Merry Christmas Sheldon! I hope you didnt spend Christmas alone!
Sheldon, I hope you made it where you were going....
Sometimes, certain destinations take a little longer to pass through. And sometimes, with the holidays and all, people aren't always home to receive little turtles! He might be hanging out with a postal service or some other department of people somewhere...
OH Poor Sheldon..Hope they kept him warm and fed him over the Holidays!!!!
Can't wait to see where he is!
I can't wait to see either!!!! I sure hope when Sheldon visits my house that I can make it to the mailbox before he starves!!!! (Our mailroom is only open during office hours!!!! Which SUCKS for me who goes to work at 6:45 and gets home 5:30+)
Any news on our little Sheldon???? I'd hate to have him spend Christmas AND New Years alone!
Poor Sheldon! Where are you???
SHELDON? Where are you Sheldon! It's been a long time...
I'm betting he's arrived and is partying with the postal dept...
I checked my mail yesterday just in case.... Im hopin he gets to come out and party on new years
Guess who came in the mail yesterday, all the way from Texas?
Looks like a whole box of newspaper!
Oh wait, there's a pretty box inside...
...with a head sticking out
Why it's our good friend Sheldon!
Yup, he passed the taste test! He can stay and play for a little while!
So Sheldon is safe and sound here in Canada! He says that Christmas wasn't too bad in the post offices. There were lots of other slow boxes and contents to party with (including my 3 packages that are still missing!) But he's glad he arrived just in time for New Years!
Tonight Eben wore his special turtle pjs in honour of Sheldon, and they practiced crawling before bed.
We've got lots of exciting things planned for the week!
YAY! I am so glad Sheldon arrived safe and sound!
How cute are they in "matching" pj's??
Happy New Year Everyone! Love Sheldon
Party on, Sheldon!!!! Have lots of fun with Eben!!!!
OMG thats the cutest hat!!! How sweet!!
I love the New year pic!!!
awwwww! I'm so glad That Sheldon is safe and sound in the arms of Eben!!! What awsome pics. It looks like he's having a ball! I love his party hat and Eben's Turtle Jammies!!! HAVE A GREAT TIME SHELDON AND EBEN!!
This is what we've been doing this morning - Nothing! Just feeling sorry for ourselves!
Eben's not feeling well at all today. So Sheldon will be coming with us to the doctor's in an hour.
Awww! Eben looks so out-of sorts!!!
Jen - I love the pics so far. Poor Eben. He looks icky.
Poor baby! Hopefully Sheldon will cheer him up!!
aw Jen, I'm sorry but that last picture totally cracked me up. I'm sorry Eben isn't feeling well. He looks like he wants to say something like "get this freaking turtle out of my hand and pick me up". Hope he feels better!!
OH EBEN! I just want to give him a kiss!
Today was a much better day for Eben and Sheldon!
We started with a walk to the store. We thought it would be fun to take the sled there, but all the snow was melting, so we just tried the sled out in the backyard.
Sheldon thought the snow was pretty fun so he made a little turtle hole, and a snowman.
In the evening we celebrated mom's birthday and went out for supper. Sheldon tasted a lot of crumbs. We didn't take pictures there, but this is us after.
Then we had to go to bed....but Sheldon and Eben just wanted to goof around!
Tomorrow we're going to Eben's Grandpa's retirement party, and to a secret destination. (Hopefully we'll make it there!)
Eben is such a doll and Sheldon looks like he's having a GREAT Time with you! I love seeing all these pics! I'm glad he was there to celebrate your birthday with you Jen. Look they are having so much fun Eben and him never want to go to sleep!
Awww What a cutie!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I Hope Eben is feeling better soon! I cant WAIT FOR SHELDON TO VISIT US!!
Such rosy cheeks and what a smile!
This morning Eben gave Sheldon a ride on his John Deere Gator.
Until he figured that the turtle was slowing him down!
He's so cute!
So much fun! I would have thought that Sheldon would have made a snow-turtle instead of a snowman!
Totally off the Sheldon topic... but I think Eben's Robeez are too cute!!
LMAO! He is so dang cute!!!
I'm sure glad you guys are having fun!
Jen, those are great!! I'm so glad that he's feeling better!
So Sheldon and Eben and I traveled to my dad's retirement party. Sheldon was great entertainment for us! However, I'm ashamed to tell you that this party took place in a little dingy bar, and although it's not a place where I'd normally take young babies and little impressionable turtles, I made an exception this time! (But there was no smoking allowed.)
While at this party, our great Canadian Hero, Wayne Gretzky, popped in to say hi, so we got this picture with him. (The lady in green is my mom.)
Then, the next day we went and visited all of Eben's grandparents and great-grandparents. (Two sets of each.) AND, we went to our mystery destination. Can you guess where we went? More pictures to come...
HEY no fair leaving us hangin like that you're as bad as Lindsey!!!!!!
Did you go to Niagara FALLS?
You left me hanging....no fair and my mom wants to know too!!!
GREAT PICS...Eben is such a doll and makes me smile each time I see him in your siggy and then to look at all these pics too!
Ang - that is my guess, too.
Eben looks like he is having fun with Sheldon!
Yup, you guys got it right!
We went to Niagara Falls! (Which also happens to be my birthplace.)
Here's Sheldon with the American Falls
and with the Canadian Falls
Here's Eben with Sheldon. Actually, this is almost a "spot the sheldon" picture. Can you see him in there?
I have to show you a picture of my Grandma (Eben's Great-Grandma) with Eben and Sheldon. She was such a good sport going with me and posing with the two of them all over the place. She said she wasn't scared of dropping Eben over the side, but was terrified that Sheldon would slip out of her hand and try going over the falls on his own. Also, she's wearing Eben's hat because she forgot her own and it was really cold and windy out!
Your grandma was Sheldon's protector! Too cute!
I love seeing pics of our babies with our grandparents. It touches my heart.
I see Sheldon in a glove!!
That is absolutely adorable! YAH! I got it right! My mom said, no that is people behind them blurred out! and I said..NO NO, that is the falls behind him..i just know it! LOL! Too cute Grandma was all worried about Sheldon! GIggling! You take such great pics and Sheldon is having a blast with you! How awsome! And as always..EBEN IS ADORABLE!
Jen, LOVE LOVE LOVE the niagra falls pics. Wow that is awesome.
Love love love love All the pics!!!!!
So Sheldon has been sent on to another Munchkin's house....watch for him next week! You never know where he'll turn up!
But while we wait, here a few more pics of our visit.
No visit is complete without the requisite trip to Sheldon Street/Drive/Avenue/Blvd
Eben and Sheldon safely tucked away in the car seat - on the way to our weekly trip to Home Depot (Sheldon learned lots there!)
Eben and Sheldon horsing (turtling?) around one last time
Sheldon taking his send-off bath
Sheldon with his little turtle groupies, imparting eternal words of wisdom before he leaves
We really enjoyed our visit with Sheldon! We can't wait to hear more of his wacky adventures!
Those are great pics!!! I can't wait until we get him! I am going to have to see if we have a Sheldon St/Rd/Ave... around me!!!
So cute....looks like he had a great time!
Sheldon, I hope you didn't get lost!!!
