a pretty good one here, too. eli is just about to ask me if that's a log or a giant squid in the river.
after all the difficult pictures with eli, the older kids settled down and we got this one in front of the tree. but, we couldn't use this one as our christmas card because photo shopping eli in would just be wrong.
of course eli is all smiles while daddy is holding him. he's on a huge daddy kick right now, spewing "daddy" hundreds of times a day. sometimes he sings "daddy, daddy, daaaaaaaaaadyyyyyyy" and other times he shouts it at the top of his lungs....."DAAAAAADY!!!" yes, it's cute. yes, it's extremely annoying. yes, i really like to hear it, still.
