Weekend trip!

Back in December, my parents mentioned that Disney Live! was going to be in Oklahoma City and that they thought Ava might like it. They got tickets for us and the weekend finally arrived. We didn’t tell Ava that we were going to the show, just that we were going to see Poppa for the weekend.
Saturday we did some shopping. Ava enjoyed some play time at the various malls. She was a happy kid to run free!IMG_1057
This little guy started getting sick on our way there Friday. He started coughing a really ugly cough and poor guy does NOT feel good this week. He has a horrible cold. It was just beginning though over the weekend and he was such a good boy, even though he didn’t feel well!IMG_1061 
My parents with the kids before we left to see Disney Live!IMG_4452 Me and my babies!!! I straightened Ava’s hair and think it makes her look soooooo different!!IMG_4453 Another look at her hair! We had lunch at Freddy’s and it was YUM!IMG_1069 
My parents and kids again right before the show startedIMG_4457_picnik Ava was SO excited for the show and to be Snow White! It was so funny – there were lots of little girls dressed up as various princesses, and when they’d pass others, they’d all stare at the other and give them the once over! Ava kept saying “look Mom! There’s Belle!” or whoever we happened to pass. So funny!IMG_1072 IMG_4458 She doesn’t look excited here at all, but she was so enthralled with the show!IMG_1080
We saw Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!IMG_4463_picnik And Cinderella!IMG_4467_picnik And Beauty and the Beast!!IMG_4472_picnik IMG_4473 And Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy were there too!!!IMG_4475_picnik
It was so fun to see Ava so excited about seeing some of her favorite characters! It was definitely a fun weekend!!!

Documenting life

This has been a busy week for us. I'm finding it hard to find the time to blog these days but so desperately love having the record so I'm going to try harder!

Tuesday I had a follow up appointment with a doctor to check my finger. I got a blood blister like bump on it while I was pregnant which my dr said was normal. It didn't go away after Reed was born so he sent me to the dermatologist. That doctor really didn't know what to make of it so he measured it & told me to come back. Tuesday morning he still didn't know what it was so he biopsied it!! I had no clue going in that morning I'd be having a minor surgical procedure requiring stitches!!!!

I'll spare you the unbandaged photos but I have a V shaped hole on the side of my finger. Thankfully today it has quit hurting & I will go back next Friday to have the stitches removed & hopefully get some answers about it.

Tuesday was also my Mom's birthday! We had dinner & cupcakes to celebrate!

Yesterday was my MIL's birthday & I thought a birthday e-card with her grandbabies might be more fun than just a regular card!

That being said, I am LOVING the Red Stamp App! I'm sure you're seeing it on lots of blogs but it is really awesome!!!

Ava's class is participating in a bake sale to collect money for the local Ronald McDonald House. After using their facilities, I am a huge advocate for the center & was excited to be able to take part in this. I made these funfetti cake pops and love how they turned out!!! I can't wait to make some more!

I think that's it! We have a fun weekend planned & I'll be excited to share about that soon!

A day with friends

This past weekend, some of my favorite girls and i met up to spend the day together on Saturday! We met at Kristy’s house and spent the afternoon letting the kids play and talking away!

Candace and Jill met up at Jill’s house and came the rest of the way together, while I met the girls with my kiddos. Holli met up with us with her boys and it was so much fun! Kristy’s sister, Julie, also stopped by and kept us laughing like crazy!

Here are the ladies, minus Holli, who had already left. :( LOVE these girls!IMG_0901 

All of our precious babies – it was fun seeing them play together!!IMG_4441From L to R: Kinley, Ava, Sophie, Ava, Reed, Keira, Madox, Cooper and Trevin

Project 366: Weeks 1 & 2

Three years ago, I did Project 365 and loved having a picture for each day of Ava’s full year of life! I wanted to do it again. It was a little tedious posting every day like I did last time, so this time I’m going to do it a week at a time. You can check out our 2009 Project 365 here. Since this year is leap year, this is my Project 366! From here on out, I’ll post these weekly, but for this first one, I’m going to do the first two weeks of 2012!
