CeeCee has been working all week on creating a special Valentine’s Day Party for you… You guys loved every second of your party! Avett especially loved his card…Happy Valentine’s Day to my sweet kiddos! We love you more than words can begin to say…
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! Then, Avett found his glasses again while playing with the play dough. I love these glasses.Love you guys-
We’ve had a lot going on this week! We celebrated our Christmas with Justyce and CeeCee on Tuesday. CeeCee tried to get all of you laughing and smiling while Mommy was taking the picture…I’m not sure what happened to get this response!Santa made a “trial run” this week at Nana and Papa’s house, so we went to see what he left you you guys! Balance Bikes!!! Cody felt like such a big girl in her helmet! Avett, you took to your bike like a fish in water! You were amazing zooming around the cul-de-sac with the big kids! Cody hitched a ride with Dada on one of the big kid scooters…After riding bikes for a while we went into Nana and Papa’s for dinner and Avett was so excited about wearing his helmet that he wouldn’t take it off for dinner…After dinner, Santa came around the neighborhood in a fire truck and gave you guys candy canes! You were SO EXICTED to meet him!!! Cody you ran over to Santa right away and gave him a big hug! A few nights later was Christmas Eve and Nana, Papa, and Uncle Matt came to our house to celebrate!Cody, you really have your “CHEESE” face down for the camera now. : )Then it was time to get to the good stuff!!! Presents!We did some woodworking…And Avett tried on princess shoes while wearing his superhero mask…Firefighter Cody to the rescue!Papa tried to wear the Fire Chief outfit, but it was a little small for him…The next morning we had a quiet Christmas morning with just the four of us! Santa ate all the cookies we left for him and his reindeer ate all of the carrots!!! Here we are opening our gifts and thanking Santa for all his hard work!
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
This week we spent some quality time with Nana up in Cashiers. We decided to head back to Cliffside Recreation area to check out some fall color… Avett is telling us to, “Come on!”And off you two go together through a tunnel of rhododendrons…The color around the lake was gorgeous! Just the reflections in the water were stunning! Not a bad place to run and play!We stopped to have a snack at the picnic tables… and found a really cool fuzzy caterpillar!Once we started hiking again Nana found some cool mushroom! Then, we threw a few rocks into the water…We hiked for a while…and then we got tired….We stopped for a last look over the lake at the end of our hike. Love you guys…
