March Fun!

Kale loves to yell for Dada and this is what he was doing over the weekend when we were playing outside! Dave yells back at him from the "new house" and Kale thinks that is sooo funny!
Ava was having fun on her skooter and decided that she should try on Daddy's boots! You just never know what outfit Ava is going to have on!

Here's my sweet Kale just smiling in his car seat!

Ava's big highlight of March is that she learned how to blow bubbles! We go through a lot of bubble gum at our house!

Here is Kale this morning before I left for work drinking his bottle and wearing his shades! The kid's Easter outfits arrived today. I LOVE them and Ava loves her new shoes. I can't believe they sat still long enough for a picture. I am now on the hunt for a dress for our new little one....that's right, we are having a little GIRL! Amelia Rose should be here to meet us around the beginning of August and we can't wait. Ava is on cloud 9 knowing that she is going to have a little sister!

Check out Ava's shoes! She wants to know if Daddy and I are going to wear orange!

I wanted to finally share a few cards with you. This one is what we made at stamp club last night. I was inspired by Laurie Schmidlin's card here. It was a fun card to make and a little more vintage than I usually do. We used SU's music wheel too so that was fun! This is Ava's 5th Birthday invitation. I LOVE how this turned out and Ava does too. She is getting to have a swimming party with some of her little friends. I used SU's new Punch Fun stamp set with the owl punch. It's just a fun cheery card, perfect for her birthday!

We got to spend the morning with my nephew taking his 1 month pictures. It's hard to believe that he is 1 month old already! It is almost 70 here today and we are loving it. We aren't outside yet, but will be later on....hopefully if it doesn't start storming. Kale is napping and then Ava has gymnastics. The horses seem to be enjoying the nice weather too. Have a great day!

Check Out These Look Alikes!

Kale is 16 months here in the same size "3T" shirt and Ethan is 20 months! Ava had just been born in April of 2007 and Kale will be 21 months when our new baby is born this August!

March is Here!

Here is what our house looked like this morning from the kitchen window of our current house. You can now start to see the beginnings of our second floor! So glad that spring is almost here! Here is Kale David with his new "wee squeek shoes". They drive Dave nuts because they squeak everytime he takes a step. You can take the squeaker out, but it is much more fun this way!

This is a picture of my little nephew's "crazy" hair. He is such a doll and has hair like you wouldn't believe and it is soooo blond. I just finished up the announcements for him today! Of course I didn't get a picture, but I will share soon!

Here is my cowgirl being goofy! Kale had been running around with her hat on so she decided it was time for me to take her picture!

And here is Ava giving her brother a kiss before she hops on the bus for preschool! They can be so sweet to each other at times!
Now I'm off to work on Ava's birthday invitations while Kale is napping! I have a "TON" of laundry to fold, but it will wait.....it always does! Hope everyone has a good weekend!

I'm "So Big"!

I've had a super busy week here, but wanted to share one of my favorite photos that I took of Kale. My sister-in-law taught him to do this "trick". Here is Kale doing his new trick! He won't do it everytime you ask, but it is sooo cute when he does.
We also have a new little addition to our family! My brother and his wife had a new little guy, Dax Thomas! He was born on Valentine's Day and is just adorable with tons and tons of blond hair. Here's a picture of Ava and I holding Dax. Kale calls him "Night Night" because he is always sleeping. He also pats on my belly and says "Night Night"!

This will be another busy week. I'm going to work a little extra just because I have some projects that need to get finished up. I just finished up today 38 wedding shower invites, next up is 75 baby announcements, and then Ava's birthday invitations. She is getting to have a swimming party with her friends at a hotel and is super excited! Her card is going to be an owl theme! Hopefully I'll get a chance to share some of my creations with you! Hope everyone has a great week!
