Celebrations and Dress-Up

Last Saturday Eli and I took the kids to Polaris Mall to walk around. With all the snow this year, there has been very little time to get out of the house. (Not to say we didn't have any fun. Thanks to Aunt Duck, we had some new things to play dress up in!)


Some of us where happier than others...


We also wanted to celebrate. Eli was extended a job offer from Chase bank! He starts March 29th and is super excited to be working there. Way to go Daddy!

While we were walking around, we came to the children's play area. We've never taken Charlie and Liv to one before and let them play. They really haven't been big enough to do much, and to be honest, H1N1 does a lot to keep a Mom from letting their children anywhere near other children! :) These things are breeding grounds for germs. Ew! But as they are walking now, we thought we'd let them down and see what happens. Charlie had a blast. He walked around and banged on all of the big boulders. Big kids would zip by and slide down all around him, but he cared not!


Liv, on the other hand, wouldn't even let us put her down. And really? Who can blame her? After all, it was a Saturday. And there were very large, very cabin-fever-ridden children running around. Needless to say, we didn't stay long. Next time we'll go back when those big, scary kids are in school. :)


(This might be my favorite picture up to this point.
I mean come on!)

We ate dinner at Applebee's to finish our celebration and then headed home to bed. It's so wonderful to spend time together as a family. It was a perfect day!

The picture of Eli holding Olivia is possibly the most heart-melting picture I've ever seen. You guys are parents... It's amazing.
Hugs, kisses and all my love.

I totally stole that picture of Eli and Livvy. I slide it right off onto my desktop. I will be staring at it from time to time...in fact, I'll be sliding the rest of them onto my desktop as well. The problem is that that they stay little...but it's enough to keep me happy until I get home.

This post was adorable. I would have liked to have seen you in a couple of pictures.... :)

Thanks for posting these, honey. They are absolutely the best. And I'm so pleased you could take the kids out. Interesting reaction from the angel face....and Charlie...that smile...oh my gosh....it's killer, Ab.....
