I HAVE A NEW NEPHEW!!!!
Elijah (Eli) Ray Aldridge was born this morning at 2:49. He was 6lbs 9oz and 20 inches long!
They were on there way to the hospital at 12:45, so he came quick!!
I will post pictures when I can.
I asked the new mom if she is still in pain, and she said "oh no, as soon as he came out I didn't hurt anymore" She is a Bigger Woman than ME!!
I love you Julie and can't wait to meet him!!!

Then they laid down this beautiful tile that is carried on from the dining room. I really do love it. But...I will deny it if he asks!

Natalie and her 1st birthday cake.
Natalie's 2nd birthday.
Celebrating her 3rd birthday at preschool.
Celebrating her 4th birthday at preschool.
Today we celebrated her 5th birthday at preschool. I don't know of many kids that get to have 3 years of parties at the same preschool.
Natalie got a cookbook for Christmas last year with an adorable Princess cake on the cover. She would tell me she wanted a High School Musical cake, then it would be a Camp Rock cake, then she would switch to this Princess cake. She decided on HS Musical. Then on Tuesday she said she really wanted this Princess cake. Well dear, your cake is going to be a HS Musical cake I am sorry. In steps Sue to save the day. She wanted to do something special for Natalie and she DID!! Sue made the cake last night, delivered it to us, and she just LOVED the cake! Her and Zachery practiced feeding it to each other so I am glad we got this picture taken!

Miss Emalie is learning new things all the time. Yesterday we were playing outside, she was in the princess car and I asked her if she wanted out. She grinned and shook her head no. I asked her again just to make sure I really saw that and she did it again. Then this morning she decided to use the phrase uh-uh. That's what the video is. AND she can use it in the proper context! The other adorable thing she did today: she was reaching for a cup of water she got told ah-ah, very nicely I might add, and she laid her head down on the couch AND CRIED! It absolutely broke her heart!
Other out of the mouths of babes:
We were loading kids in the car to enroll Natalie in preschool. She asked where we were going. I said "we are going to enroll you in preschool." She looked at me so funny and asked "what are you going to roll me up in?" I just laughed!

I have accidentally grew tomatos. And not just 1, so far I have counted 5! I am now offically calling myself a gardener! (with a green thumb!)
Zachery buckled up. Jeremey was looking at getting another tractor this year. Want to know what the MUST HAVE was: a buddy seat for the kids!
I performed farm wife duties by moving tractors, hooking up plows, bringing food etc...well Jeremey was in road gear following us and I asked Zachery if he was going fast or slow. He smiled and said "Daddy's going bunny." There's a bunny picture on the throttle for fast, and there is a turtle for slow. Now that is one pretty smart 2 year old!

Emalie learning just how good cherry limeades are-she didn't want to put down the cup. See the green cup of milk? She didn't want anything to do with the milk!
