Picture of the Day

My plan is to take one picture for every day this year and put them all in a 365 album. I got a late start so it is more like 351 album, but I forgive myself for that. This is today's picture, just me and the boys.

What!? No Weapons?!

Me: "Honey what's wrong?" Ellis: "Will won't let me have any weapons in our game." Me: "You can have pretend weapons, you can have as many as you want Sweetie." As he quickly wipes the tears from his eyes "Okay, I want a missile and a pistol and a black gun and one more pistol, and thats it for my guns. Oh wait, and I want 2 bee bee guns."

Ellis' Christmas Letter

I thought I would share the Christmas letter that Ellis wrote for PJ and I. Every time I read this letter it makes me smile.

Dear Mommy and Daddy,

If I could take you anywhere in the world, I would take you to the movie theater and the pet store.

If I could do anything in the world for you, I would first give a foot rub and then pick-up my toys.

If I could give you anything in the world, I would give you a clock with an apple on it like Chalky's, a fish, a cat, and a Christmas card.

Love you!
