The boys unnatural love of Elmo has never been encouraged by Creighton nor I, but when Creighton ran across a movie (in HD, of course) called The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland he recorded it and saved it for the boys. Today, I let them watch it for about twenty minutes. They were absolutely INFATUATED!
I'm not kidding.............I really think Elmo could take over if he just had some strategery.

So here are a few pics from our trip to the zoo on Monday (October 15th). We went with three other MOMs and thier twins. We always have fun at the zoo the boys love the elephants and the lions. But it was so hot that day we were glad to get home and be in the AC for a while.
From L to R - Ciara and Gavin, Ally and Ashton, Zachary and Avery, Alex and Ben
Ciara and Gavin close up....with Ally being flirty.
Ally (still begin flirty) and Ashton.
Zachary (or as we like to call him Khaki) and Avery.
And finally Alex and Ben....with Alex flirting with Avery. What a ladies man!

Can you believe it? It is hard to believe that she is 3 months already. Where has the time gone, I'll tell you where it has gone... Laundry, dishes, bathrooms, floors, Laundry, picking up toys, work, dinner, Laundry, dusting, breakfast, Laundry, Preschool, Enrichment, MOPS, Lunch, and did I mention Laundry. Yeah we have been busy and it has made the time fly by. Elizabeth is now smiling all the time, laughing in response to those around her and sometimes at nothing in particular. She is still sleeping between 11 and 12 hours a night, cat napping in the daytime, and eating 4 (7oz) bottles a day. She seems quite interested in our food and screams when we eat in front of her. She hasn't rolled over yet, but I am sure that is right around the corner. She does love her white rattle bunny, TJ, her daddy, me too, and of course being swaddled (at least TJ gave us hope that we won't have to go on his mission with him to swaddle him up every night, so she will out grow it too.). We hate that we can't see you all whenever we want but are glad to stay in touch through the blog and webcam. We will see you all in December.
OKAY NOW FOR TJ:
TJ is doing great with preschool, he actually had a great Tuesday and he only had one time out, and then Thursday was SUPER... no time outs. Now that is a big deal for TJ. He is working hard at trying to be good. He is learning so much. They just talked about the letter "A" for Astronaut, and Apple, and did Aerobics. He is learning many new songs and even a few bible stories. They have talked about the Creation of the world, and Adam and Eve. I asked TJ how God created Adam and he told me out of dirt (as he bent to pick up imaginary dirt from the ground). I then asked him how God made Eve and he said, "From Adam's RIBBON!" (with a big smile while he pointed to his side). I corrected him and told him it was called a rib, and he said OH!!! He is sure smart. We love our little TJ. Tyler has begged all summer to give TJ a mohawk and I always had a great excuse... finally I didn't have one, so he did it. TJ didn't want a mohawk and Tyler convinced him it was a "Thomas Mohawk" like Thomas the tank engine. SO... TJ calls it the "Tomahawk". He even cut our neighbors little boys hair too. Well I thought you would all love to see it. We love you all.

Well, I would love to say that it went smoothly, at least the drop off and pick up did. When I went to pick him up I asked him if he had gotten in trouble and he just hung his head. I knew what that meant. I asked his teacher and as sweet as she could be and as nice as she could put it she said, "Yes, he had 2 time outs." I felt horrible. I wish that he could have made it through at least the first day or two without any timeouts, but this is TJ we are talking about. He did his best I guess. We had a long talk and we are going to "do better". Keep us in your prayers. Anyhoo... here are some pics of TJ on his first day, notice I only got 2 pictures, he could not stand still long enough for more than 2 pictures. He was so excited!!!! He even wore his backpack for an hour before school. :) His favorite part about their room, I think is the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Tree!
