Hawaii...

I wish. I've never been. Avaree actually went for preschool this week, lucky girl! She was SO excited to go to "Hawaii" that we were trying to decide what she should wear to school the next day (she wanted to wear her swimsuit). I told her that flowers were Hawaiian and that she should wear a flower in her hair, then I put her to bed and went to Baylee's basketball game. I came home and Jason said, "the kids were great, they stayed in bed the whole time." Then all of sudden I hear this voice saying, "Mommy." And out came Avaree from her room with EVERY flower she could find in her hair. It was hilarious! I think she had fallen asleep but wanted to show me her hair so when she heard my voice she woke up to show me. She couldn't keep her eyes open for a picture because the flash was so bright...


It's these moments that make parenting so great (and
pregnancy worthwhile)
!

She drew this picture in class on "Hawaii" day. I love her artwork. She is already better than me.

Pregnancy blues I hear ya!! I'm nursing and growing a fetus and honestly it's hard to eat an extra 1000 calories. I feel like a frumped out cow! But then our little ones do something as sweet as loading their hair with a bazillion hair bows and it makes it all worth while. Avaree is amazingly adorable and super talented. She is just like her mama! I hope you and baby #3 are doing wonderful!

I feel sad that James and I weren't able to pass on any artistic talent to our kids. I find Avaree's artwork extremely impressive for her age. Neither Lucas or Sunny could come up with anything even remotely close to that and they are both older than her! She definitely has some talent! Lucky girl.

She's so cute. I love it when kids get excited for good things! (not just candy)I haven't talked to you in forever- let's get together this week or next! Or at least let your kids come and play..... I know, winter can drag on sometimes. It is SO beautiful, though. I have to admitt that I LOVE it. It will be over soon enough and then we can complain about the heat (or at least I can).
