Christmas 2009

Well, Christmas was here and gone and Avery enjoyed every minute of it; she is already talking about next year....

Well, for Santa to know what she wanted she had to mail a letter to him.
Christmas Eve we rolled, cut, decorated and baked cookies for Santa, he must be a really special guy to have homemade cookies waiting for him.

Christmas Eve, opening presents at Meme and Papa's
A keyboard
A tutu
Add Image A puppy dog - I just loved her facial expressions this year
Christmas morning - at home
Santa must have enjoyed the cookies as he only left cookie crumbs and a note
A dollhouse (Avery calls it her Barbie house)
A watch
Hungry Hungry Hippo
Checking out what is in her stocking - of course panties
Last but not least a scooter.
Christmas evening - waiting for Meme and Papa to get home, so she can see what is in her stocking there.
Starting early - scratching a lottery ticket
We hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas and wish you the
Best in 2010!!!

Gingerbread House

We "built" a gingerbread house this past weekend. Mom and I did most of the work and Avery stopped to "help" every once in a while. I believe our final product is pretty good for a beginner.

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Houston, Texas got some snow yesterday, amazing. It was too funny at work as the snow was coming down pretty good (for Texas) and us adult Texans were glued to the window like it was something we have never seen before.

Making a Snowball

I got one, who is going to be the lucky target?
Daddy, good choice Being Silly
Daddy made a snowman about the time Avery started having a meltdown, so she isn't too happy in the picture, but I wanted her to take her picture with the snowman as this one is way bigger than the ones we would make in Brenham when I was younger.
Stay warm, although I believe today it is going to almost make it to 50 degrees, which is still cool, but from 26 degrees to 50 degress is a pretty good jump. But then again we live in Texas.

Dewberry Farms - 2nd Annual Trip

This past Sunday a group friends got our crews together for an afternoon of fun at Dewberry Farms. The clouds around us didn't look too promising, but it ended up being perfect.

Grasyn would work so hard to get on her feet on the "pillows" and as soon as she would get on her feet Avery and Dawson would jump and she would fall down. Avery and Dawson got a kick out of it, but Miss Grasyn wasn't too much a fan as she was determined to stay on her feet.
When Grasyn would fall Dawson and Avery tried to help her get up, but she didn't want their help, she was determined to get up herself and she would.

Cheetos were the snack of the day and they did a really good job of sharing.
Who's Ducky is going to win?
I feel sorry for the bus driver if these 4 ever ride
the same school bus.
Until next year...

Disney On Ice

Last Friday we took Avery to Disney on Ice and she loved it. The highlight was pretty well all the Disney Princesses were there; Belle, Snow White, Cinderilla, Jasmine and Pocahontas. We also saw Nemo, Toy Story and Pinocchio. There were others, but these are the ones that come to mind.

Avery was not too sure about her daddy's
costume at first, but she warmed up after a while.
