DinoLand Exhibit at Zilker Park

So much tougher than this dinosaur

Giving Avery a little nibble on her neck

We went to this really neat dino exhibit in the botanical gardens at Zilker Park with the playgroup from our ward. The girls thought it was really cool to see all the different kinds of dinosaurs they had. Avery just mostly wanted to run around and play in the dirt. A few different exhibits showed the dino's eggs and Avery kept saying, "I want those big eggy bites" which is what we call scrambled eggs at our house.

Fairy Princess Party

Jaeden and Avery's cute little friend Emma had her 3rd birthday party on Saturday. It was a fairy princess make-over party. They got their hair done and make-up while watching the new Tinkerbell movie and then made princess wands and colored a tinkerbell picture. Jaeden and Avery have been wearing their little fairy skirts and wings since the party. It was so fun and we were so happy to be able to celebrate with Emma.

Happy Halloween

Halloween morning (the girls could hardly wait to put their costumes on)

The girls at Old Settler's Park Halloween party

Super Girl!!

Cute little Tink

Passing out candy after trick or treating
The girls were so excited for it to get dark to go trick or treating. We started off excited and ready. The second house had a big dog that ran to see the kids in their costumes and from then on Avery was very apprehensive to knock on strangers doors. I think passing out candy is even more fun than going door to door for Jaeden and Avery. They took turns putting candy in people's bags and telling them how pretty or scary they looked.

Halloween Fun

Movie and popcorn
My friend Lara hosted a Halloween storytime/cookie decorating playgroup for the kids in our ward. There was such a good turnout and the kids had so much fun!

Movie Hour

I love this picture for many reasons. For one, Jaeden is being such a sweet big sister to hold and keep Avery feeling safe and comforted, they are so cute with each other. My most favorite reason for loving this picture is that they are watching the Tigger Movie, it's very intense if you can't tell by the look on their faces.

Pumpkin masterpiece

Queen and King of the Hay Tractor

The fun kids from Jaeden's playgroup (a couple are missing)

Dressing the scarecrow
This is the second year we have gone to Elgin Farms Christmas Tree pumpkin patch with Jaeden's playgroup. They have all sorts of fun things to do from hayrides to decorating pumpkins for the kids to do. The kids love going to Elgin for all this fall fun.

Hot Stuff

Great Grandma Jackie gave Jaeden these Hello Kitty sunglasses. She loves wearing them and loves to pose in them too. Thanks Grandma Jackie!

Future Doctors

The girls love to check heart beats and make sure their dolls, mom and dad are nice and healthy. We love our cute little doctors.

Mom and Dad

I had to take this picture off my sister's blog and post it on mine too. This is my mom and dad going to a Primerica Halloween party as "Rondo" and "Ronda" the Walmart greeters. They got Wal-mart to donate badges and everything. Don't they look hot?? My parents crack me up.

Sweet Berry Farms

We were able to go to Sweet Berry Farms, once again, in Marble Falls. Our fun friends Laura and Emma Zang joined us and made the trip even more exciting. We were able to go on a hayride, paint pumpkins, and pet the donkeys and horses. We always have a great time here. I am so excited that fall has arrived. Hopefully the temperature will catch up to the season soon.
I forgot to thank Laura for taking these pictures, thank you!!

Avery's Big Bed

Now that she's a big two year old, Avery has finally moved from a crib to a toddler bed. She was very excited when she saw it and didn't have any trouble with the transition.

Lunch Time

Just a few cute little pictures from lunch the other day.

Ding Dong

Jaeden and Avery playing "Fort"... they have doorbells, right?

Jaeden's Date and Superhero clothes

Dan took Jaeden ice skating on their daddy-daughter-date yesterday. It was her first time and apparently they were both pretty shaky so Dan didn't want to risk taking the camera out on the ice for more pictures. He said they had so much fun. It was so cute when they got home to hear from Jaeden how fun it was and to see how excited about her date she was.

After Jaeden's quiet time I went in her room and found her in this little outfit. She told me it was her superhero outfit. When I asked her what her powers were, she said I just have to show you and proceded to climb all over the furniture. Very fierce don't you think??

Avery's B-Day Party: Part 3

We did a little family party for Avery the day after her birthday to spread it out a little. Jaeden could hardly stand waiting for Avery to open her presents up. We loved watching Avery's excited expressions over everything she opened. Happy 2nd birthday big girl!!

Avery Wins

Avery is quite the picky eater so we tried to expand her menu a bit by giving her a cheese quesadilla. She didn't want it, so we told her to just eat one bite. This is the one bite, an hour and a half later.

Avery's B-Day Party: Part 2

On Avery's birthday we had a birthday party for her at Brushy Creek Sprinkler Park. The kids all got a big bouncy ball to play with in the water and then we had a little cookout for lunch. Thank you to all the fun friends for coming and partying with us.
