They followed us around the store filming us buying shorts for Dusty and then the diapers. They used the diaper clip for the national news. Dusty had a positive comment about the economy and how our business was doing well but of course they didn't use that! Bad news sells. Oh, well. But hey! It was cool being on the news! Click on the link above and it should play after a quick commercial.

We have been having beautiful spring weather so we've been playing outside a lot. I thought Anson would love riding his tricycle but he just isn't into it yet. Maybe soon. But in the meantime, he still loves looking for worms, playing in the sand box, and going on walks. We are lucky to have such a great old neighborhood to walk in. I've been walking in the evenings after I put the kids to bed and it is so neat to see everyone out on their porches or weeding the gardens or just out for a stroll.
Well, I can't think of anything else right now. Have a good one!

(FYI, their Bible is called "My First Bible in pictures" compiled by Kenneth Taylor. It is a great first Bible! It puts the Bible story in words they can easily understand and God is the hero of every story...not just a good moral tale.)
Ella is still on the verge of crawling. Tuesday night she actually moved one knee and one hand forward! She is becoming a real wiggle worm now that she has had a taste of moving on her own.
I guess that is it for now. Have a great weekend!

Getting ready to crawl!
Ella will be 7 months on Saturday and she is on the brink of crawling! She gets right up onto her hand and knees and rocks back and forth! She's ready to move! I don't know if I'm ready for her to, but I am so happy with her progress since having the brace off in the daytime. I wasn't sure if she would be behind in hitting her developmental milestones but it hasn't seemed to hold her back at all. Praise the Lord! She is also enjoying her solid (pureed) foods now! So far she has successfully eaten squash, peas, carrots, green beans, sweet potatoes, apples, pears and bananas. The only way I get her to like her rice and oatmeal cereal is to mix it with bananas, so that is usually what she has for breakfast. She continues to be such a sweet little cuddle bug who rarely fusses. We are so thankful for her!
Last night when I was reading to Anson before bedtime, we were reading a silly book about fish. We came across a line that said "They'd better hurry or they'll be bait!" He said "late, Mommy, not bait". He corrected me in grammar! He obviously didn't get that it was a play on words, but hey, I thought that was pretty good!
Then at church last week, Anson was flipping through a Bible sitting on the end table and he said "Mommy, I need to read my verses... The Lord is my shepherd... The Lord is my light and my salvation...A wise man fears the Lord... A happy heart is like good medicine"! HE remembered ALL the verses that I've been teaching him! Makes a mommy's heart proud!
Well, have a great weekend!

Which one is the ape?? :o)
Ella's First Carousel Ride
Quick Ella Update: We went back to the orthopaedist on Wednesday and he took some more x-rays. Her hips are looking great! They are starting to calcify which is right on schedule (between 6 and 12 months) . Since she is doing so well with wearing the brace at night time, he wants her to wear it for 2 more months until her bones are even more calcified. So it was a great report!

Then he gives me an Eskimo kiss (we rub noses).
Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are sons born in one's youth.
Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the
