Elam Family Christmas Picture 2011

We took this picture after we got home from church on Sunday morning. After we dressed in our pj’s and opened Christmas gifts. We had a great time.

This is what our house looked like for the Christmas holiday. The boys helped Tim and were very instrumental in the Cross and Tree designs. They are so smart.


Joshua’s Soccer Game on 9/12/09

We had a blast at the soccer game on Saturday. It was the first one for the fall season. He played against his best friend Moses’ team. It was hard not cheering for both teams. Joshua scored the only goal of the game. Andrew wanted to go out on the field and play so bad. Poor little guy.


I love how everyone is in motion in this shot. Moses is in the white shirt in the middle.







Joshua & Andrew

Here are a few pictures I took of the two younger boys over the last few days. Now that Tyler is a “teenager” he doesn’t care to be in the pictures.




Josh was dancing to the Black Eye Peas. (It’s a band Mom.)




He thinks he is grown.


Josh Scored a Goal

Saturday was Joshua’s 2nd soccer game. It was rather cool and windy outside. It had rained the night before so the ground was wet too. Joshua scored the second goal for his team. It is so much fun to watch these adorable children chase a black and white ball around the feild. They don’t have the rules or techniques down yet. So they all swarm the ball at once. It is too cute.

Here is a picture of Andrew being silly. We were playing with a wet wash cloth.

First Day of School

Today was the first day of school for the boys. Tyler started 8th grade and Joshua started kindergarden. They were both excited and nervous. Tim took Tlyer and I took Joshua. I was so anxious and worried for him. All the kids meet in the gym before school starts and the teacher walks them to class. He looked a little nervous when it was time for me to leave. He was such a brave boy. He didn’t cry. I was worried that he might.

I didn’t even pay attention to the fact that they both wore blue striped polo shirts. Too cute. Joshua said he had a great day when I picked him up from school. He is excited to go back. His teacher said he had a good day. One day down 13 more years to go.

Tyler said he had a good day too.

More Pictures of the Boys

Here are a few pictures of Andrew and Joshua. I took some of them yesterday and some of them this morning.

Here is Andrew during tummy time. He doesn’t really care for it. This is a great shot of him holding up his head. He has his other leg hiked up. He tries to get them underneath him. He resembles a turtle stuck on his shell. It is too cute.

In this picture Andrew is letting us know that he has had enough of playing on the floor.

Can you tell they are brothers? They are the spitting image of each other. Too cute.
