Where to Start?

...might as well start with a picture of my 3 cute boys!

It's me again. I, apparently, took a little blogging hiatus, but I'm back and remourseful about my time away. We've been having a lot of fun around here, and I hate that I haven't taken the time to share/document it all, but I'm vowing now to try and do better.
We're really enjoying ourselves! Life is good! I have two happy, healthy kiddos that are getting funnier by the day!
Sawyer likes to tell me knock-knock jokes as he poops and I sit and wait to wipe his hiney.
Eli likes to jump off of everything after he warns me with his version of "One, Twoooooooooo, Three, Jump!" He does this in the swimming pool, off the porch, off other people's tall porches, etc.

A few highlights of my days around here right now are my conversations with Sawyer Williams. He is a character and a half, and I don't think he misses much! When asked at church last week where his daddy works, he said, "in Troy." They asked, "What does he do in Troy?" Sawywer said, "He makes money." Another highlight is watching Eli talk to the birds, frogs, bugs, etc. He says, "Hey, Bird! Hey!" or "Hey, Frog, Hey!" OVER AND OVER AGAIN (in the sweetest, deep voice I've ever heard!) He gets down at eye level, so he makes sure they see him if he's talking to a frog or bug. For birds, he runs after them. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVE THAT BOY!!!! I could look at him all day and be entertained! He's also learned the word "no!" and is a huge fan!
Me: "Eli, go throw it away."
Eli: "No!"
Me: "Eli, Do you want a spanking?
(Eli is getting LOTS of spankings these days. I hope he'll realize pretty soon that I would appreciate cooperation!)

We've been busy with Bama Jam, Sawyer's first swim lessons, our 6th anniversary, VBS, Father's Day, a trip to Hartselle, lots of days in the swimming pool (big ones and kiddie pools), and Eli trying to potty-train himself since my last post. I'm not sure what to think about that! He goes to the potty a lot, and he tee-tees and poops like a champ, so I guess I should just dive in head first, but I wasn't really prepared for all that. He's only 20 months old. We'll see!

Playing with Turner Weinman in Decatur -Turner has a new sister too, but I failed to get a picture of her!

My little Dumpling-Tater Face! :)

Swimming Lessons! Glad we did it! Sawyer loved it! He's not exactly a fish yet, but he's getting there!

Don't they look innocent here? :)

SO glad he's put up with me for the past 6 years! :) I look forward to many, many more!
