I have been behind on my blog and forget some of the things I want to blog about. So once again this will be a short post.

Some highlights from the week include playing Alhambra Friday night with friends and finally finishing Wall-E after three or so tries. Our DVD player and computer are on the fritz and are deciding on their own when to work and not to work. Good thing we'll be out of debt soon! Yes, we could live without a computer, but we don't have to, so that will be a sooner-than-later purchase.

Yesterday we watched our friends' kids while they went to a Dave Ramsey seminar. During that time Lee took the two older kids and Clark and Cal to a kid party thing at the Pippin Youth Center on base. They had a great time, and I was able to keep plugging away at the laundry.

Jennie pointed out to me that some of my photos are cut off--and I've since noticed too (thanks Jennie!). I re-uploaded some pictures as a smaller size, but that didn't help. I am going to have to try the smallest upload size next time.

And some Elden news, he had his 6 month check up on September 11th. We weighed 12 pounds 2 ounces! He also got his 6 month shots. (Hmmm...I am wondering if I already put this in a previous post.)

For Lee's birthday his co-workers at the 43rd gave him a gift certificate to a local Mexican restaurant, El Jimador. It was really good!

Tomorrow is our 7 year anniversary! It seems like we've been married for awhile, and 7 years is a good chunk of time. But it still seems that we haven't been married that long. And we haven't. With seven moves, a couple of flat tires, five kids, and finishing "school", it's been quite the adventure! Happy Anniversary Lee!

Happy Anniversary! Wow!! You have had a busy 7 years! I can't believe you have had 7 moves. You might not have to re-load you photos...have you tried changing your blogger template? You could try Herbert, jellyfish, or simple II. If you do these you can't have a cute background~but you can have larger photos. You might what to just preview it? You just go to customize and pick a new template and preview them. I hope you get to have a fantastic day tomorrow and do something fun.

On your pictures, your margins are not set right, you need to increase your margin size to include the whole picture. If you go here and scroll down to the bottom where you see blog tutorial she will guide you in how to do it. That is what I did for mine.

Your kiddos have the brightest smiles! And, tell Elden "Great JOB"! How did he do on his shots? Eli was so upset about the shots... well, the nurse didn't do really well, it was more of her faults, she was doing every single shot one by one very very slowly and she told me to pick up Eli after she thought she was done, and I was like, "where's his bandages?"... we have to take him somewhere else next time.
Happy birthday Lee and happy anniversary to you both! Now you have just reminded me how long I have been back from my mission :)

Happy Anniversary you two! I remember how fun it was to go to your wedding and I can't believe it was really that long ago!!! Wonder what the next 7 years will bring?? Hopefully at least a new computer!

Happy Anniversary! You have been through a lot together in those years. FIVE KIDS! Wow! COngrats!

So, if all goes well, I'll be a military wife as well. I blogged about it. Mine won't be quite as tough as yours, but we're really excited. You'll have to give me tips for keeping it all together. :-)
