Turkeys!

What a great week it's been!  Super busy at work, but we made time to have fun around the house and with friends.  And...I can't believe it's already Thanksgiving this week...we're almost done Christmas shopping for Ava, so at least we feel a bit ahead this year.  Thank goodness, because last year, we were really late with things.

To celebrate the very NEXT holiday, Ava and I went to my friend Emilie's house today, and made turkeys out of tissue paper.  It was a glue-y, sticky, messy fun time!  Em is great with kids, and Ava is no exception.  And Em's dog Lily did really well with Ava, too - we weren't sure how that was going to go, but we were pleasantly surprised! 

We have some fun Christmas crafts lined up in the next few weeks...I haven't done projects like these in forever.  I forgot how fun they are!



Sticky!


Ava cleverly placed this cow sticker on her shirt...it looks like it's nibbling on the doughnut!


Now that Ava has longer hair, Scott enjoys styling it during bathtime...



Success!  She's catching a glimpse of herself in the mirror!


Sometimes Ava needs to do some heavy lifting in the house (a.k.a pony ride), while Mommy takes a nap...




Looking forward to a fun week - at least it'll be a short one at work, so we can spend more time with the family at the end!
