I am finally ready to let you know where I have moved...
When I first started blogging I was a little nervous putting my real name on the web for the world to see.  I was unsure how safe it was.  I am just really tired of accidently typing the wrong name and really want to just be me.

When I first met my husband he called me Elliemae.  My real name is Cherie (shur-ree).
My sweet Lil'D has the coolest name ever...Dash.  It is short for Daschel.  Yes he is named after a cartoon character.  It fits him perfectly.

I have created a new blog called Habadasherie.
I have imported most of my old posts there so I can have everything in one place.

I will no longer be posting as Elliemae.
Hope to see you at my new blog

Lil's first soccer game...

Lil'D started soccer today.  He was so excited to start!!  You might have to watch the video a couple times to find him.  They all have the number 1 on the back of their shirts.  He is the one that keeps touching the ball with his hands!

  • You're crazy
  • Shredded Wheat

You love putting s's on everything and adding an extra syllable:

My love for you overflows more and more each day. You are the happiest little boy I know. I am so very proud of you. Especially how well mannered you are. I don't even have to tell you to say thank you anymore. You just do it.

You are testing me right now by not listening as well as you could be, but I know that will change and it will be something else.

All my love,

Lil'Ds book pick...

Cars and Trucks and Things That Go by Richard Scary

I found this book at the swap meet a couple of months ago. I kept trying to get Lil'D to want to read it, but he always skipped it. I finally talked him into it. We have read through the entire book once. It took us two nights. Now it's all about who can find Goldbug first. Lil'D has memorized where he is on most of the pages. Lil'D says things like:

"Goldbug is really good at hiding."
"Where is that Goldbug?"

Lil'D didn't want halftime to be over. He wore Skyanne out!! They will both sleep good tonight!
