"Instagram" my new Fav!

Look at the fun things you can do with the iphone app Instagram... So fun. And here are some fun pics from our fun family vacation to sunny California. Such fun memories. Seriously, we spent most of the time at the pool... I think that's the kids favorite and Disneyland is a close second... I'd have to say I agree with them.

Happy Birthday, Avery!

Avery's the birthday girl! (Yes, I'm behind I've missed a few other events but I'll catch up.) Avery is five. My sweet little/tall Avery is five! Stop it please! She is growing up so fast. She is in her second year of preschool and is cruising right along. Her favorite food is peanut butter and honey sandwiches with the crust cut off, of course, and a glass of milk. She loves loves loves her big sister Andie and they are bff's. She is also an amazing big sister to Aidan. She loves to read her books and teach her how to say new words. She is always saying,"Say this word" to Aidan, and Aidan will usually repeat it... (which is kind of stressing me out how many words my baby is saying, Anywaaaay...) She loves To snuggle and read stories at night before she goes to bed. She always makes sure we do our "Happys" and "Sads" for the day. We can never forget. She's a little home body but does like to play with her many friends in the neighborhood.

Avery is precious and has a big heart. If I'm tired and fall asleep on the sofa next to her while she's watching cartoons, she'll always run a get a blanket and cover me up. She is as sweet as can be. I love my little/tall Avery so much.

Apple Pressing

It's the season for apples! Lucky for us Grandpa and Babi Nibley have an authentic apple press. On this night, many hands made light work... but everyone's back seemed to hurt a bit. The juice was delish!

First Day 2011

I have a 6th grader and a 2nd grader... Andie was up at 6:00 a.m. ready for school and stressed that we were going to be late... Alex slept in until the last second and I begged her to eat something before we finally made it to school. Two totally different personalities. Maybe I'm getting a dose of the teenage years I have ahead of me. Dave and I are very scared. Anyway, my girls love each other so much. This is the last year they will be at the same school. Wow, more Zanax please.

Such love

Work it!


Look at these cupcakes

Cute face in the crowd

Colorado 2011

Durango, Silverton, Purgatory = Heaven. We didn't have a bear houseguest this year and Alex wasn't with us 'cause she was at Clear Creek Camp so it wasn't quite the same. It's always fun to be with family and have the kids be with their cousins. I didn't blog about last years party so here is picture overload of this years Colorado adventures...
