Ava's Birthday Weekend....

Okay, so wow what a weekend for a birthday party.  I have learned not to ever plan for anything outside because it will snow 8".  We had to move the party to Sunday, and I have great family and friends that did not mind the change at all.  Lucky for me that Ava is only 2, and did not know the difference.  As for me... my hormones got the best of me and had a break-down Saturday afternoon because I was so upset to have to change it.  My mom always says that stuff like this always makes for a good story later.  Ava's birthday ended up being great, and she had a wonderful time!!

We all had a great time playing in the snow, and I'm glad my family from Texas got to witness some of this crazy Oklahoma weather.  Snowing all day one day, and beautiful sunshine and 60 degrees the next.

Well, Nana and I took Ava to her 1st gymnastics class tonight.  She was so cute!!  I had it in my mind that she would cry when I took her in there.  Oh, wow was I wrong.  She looked at the teacher, and the teacher said, "Do you want to go jump"?  She never looked back!!  She jumped, stretched, walked on a balance beam, climbed a wall, and had a full 50 minutes of pure FUN!!

Now and Then.....

I love these pictures!!!  The first one was taken a couple of weeks ago, and the second one was taken when Ava was a week old.  Once again thank you to Aunt Ashley!!  
I sit here with tears in my eyes on how blessed I am.  I have such a wonderful family, and I love them so much!!  I can't believe how fast she has grown.  Thank you God for this precious gift!!

Ava Bentley

I am going to dedicate this week to my precious little Ava.  She will be turning 2 on Friday, and it's amazing how she has changed our lives!!  I love this girl so much, and she seems to make Andy and I laugh on a daily basis.  From how she repeats everything we say to running around naked shaking her little bootie!!  She can sing half of her ABC's, sing the Barney song, gives the best kisses in the world, and do you see this girl stunt.   Thank you to Aunt Ashley for taking this awesome picture.   

P.S.  More to come!!!

Rider and Josie...

One of my best friends came over this weekend with her sweet twins!!  They are almost 5 months old, and growing so fast.  It was so fun getting to take some pictures of them.  And I have to brag on what a great mom Robbi is.  She loves these babies so much, and has such great patience with them.  I admire her so much!!  Aren't they precious....
