Avery has Major Dance Skills

Me and my little Ave
This girl has some awesome moves, she is such a good little dancer with no inhibitions
Avery's dance teacher had the parents come in and watch the cute little girls do a little dance routine this week before their Christmas break. They did so good and it was so fun to watch Avery and all the dance moves she's been learning. I love that she loves to dance and she gets so excited to go to dance class every week.

Christmas Fun

Grammie D gave these cute nativity magnets to the girls last year at Christmas time, they were so excited to put it on the fridge and make their nativity scenes
This is Dominic's plastic food of choice, corn on the cob. He plays with it all the time.
Fun silly time while setting up the Christmas tree
This is a pretty constant scenario of Avery and Dominic, she is constantly trying to hug him or hold him
Brooke and Hailey came back to join us for our ward Christmas party

Our 20 Minute Snow Day

It started to snow a couple weeks ago and Avery ran and got her snow gear on and rushed outside to play
So cute, trying to catch the snowflakes. Jaeden said they got to leave class even though it wasn't recess time to go outside and play in the snow too, I loved that!
Dominic and I didn't stay outside too long, TOO cold!

Dominic's Firsts

This is Dominic's first time sitting up... well he started to fall over here but he did great for a minute or so. :)
I noticed Dominic getting a tooth, his very first, and then noticed what his shirt says and that it was a truely inspired outfit for the day. In case you can't tell what it says, "Yay, my first tooth!"
This was all about a month ago. Now he is a big 8 month old sitting, crawling, and trying to pull himself up onto everything, with 6 teeth and all. The crazy boy fun begins....

Brooke and Hailey

My friend Brooke came to visit us over the weekend with her cute little girl Hailey who is 2 1/2. We had a very fun, busy weekend together. After we all did a 3 mile walk around Pflugerville Lake, we went to 2 different parties, had playground time and then came home for dinner. The kids and Brooke crashed on the ground and we put on Cinderella to calm down for bedtime. We can't wait for them to come back and visit again.

Dominic loves this jumper. He gets some good distance in it.
Dominic is already 7 months old!
His mom LOVES him!! :)

Avery's First Haircut

She's in the "making a silly face for every picture" stage. She was so excited for her first haircut. I was not, but it needed to be done.
Avery's before pictures
I was so much more nervous than her. I kept looking at the ground at all her beautiful curls on the floor.
She proclaimed, "Mom, I have a new head!"
We celebrated Avery's first haircut with one of her favorite things, Ice Cream!! A girl after my heart. :)

Grandma and Grandpa are so Fun!

Jaeden and Avery have been wanting to trace everyone with their side walk chalk and then draw their clothes on them. When Grandma and Grandpa Haynes came to Austin to go trick or treating with us, they got them outside to trace them too. They are great sports, I couldn't resist taking their picture. We love you!

Better Late Than Never Halloween Pics

So excited and ready to trick or treat!! Avery asked to go trick or treating every night the whole month of October. When we finally went, I think she was finished after 20 minutes. She got her candy and just wanted to go home and eat it.
We went trick-or-treating with the Brocks in their neighborhood
It took some coaxing to get Avery to take this picture by the wicked witch
Audrey, Jaeden and MaKell

The cutest Cat in the Hat ever!
Our cute little Alice with Tyler the Power Ranger
We had a great Trunk or Treat Halloween party at our church the night before Halloween. We always love coming every year.
