Who's who?!?

It's crazy how much these two look alike! Can you tell who's who?!? :-)

never grow up...

Your little hand's wrapped around my finger
And it's so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter cause you're dreaming
So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light
To you everything's funny, you got nothing to regret
I'd give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

ava -- six days old.

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
I won't let nobody hurt you, won't let no one break your heart
And no one will desert you
Just try to never grow up, never grow up

ava -- 1707 days old.

our first trip to the pumpkin patch with each of our kiddos!  ava is such a big kid now, and wasn't all that excited.  preston just wanted to eat the pumpkins, and loved putting his bare feet in the grass.  precious kiddos. precious memories. perfect day.

life is full of surprises...

this past thursday, ava & i hopped on a plane for a surprise visit to see my family up north!  mom cried, and dad looked as though he might pass out at the sight of us! it was a whirlwind weekend.  the kind that was busy, but fun, and filled with lots of laughter and love (and maybe just a tad bit of stress).  i loved seeing ava making her childhood memories, watching her play with her cousins and get love from her nana, papa, and aunts & uncles.  we flew back to texas late monday night.  it was a great weekend!

all the cousins.  ava, raace, corbin, gunner, tatym & andyn

ava did serious bonding with mr. corbin.  it was great seeing them get along so well.  he followed her around calling her 'rayrah' and she mothered him like no other.  so cute to see.
playing outside.  the weather was gorgeous while we where there.

corbin was a little escape artist in his pj's.

ava was pretty concerned, and quickly helped him zip back up ;)

they had some fun in the 'hop tub' with nana on saturday afternoon.

This is gunner.  he is the cutest, sneakiest little dude.  here i caught him emptying nana's drawer.

playing outside.

ava and raace.  she got to spend some time with him at his house with aunt amanda and jump on the trampoline while i took my mom to get a walker.  she broke her ankle three weeks ago and has been confined to a wheel chair.  the walker will help her get around a little better!

nana and little miss enjoying the sun and hot tub.

and that's what we have been up to!
