Dinner Party

Last night we had a wonderfully fancy dinner party with our two friends Mike and Joan.  It was definitely the fanciest meals we've cooked and thankfully, it turned out wonderfully.  I used lots of cook books for this one, especially the Vegetarian Bible that Brent and Forest gave me.  Yummy--the polenta was outstanding.  I also used all our finest china and crystal.  I was so proud of all our hard work that I took a picture.  Doesn't it look beautiful??

And here's another pic of Eloise.  Can't have a post with showing you some updated Eloise pics.  She's talking up a storm and actually saying real things now: shoe, bubbles, Matt, Hannah, ball, Cici, Nana, Gigi, Daddy, Mommy, hot, hat, puppy, cracker, outside (her favorite), and more. To my Dad's dismay, she has yet to say "Grandad."  We're practicing though!

Estes Park

Hello! We are sad our week in Estes Park with our family is over! We had such a wonderful time visiting with everyone, and it's safe to say that everyone enjoyed watching the cousins play.  They were adorable!  Eloise learned some new words from her cousin Cici.  She now says "uh oh" for everything.  It's really funny when she beats herself to the punch like saying "uh oh!" and then throwing her pacifier on the ground.  Eloise also says "Cici and Gigi" now but hasn't yet mastered "Charlie."  We got some GREAT video of Eloise helping Cici walk, but these photos will have to do until we upload the video.
