10 on Tuesday...well Wednesday

I am starting this post on Monday because it is the beginning of another crazy week her at the Rogers' house. The week that school late is out for a break is always a rush, but so blessed when it finally arrives!

  1. Our weekly rundown is this: Monday - Ava cheer, possibly choir/band Christmas concert, Tuesday - Ava cheer, Wednesday - Ava - church Christmas party, Thursday - Ava cheer at TOMS middle school game, Friday - last day of school !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay! - Saturday - Christmas in KY at Nanny's house! I know that sounds crazy, but I know there are some things that I am forgetting!
  2. Speaking of Christmas - I have to go and buy gifts for Ava for her Christmas party and all of her different teachers.
  3. I just completed my 2nd class in my Masters program, and I currently have a 4.0 gpa. Yay!
  4. Harrison's vocabulary is getting a little broader. He is now saying bye-bye, momma, dada, baba (bottle which we just took away), cat, uh-huh, and outside. Of course, he always throws out the "Ta" which stands for anything. Love him!
  5. It snowed on Sunday and Harrison was so amazed by it. He stared out the window for the longest time watching it. Ava wanted to go out and play, but there just wasn't enough of it and it had mostly melted by afternoon. It was beautiful while it lasted though.
  6. There is the possibility for winter weather tonight (aka, freezing rain) and I just want it to go away. I don't want a day off so close to break! That's a waste!
  7. The sickness is creeping into our house. Bradley has lost his voice and has a horrible sore throat. Last night he felt awful and this morning was the same. Please, God, not so close to Christmas!
  8. I have been keeping up with my December Daily book. I need to take some pictures of it and post. It is really coming along and I love it!
  9. We have been playing the Wii like crazy lately. Mario, enough said....
  10. Ava will be playing handbells at church on the 19th and the 24th. You are invited. She is fun to watch... :)

Thanksgiving in Nashville

The weekend before Thanksgiving we traveled up to Nashville to enjoy Thanksgiving at Uncle Timmy's house. It has been a while since we have been to Nashville so we were looking forward to getting away and maybe doing a little shopping while there. We were lucky enough to get most of our Christmas shopping done and still have fun with family. We even got to see Santa not once, but twice!

It was a fabulous weekend and I am so thankful for those memories, especially of Ava with her new friend, Flower. We made Flower at Build a Bear and Ava is just enthralled with her new friend.

The delicious spread made by Uncle Timmy.
Hanging out at the hotel.

It looks like he has a fake leg... random...

Little Choctaws

This year Ava has been involved with the Little Choctaws cheerleading program that is sponsored by the cheerleaders/dance team at the school I teach at. She has a few friends that she already knew when we started, but has made a few more. They have been practicing since October and cheered their first game right before Christmas.

Ava started out doing well, but in true Ava fashion, she did what she wanted. After the first cheer she threw down her pompoms and didn't cheer, but she still clapped and kicked her leg up every once in a while. I figured she would do better if she didn't see me, but she spent the whole time looking for me instead. I am just crossing my fingers that next time goes better. On the plus side, she looks totally cute in her uniform and said she had a good time!
