OBX!



Well, it is one week till we go on vacation to the Outer Banks with all of Mike's family. We are so excited for them to come to the East Coast. We are renting this huge house at the Outer Banks. We are staying in a little town called Duck, NC. It is a great town! So we have been trying to prepare Ellie for her time at the beach. In this picture she was discovering sand and loving her new sand toys. We also have gotten her a lifejacket for the pool etc... She seems to be obsessed with water. We have to stop at every fountain at the mall. Anna just kind of goes along with whatever which is so great! In this picture she is asleep at the beach. She is so sweet. She is laughing all the time and she loves it when Ellie tickles her. Today, Mike suggested getting out the exersaucer to she see if she was big enough for it. She did pretty good in it. I think I am going to save it for awhile though cause I really want her to not get bored of it to quickly. Tonight, we went to CVS and bought 30 12 packs of coke products. They were having a huge sale......5 packs for $11. We mainly stocked up for youth group, but we are keeping some for us at home. It equaled 18 cents a can! The CVS people thought we were crazy cause you could only by 10 at a time. So Mike would go buy 10 drop them off in the car and then go back in for more. We did this at the Wake Forest CVS and the Rolesville CVS. The Shelton's are always up for a good deal. Tomorrow is church etc... I am excited as Journey is really growing and each week is really awesome. Ellie loves her teachers. We taught her to say "Paul"... he is one of her teachers that she thinks is pretty cool. I will be next door in Anna's room. I am in the nursery every week during the second service. It has been a good way to meet people and other mom's with babies. I still think Anna is the best though by far! Anyways, blessings upon you all!
