Happy Halloween

This year, Ava decided she wanted to dress up as a doctor for Halloween. Grammy whipped up these spiffy scrubs. We LOVE them...she will get a ton of mileage out of them playing dress up.
Our first stop tonight was to visit Miss. Brenda. She invited the whole class over to pick out a special treat! Ava was more excited about seeing her teacher's house than she was about the candy!
Jane was Dr. Ava's patient. All I can say is "Poor Jane." She had more "check ups" today than any 11 month old should ever have to endure!
...lots and lots of shots...on her her ear...just about everywhere!
We spent the evening trick-or-treating with Isabella, the Bumble Bee and Nicolas, the honey pot! So Cute!!!

Tonight we went to cheer for the Eagles at their annual toilet paper game! For those of you who don't know...the fans throw out a roll of TP at the Eagle's first basket. It's been a tradition for a VERY long time! It makes for a big beautiful white mess!! Ava and Jane had fun watching the players as well as the Golden Eagle himself!
...Go Eagles!...

We ran into some is Jane with Mia, Mark, and Joy. No pictures of Scott tonight...he was behind the camera!

11 Months

Jane turned 11 months yesterday! I tried to get just a few pictures...but she is a speedy fast baby and found the quickest escape from my camera!
...Jane loves mirrors...
...and hates anything on her head...
We love her and can't believe she'll be one in a month!
"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God."

Such Big Girls!

Ava has been BEGGING us forever to sit at the bar for breakfast and lunch. I've always been scared that it's too was her big day! She did great and sat still. No broken arms or falls to report! Yippee!

Jane has also moved up in the world of eating....she thinks she's pretty hot stuff because she gets a bit of finger food when it's time to eat! She is cutting her fourth tooth and loves to have some independence at meal time.
What a big girl!!
