Welcome Back

It's been a long time since I've posted anything on here! While we have been very busy the last year, it has mostly been my procrastinating self that hasn't written anything. I'm going to try my hardest to start giving timely updates.

Elijah has been having a great year. He's growing so fast and turning into a wonderful boy. His days have been full of playing, swimming, crafting, and enjoying life. 

 Elijah Julian, age 3

 Assisting in Mothers' Day gifts

 Sleeping well (mostly) in his big boy bed

My life has mostly consisted of trying to keep up with Eli. Which is enormous fun and very tiring. When I find some time to myself, I've really been enjoying sewing and quilting.
 The quilt I made for our bed (7 months and 2000 2-inch squares later...)

 Eli's Optimus Prime Halloween costume I made (mask purchased - I'm not that good)

Eric is working hard at the office and at home. He and his dad built and installed our basement bookshelves. They did an outstanding job. We all vacationed in Denver in September, which included a Cardinals game.

 Ready to watch the Rockies beat the Cardinals (well, that's not what we were ready for, but it's what happened)

 The finished bookshelves, complete with books

 Another happy day in the Nies house
