Christmas at the Lake

We had a Merry Christmas at the lake yesterday. The girls had a great day together!
...Ava enjoying the Advent candles...
Jane is getting over a double ear infection. She slept most of the day away and missed out on a lot of the fun. Poor Janie!
...Present Time...
The girls got some Play Mobile...Scott had more fun playing than the girls...ha!
The girls and their "Bzzzzz" they called them! They were both so giddy about having battery operated brushes! The thrill of this gift was so cute!
Family picture...Jane still looks half asleep (with some cute bed head)!
Jane finally opening her gifts....3 hours later!
Thanks to Grammy and Pappy for a special Christmas!!
We Love You! XOXO

Cousin Day

Ava and Isabella had a fun filled day together. Scott and Jeff took the girls on a Daddy/Daughter date to see The Princess and the Frog. Isabella came over afterwards to eat pizza and spend the evening with us.
After baths, all three girls got snuggly in their jammies and watched Polar Express until bedtime. Jane jumped right in for a few minutes of fun before going to bed.
Cute Cousins!

Nativity Bling

Ava added her special touch to the nativity today. A TinkerBell wand in the background and a pink sparkle ring from the Wisemen to baby Jesus. Ava said..."It's just perfect now!"

Shots & Check Ups

We had a big day of check ups for both girls! Jane did a great job getting poked from head to toe...not to mention 4 shots! eek! She weighs 18 pounds and is 27 inches long. What a big girl!
Poor Ava thought she was going for a check up and moral support for Jane's shots. She ended up getting her first round of "Big Girl" shots. Two pokes later, a few silent tears, and a sweet quivering chin...she was just fine! She did a superb job under pressure and made her Mama proud!

Christmas Parade!

Scott took Ava to the 2009 Christmas parade. This is just one of the things we love about living in a sweet small town. I stayed home with Jane ... she napped late and it was FREEZING outside. Ava and Isabella enjoyed the festivities together!

Sweet times with Pappy!
