The 52 Project/Week 29

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

 

 

 

The 52 Project/Week 24

A few years ago we started a tradition with our friends that we love.  Our friends are truly our “chosen family”…we are so lucky to be surrounded by amazing friends to raise our children with, celebrate the good times with, and support each other through the rough times.  A few weeks before Thanksgiving we have a “Friendsgiving” potluck party.  All of our friends bring a side dish or dessert, Dada cooks a turkey, and everyone has a chance to visit and catch up!  Thanks to our buddy Dean who hijacked mama’s camera for a while and took some photos for us!IMG_4342 IMG_4343 Doug and “Douglet”…IMG_4359 Traffic in Atlanta can really get to you…IMG_4357Don’t make me come over there!!!IMG_4358  Joe busting up a traffic jam between Hank and Avett…IMG_4355 Jenny & Hank IMG_4352 Charlotte & Levi enjoying some time on the slide…IMG_4349 IMG_4348 IMG_4347 IMG_4345 Joe, Justyce and Avett mugging for the camera!IMG_4372 Jon, Dean, Merry, & Jaimie…love these people!IMG_4370 NayNay!IMG_4373 Kirty and Papa spend some time catching up on the deck…IMG_4375 NayNay with the kiddos on the porch swing…IMG_4377  Andy took everyone for wagon rides…IMG_4385 IMG_4386IMG_4392 IMG_4394 IMG_4419 IMG_4423  IMG_4415 IMG_4412Avett is a big fan of Nana’s bacon deviled eggs…CeeCee walked him around the deck…like dangling a carrot in front of a horse!  : ) IMG_4380IMG_4383Double Trouble…IMG_4426

The 52 Project/Week 22

Well, we’ve been reading books leading up to Halloween to help you guys understand the whole trick or treat/costume concept…neither of you have really ever had candy (mommy tries to limit sugar and processed foods for you), or seen monsters, ghosts, witches, etc. so we weren’t sure how you would feel about it.  Let’s just say Halloween was a hit!!!  This year you guys dressed up as an elephant (Avett) and a ladybug (Cody).  We went over to our neighbors house to meet before heading out to go trick or treating!IMG_2068IMG_2063 Avett, you were so proud to show me your loot!IMG_2079 In between houses Dad pulled you along in the wagon so you could conserve energy for trick or treating!  Dad dressed up as a fly fisherman…IMG_2080
