Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning

We spent Christmas in Iowa this year. On Christmas Eve we went to the Scovill family Christmas party where Santa came. Eli wasn't to thrilled alot sitting on his lap. While we were at the Christmas party, Santa came to our house! Eli had fun opening presents.
Christmas morning Eli open some more presents from mom and dad and G'ma and G'pa. Here are some pictures.....

We had a Little Celebration

We decided to let ELi open some of his presents before we went to Iowa this year. We didn't want to pack them just to bring them back home.

A Walk in Nature

Grandma Colleen took Eli to a nature walk a few days ago. Eli loved it!!!! His favorite part was watching the ducks, which he spent about 20 minutes watching.

These are some pictures of Halloween this year. Eli had fun digging in the pumpkin, and was very helpful in putting back all the seeds once I removed them. :0)
We went trunk or treating with my parents ward so that Eli could have some kids to walk around with, after we went to a few houses. Eli did really well at trunk or treat when I said "choose one" he would only take one, then put it back in the bowl and choose something different. He really liked Grandpa's bowl and decided to get two handfuls of pencils.

Enjoy the pictures....there are a lot!!!!

Someday I'll laugh about this,but today is not that day.

Eli decided to drink my perfume tonight. Since I will be up for the next 4 hours watching him, I decided to blog.

Eli drank about 25 mL of Celine Dion perfume. He was acting all loopy and falling over, not being able to hold his sippy cup, etc. So I called poison control and they told me that because it had only been about 10 minutes and he already was acting loopy that it would be a good idea to take him in to the E.R. just to make sure.

We weren't there long, which I am sooooooooo grateful for. The Dr. came in and talked to us about what the effects were (high blood sugar and alcohol level). He said that if it was child he wouldn't do blood tests on him because they would treat it all the same way no matter what the tests showed. So we opted out of doing blood tests. We felt comfortable with this since we are only 3-5 minute drive to the hospital.

The Dr. said that he will be extremely hyper because of the blood sugar level and that he would be acting like he was drunk. We are suppose to watch him tonight and make sure that he isn't rolling over and suffocating, or vomiting. Everything is going well right now.. He's sleep on my lap and acting ok.

For some good news (what I was planning on posting today )

Eli is getting to be a little boy now, not just a baby. He has now figured out how to climb on top of the stove and freezer. He can point to any body part, if we ask him where it is. He says new words: eye lash, trees, knees, all done. Eli is getting so big, running anywhere and everywhere he goes. He loves going to the park with his grammy now that it is getting cooler during the day. We usually take him to the park for family night because he loves it so much. We have a little park up the road that has a special playground for toddlers that is just his size, so it is a lot easier to let him run and play knowing that is he falls it isn't too far from the ground.

A Much Needed Update

I've been informed by about everyone that I haven't posted any new pictures for awhile, so here is what has been going on with our little family.

Eli is all over the place. Getting into everything. Trying to do things he can not do, but tries every time. (that is why his head has a constant bruise on it somewhere). He's is so funny. I will ask him questions and he always says "yes". He can now successfully walk down the stairs with a railing, he makes it about 2 steps without one. He loves playing outside, because he can run forever and still have plenty more room to go. Some other words he says are "dog" "woof woof" "ba ba" (baa baa) "ba b" (bye bye). He can also climb into the car and get in his seat (if he wants to go in, usually we have to hog time him though). He gets into his high chair all by himself when he thinks he needs something to eat. I love him so much!!!

John is now teaching 5th grade at Diamond Valley. He is also doing his internship for his administrative endorsement, and also is teaching a college course at Dixie State. He's a busy go this year with lots to do, never a minute to relax without something due. He says it will be worth it after this year. The first semester of his internship will be at Diamond Valley and next semester will be at the high school and district office. He's doing great!

I am teaching 4th grade at Arrowhead. I also started selling Pampered Chef this month, which I am very excited to do. I have a great lady over me that is helping me to get started to pick up lots of business. I will let you know how it is going in future blogs.

I hope all of you who have said I do not post enough enjoys these pictures! :0) They are all from since my last post, and please don't ask for dates!!
