I love sweets especially icing off of cakes! I love staying home and being a mom even on the days Ava is grouchy and has no nap!

La...La...La..La (Ava Meets Elmo)

This past weekend we attended a B-Day Party and Elmo was the featured guest. Suprisingly Ava walked right up to Elmo and introduced herself.

Rock a Bye Baby

Ava loves to be mommy! Rock a bye Baby!

Ava's First Haircut

Ava gets rid of her fuzzy wuzzy hair!! I have always heard that if you want your baby to grow thicker hair, cut it! well...I wanted and need for Ava to grow hair. We have lots of bows but no hair to fit in them. This hair cut was about a month ago and yes, Ava has worn a clip bow two times with a little bribing. Every since wearing her antennae as a "hat", we have been calling bows hats in order for them to stay on. This has worked somewhat.

Porch Memories

Ava and I went on our usual morning walk. She wasn't ready to come back in so I decided to give her a "little field trip" to our front porch to discover our pumpkin, mum and well...she found a rock. Every since this day our outside ritual consists of smelling of the mum, patting the pumpkin and ringing the door bell. By the way, Ava originally had on a pair of matching jeans, but got them wet from the park so I stripped her down into these bloomers.

Prestoncrest Fall Carnival

We got into the Halloween spirit last month, yes, I am a little behind with my blogging, but better late than never, right? I love this picture because if pictures could talk than you know what they would say,"Where is my mommy, right Macie?" Thatcher and Ava have mastered how to turn away from the sun. I think I understand why people pay photographers big bucks for photographs, getting three babies to sit still, nevermind trying to get them to look at you simutaneously takes skill that I haven't mastered. .....Thatcher the Lion.....Macie the Bumblee.....Ava the Monarch Butterfly

Reid and Hallie---My Cousins

Fall pumpkins are the best, especially in a big patch. Hallie and Reid are real troopers when it comes to posing with the pumpkins. I have several pics. of them year after year. They are just as adorable as last year, only a little bigger. Hallie is 6 and in the first grade and Reid is almost 4. Ava is crazy about them and vice versa.

My Little Monarch

Ava loved her costume so much that I decided to let her wear it pre-Halloween to Nanna's house. Her Aunt Leslie, my favorite photographer, snapped some good ones of Ava on Nanna and Pappie's front porch. Ava's fondness of pumpkins has been a fall pasttime, let's see...patting the pumpkins, throwing the pumpkins, and yes, smelling the pumpkins. With all of Nanna's pumpkins on the front porch, we were able to keep her happy--just one little thing, no worries about throwing, nanna's pumpkins were too big. "Ava, can you flutter like a butterfly?"
