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! : )
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. : ) Every 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!
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!-Love you buddy
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! Doug and “Douglet”… Traffic in Atlanta can really get to you…Don’t make me come over there!!! Joe busting up a traffic jam between Hank and Avett… Jenny & Hank Charlotte & Levi enjoying some time on the slide… Joe, Justyce and Avett mugging for the camera! Jon, Dean, Merry, & Jaimie…love these people! NayNay! Kirty and Papa spend some time catching up on the deck… NayNay with the kiddos on the porch swing… Andy took everyone for wagon rides… Avett 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! : ) Double Trouble…
Dada made a wonderful turkey breast on the Big Green Egg! Nana & Gma assembled deviled eggs for everyone!Papa wanted to skip the turkey and go straight for Renee’s homemade pumpkin pie! We had more kids here this year than ever! The kids table is growing! Coen! : ) Humza by the fire working on his AMAZING sketches…unreal talent!!! After dinner the kids enjoyed a screening of Madagascar II while playing in the basement…
Last week while we were in Cashiers we went to Dollar General and bought some cheap plastic glasses from the Halloween section for you guys to play dress up with…. We quickly learned that the eyeballs on the glasses would pop out and then they were just colorful frames. Avett, you took a particular liking to these glasses and wore them nonstop! Here you are reading your favorite culinary magazine with them… And reading a book before nap time…And hanging out with Papa… Making yet another fashion statement…Dada wanted to get in on the fun… Love our little stylin’ man!
So, mommy has had a really packed schedule and dropped off on her weekly photo shoot. However, I recently cleaned off all of the pictures from my cell phone and had so much fun seeing all of the cute pictures that I had forgotten about on there! This post has a few of my oldie but goodie favorites from the cell phone!
