Ava's 1st Haircut

Well, it was finally time for my baby's first haircut! My sweet friend Lindsey did the honors, and saved a little curl for me.  Ava was amazingly still and compliant, thanks to a little entertainment from Jackson and MarioCart :) Her hair looked adorable when Lindsey finished, and all her curls were still there! My fear was that her first haircut would mean the end of all those precious curls, but Lindsey did an awesome job and preserved them quite nicely.

Ava and Lindsey's little girl, Zoie Grace. They almost look like sisters!

Welcome Baby Titus

Last weekend we a few of my girlfriends and I threw a baby shower for our friends Brett and Debbie, and it turned out so cute! A bunch of people came to celebrate the upcoming arrival of baby Titus, and the excited parents got some wonderful gifts to help get everything ready for him. We love you guys and can't wait to meet little Titus in just a few weeks!

Summer Freedom '09

This was my first time to get to go to the annual Fireworks at the Crosses at our church, and it was absolutely amazing! We had such a great time: awesome music by our Pinnacle Hills band, good food, tons of people, and an incredible 30 minute fireworks show set to music! What more could you ask for? Ava was a little scared of the fireworks, but thats ok, she's got plenty of years ahead of her to enjoy them. Can't wait till next year!

Visit with Mimi & Papa

Oh how we miss the gorgeous weather and palm trees from our awesome visit with Mimi and Papa in Florida! We had such a wonderful time and can't wait to go back! We sure miss Mimi and Papa when we're gone, but get so excited to plan our next trip and look forward to all the time we get to spend together.

Home Life

Random pics from last week, after recovery from our prolonged bout with the stomach virus. Not to worry, we're all still alive and kicking.

Lovin' those crackers

ahh, a girl after my own heart :)

Antique Shopping

My latest finds from antique shopping - which is actually way more fun when you leave the chil'ens at home with Dad :) Turns out this is a quite therapeutic, low budget, and apparently fruitful use of my alone time!

Pottery for Ava's room

Cold weather accessory in case I ever decide to visit Russia

Sick Day

How sad is this? Ava has the stomach virus (again) and has been pretty pitiful for the last couple of days. Thank goodness we're past the throwing up stage, today was just fever. We made her a little bed on the couch and she's watching Sesame Street with her bunny, Velvet. So sad when your babies get sick!
