Picture time!

We took several cute pictures this weekend.
In honor of anniversary, we all went out to eat on Saturday night (ok, Saturday early afternoon.)
Little Elvis and I are playing a game called Watch-me-stick-my-hand-in-my-mouth-and-say-ohm! It's a favorite at mealtime.

We took a break from the game to smile at the camera. At least I did. I think Little Elvis is still playing the game.
Silly boy.
Here's he's being even sillier.
He wanted my straw. He absolutely LOVES straws... for about a minute. This one ended up on the floor, as did several grapes, some chips and lots of other goodies. This was definitely one of his messier restaurant meals.

For the most part, he enjoyed the food. We're still just giving him parts of our meals. I got chicken enchiladas with salsa verde. It didn't mention just how hot the salsa verde would be.
Little Elvis loved the chicken inside the tortilla, but I wasn't able to scrape all of the salsa verde off. It made him cry out, but it wasn't hot enough to keep him from chowing down.
Bob offered him a tamale. It took a little coaxing for him to try that one. His favorite things, by far, were the sopapillas. They fit perfectly in his little hand.
The next day was church day. The schedule changed for the summer, so I've been trying out doing a Sunday School class as well as the church service. Little Elvis stays in the nursery the entire time.
We've been doing just the early morning service, and he was pretty much the only child in the nursery and he did just fine for the hour of the church service.
The two-hour experience with more kids must get tiresome for him. For two weeks I've heard reports that he definitely gets "tired" after an hour. I have no idea what this means, and the women don't expand their explanations.
One woman did mention that he played with each and every toy -- that definitely sounds like my son.
After the church service, they served Southern style homemade biscuits.
Little Elvis LOVED these. He grabbed his off the plate before I even had a chance to get one for myself. After a few nibbles, he decided that he would need to finish my biscuit for me as well.
He did offer me a crumb off of his finger, once he devoured it. The woman I was talking to at the time, said that he sure was a great sharer. Yeah.

Great photos! Toddlers are always generous with their crumbs, aren't they? ;)

Firstly, Happy Anniversary!

I have to say that I adore reading about your little man`s antics. He has such energetic, mischievous, wondrous boy spirit. Raising little boys is like nothing else on earth and it is so evident to me that you revel in it.
Hope you are doing wonderfully, thanks for checking in and thinking of me,

Happy anniversary! And he's adorable! Sounds pretty well-behaved, too!

I've actually been enjoying taking Esme out to eat - it's not as bad as some parents tell me! Of course, we don't go to five-star places . . .

She loves straws, too! If nothing else, I get one and take the lid off her sippy cup so she can use it there. Oh, and spicy is cool! Doesn't keep her from eating at all!

Little Elvis, you have good taste.
Homemade Southern Biscuits are just pretty smack-a-licious.

Happy Anniversary! I never see photos of you, and you looked so cute. :) It's funny how we have a billon pics of the little ones and like 1 of ourselves.

He is so cute! We are getting back into the church thing, too. It's hard. Especially to leave them with people you don't know very well. I am sure he does just fine. Oh, and I love his Sunday digs!

Thanks for the compliments! I rarely include photos of myself. Most days my hair is "styled" by one Little Elvis. And unless SPF 45counts as make-up, well... I'm definitely not usually ready for my close up.
