Outside Fun

The weather was perfect for sidewalk chalk this weekend! I joined in the fun and drew our little family! Jane had her fair share of fun with chalk as well!

Silver Dollar City

We went to Silver Dollar City on Friday. Ava loved all of the rides.
Jane loved seeing the lights...
...and eating snacks...
Ava's first roller coaster...she LOVED it!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a Happy Thanksgiving at the lake! Ava & Isabella had the privilege of eating on Grammy's china! It was a special treat!
....a delicious meal...
Ava & Isabella...Pilgrim & Indian
After our meal, the girls turned themselves into princesses (capes and all) and Grammy read stories.
The dinner table turned into a mega playhouse where the girls had a ball dragging every possible toy inside! It kept them quite entertained!
We ended our Thanksgiving day with baths, jammies, and lots of snuggles!

Our family has so much to be thankful for. This year we started the tradition of writing on leaves and hanging them on a tree every night at dinner. Ava had a great time doing it! Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble Gobble!

Mum and Papa

Mum and Papa were able to be together with all 4 Grandkids on Jane's Birthday. We had lots of fun! Ava managed to hijack Jane's new chair from Mr. Lee for the pictures!

We are thankful to have had such a fun Birthday weekend and can't wait to be together again at Christmas!

Jane Turns One!

Jane turned ONE on Saturday! It's hard to believe a year has gone by. We celebrated with a pumpkin party. First off...Jane and Ava had some cuddle time with Grandma Great. All of our family was able to be at the party which made it extra special.

After a game of "Jane-O" was time for cake! Jane enjoyed everyone singing to her....but I think she enjoyed the cake even more!
With a little help from Mommy...that cake was gone in a flash!

Aunt Lorena out did herself once again and made a beautiful "Pumpkin Girl" pinata! Jane took the first honorary swing... came her cousins...
We had a great time celebrating our sweet girl! She will always be my baby....forever and ever!!

Room Time Fun

Ava is part time Mommy and part time Razorback Cheerleader today. I peaked in during room time and overheard Ava telling her baby that they were "Loading up and going to TJ Maxx and Target." I guess she's heard me say that a time or two! ha! She's a funny girl!
...tucking Holly (and the soccer ball) in for naptime...
...ready to go...with ALL the essentials...

Fun on the Farm

Our friend Molly invited us to her beautiful farm yesterday. We had a ball riding in the mule and checking out the land and cows..there were lots of cows...even black and white "Chick-fil-a" cows...according to the kids. Ava had a turn driving (in Molly's lap of course) and thought it was the greatest thing ever!
....Giving Nacho, the donkey some love....
...the kids thought it was fun to give the animals their snacks...
Lily and Gertrude were especially hungry...and not the least bit shy!
Life on the farm sure is fun! Thanks, Molly!

Cookies & Candy Land

Grammy and Pappy came over on Saturday to watch the Razorbacks. Ava and Grammy decided to bake cookies. Ava poured and stirred. Next came scooping...she was so proud to "make" the cookies!
Ava methodically put dough balls on the stone....then rearranged them about 100 times.
While the cookies baked, we played a few rounds of Candy Land....and had fun being stuck in the Molasses Swamp and Cherry Pitfall FOREVER!!!
