8 months old

Coleson is 8 months old today and is just the sweetest thing ever.

Things he is doing now:
- he gives five and high five
- he give sugars
- he goes from the crawling position to the sitting position
- he eats 3rd baby foods
- he claps
- he loves Gerber Graduate snacks and so does Rascal

Abbey has her first softball tournament next weekend that we are excited about going to. I am anxious to see how her team does. She had good grades in her papers this week. We are so proud of her and hope that she will keep it up.

I am loving this cool weather. Coleson got to wear a jacket for the first time this morning. He looks like such a big boy. Abbey loves getting my camera out and taking pictures of her baby brother. Sunday, we are going to give up some of our time and support a great cause. We are participating in a walk for diabetes. It’s nice to do things for others sometimes and not always think about yourself. Dennis and I are trying to teach our kids the importance of this and that if you do something for others then they will do something for you in return.

I tired a new recipe last night and it was really good. Abbey loves soup so I knew she would enjoy it.

Santa Fe Soup:

2 lbs. ground beef
1 white onion
1 package taco seasonings
1 package dry ranch dressing mix
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can rotel tomatoes
2 cans white corn
1 can pinto beans
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 cup water

Cook until meat is done in skillet and drain. Put in a soup pot with remaining ingredients and let simmer for 1 hour. Serve warm with corn bread, sour cream, and chips.
