Happy Holidays

Hope everyone is doing well. We're pretty busy getting ready for the holidays, but so glad to be settled in our house this year for Christmas instead of packing. I couldn't wait to put up the tree this year since I couldn't last year. Our halls were decked before Thanksgiving! The few of you who check this blog (mostly out of town family) wanted some new Ava pics so here you go! Enjoy! She's hilarious and is getting so excited for Christmas this year. She is starting to understand the whole Christmas present thing, and has let me know that she wants a rocking chair. We'll see what we can do. . .

So cute! I put up the tree and thought of you because of your going away party here last year. I'm so glad you're able to be settled and have a less hectic holiday this time around. Please call us when you're in town at some point!

Ava is so cute! I have been missing your posts...so glad you updated. Is that Ava's big girl bed? If it is I just can't believe it that she is big enough to be in a bigger bed! I was looking at the painting you did for Garrett's room the other day with his birth info. and I just love it! I was thinking about you and how you made it so perfect for his room. Thanks again for it and for making something so special.

I miss that girl (and you of course!). She always makes me smile! I went to Courtney's house last night & had total dejavu about last year's going away party for you guys - it made me a little sad to realize you've already been gone a year (almost!). I'm looking forward to spending some time with you again soon! Love ya

Great pics of little Ava! I didn't know you had a blog..I'll have to start reading yours! I just got mine set back up, haven't done it in quite some time. Nicole motivated me to do it again! Loved the 80's pictures from that party, that was seriously hilarious....and SO accurate to how the style was then. Lets just hope some of those styles don't creep back in. haha

I LOVE the pics! Just last night Bella asked to go and visit Ava out of the blue and wanted to know all about what she was doing and where she was. Yesterday I had the girls over from church for Christmas lunch again and I could not believe a year had gone by from your going away party! OH MY! SO glad you are settled and enjoying this Christmas not in boxes! We love you! Merry Christmas!
