Applesauce!!! Ave spend a day with Grandpa George & Grandma Cheryl. And she came back doing Applesause. It cracks me up. I just have to say whenever she spends time with Grandpa she comes home doing the most silly things. She loves her Grandpa. There is something so special about Grandpa. She still refuses to say Grandma. But I know she loves her Grandma very much. Just the other day we asked her what she wanted to do and she told us go to Grandpa's. She is always asking about Grandpa. I am so glad that he makes and can spend time with her cause she just loves it.

Here are the after photos. We still are not finished we need to add some crown modeling and some pictures and decor still need to be hung. But we are almost there.

Room Remodel

Ok so here are some of the before photo's.
It was so empty!! We were waiting to find some furniture that we liked and that would fit into this room (cause its a little small and shaped funny). So Blain had some extra time before he went to his dentist appt so he stopped by Sam's Club to pick up a couple of things. And saw the leather couch, chair & ottomen that were the perfect color and size we needed. So he sent me a picture and asked what I thought... I could not believe that he had found exactly what we wanted and needed. I was so excited that I ran down on my lunch break and took a look at them. Lucky for us they had a demo out on the floor!!! And so I sat in them and to my surpise they were comfortable. So we ended up getting them!!! We had to use both cars. And it all fit. Good thing cause we have no idea what we were going to do if they didn't fit. So then all we needed to do was paint. So on my way home I stopped and got paint. Blain was so sweet cause by the time I got home it was close to 7. And he was still wanted to paint. So we set everything up and started. What I mean by we started was really just Blain I was in the kitchen making cookies. And so after I was finished making cookies I was sleepy and headed to bed. Blain stayed up and painted. I woke up around 1:30 am and he was still painting. (by the way he had to work at 7am the next morning) I went out to see how far he was and he was just about finished. So we went out and got the furniture and brought it in and set it all up. I was so excited to see it all together. It looks so nice. I am really glad that it turn out the way it did. I could not be happier. Blain is such a sweetheart for doing that all for me. He worked so hard and then got up at 7 to go to work. I was so shocked he was able to get up. Good job babe!!!

The Many Faces of Avery Lyn

Cute As Can Be!!!

Avery got a new dress and she loves it. She will ask me every day if she can wear it. She loves to wear dresses. And she also asked me if she could wear the ribbon in her hair. She loves to dress herself. She thinks she is so big and can do everything by herself. Some days she is open to suggestions. Other days its all about her and what she wants. She is very independant. She likes to do all most everything on her own. Sometimes she can be so stubborn. Wonder who she gets that from???

A Look Back

Me & Blain were going over some old photos last night and we just couldn't believe how big Avery is getting. When you look back at the photos you can see that she is getting to be such a big girl. Its hard for me to see because I am with her all the time so I don't notice as much. Its kinda bittersweet for me because I look at her and think "oh my where has the time gone"? And then I am excited to see all the new things she learns but then sad again because she will never be this little again. Am I the only one who goes thought this? I sure hope not!!! But looking at the old photo's was so much fun and it reminded me of all the fun stuff we have done and all the things I look forward to doing.

Ok so here are some of my fav pic's of Avery in her Halloween Outfit. She just loves dressing up!!! She had so much fun this year. Both me & Blain had some much fun watching her walk up to the doors and hearing her say "trick or treat" in her sweet little voice. I just love Halloween and can't wait till next year.
