christmas extravaganza!

>> Monday, December 29, 2008

so we had a super busy holiday season...complete with family, friends, travel, travel, and more travel! we are totally exhausted, but had a wonderful time visiting with everyone! ava got so spoiled and i fee as if we are living in an F.A.O. Schwartz toy store! she got sooooo many new toys, i have started going through her old toys and packing them up...should have started that before christmas...oh well, no time then, to busy shopping, wrapping, baking, decorating..... anyway here are a few shots from the first few days of christmas for us...i'll post more later from the last few days of christmas...

ava on the potty...she'll love this when she's 16!
playing with her blocks, and giving me her new "cheese" face!

hi! ava here! mom's busy doing the dishes so i thought i would hijack the blog!!!! i got such a special package in the mail today from my favorite aunt jen and uncle jon! my very own chatterbox elmo...he is very chatty, just like me! i love him! i even got to open the present all by myself, it was so exciting! thank you so much aunt jen and uncle're the best!
oh, and mom loved her little pressies, too! she says, you shouldn't have...but you should have seen her dancing around with that target gift card! she's so excited...i guess we'll be going back to target again very, very soon!!!!!

christmas season

soooooo, it's been a while....sorry!!!! nothing too exciting going on here. thanksgiving was wonderful, hope everyone had a beautiful day! bo had the day off, so we got to be together all day long, a special treat! now bo got switched to a day shift (yay!!!), so hopefully life can be somewhat "normal" (whatever that is) for us now! it has been about 2 1/2 years since he started at the railroad and has always been on the night shift or second day shift is a first for us! hopefully it will be as good as i think it is! still has crazy days off, but oh well...we will get him every night now :)
so, grams and i took ava to see santa claus at hulen mall tonight...she loved santa from a distance...waving, saying hi, wrinkling her nose and making her super cute silly face! we were the second people in line, a small baby before us. that baby screamed and screamed...i think that tipped ava off that maybe this wasn't as much fun as she thought originally. so of course, she screamed, too! even with the tempting bracelets grams secretly handed to santa to try to sway her to love him...oh well, we got one shot with her looking at santa and of course, the notorious screaming child with santa shot! i'll post the other one another day, only had time to scan one!

We also took ava to a christmas tree place to try and get some shots for the christmas card....that was a bust. she didn't want anything to do with it, got one or two decent shots, but nothing good enough for the christmas card...i'll keep trying! thought i'd post a few anyway....

thought this one was cute, smelling the christmas tree...or maybe licking, not quite sure what she was up to in there!
