It's Official!!

Gregg as of today is officially a Staff Sergeant! We went to his promotion ceremony today. The last ceremony we got pictures of was actually just his graduation from Airman Leadership School. Today was the real deal. Ava and I went up and had to symbolically tack on his stripe by punching his shoulder. The picture is not professional. I made Ava punch Gregg's shoulder. There were professional pictures taken as well so I will post those when I get my hands on them. That's all for now!

P.S. I tried to take the red eye out but it wasn't wanting to work so just imagine my eyes not being scary;)

I love to bake goodies but...

I have decided that I cant have baked goodies around the house all the time. They need to be a special treat. I love to make and eat them but that's just not healthy all the time! So I have decided Friday nights I am going to bake rather than buy treats. I found a recipe I am dying to try this Friday night. I found these Chocolate and Peanut butter sandwich cookies off of Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen website. Here is the link.
Don't they look scrumptious?!

Crazy Girl

Gregg changed Ava into her pajamas and the next thing I know she is running into the kitchen with her tights on her head. Boys. She was acting so funny. It was like she knew she looked funny. She kept acting crazy and running all over spinning and making funny noises.

On the move...

Gregg's Promotion Ceremony

This is a picture I snapped of Gregg accepting his certificate for graduation. I didn't get a very good picture because I had to snap it fast. As it was, they held this pose so I could take a picture! Oh well... at least you can make out that it is indeed Gregg accepting the certificate!

A Date

Gregg and I had dinner and a movie at home. I made rosemary roasted chicken and potatoes. It was delicious! We also had sparkling Apple Pomegranate juice. I cleaned up and then we had candy and watched Little House on the Prairie. We are kind of hooked. We rent the season from the library here and watch it. Ava runs to the TV when we ask her if she wants to watch it. We had a really good day. Gregg did very well with his present for me and his presentation of the present. My favorite thing he got me was of course the beautiful flowers! I love the flowers from the local grocery store called Sainsbury's. The flowers from there last forever! Anyways, that's all for today!


This is Ava sitting on the sidewalk outside our house.

Ava loved her Valentine's Day basket. The only smiling picture I got was of her looking at the basket. She especially loved the big fat pig!

This is Ava reaching for something she shouldn't have.

She carried this pig around all day!
