Ava has been obsessed with Australia for the last month of so. Not sure exactly what got her started, but the commercial comes on and she just flips out! I told a digi-friend of mine that lives in Australia about this and she made the kids a penpal package of stuff from Australia! Kirstie rocks!

Zach's drawing of me holding a basket and other fun imagination stuff!

My silly little love! Zach took this picture so she actually smiled!

Valentine's Day Pictures

Poor Ava was sick for Valentine's Day so we spent the day at home. Zach had a lot of fun at his school party and he brought her bag of goodies home for her to enjoy :-)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's for their classmates

We hope you are all enjoying quality time with your loved ones! We celebrated over the weekend with the thought that we would have work and school today. Ava is still sick though so the two of us are laying on the couch for our sick Valentine's Day. We did have some fun with chocolate covered strawberries yesterday though <3

Zach as 4 years and 5 months

Zach is just learning so much in Mrs Michelle's pre-K class. He knows most of his letters and their sounds and is even starting to understand that the letters blend together to make words that he can read. He is very good at school and the teacher has told me he is one of her favorites and she thinks we are doing a wonderful job raising him. Don't know why he acts out at home but I think he bottles it all day and lets it out for us! His favorite food right now is french fries and watermelon, haha! His favorite drink is watermelon juice (his words just now because he is in a goober mood!) He loves to play with his transformers and enjoys watching Monsters Inc right now. He has been all about privacy lately which makes me laugh. He will close the door to his room and say "you can't see my privacy!" Hahaha!

Ava-ism's at 2 years and 10 months old!

Ava is sick right now but even with a cold she is so full of funny things to say. Her favorite thing to say right now is "when we wake up, is it a home day or a school day?" No matter what the answer is she gets excited. She also loves to do "homework" with Zach. Her favorite song is Firework by Katy Perry. Her words "baby your the fireworks!" I just have to smile each time she sings it. She loves dance class until we are driving there when she decides she doesn't like it and is just going to watch. Once she is there she is fine and is easily bribed to participate. Her favorite food is chicken and rice (her words just now and a total shock to me!) Her favorite color is pink. Her favorite toy is forever changing and she loves to bring something knew to school each day because "my friends will really like this!" I can't believe she is going to be 3 in less than 2 months.

California Adventure!

The boys laughing at us!

Me trying to pretend I wasn't terrified!

We decided to go to California Adventure on Sunday due to the crazy lines just to park at the Disneyland parking structure. We did some things we hadn't done yet and saw a few new characters. Ava was excited to see Jesse and Sully, but she got really scared when her turn came up for Sully. I guess I can see her point! Ava also ventured onto the Ferris Wheel for the first time. We let the boys persuade us to go on the swinging car and I should have just said no! We both hated every minute of it. We ventured the line for Toy Story Mania (my favorite ride!) and saw the Muppets 3D movie. The kids really enjoyed it so I may take a chance at the theater again in the near future. I can't wait to have movie buddies!

January 30th, 2011-My Brother is MARRIED!

These are some of my favorite pictures from the day! It was a beautiful day and you could feel the love and excitement in the air. The only way it could have been any better was if Andy, Zach and Ava could have made it out. I got very lucky with the weather though. Got there just after a big storm and left just before a big storm!
