Just some goofy pics we took this weekend!

We had a good weekend, even though daddy had to work. We spent time with grandma and grandpa and pretty much stayed in with the exception of church on Sunday morning! The only plans we have this week are a trip to the mall with Aunt Shawna and baby Jett. And lunch with G.G. and grandma! So, it should be a quiet week. I am really wanting to take Averie to story time at one of the two libraries close by, but we haven't been able to make it just yet. Maybe tomorrow, we'll see! Since the weather has actually been winter-like we just don't like to go out as much. It can't be fun for the kids to get all bundled up and carted around in the freezing temps. So, we'll stick to less trips and more play-time at home! For now! We get out occasionally. It will be a much needed trip to the mall this week though, Averie has decided to grow since before Christmas so anything 18 months is too small. She can wear 18-24 months stuff, but I will only be buying her 2T shirts from now on. They are big, but in a good way! And she has plenty of pants. She needs long sleeve and short sleeve (I can layer the short sleeve) shirts! She got a few things for Christmas, but a lot was the wrong size and stuff. So, I have a lot of store credits to spend. And a couple gift cards. So, it shouldn't be an expensive mall outing, just productive!!! I also found some adorable tennis shoes for Averie at Gap which I will be trying and hopefully buying! Gap also has really cute play clothes for summer. I won't be buying them just yet, but have my eye on their comfy shorts and leggings and ribbed tank tops! I also do like the Converse® All Star® hi-top sneekers! Super cute! So, we'll see what I end up buying this week. Maybe we'll do a fashion show! That's all I have for now...more later this week. If we'd get more than .9" of snow, we'd be able to make a snowman for you. Hopefully before winter is over!!!

Averie built this tower all by herself! She was so proud...and so was I!

Then she tried to blow it down! :o) It didn't go with out a fight!!! She had to push it over eventually!

Baylor playing in his pack-n-play!

Averie smiles when you ask her; however, she doesn't quite look at the camera all of the time! And the little chunker boy!

Yet a little more cheese...and chunk!

Serious girl with braids! I turned this into black and white and it is just precious. I love her little profile.

BIG Averie smile and flaring nostrils and piggy tail braids!

Happy smiling Baylor!

Averie playing on the play equipment at an indoor playground place! She loved it and was great about staying on the smaller stuff while I fed Baylor! She was a great at climbing the plank walk and going down that slide...while I was within her reach! In the next pic, you can see how big some of the stuff was! Not really her speed! But she did good! And thankfully it was not so busy (this place opens up every Monday and Friday for an hour in the morning and lets kids play for free)! We had a great time!

There were other playsets even bigger than this one. It will be fun for her in a couple of years for sure. A great place to come in the winter to get out energy!

The cool looking sky on the way to my mom's last week (I was stopped at a stop sign, don't worry people)! It was not snowing until I got to this point on the road. You could actually see the snow in the distance! It was cool!

The stroller arrived. So far, we love it! We took it up to the GAP Target...and have pushed it around the house! :o)

Averie got an Anne Geddes baby butterfly at the gift exchange at the family reunion. It is so sweet looking!

On the way to the reunion...she wanted to see herself on the camera so I had her wear her new sunglasses and smile, and this is what we got! A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E...if you ask me! :o)

Mama and Averie after lunch! It was yummy!

Baylor, just hanging out! :o) Sitting on G.G.'s lap! He looks like such a big boy!

Baylor and G.G. just hanging out at the reunion!

Opening gifts!

I just purchased our new set of wheels! Can't wait to get them! :o) They have awesome prices here! And FREE shipping!
* * * *Update about the baby in the mall...I asked the watch place (the place that called mall security when the baby was found) yesterday when I was at the mall whatever happened to the baby. She told me that about a half an hour after they took the baby upstairs the parents came back and claimed to have lost their baby...when they told them that security had the baby upstairs, the dad slowly walked that way, the mom went into the store across the way and put some clothes on hold, then went and walked up to security (not frantic or worried at all). Yea, CRAZY people. And some people wonder why the world is like it is today.

Baylor decided he was going to start pouting out his lip for fun! It is so funny to watch him do this! He isn't going to cry or anything, he just pouts out his lip! He also didn't cry today in his bath for the first time! :o) Yea!! Breakthrough!


Averie and the sheep outside the church!

The happy family at the reception!

Raising the roof!

Dancing...kinda :o)

Averie had a blast dancing and being Miss Independent on the dance floor! She loved every moment of the loud upbeat music! We had to bribe her to leave by telling her she could go down the stairs, which she spent half the night doing anyway!

Christmas with Max and Maddie! Hmmm...which two were tired?

Averie, MiMi and Baylor celebrating Christmas at Taylor, Ella and Emma's! MiMi got the kids some adorable clothes! I can always count on MiMi to pick up the good deals! :o) We love you and miss you already, MiMi! Averie has been asking about you and I have to keep telling her you had to go back to Boston! We still have Christmas with Rece and a Family Reunion Sunday! And that will be the final one!

Here are just a fraction of the pictures we have of the two of them. I had to cut it down by like half! But these are my favs! Look how they have grown. I don't know what I'll do on Averie's 2nd b-day, probably cry...but they are getting so fun in their toddler age. Always learning new things and being so curious! Anyways, Rece, we love you and wish you a Happy Birthday! See you Saturday! Love, Matt, Beth, Averie and Baylor
Served Averie fresh milk for 1 year, 2 months and 5 days! Served Baylor fresh milk for 1 year, 6 months, 1 week and 5 days! Served Colbie fresh milk for 1 year, 3 months exactly!
