Pictures tomorrow, when I am at my inlaws, but for now, I hope that you're all having a fantastic day.

After my mom shucked it all, I taught the little guys how to make corn husk dolls. We ended making a whole family, complete with Mommy with baby in sling. Click on the photo to see more!

Andrew, Rachel and I went out yesterday to spend some time together. I'm trying to make every moment count as the days draw near to the GA move. Rachel found an apple that was pink on the inside. Click on the picture to see more.
We are successfully moved out of the Watertown appartment, and Greg is setting up house in Columbus. He's also getting a jump start on the studying he has to do for his class, so that he can spend more time with us when we get there.
Grace will hopefully be able to go down to GA with me and stay for a few weeks. It will help soften the impact of the move for me, I think.
Elijah keeps getting cuter. Here he is in his saucer play station:
Mr Adorable, I tell you.
Precious little sleepy guy:
Andrew and Elijah generally get along really well, but that fuzzy, soft little head is just begging to be squeezed...

It's an LG 4400, and most of the numbers in there aren't backed up anywhere. I know, bad idea, but it's true. He's getting a new phone now because that one was insured, but we're definitely getting my phone and his new one backed up now. Anyway, the main thing is that we need it back. If you live in Watertown, please post a message here to let me know if you've seen it. If you live anywhere else, please, please: back up your phone.
A girl stopped by our house right after the movers left at noon and asked to use our phone. She was pretty shaken up and said that her brother had just punched her in the mouth. We let her use our house phone. She sat on the couch while making the call, next to my husband's cell phone.
About a half-hour after she left, we looked for the phone and it was gone. Since there's pretty much nothing left in our house, it didn't take long to look through our suitcases and realize that it was definitely gone.
We called Verizon to see what the time was of the last call from that phone was and it was 3:11pm, definitely after we found the phone missing. So we have verified that it was stolen and has been used, and the only person in the house since the movers was this girl (the phone was still on the couch after the movers left). Following is a description of the girl -- things we observed and things she told us about herself (so some of that -- like her name -- could be suspect)
Here's a description of the girl who (we assume) took it:
- Height: 5'4"
- Hair color: Medium to dark brown very straight, pulled back in low ponytail hanging to mid back
- Light denim skirt ending a few inches from knees
- Dark blue/navy short sleeved shirt
- Flat shoes (possibly dirty, light blue flip-flops)
- Swollen lip and cut chin (from being beat up)
- Uneaven pasty white skin
- Large scabs on knees and legs
- Brown (or hazel) eyes
- Receding chin
Things she said about herself:
- Name: Nichole
- Place of residence: Palmer St, Watertown, NY
- Goes to school at JCC community college
- Brother is a large guy 18 years old and a senior in highschool (probably Watertown High)

The movers are here today packing everything up that we don't already have in plastic bins (Greg bought a bunch of the bins since we'll be moving every few years or so now, and it's nice to be able to pack the important stuff yourself). The Army pays for these movers (your tax dollars at work!), which is really cool. I've heard stories of movers stealing and breaking some stuff, so we'll see exactly how good they were when we unpack. They do seem to be doing a very efficient job though.
Still can't believe we're actually moving...

Andrew loves to sleep with his feet up on something. We have the "roll bar" on the side of his bed, and we often find him like this:
This was taken two nights ago. Five minutes later, he looked like this:
