The last few days with Ava...

The picture isn't clear but Ava has two teeth in the front on the top and the bottom. I love seeing her cute little teeth when she smiles!

Ava waves at everything and everyone. First she started waving at things she knew she couldn't touch. Now she waves at everything. Here she is waving at the sun.

I dont know what she is doing here. I guess she is just being cute, silly little Ava.

My mom sent my birthday package and in it was this bucket. Ava loved it. She stole it when I opened the package. She lugged it around wherever she went for a while.

Pumpkin Patch

Hello! Gregg, Ava and I went to the pumpkin patch yesterday. It was icky and rainy but it was the first chance we have gotten to go so we took it.

We got yummy donuts and hot chocolate!

Ava liked examining the pumpkins.

She said "OHHHHHHH" about everything she saw.

We had a lot of fun!

Ava and Brandon

I watched my friend's son the other day. He is two weeks older than Ava is. They had a lot of fun. I went from one to two very quickly. I definitely am good with one baby right now!

Tea Time is New For Me

Two ladies from church who introduced me to tea time, bought me some Yorkshire Tea and a teapot and a teacup. How sweet! I was so excited to get home and make a cup of tea. They taught me how to make a British cup of tea. In the states, I hated tea because it was weak and bland. Well here, I once mistook a cup of tea for a cup of coffee. They put milk and sugar in their tea. It makes a wonderful hot drink. I am so thankful for their sweet gift. I am also glad they introduced me to the teatime in England tradition.

Poor Man's Lemon Pie

Oh my goodness we have found the secret to a wonderful treat. I have no idea if they sell such a thing as All Butter Lemon Curd in the states but they do over here and its amazing! A friend of ours gave it to us and we have been hooked ever since. It is a lemon butter with just a light lemon taste perfect for toast. We spread it on a graham cracker and it seriously tastes like lemon pie with graham cracker crust. It is so yummy!

A Beautiful Day in Mildenhall

I edited myself out of this picture because I was talking in it. We couldn't get a good picture because Ava couldn't stop looking at the ducks and swans. This was taken the second she looked over.

It was so pretty today in Mildenhall. We decided to go for a walk down to the river that flows through Mildenhall. Ava had SO much fun. She loved the ducks and the swans. They came right up to us. We had a lot of fun.

Reaching With All Her Might

I put her toys on top of the coffee table to give her something new and interesting to do. She loved it. She was determined to get them all.

Ava Loves Teddy

Every time Ava sees this teddy bear or any teddy bear for that matter, she smiles the biggest smile I have ever seen and smashes her face into it. She also carries it everywhere by its arm or ear. Lately she has been squinting her eyes completely shut and then smiling really big. Picture the first smile but with her eyes shut as well.
