~and you gotta love Gap pants! Especially when they are on sale!
~who else is having a great sale??? I must not look.
Oh, Christmas is over can't believe it! Having my & Paul's family over for Christmas as always was fun and went by too fast. Everyone has spoiled us..even Dinah our doggie. Much yummy food to eat. The kids had fun opeing presents and mot knowing what to do with themselves. One thing(just one?)I did not get to was--> not getting to bake this new cookie recipe...all I need to say is the main ingredients included brownies, peanut butter, rice krispies & marshmallows...and now I will have to put it off until April! I am determined to go on a diet until my birthday(with a quick hiatus on Heart day). Yeah we'll see!
ahhhh! I still have yet to finish my shopping! Well, this weekend hopefully....on the plus side I have been getting awesome deals on gifts with 50% off sales.
We went to see Santa and Avery was not having it. I need to post the photo- so funny. She is screaming and Bryce looks unaffected as my friend Pamela put it. Bryce asked for a Lego pitstop thingee that is like for ages 7+. Paul is oh so excited about the 500+ pieces. I am excited about the perfect fit for avery's mouth. Did we try to talk him out of it...oh no, we went and bought it from Santa.
Hope you are finishing up last minute to-dos!
must say....Welcome to the world Ava!!!
tree update: not too good, but still looks nice!
I forgot about posting this pic~ it cracks me up with the bows she put on her sippy. btw, the unwrapping is from my friends' kids and mine annual Christmas exchange. They gave us the best gifts!
why does the preview look better than the actual post?
where are you? We went to 3 tree farms the first weekend in December and we could not find one tree that was our type !! We really wanted a tree..so as the sun went to sleep, we headed to Home Depot for our tree. Bryce was excited to decorate. I love the ornaments that I used to have on my tree growing up. My mom now has a tree that rivals any Festival of Trees tree, so a few years ago I had taken all my favs. Here is one that my parents had when they were newlyweds. Somehow Avery has let the tree be, so everything is still intact...now how long will the needles last?
There is so much to do around town! This year was Avery's first for riding the pink pig..still Rich's Pink Pig(sorry Macy's). Last weekend we had fun at Stone Mountain's Holiday lights extravaganza. yum kettle corn! It was another mild night...I love it!
-walking in the tall trees, going where the wind goes...
I will never get used to the time change. and I will never be happy about it- until spring comes around again. When I get home from work and we all go outside to play some, the sun is already setting! Oh well, we had fun lining up all the toys and Avery laughing in her swing. I can't wait until we can chase Avery around the yard. She is not a big fan of crawling in the grass so much, but she is all about putting it in her mouth.
Hooray Thanksgiving! Happy days off work and getting to eat eat eat!!!!!!!!! I am so thankful I get to spend time with my family. I just wish all my extended family could be together!
hooray...no jackets at the park! The weather almost warranted short sleeves for me by the time we left. I think my favorite leaf color is yellow- but man the red leaves are awesome too! I was happy we had such nice weather...I do hope we get some rain this week though, we need it!
Here we are at the park by the Chattahoochee. I tried to get my babes in shots together by the river, but Bryce had another agenda.
I really like these-
took me how long to make it. Well...here it is. I have read so much that is of great interest, so for me to step up to the plate isn't quite that easy..so to type.
I have two lovely children that will grace this blog. But what content??? We shall see. I guess what ever comes to me at the time. Maybe the humor will show through my mistakes in grammar- ha!
one of my favs from this summer...
here is avery at the park. One of the last warm days I suppose.
I hate that it is getting cold...putting on socks makes me sad. BUT there are such wonderful things that come with the colder months- the holidays, hugging with layers, & hot chocolate(with tons of whipped cream).
enjoy your day!
