Eli is almost FIVE!

Eli will be five years old on December 23. We've decided these five years deserve a BIG celebration. We're having a Birthday Party for Eli on Dec. 31 and we're inviting everyone who has been in Eli's life since his birth. It's been a wild ride.

So, since you read his blog, you are a member of his team and we want to invite you. If you haven't received an invitation it is only because I don't have your address. So send me an e-mail with your addy and expect your invite soon.

Eli on KRMG... Prepare For The Cute

Elijah was at LaFortune Park this afternoon to talk on-air with Joe Kelly from KRMG AM740. Joe and the staff of Make-A-Wish were in their second day of collecting donations for the annual fundraiser, and I'm pretty sure they made their goal of $200,000. That doesn't mean it's too late for you to donate! They've decided to send Eli to Hawaii sometime in 2012. (Hopefully they'll decide we can go with him; I'll keep you posted.)

Eli got to look inside a police patrol car, and he talked with several officers, then went right up to a real helicopter and poked his head inside! Then it was time to talk on the radio, and Eli turned on the charm big time. Jeff Summers, CEO of Make-A-Wish Oklahoma, has given Eli the nickname "Hollywood."

We also recorded a "Story Of Light" which has been running on KRMG all this week. We didn't know it at the time we recorded it, but it was actually HILARIOUS. Take a listen by clicking on this link, then scrolling down to the list of names and clicking on Eli's:

We have another ear tube surgery on Monday. No big thing, right? But he'll be under general anaesthetic, and he only weighs 26 pounds, so it makes me nervous. Pray for Eli!
