Here are some recent pictures of Isaac. He will be 6 weeks old tomorrow. Most people say he looks just like his Pappy Eisenhart. His hair was pretty blond when he was born with a bit of a reddish tint. I didn't really notice it that much until everyone started commenting on his beautiful red hair. It really does look red when he's outside in the sun. Carl's great grandfather was a twin and they both had RED hair. So.. we'll see if it stays. He has just started giving a few toothless smiles. He is so precious!

This was taken last week out on our deck.

I didn't post any July 4th parade pics and I know this is late but had to show this one of Ella waving her flags. She's a proud american!

I just took this picture so I would have one to blog. He is growing so fast!

Our church had our annual 4th of July picnic last weekend. Carl set up the tent and our kids camped out Friday night and we spent the day there Saturday enjoying food, friends, and freedom! Here are a few pictures of our wonderful church family.

Happy Independence Day!

My favorite baby!


Stephanie Phillips brought over a wonderful meal Monday evening. Here is her menu. It was delicious! I had never had couscous made like this and I loved it! It had grilled chicken, peas, shredded carrots and tomatoes in it. Yum!! She is an excellent cook. She made an amazing homemade dressing for the salad because she knows that's my favorite. Sorry, no leftovers. Thanks Steph!
