Easter at Grandma's house. This was a last minute pic so the kiddies are exhausted!
Cheese-ing for the camera!
Sitting on the step at church after a long morning of breakfast, egg hunt and church service. We went straight home for lunch and nap, then went to Grandma's after daddy got home from work. The pics above are from Grandma's.
Jenny and Bronsen stopped by for a visit! Averie LOVES baby Bronsen. It has been the only time she smiles regularly without a cheese or silliness...when baby Bronsen is in the pic.
We had an egg-cellent (haha) Easter. Full of good food, great company and tons of fun! Some day though it will be warm on Easter so we can hunt for eggs outside. I remember warm Easters when I was a kid, in short sleeve dresses and sandals... maybe someday for my kids!
This week was full of visitors and excitement! Rece and Carmine (Tonia, Annie and Brandon too) on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and a little visit to them Thursday to say bye. Jett and Jayde (and Shawna) Tuesday and Wednesday and Bronsen (and Jenny) Thursday. Visit/playtime Monday, Bounce House & Lunch Tuesday, Playtime/Girls' dinner out Wednesday, Target Thursday. Today, Friday has actually been busy too, but we have been in our house all day. We had preschool after breakfast(we talked about I and J and made a place mat so Averie knows where to put her dishes, silverware and cup when she eats. I organized/cleaned all day and got up-do-date on several things that needed organized, cleaned, paid and looked at! So, I feel pretty good. I just need to get a few things in the check book and a shower and I'll be set! But it's getting very late...Baylor will be up anytime, so I'll go for now...more pictures soon!

Birthday morning age 1 - age 2 - and age 3. I can't believe the change!
Averie and her Doodlebop cake - Aves and Baylor - Averie and Mama
The cake - Averie and her new bed - Averie at Chuck E. Cheese
Happy Birthday Averie Jean! It is so hard to believe you are three...in about 20 minutes to be exact! I can remember all the details of your birth, the prep, how the sun was shining through the blinds in the surgery room (I told myself to remember that moment), how the Dr.'s were busy getting things ready and my Dr. was so calm and sweet (just like she always is). How you have grown, and how you are so smart! I sometimes can still look at you and see that little baby girl with the spiky hair, chubby cheeks and beautiful full lips! Everything about you is so sweet and wonderful these days! You are smart and learning many new things and are so eager to learn. You are curious and don't want to miss a thing either! I love how you are a tad rough, yet mothering with your brother because it shows your spunky-sweet side and how you still love to be rocked and cuddled and loved on! I hope you have a very special day today and you enjoy being three. We love you so much-more every day! XOXOXOX (more Bday pics to come, 3 year old princess is still sleeping).
