Catching Up

Ok, so obviously I have a lot of catching up to do. We STILL do not have internet at our house so I am still dragging behind on the blogging, but please bear with me as I am about to upload my longest blog entry ever. This weekend we went to Abilene for our nephew's 4th birthday party and Casey's Grandma's 75th birthday party. We had so much fun, but the weekend flew by too quickly as usual. We enjoyed getting to go to church at Pioneer Drive and visit briefly with all our sweet friends whom we miss so much. Here are some pics from Boone's birthday party. The air castle was a big hit!

Avery could bounce all day. She loved falling down while saying "uh oh" and bouncing around.

If you are wondering why Avery is not wearing pants in this picture, it is because she had a disaster in the front yard.
It all happened here.... if you look out from our front porch, this is the view. Avery was pushing her toy car around and insisted on going across the road. Once she was on the other side, I picked up the car to carry it back and it made her sooo mad. She threw herself down and started throwing a fit. Soon I realized that part of the reason she was crying so hard was that she had thrown herself down right in a sticker patch! OUCH! The poor thing.

I know the stickers are hard to see because they are almost the same color as Avery's pants, but there were 88 stickers on the back of her pants! Good thing she had on a diaper. Hopefully she learned her lesson.
We went to Amarillo a couple weekends ago for a Ranch Rodeo. Aver was all over the place.

She is modeling this puffer vest in front of a mirror. What a girl :)

Sleeping with dad - how cute.

Posing once again!

Now for some pictures of the new house. We have enjoyed it so much already. My parents and Pop are coming to have Thanksgiving with us on Thursday. We are excited to host our first meal in the new house.

New house

Well sorry to disappoint everyone, but I do not have photos of the new house just yet. We do not have internet at our new house (and yes, I am dying without it) so I just wanted to tell everyone that we are moved in and loving our new house. Despite no internet or satellite yet. It is so much bigger than our duplex and everything is so nice. I will get pics posted as soon as possible!

Morning Fun

Avery is sooo much fun in the mornings. She always wakes up in the best mood and is ready to play! Please excuse most of these pictures as she is in her pajamas and has bed-head hair. I just wanted to show you how fun and sweet she is when she wakes up. I am so glad that I get to experience this happy part of her day all week.

She LOVES her "car" and rides or pushes it around throughout the day. I need to get her another one when we move into our new house and have more room.
She also loves to load the trunk of her car and zoom around. Here she loaded her ball popper (not the quietest toy) and barely has room to sit. Yes, I know that her pajamas don't match here, but we had a little accident on the bottoms and didn't want to change tops too - I'm sure you understand.
I saved this box in case I needed it to pack, but so far Avery has used it as a toy box, car, and wagon for her things. I have just let her play with it instead of packing things in it.
Looks like she found mom's shoes and is wearing them around - not unusual.
I have to brag - she always puts on matching shoes. Even if she finds 2 black pairs - she always matches them and sports the same 2 shoes around.
Well, she is partially dressed in this picture, but escaped before I could get her pants on. She is concentrating so hard on walking in the mommy shoes!
