Getting this thing caught up

These last few weeks leading up to Christmas have been SO busy! We are on the go, go, go. Everyone gets out of school on Friday for Christmas break, and I’m taking a week off of work and we cannot wait!

I feel so behind on so many things on this blog so I think I just need to do a big ole catch up to get us up to date. Then I can MAYBE stay caught up?

Halloween came and went. Ava wanted to be a rock star and Reed wanted to be a fireman. Easy enough.IMG_3313IMG_3315IMG_3301 

Reed didn’t want to trick or treat at first but he finally got a little less scared. At every door, he would run up and stand behind Ava. It was so cute. I guess he felt protected behind her! IMG_3323

We finally finished up Ava’s four rounds of getting cavities filled. We are PRAYING we have NO MORE! IMG_3502

The last two rounds were really tough on her. The 3rd one, the doctor accidentally got a blood vessel in her cheek when he was giving her the numbing shot. She swelled and hurt pretty bad after that visit. IMG_3509

Ava also started having spelling tests at school. She’s done very well on the ones she has had so far!IMG_3550

Ava has homework every night now and she gets very frustrated when I make her correct letters or numbers are backwards. We have learned that she and her daddy mesh much better when it comes to sounding out words and reading. I can handle the numbers and spelling. IMG_3381

I will NEVER get sick of photos of my babies sleeping!!!!IMG_3378  

I will also never tire of the sweet moments where these two really do love each other!!!!!IMG_3578

We had our first snow of the season in November!! And then it got warm again… IMG_3611  

My brother came into town one weekend and picked the kids up from school. He then sent me a pic of them having an ice cream treat!IMG_3656

Ava has had a Christmas tree in her room for several years. This year when we got it out, Reed got really upset he didn’t have one. Ava told him that he could have hers in his room until we could get him one. Some days she really makes mature choices!IMG_3677

Zach and I celebrated our 8th anniversary! IMG_3738

We had Thanksgiving with both of our families! IMG_3761

Ava asked for the turkey leg and she did pretty good with it!IMG_3781 IMG_3782

We have made good use of our Christmas wear since December rolled in! IMG_3806

I take any chance I can to let my baby snuggle me. He is growing up so fast and these moments happen so rarely! IMG_3811

We told the kids the news about the baby after they were out of school for their Thanksgiving break. Ava couldn’t want to go back and tell her friends. She asked for a copy of my ultrasound pics to show them. Her teacher texted me this photo of her sharing her news! IMG_3840

On the night of Zach’s Christmas concert, he had to stay at school and since we had to be back there so shortly after I got off work, we just went and had a quick dinner at Chick-fil-a. IMG_3859

Reed still likes Mickey Mouse, especially when a new one is on. He was excited to snuggle up with his daddy and watch a new one a couple of weeks ago.IMG_3901

This kid. That is all. IMG_3947

The kids have an Advent devotional every morning and gather in the school foyer. I got a text with this photo of the kiddos sitting together last week! IMG_3975 

Ava’s class sang one morning and we all went to watch her! IMG_4044IMG_4037 

They also sang at the Holiday Open House at our public library yesterday! She won’t look at me while she performs!IMG_4112

Last week we also did one of our favorite holiday traditions – we went and rode the Holiday Express at the local park. We love going and riding the train to look at all the lights they have up. The kids love it especially, even though Ava’s face says otherwise!IMG_4015

So. This is a LONG post but I feel like it catches us up on the most important things that have happened! Now – to stay caught up!
