We r still in disneyland but today headed to california adventure-a place with pixar characters-cars, woody and buzz, a bugs life. We got to talk w crush the turtle from nemo and see playhouse disney show. We then traveled around in search of characters as donald was requested by luke today. Along the way we came to arcade games. So luke played and beat 7 other players by rolling a ball into a hole and he won bulleyes the horse from toystory. Graham woke up and went fishing and won fishing mickey. Erin also played the water squirter game and won a dumbo but we gave it away to a little girl as eli didn't seem to interested in it. We found mickey, pluto, donald, and chip and dale today. So it has been a hit!!

Breakfast conversation

Luke: mom can graham have part of your muffin

Mom: I don't know that graham wants my muffin

Luke: (yelling to graham who is across from him) graham do you want part of my mom's muffin

Graham: yeah (one of his most popular answers to any question asked him)

Luke: looks at me and says 'graham says yeah'

Mom: breaks off part of muffin and hands it to graham

Graham: sniffs it and shakes head no

We arrived at disneyland! Graham isn't too sure of the characters and shakes his head and says "no no" as they come near. We ate at goofy's kitchen where a lot of characters came to your table to say hi. Jasmine from aladdin was the only one graham would let get near him!!

This innocent face is that of every parents worst nightmare on a plane. As he got over tired and tried to fall asleep he couldn't and ended up screaming for 45 mins straight wiggling around. Half the time his eyes were closed! He finally fell asleep 15. Mins prior to landing! Needless to say erin and joe pretended like they didn't know me as I tried to get graham to be quiet! No just kidding they had their hands full w/ the other 2! We are praying for an easier second leg into sf!!

Making food for Eli

I have made homemade baby food for all the boys and Eli is no different. The other weekend the boys were helping me make Eli's food. They wore their aprons and Luke helped put the pureed food into the ice cube trays, and Graham liked to play with all the cooking utensils.

Eli is 3 and a half months old now. He loves to laugh at faces the boys make or seeing you in his vision. He enjoys his brother talking to him and taking his hands and singing the "doo doo song" their dad made up. He is still waking up one time at night, but he really a very pleasant baby.

Port Farms

Eli and Drew ended up getting cuddled closely the whole time, but Luke and Graham and Josh and Grace enjoyed the whole experience from bowling, to going down slides, to hay rides and picking our pumpkins.

We have gone to Port Farms around Erie for the past 3 years with our friends from Medical School. It was last year at this time that we found out we were expecting again, and were very excited to not be in the same situation this year, as we have our hands full! But their kids are the same ages as our 3, only their middle child is a girl.

It is deer season around here if you are using a "crossboat" as Luke calls it. The boys have been excited about hunting and enjoy watching hunting shows their dad. This am before church Joe got Graham all ready to go with his hat, and his binoculars, and had his stuffed tiger that got shot a lot.
