Picture Update

Ava got a play tea set today and she has been playing with it all afternoon. Six dollars has brought much joy into this little girl's life:)

So disappointing...

Ava playing with her palm pilot. Gregg and I don't really have a use for it and since we got it for FREE, Ava has acquired it. She is a busy girl so an organizer is necessary.

Ava LOVES dogs

Ava can now CLEARLY say "doggy". She says it alllll the time. She gets really excited when there is actually a dog to point at! We went over to my friend Rachael's house today and we got to see Dakota (Ava's love) and their dog Dotty. Ava chased Dotty around the yard squeezing her fists open and shut and saying "dogeeeee". Here are some pictures.

Fishy Face

When I make a fishy face, I move my lips up and down at the same time. She is trying to copy me. Funny girl!

Tonight after Gregg got home from work (weekend duty), we were sitting on the couch talking to Ava when she pushed Gregg's hands together and said "pay". We didn't understand what she was talking about so we asked her a couple of times. Finally she folded her hands and said a prayer. That's when we understood. She is such a precious little girl and we thank God for her every day.

The most wonderfulest bread in the whole wide world

Oh my goodness. Wow. This bread is awesome. We had sandwiches for dinner tonight and they were amazing. They were amazing because of the cook of course and well mostly because they were made with the softest bread to ever graced my tongue with it's presence. I think I said that right. Anyway, a friend of ours from church brought them today because she knows they are my favsies. They are from Gregg's bakery (not my Gregg) and they are pure deliciousness. I am sure there are loads of spelling errors in this paragraph so I won't even bother to check. Also for dessert I made white chocolate and Frito popcorn. My mom actually found it on I will have to let you know how it is. Bye for now!

Happy Girl

Grocery Shopping

Here we are grocery shopping at the commissary. Ava loves to push the cart. I let her walk with me when I just have a few things to pick up but she loves sitting in the cart just the same.

The other day we were shopping and I was letting Ava walk beside me. I turned around for a second to grab something from the shelf and when I turned back she had a glas jar of peanut butter in her arms and a glass jar of baby food balancing on top. I hurried to her to take them from her arms but once I grabbed the top jar, she dropped the jar of peanut butter and it shattered. Fun stuff. Clean up on aisle 4!

Fast Asleep

I had time this morning before Ava woke up to do a lot of the things I needed to get done. I also had time to have a nice relaxing cup of coffee before I snuck into her room and found her asleep like this.
