Merry Christmas....

I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and thank you for visiting my blog!! I left you with some of my favorite pictures of Ava this Christmas season. She is talking so much, and just having so much fun!! I am so excited about Santa Claus this year!! Every time Ava sees a Santa she says "HO HO HO." I love it because I am very big on having family traditions, and I love everything about Christmas!!

She had a BLAST making gingerbread ornaments with Nana, and her cousins. They were so into it!!
Now they are watching them bake!! They are so cute!!

Thanksgiving and Christmas Train.....

I was lucky enough to have my whole family here for Thanksgiving. We had great food, looked at the Black Friday ads, and the kids played. My sister and I were one of the crazy people at "TOYS R US" on Friday morning @ 5:00 a.m. I haven't been up that early since Ava was a tiny baby. The line wrapped all the way around the building, and as we are standing in line we are asking ourselves "What in the hell are we doing?" The trip was worth it because we got what we went for!!!

One of the highlights of the weekend was going to Dry Gulch for the Christmas Train. There was a chill in the air so it felt like Christmas. It was so neat!! We got to hear the Christmas Story, the kids got pictures with Santa, and the hot chocolate kept us warm. AWESOME!! I highly recommend going if you live in the Tulsa area.

So here are pictures from our weekend.

Isn't this the cutest picture!! I just love it. Pretty...pretty....pretty....


I'm trying to get caught up on my blog. I have been slacking. I've had family in, and super busy with Christmas stuff. I thought this picture was pretty cool, and it was for my homework a couple of weeks ago. I took it in downtown Tulsa, and the weather was beautiful that day. This church is so pretty, and has the coolest red doors on it.

Digital 2 Class....

Well, I have started part II of my photography journey. Our class is going to be great. It's a small class, and my friend Dawn is in it with me. We met in my first class, and found out that she lives in Owasso, and knows the Kight family.
So, in our first class we went out in the windy cold weather, and took pictures down in Tulsa. It was AWESOME!! We learned so much the first night, and these pictures were taken without a flash!! I thought they turned out pretty good!! I'm so excited to learn more.....

Beautiful Weather....

It has been so beautiful in Oklahoma for the last couple of weeks. I had to take advantage of the awesome leaves at Grandma Gwens. Ava and her friend Kade had so much fun playing in the leaves!!

My Little Ladybug....

Well, I'm going to overload you with pictures. We had such an exciting Halloween this year, and Ava was a ladybug. Isn't she just so cute in this outfit!?!

Nana brought Ava this pumpkin so that they could carve it together. She kept trying to pick it up, and look how she finally started carrying it. I think she takes after her father in strength.

If this pumpkin were a stuffed animal, she would carry it with her all the time. She kept giving him kisses. It was so cute!!

Nana let her get her hands all down in the pumpkin, and Ava was picking the seeds out one at a time. I definitely have a little girl on my hands.

First of all, I love trick-or-treating in my neighborhood. It is so awesome, and our neighbors are so great!!
Okay, so us crazy women pile on this golf cart, and take off to go trick-or-treating. What great fun to have Grams and Nana to go with us. Grams hooked us up with all of the glow bracelets, and necklaces. We set off to the first house, and by the third house Ava was a pro. Her little basket around her arm, and prancing to the door. Someone would lean down to say how cute she was, and Ava would start taking candy, and putting it in her bag. She really had so much fun, and so did we watching her as she pranced around!! The weather was perfect, and I was feeling like a kid again too. I just love this time of year!!

Look at these cuties!! We got to hang out with the family the other night, and the cousins had so much fun playing together. Little Wyatt was very interested in Ava. And we all started laughing so hard when Tate and Lane laid down on the floor and put their feet in the air. Ava had to jump right in to copy them. She was just doing everything they were. It was so funny!! I'm sure Ava will be tough hanging out with all of these BOYS, and I'm sure these BOYS will take good care of her when she gets older!!

Pumpkin Patch....

Well, I know that fall is here because my windows are open, and there is a chill in the air. I love this beautiful weather!! And I love taking pictures in a pumpkin patch!!
Right when we got there Ava started saying "pumpkin". And she had to test out several of the pumpkins by sitting on them. Too funny!! I was so excited because Grandma Gwen got to go with us. She is the special woman who keeps Ava everyday. I thank God everyday for Grandma Gwen.

Thank you Grandma Gwen for going to the Pumpkin Patch!!

Okay, so the older we get, the closer we are!! I love these girls, and we have such a good time when we get together. It's amazing how different we are, but yet look how much we look alike!!

Mandy who is the tallest, and oldest has two beautiful boys. Her husband works very hard, and makes me laugh quite often. She is a wonderful mom, and would do anything for anybody!! I think she is so pretty, and I want to thank her for always being there for me!

Erica, who is five years younger, just started her new career path. Her and her husband just bought a beautiful new house, and they are busy decorating it!! She is a great Aunt to all of the kids, and they love her so much. She is such a hard worker, and very laid back at the same time. Thank you for being you!!


I'm so excited!! One of my BEST FRIENDS (Robbi) is having TWINS, yes I said TWINS any day now!! We had a baby shower for her a couple of weeks ago, and she has received some awesome gifts. These babies are going to be so LOVED. I love you Robbi, and I can not wait to hold these bundles of joy. Oh, and she is having a boy and a girl.
