Valentine's Day, Etc.

Eli's class at school had the cutest Valentine's party on Tuesday. It was so fun to go and get to watch him experience all the best parts of Valentine's Day as a kid: little paper Valentine's, candy, cupcakes, etc. Here are a few pictures. They're all taken with my phone because I forgot my camera- sorry! (You can click on the pictures to make them larger.)

Eli and Timothy:

Enjoying a cupcake:

Me and my boy:

Isn't he cute? :)

And a few other phone pictures that I just want to post because I like them! :)

Eli and Bree, the daughter of some friends of ours who moved away this week. We were so sad to say goodbye, because we love them so much! But we're excited for how God will use them in their new roles with Young Life. We were so happy to spend one last morning with Bree at our house before they moved away.

Car wash: :)

Eli and Cooper at the zoo:

I still love to watch him sleep!

This picture is pretty unclear, but it's a view out our bedroom window into the giant bushes that separate our house from my parents' house. Eli and Timothy have dragged all kinds of lumber and anything else they can find into there, and they call it their "tree house." They go out there to "work" every day, spending hours banging around. They have informed us that once it's finished we'll "get rid of" our houses and all just live in the tree house. Eli thanked God last night for "mine and Timothy's jobs." I asked, "What's your job?" He looked at me like it was such a silly question and said, "Working on the tree house!" Duh. :) Anyway, this picture is of Eli with his Valentine's balloon, which he took directly to their tree house to "decorate." :)
