Following Quinn's footsteps

Last week, in honor of Eli's birthday, we went to a salon to get his haircut and boy was it cut. It looks great but I was not prepared for how much was coming off. But it is so much easier to fix now and he looks great. Here are the pics

Before the haircut

During...he actually only cried this one time...when she cut around his ears.

Eli's 15 minutes

I decided to post the page of the newspaper with Eli's picture from Sunday so those who don't live here can see what it looked like too. He was a pretty good model although he wouldn't really look at the books for very long. At home, his books will entertain him for an hour but I guess in the studio he had alot more interesting stuff to get into so he had a hard time concentrating:)

Favorite pic

So this morning, Eli got to be in a photo shoot for the paper for a story on children's books. I had to take the pictures so after the shoot, I decided to take advatage of the studio and take some pics of my own. This is one of Eli and his "lovey," which he never lets go of practically and it turned out to be maybe my favorite picture of Eli so far:)

BTW: For those of you in Gwinnett, Eli will be on the front of the life & leisure section of Sunday's Gwinnett Daily Post.

Hunka, Hunka Burning Love

Eli as Elvis Presley!

When Eli was little when we would brush his hair, Josh and I used to think he had Elvis hair so that was his Halloween costume...Plus, they have the same initials, which we put on the suit. Most of all, I was very proud that I made the costume myself. Even though I have a very crafty Mom.

I've never been crazy about Halloween but this year it was so much fun. First, on Saturday my brother and sister-in-law threw a party at their house and we had a great time.

My dad has the nickname "Queenie" for Christy so that's what she was dressed as.

My brother was a CSI guy :complete with the shirt:

Then, on Tuesday we got to trick or treat with our friends Will and Kelley Hammock and their children Bryn(AKA Snow White) and Dylan(Clown) through their neighborhood

Cousin visit

Two weekends ago, we had a great visit with the Scoggins and I took so many pictures that I have been putting off posting them because of the time it would take. So, I am only posting a few, but here's a link to my shutterfly account (copy and paste into a search engine. I tried a link but it wouldn't work) if you want to see them all:)


We had a great time and loved every minute we got to spend with Trip and Quinn.
