We took Eli to the Rainforest Cafe at MOA for dinner. He LOVED all of the animals!

Mommy got free Twins Fest tickets from work, so we decided to make it a family day, and headed down to the dome on Saturday. Eli is not much for car rides, but luckily he slept almost the whole way to the cities. He looked a little sleepy when we first got to the dome.
He cheered up real fast, and had a great time!
We bought him a cute little Twins backpack, and had Tony Oliva sign it. Tony enjoyed meeting this young Twins fan!
Chad spyed Bert Blyleven as he made a real quick appearance to one of the booths. No one else noticed him, so we grabbed him real quick on his way out of the dome, and asked if he'd take a picture with us. Very nice guy, we were very thankful for him to pose for a minute!!!
Eliott was getting hungry, and waited patiently by the door as we got everything situated to leave. Now we're off to the Mall of America for some dinner!

Auntie Lori gave Eli his first set of crayons for Christmas. He loves to use them. Unfortunately, he also loves to eat them!!!! We need to keep a pretty close eye on him while he is preparing his masterpiece, so we don't have a bunch of blue molars again!

Eli and Daddy watching another sled-full take off!
Mommy was sitting in the front of the sled and took this shot right before take-off!
I love my little sled!
Here they goooooo.....
Here they goooooo.....
Yesterday we spent the afternoon at our neighbor's house sledding down some big hills, and having a little fire. We roasted hot dogs, and drank hot chocolate. It was a lot of fun. Eli LOVED sledding!!! When we were done at the big hill, we went to a different neighbors and took runner-sleds right down the road! What a fun day!!!

We spent last Friday-Sunday up at Platte Lake with some great friends of ours. We had an awsome time! Our cabin is not usable in the winter, so we stayed with our great neighbors/friends. We also visited with other neighbors who had some more great friends of ours staying with them. Some of Brenda's famous egg-rolls, Jack's biscuits 'n gravy, a bath in the sink, and lots of laughs and great company. We were happy to be snowed-in until Sunday!
