Ava Goes to School

This year my school offered a Pre-K program and I was so excited to sign Ava up. At first Kevin an I weren’t sure if she was ready and would enjoy it but then school started and we knew we made the right decision. AJ LOVES going to Holy Redeemer. She is having so much fun and is blessed to have to wonderful teachers. She is going to school all day and gets home exhausted but definitely having learned something. Here are some pictures from her first day.


Long time no post

So whats been up with us in the last oh 3 or months? Lots! The main reason I am not blogging as much is because my lap top is missing a y and a b key so it makes typing a pain! I have tons of pictures to share and lots of family fun to talk about. I
am trying to get into the blogging mood but the copying and pasting of letters is gettign OLD. One guess what I want for Christmas…

For now I will tell you that my kids have been getting to know each other more and more and everyday they amaze me with the love they have for one another. Kohen is so affectionate with his big sister it is heart warming. Of course they bicker and fight over toys daily but in quiet moments they show their love and it makes me melt.

Here are some pictures from August and our vacation to Massanutten. We got to do so much fun stuff and squeezed in so much of Ava’s to do list like fishing! Will post what we did in September soon!

Let it Snow!

Today we had a snow day.
Even though I planned to stay in these ALL day Little Miss had other plans.

So we traded Ugg slippers for Ugg Boots and headed out into the snow.

To look at and play in this.
When we started out The Boy was less than interest. She on the other hand was ecstatic.
This was the first time she got to play in the snow for more than 10 minutes. Her favorite part was dancing in the snow.I thought she might be cold at this point but no she was still all smiles.

So I decided that going for a walk to Sleven would be fine. This became my destination.
For what you might ask? What would make her walk to 7-11 in the snow with two kids in tow?
Well I did tell you about my obsession no?

And all was right with the world again. Well for me at least.
I then asked Little Miss what her destination was. Guess what she said!?! Rain Snow or Shine 3 year olds love the the park!

I checked on The Boy and off we headed. Guess he still wasn’t interested in the snow.
A quick pic of Just Us Girls.
My two favorite pictures of the day:

Ava’s Christmas Party

Ava had her Christmas Party on Wednesday it was very cute. The kids performed a few songs and then had some Christmas treats. I think that Ava did a great job singing the Christmas songs and remembering the routine. I was very surprised since she mentioned very little about it at home. It was so cute to see her performing. She is getting so big so fast which is a little sad but all in all its great. The school surprised them with a visit from Santa (I know him ;). This was the second time AJ saw Santa this year and when she realized he was there she was sooooo psyched but then just acted like it was no biggie when she got to meet him and tell him what she wanted for Christmas. Her number one gift is definitely a guitar. She saw this pink one in a PBkids catalog and has been wanting a pink guitar ever since. We went to PBkids and contemplated getting it but then came to our senses and realized a $159 electric guitar for a 3 year old is not the wisest decision. Luckily Kev found one at Target for a much better price and pink to boot! So I think my Mom will be giving her that. I asked to tell Santa what else she wants and she said a Ming-Ming but I have no clue what that is! Hopefully Santa will know and she won’t be disappointed because she left school saying Santa was bringing her a guitar and a Ming Ming. Below is a video from the Christmas show. I am not sure why it gets fuzzy at times but I think it is still super cute!

Showers with Daddy

Which is which????

MoCo Fair

We went to the fair last night. AJ had a blast and Kohen was so good. We had funnel cake and cotton candy so that made Ava’s day (mine too). My sis went with us and made me ride this thing that was like the pirate boat but spun as well, kind looked like a claw, crazy. Its funny but I use to love rides like that and now they make me scared but I was so glad I got on it was soooo fun.

Crazy eyes and daddy

She wanted a bunny for our house. So did I!

AJ’s first roller coaster

Last year I had to walk with her.

There could not be anymore love between them!
