A Boy and his Fort
A peep hole to see out of!
OK, Elijah has hit that "boy" stage. Power Rangers, wanting to tackle or wrestle everyone, and is now into building forts. This was done with my living room cushions that he built for himself over the weekend when Sami and Ethan were out at a teen dance and Hannah was with a friend. Not only does he do this but he will pull the blankets over the top bunk to cover his bottom bed and build a fort in his room that way also. When I went to check on him, he had pulled out a sleeping bag and made his fort a place for him to sleep in. Of course I had to get some pictures. However, about 2 hours later while Chris and I were still not asleep do to working late at night on plaques to get caught up on we heard giggling. So I look down the staircase to see him laughing IN HIS SLEEP! It was quite cute actually. He is a happy go lucky kid in general but to be laughing in his sleep too! Must be a pretty funny dream. Anyway he happened to roll and the top part of the fort fell on his face. Chris said to leave him alone but it was bothering me so I went down and I could still hear him giggling, but muffled. So I hurried and moved the pillow off his head thinking he couldn't breathe. Nope, the pillow falling on him woke him up and he was watching some Disney channel show through the spot of the fort he could see out of and was laughing at the TV now! I finally convinced him to let me put the cushions back on the coach and sleep on the coach with his sleeping bag if he was going to stay in the living room instead of moving to his bed. He gave in because the cushions kept falling over. However, I had to share because its so cute!
This is one of my absoulte favorite pictures of my kids and Chris. Father's Day 2006 Chris was deployed to Iraq. So I had this picture made and sent to him as his gift. I dressed the kids in camoflague and sat them on a pile of sand. On their shirts they each wore a yellow ribbon with the flag with one star in the middle meaning deployed once. They are holding a picture of Chris right before he got on the plane to Iraq. I added this picture because its almost Father's Day again and I started thinking about all the Father's deployed right now who I am sure know their kids are missing him as much as he is missing his kids. Happy Father's Day! Expecially to all those Military Families with loved ones who are deployed. Come home safe and soon!
The kids at Big Lake, Canada
As I loved thier beach picture sort of like this, while they were looking at this huge lake so clear and blue I had to try to capture that moment again, and I did.
Father and Son
I forgot I had this photo. I love it. This is Chris and Elijah sitting on the river bank on Elmendorf AFB, Alaska. Its funny... Sami and Ethan were glued to me. Hannah was the first 4 months because of colic but then a shift happened. Hannah and Elijah became daddy's. Don't get me wrong they still come to me but they love their daddy. This shot is precious shot of Father and son.

My Favorite Family Picture
Kids in the Ocean in San Diego
This is one of my all time favorite pictures that Chris took. The only thing is we can't get it to enlarge so you can see it better. However you can see they joined hands and ran all 4 right into their first ocean. It was great fun for us.
