs on the side walk and our neighbors had brought out a tv/dvd combo. The ice cream man had just came by and all the kids were lined up to watch a Saturday night feature. It was soooooo cute. I love our neighborhood!
ps....ONE MORE DAY TIL WE LEAVE FOR THE BEACH!!!!

Yes...that is the monkey from Tuesday's post.
Yes...the same monkey in the room (affectionately known as the "Halford Room") at the Dr's office.
Yes...that means you can do nothing but alternate Tylenol & Motrin.
Yes...that means that Keaton will most likely get it since it is near impossible not to share spoons and slobber coated toys.

Go to "Waiting Families". Click on the state of Arkansas when the map pops up and they should be the 1st couple listed. (They are the cute ones in blue!)
Please take a moment to take a look and say a special prayer that God will bring the child (or children) to Shannon & Michael quickly so they can get started in expanding their precious family.
I will be sure and keep you all posted along the way. I am encouraging Shannon to start a blog so as soon as she does I will be sure to post the link so you all can keep us with their journey as well. Until then, if you would like to leave a comment on this post, I will be sure that Shannon sees it...or you can always email me and I will forward it on to them.
Thank you all my prayer warriors for keeping them on your hearts and lifting them up to Him during this special and exciting time in their lives. Yall are the best!

- Elliot has two teeth (as seen below).
- Last week the kids weighed in at 15.11 (Keaton) and 14.10 (Elliot). Being on real food they have gained almost a full pound in less than a month!
- Both kids have taken two steps on their own.
- Elliot has learned that when playing in Keaton's bed, she can reach the light switch and turn the lights off!
- Elliot has decided to become a climber. We found her in one of the alcoves in the playroom today doing this...
This isn't of her teeth but check out those eyelashes!
- Keaton got his first joke. Seriously, I held this T-shirt up to him in the store and he started dying laughing. We just had to get it!
- And today, Ryan taught Keaton to play the guitar.

We have also been battling Keaton as he tries to cut his first teeth. The last few nights have been awful but tonight he was asleep by 8pm (the last few night have been pushing 10 and 11pm!) Thursday night was terrible and at 11:00 after giving him every teething drug, gel and toy known to man, I finally found what worked....a hot bath with Johnson Nighttime Bubble Bath and a Popsicle...AT THE SAME TIME!
(Side note...if you haven't tried the Mighty Minis, you must get them. The are perfect for little ones!) Luckily that finally calmed him down enough to let me bounce him on the exercise ball and get him to relax. Once he did he crashed...only to awaken at 6 am. Any teething advice out there, please share! And if you know why the later kids go to be the earlier they wake up, please let me know as well.
Here is Keaton happy as can be during the day!
I am also wondering why my kids still get tired a couple of hours after they wake up. I read that they should have given up their morning nap already and gone to just a good long afternoon one. I wouldn't mind the two naps a day but they get SO fussy around 9am and that is right when we go to the gym and to church on Sundays. Today when we picked the up from Sunday school they were both screaming because they were so tired. I really don't want to have "those kids" who the teachers dread coming each week. They did get promoted to a bigger class today with some great teachers who I think they will love. Their room had a little kiddie ball pit so who can resist that. Hopefully next week will be better.
We also went up this weekend and helped Nana set up her classroom. The kids LOVED being at school and playing in her class. Thank goodness for the pom-pom decorations that entertained them for a good hour.
Keaton was not happy that I made him look away from the pompom to take a pic!
Kids love laminated posters!
Finally on Friday we had some of the neighbors over to celebrate our next door neighbor Brian's (39th) birthday. Yes, that is 39 candles on the cake and no our smoke detector somehow didn't go off!
That's about it for this weekend recap. Thank goodness it is finally raining and cooling off a little bit! I have actually been chilly this afternoon and I think the weather said we could have some lows in the 60's this week...YAHOO!
Oh...last thing...in case you were wondering, Adam & Bethany got out of Jamaica just fine! They got home late Friday night and Adam told Ryan that all the locals there were in denial and said they thought it would only rain. Good thing they got out of their when they did!
