In an effort to save money, I have been clipping and printing coupons! So far I have found free Quiznos subs, a free water bottle, $10 worth of free Kraft brand foods and a free 2 liter of Dr. Pepper. (Plus, tons of samples of foods and other products...which come with a coupon!) It is so much fun to hand over the coupon and walk out with something FREE!!! So, today when I found the $5 off Huggies diapers and another for $3 off Huggies diapers I was so excited! Plus...you can print 2 of each from coupons.com!!! So, if you are a mom or soon to be a mom to a little one...it's worth it! Even though we use cloth diapers around home, we do use disposible when we are somewhere for the day or overnight! AAAAAAHHHH! I am so excited about these coupons!

Elias is celebrating 8 months already! It seems like he was just born yesterday...yet like he has been part of our family forever! Elias has been very stuck on mom lately.
He is so close to crawling. He leans forward from sitting and stays on his hands and knees for awhile, rocking back and forth. Eventually he ends up on his tummy and goes in circles until he gets what he wants.
And his expressions...they are so funny. He has so many new faces lately....he puts his lips out and his eyebrows down....or he grunts while making a totally hilarious, unexplainable face. He kid is a hoot! He seems to always wear a smile or be laughing! Even while he is crying (sometimes)!
He loves food! He eats basically anything we give him...but his favorites are sweet potatoes and pears.
He really enjoys watching his brother play...especially when Corbin plays "peek-boo" with him. He likes to get his hands on anything and everything. Corbin will give him one of "his" toys so he can get back the toy Elias has or he will just rip it from his little fingers. He also enjoys playing with mommy's jewelry...which isn't really worth wearing anymore...and hair.
He makes lots of noise, but no real words yet. Sometimes he will say "ma ma ma ma" or "da da da da".
He has started pulling himself up on furniture...which is accompanied by bumps on his head from losing his grip!
He doesn't like to be left alone in a room, and makes sure we know it!
And he still doesn't sleep through the night! (So, neither do mom or dad.)
We love our little snuggle bug lots and lots though! We thank God for him and the joy he brings to our family!

Last Monday through Wednesday, Joel, Elias and I went to the Pastor and Wives Retreat! (Corbin got to stay home with Gma Cathy.) It was so relaxing! We were able to do whatever we wanted for 3 days!!!
Before we left for home, we ate at Applebees....and enjoyed a dessert! We let Elias have the leftovers!

Call me crazy...it's ok...I don't mind. I found this idea on a blog and decided that it would be fun to try. You take 1/4 cup popcorn kernels.
Place in microwave on popcorn setting (no idea how long that is...probably the same as you would normal pop it for).

Corbin & Shay needed naps before we headed to the wrestling meet. They both fell asleep while watching Cars!
