Ava's 7th birthday was celebrated in several different ways. These were taken on her actual birthday.
I took cupcakes to her class at school and loved that her teacher had a special sign for the birthday student's chair. So cute!
After school, I asked her what she wanted to do. Her response was, "Go to Claire's and buy some earrings." So off to Claire's we went. We bought several pairs of cute earrings, a cute necklace, and a couple of headbands. So girly.
After Claire's we headed to Yogurt Express. What a yummy place! You make your own sundae by using the topping bar. So delicious. Ava topped hers with gummy bears and pretzels. How weird!
Then off to a birthday dinner at the Mexican restaurant. Ava wanted Chinese, but she also wanted someone to sing to her, so she chose Mexican.
Yes, this boy is a falsetto child!
You know you are a busy mom when you forget candles and use a giant candle lighter. :)
And here she is sleeping like a sweet 7 year old. #soblessed
Tiffany, Bradley, Ava, and Harrison
Tiffany is the lady of the manor. Teacher by day and Mommy/ Wife/Photographer/ Cook/Maid/Scrapbooker/TV watcher/ Jack of All Trades by night. Bradley says I have way too many hobbies and I need to put some aside. I love to take pictures and scrapbook our lives. I used to read alot, but I find that I don't have as much time as I used to. I am entranced by my DVR and because of it I watch way too much TV! I also tend to make jokes in uncomfortable situations.
This man of the house enjoys all things sports related. There appears to be no season that he doesn't enjoy. I think the only sports he won't watch are golf and soccer. My guy is a fan of The Price is Right and Andy Griffith. During the day you can find him at work in the family water business, and at night you can find him watching the news and Wheel of Fortune. He is an excellent story reader with multiple voices and a pro at making stuffed animals talk and dance.
Ava is 5 years old. She is a kindergartener this year and has been giving them a run for their money. She enjoys Disney Movies and playing, especially with her Build a Bear, Flower. She loves reading and is starting to listen to chapter books like Junie B. Jones. Ava loves all stuffed animals and if possible would own a zoo full of stuffed animals. Her imagination is really starting to take off. She is an excellent big sister and a complete drama queen! She takes dance and cheer and loves going to church for her bible study class.
Harrison (aka CAPTAIN DESTRUCTO) is almost 2 years old. He is a messy eater who prefers empty carbs. He loves to snuggle and I call him a cuddlebug. He also likes to put things up his nose. :( He enjoys playing with Ava and going outside. He loves watching the movie "How to Train Your Dragon" and loves to torment his sister and the girls at his Daycare. He can be super sweet, or super fierce. He keeps me laughing and on my toes.
