The 52 Project/Week 31

We’ve had a nice quiet weekend around the house this week…so we decided to make some pumpkin squares together!  Cody helped with gathering ingredients and measuring…Avett, you were quality control on the ingredients.  I forgot how much you two liked pumpkin straight from the can!IMG_20150104_110312 Then, Avett found his glasses again while playing with the play dough.  I love these glasses.IMG_20150104_113615Love you guys-

My sweet perfect little man.  I love your daring sense of fashion.  : )IMG_4880 IMG_4888 IMG_4887 IMG_4883Last week Dad brought home a large box from school for you guys to play in.  It has needed several duct tape repairs, but you guys are still having a blast with it.  Tonight it was a “boat”…you drank your milk while “looking at the stars”.  Love you guys.IMG_4892

The 52 Project/Week 28

This week CeeCee has been trying to fit is as many Christmas projects as possible.  Poor Avett…you are so NOT interested in the arts and crafts, but at least it keeps Justyce and Cody out of your hair while you play with your toys!  : )

The 52 Project/Week 27

During Thanksgiving week we went up to Cashiers to spend some quiet time with the family and it snowed.  Yay!!!  We decided to head outside to the Christmas tree farm for a few holiday photos!  It was chilly, but we all had a blast!

The 52 Project/Week 25

One of our favorite things about you right now, Avett, is seeing what your shoe choices will be.  Women’s shoes are your favorite, with women’s boots being at the top of the list.  Just to keep things interesting, you also like to wear a different shoe on each foot.  : )IMG_4339 IMG_4340Every day that CeeCee and Justyce are here you immediately put on whatever shoes Justyce wore here.  You wear the red mary jane shoes of Cody’s way more than she does…it is so endearing!  When Nana and I took you to Target a while ago to buy some winter boots you wanted nothing to do with any of the boys shoes…clearly the girls shoe department was waaaayyyy more interesting! I agree!  Who wants boring plain brown boots when there are pink sparkly ones!!!

Last week we went to Nana and Papa’s for dinner and you were wearing Cody’s red mary janes while watching Curious George with Papa.  You two are such a mess!

IMG_20141110_194813  Last night’s shoe choice before bed was pretty funny…you found these in the closet and pulled them out.  It was pretty funny trying to get them on your feet because you are extremely ticklish on your feet and kept cracking up when we were trying to help you put them on!IMG_20141121_205949-Love you buddy
