A First...

I know this picture doesn't look like much, but it is HUGE!!  Aiden is so excited to be leaving to visit family for the holidays he made a list of everything he and his brother should bring.  He did this independently.  My little guy who hates to write and spell and try anything that seems new or hard is growing up!

Here is a translation

giraffe                            cat

Back Seat Conversations

Aiden: What's a grave yard? (as we drive past a cemetary)
Mommy: What do you think?
Eli: It's where you go to dig to get things in a museum.
Mommy: Usually people don't dig up the dead people once they are in the cemetary.  It is disrespectful to disturb dead people. 
Eli: That's silly mommy.  You can dig there.  You can't disturb dead people.  They are already dead!
