piggytails.jpg

Ava really took to wearing pigtails over the weekend. I love it! On Thanksgiving, a family member commented that he thought Ava looked a little like an Olsen twin. I can only hope that he meant this version:

And not an Olsen of this variety:

Either way, my girl is WAY cuter that Mary-Kate and Ashley. Hands down.

Some Cuteness to Tide You Over

I found these photos of the girls from a few months ago on Jason's computer. There were a lot of gems hidden on there so hopefully I will make a gallery of them soon. This weekend however, will be filled with pumpkin pie and packing since we will be moving in just over one month! I also have Ava's birthday coming up, Christmas stuff to deal with and did I mention we would be eating lots of pie? Mmmmm.....

"A Magical Adventure for Yooouuuu!"

totoro.jpg

Ava's favorite movie right now is called "My Neighbor Totoro." As is with all of her favorites, she would prefer for Totoro to be on rotation on the television twenty-four hours a day. Upon realizing that I was not going to do this for her, Ava has now learned to turn on the television in the bedroom, take the dvd out of the case, open the dvd player, put the dvd in the drive, close it, and press play. Sometimes I'll be in the kitchen and suddenly hear the movie's theme song wafting downstairs from the bedroom. I'll go upstairs and find her with a big grin on her face, bouncing up and down saying, "Look, Mommy! To-to-ro!

It's That Time Again, Can You Believe It?

Ok, I'm doing that thing where I post about how I haven't had time to post anything here lately. Mainly it's because I'm so wrapped up with the house we may be buying. I'm now realizing though just how close we are getting to Ava's birthday and I'm starting to freak out a little. (Two years old! Eek!) Since we're probably going to be knee-deep in the moving process as well as the holidays, I'm proposing to have a small, family party for her the weekend after Thanksgiving. I'm just throwing it out there to give those of you who would be coming a heads up. I haven't gotten around to making invitations yet and don't even get me started on her birthday video. I WILL do it though. I will not skimp on the birthday video just because I'm busy and she's the younger child!

Juliana drawing with Uncle Billy

This is a few weeks old, but still pretty cool. Juliana picked red paper, which freaked out the iSight, but what can you do?
