Santa Baby!
Ava loved Santa this year. I think she might have a slight crush on him even. She just talked and talked to him. She even complimented him on his outfit! Santa came to our house early this year because we are having to travel so much. She was very disappointed in the morning that Santa didn't stay to see her. She was truly upset!

Ava's First Day of School!

Here is a picture of her with her teacher!
Ava started school this Monday! She is going to a 3&4 year-old program at Bryan's school. I thought she would be a little hesitant the first day, but she wasn't. She is loving it and I love that Daddy is right there with her. It is a great school and I know she will have a great year!


Bryan's mom made this for Ava for her Birthday! Isn't is fabulous!
She had to wear one of her presents during cake time. She is so funny!

Blowing the candles out.
Here is a picture of the bouncer! I just love this invention!

She had a blast jumping all by herself before her party even started.

I just loved her cake. This woman did a great job!

Here are some of Ava's Birthday pictures. We decided to rent a moon bouncer thing and it turned out to be a hit! I recommend it for Birthday parties for sure! It kept the kids entertained the entire time. Most of Bryan's family and mine were able to make it. We are so blessed to have such amazing families! They are always there no matter what occasion. Ava is very loved by them all and it shows since many of them traveled far to be there.

It has been crazy around my house this past week so I haven't had a chance to post anything. Ava turned 3 on Friday, I can't believe it!!! I traveled over Thanksgiving Break to Bryan's parents and spent some time with them. We got back home on Thursday evening. I got up the next morning at 3:oo am and shopped 'til I dropped. Saturday was the big Birthday party! I am operating on very little sleep! I will post pictures soon, I promise. I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksging!

Here are the latest family pictures!

This is my favorite! I think this is so funny b/c this is how we see her act so often!

Here are our new Family Pictures. I want to give you a little background from our lovely pitcure day! It was freezing!!!! Ava was in a very bad mood! She continued to say "I'm so very cold". She cried and cired and screamed at us. We gave her every kind of candy you could imagine, and she still screamed. Our dog, Harley just ran around us the whole time so no pics of him. So, with that in mind, I thought they turned out incredible! What a day!
Here is Ava gettin' dwon.

She is having a blast!

We're #1

This is the only cheer picture I can post right now. My computer is having issues. I will try & post some more later.

Choc wouldn't let me take a picture of him so I had to post this! Love ya Choc!
Ava looks happy.

My husband got really into this wilderness, cooking by the fire thing. I think he looks so cute here!

Ava loved this tepee. Here is my sis, Kayla enjoying a smore.

We kept burning everything we cooked. It was so funny!

Kayla and Creighton! Happy 1st Anniversary!

These guys got way into the "starting a fire" thing. They had so much fun acting like kids!

I am just now getting around to posting these pictures, but we took them a couple of weeks ago. Bryan, Ava, our nephew, Choc, and I went to see my sister and her husband at a cabin they were renting. We had so much fun. We played, cooked by the fire, played in a real tee-pee. We had a blast and ended up with some really great pictures.

I am also posting some pictures of Ava cheerleading! She was hysterical! When they had their practices she wouldn't even move, but when it came to game day she got down! The only problem was that she had her own moves, not what everyone else was doing. It was so funny.

Ava can write her name all by herself!! Okay, I know it isn't perfect, but isn't it cute?! I am so very proud of her. She is starting a Preschool program on December 1st at Bryan's school and Bryan and I told her she had to learn how to write her name and she did it!! She is very excited about going to "Big Girl" school. Mommy has mixed feelings about it. I know she will love it, but where has time gone?! It is a very sad and happy time when you realize your baby isn't a baby anymore.

I wil have more pics in a couple of days of Ava's cheerleading camp!

Oh, It's Been So Long....

What a cute little puppy!
Ava at the pumpkin patch!

She loved being on this farm.

Ava and Uncle Creighton making pizza!

She doesn't look to happy about this.

Who's ready for Fall?????

Wow! I haven't blogged in so long. Well, so much had happened since this Summer. We all started school and then Baseball season began. Bryan and his boys did so well. They won Districts and then made it to the last game of Regionals when their season came to an end. I am really proud of them and can't wait until Spring season!

Most of you know that Bryan and I had been trying to add another little one to our family. We had a miscarriage last month and it was a difficult loss. So many of you prayed for us and I can't thank you enough for that. We are all doing well and we know that God has great plans for our family.

Little Miss Ava is turning 3 next month and I can't believe my little girl is growing so fast. Her little personality (and attitude) has just blossomed. We are getting ready for Halloween and Ava is a puppy. I am attatched random pictures of the past couple of months!!

Family Vacation

I am just now getting our vacation pictures off of my camera. We went to Hot Springs, Arkansas in July. We had so much fun! It was nice for just the three of us to get away for a while.

Here is Ava and her daddy in the downtown area.

Lovin' the Watermelon

I thought Bryan had gone crazy this Summer when he started selling watermelons all over town. His dad grew lots and lots and lots of watermelon, so we ate lots and lots and lots of watermelon!Sorry Mom for posting this picture. I love you.

Bryan is showing off his watermelon.
Ava looooooves it!
