COoKies AnYOne?!

Yesterday was our ward fundraiser dinner for the young womens girls camp. We signed up to make a dessert for the "dessert auction". Justin, of course, is an awesome baker, and made some delicious peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. :) Ahhh, they were so good.... So, we bagging them up and headed out the door....An hour and a half later on the way home from our dinner Justin and I were casually talking when we figured out neither one of us had taken the last batch of cookies out of the oven. To make a long story short...I thought he took them out and he thought I took them out. When we got home we could smell smoke before we opened the door. Justin put the tray of cookies outside and we opened all the windows. We've had them open all night and all day...I just can't get ride of the smell. At least there weren't any fire trucks outside our house when we got home!

SiLly FaCEes

The other day while Ava was eating lunch she said said "Mom will you take some pictures of me?" I said "What so you want me to take a picture of ?" She said "My mad face, happy face and scared face." So I took a few pictures of her and couldn't help but laugh at what a little goof ball she is. I thought she did a great job with her different faces. She is so funny and full of expression all the time. I love you Ava!! (In case you were wondering....that little thing above her lip isn't a bugger, she fell and hit her lip a couple days ago... it is a scab)

Wall of Fame

Ava goes to preschool every Tuesday and Thursday and loves it! Today she was learning about night time and got to wear her jammies! These are a few of the few paintings/projects she has done in preschool so far. I love seeing what cute things my little Ava makes. She has also learned to spell Ava...and today she showed me what the lettle A is in sign language. We are so proud of her! She is a natural leader and lives life to the fullest. Good job in preschool Ava, you are learning so much!

Just another day in paradise!

These are a couple of pictures I took this afternoon. Ava got all my dish towels out and was using them as baby blankets for her dolls "nap time". She also covered up Eli and was playing house with him (she is so lucky to have a really baby to play with). Next thing I know they are rolling on the floor giggling in the front room. It is the sweetest thing. Ava can get him to laugh when ever she wants. It is so heart warming to see how much they love each other. They just adore each other! It really is the little things that make being a mom so rewarding.

Eli 6 Months!

I just went in for Eli's 6 month check up. He is growing so fast. He weighed 17lbs and 15 oz and was 27 1/4 inches long. We just started feeding him rice cereal regularly. At first he was gagging on it, but now he is slowly eating some and spitting some out.
Ava and Eli love to play together. It is the sweetest thing when I'm making dinner and all the sudden I hear Ava and Eli giggling. Ava loves to make him laugh and Eli thinks she is pretty funny! I will post some pictures soon, my camera battery is dead and I just ordered rechragable batteries. I haven't posted in a while, and just figured out how to change my blog back ground thanks to Ashlee! Thanks Ash! I'll try to keep up and blog more often, life just gets so busy!
