One more post from Atlanta

One last post, two pictures.
First, Linda with Eli just before we left...

Second, in the 1st Class lounge in the Atlanta airport.  Jax isn't allowed to leave,
but it doesn't keep him from enjoying the lounge.

Eli's First Teeth Cleaning

Household goods were shipped last Saturday, our suitcases are packed, and tomorrow we fly...
But before we do...

Kaitlyn and Skip brushed Eli's teeth for the first time tonight!

He got the hang of it pretty quickly!

Then it was time for a story...

and a song with Granddad Mac..

We even got a wave goodbye.


Jade's First Competition!

Last weekend Jade ran in her first trial ever.  She competed with another dog in pairs and by herself in 'snooker'.  She received two third places and a first in snooker!!

She's loving it!!!

Thanks Paula for all that you're doing for her!!!

Another walk with Eli

Off for another walk.

It's a nice place to walk.  70 degrees!

A happy baby.

Our first walk with Elijah

Eli tries on his shoes.

And he's off...

But he takes time for a chat...

Going for a ride.


Eli's rocking horse.

Look at those BLUE eyes.

Now this is a smile.

Shake, Rattle and Roll Tide Roll...

It was time for a new "front facing" car seat for Eli.  Thanks Keith!

Grammie and Papa sent this rattle.

Jaxson is back at home, resting after the mean ol' lion statues...

Jaxson just outside Jackson

We took jaxson for a walk at Grandmother's house.  We got to this corner.
Notice the stone lions in the driveway...

He saw this set and moved to the other side of the street to go around them...

When he saw these, he turned around and ran all the way back to Grandmother's!

We're in Mississippi for the weekend celebrating Chris' Grandmother's 90th birthday.
This morning we all went to First Baptist Church of Clinton,
where Grandmother has gone for close to 50 years. 
This afternoon we had a reception for her with nearly 100 friends.

Halloween with Eli

Eli dressed up as a monkey (ok, Kaitlyn and Skip dressed him up) for Halloween.

I don't think he liked it though.

After a four day journey down the East coast, we arrived in Atlanta last night. A trip to Chickfilet, Kroger and a good night sleep, we gave Eli a donut for breakfast. You can tell he liked it...
