this and that - UPDATED AGAIN

SECOND UPDATE:

Please keep sweet baby Stellan in your prayers. I visited him in the hospital yesterday (Saturday) morning and had breakfast with his mommy, and was blessed to see his smiling face. He converted into SVT just before I got there, and has been in it since. So he's really been going downhill since then. Pray for strength, peace, endurance, and healing. Also pray for his family as they struggle with a long list of emotions during this stressful time.

UPDATE:

For those of you who have yet to guess on how big around this tree is (or for those of you who would like go make another guess), here are two pictures to give you a bit more frame of reference.



Oh, and I survived the night in the tent!

ORIGINAL POST:




First, I wanted to share a photo Aaron took last weekend when we were having our family photos taken.



Next, I'd like to show you what happens when I get desperately bored while Camille is off playing with Grandpa and I'm left with a camera in my hands.




This is what Camille does when she sees a phone (or anything that resembles a phone, such as a calculator).



And this is Camille watching Grandpa drive away on a quick run to the store.


And this? This is the tent I am supposedly sleeping in tonight in the back yard...


...under the stars tree.


Yes, that tree.


Anyone care to venture a guess as to what the circumference of that rather large cottonwood tree is? Post your guess in the comments, and I'll go measure it tomorrow (if I can find a measuring tape long enough).


Wish me luck in the tent!

Are you practicing for your upcoming camping adventure? And in that case, is Camille sleeping in the tent with you?! I'm going to guess 10 feet or so... Um, and how CUTE is Camilsita in that foto with the "phone"!
