Oh yes we are crazy! We are having a third baby! Excited and super nervous are the emotions right now. I mean really I was an only child.. I have zero frame of reference! Wish us (me) luck!

Pumpkin Carving with the little Pumpkins~

 Ava loved her bat cat design she picked out.
 The pumpkin below is from a local farm in town and in September you can go and carve with a pen a design or such on the baby pumpkin as its growing on the vine. We picked it up in Oct. and it turned out to be pretty big!
Daddy and the kids carved some pumpkins the weekend of Halloween. They were fascinated but of course one but daddy wanted to dig out the inside of the pumpkin... maybe next year?

An Early Birthday Celebration~

Eating some breakfast with the grandparents!

Petting a mini pony at the harvest festival with grandpa.

Cole's birthday cupcakes
Below is Cole's reaction to getting his big Buzz Lightyear!
Grandpa Gary and Grandma Jane came down the weekend before Cole's 3rd birthday to celebrate. We went to the Harvest Festival, ate out a few times, and then Cole got to open his present. A big Buzz! And to say he was excited would be a major under statement!

First Days of Kindergarten

 First day of school! Cute outfit, cute backpack and matching hair tie!

 second day of school and the infamous "twinkle toes tennis shoes" and below is the 3rd day. (taken after school) notice messed up hair.
I should have posted this as my first blog back to blogging... Ava started kindergarten August 18th. So exciting and such a fun time. She loves school and is making little friends fast. I get to be a volunteer in her class twice a month.. so fun!!

Avila Barn Apple Picking

 We of course fed the animals too..
 Can you tell Cole was excited?!
 picking apples!
A couple of weekends ago while daddy was golfing I decided to take the kids to Avila Barn and it was so much fun! We got to go on a hay ride out to the orchards of lots of their crops of fruit and then they let you off at the apple orchards and let you pick apples! Us "Vegas" people thought it was amazing! So much fun! Who wants to come visit us and apple pick?!

Soccer Star!

The look of concentration!
Yep, I am officially a soccer mom! Ava has had 2 games so far and each time has scored goals. First game 2 goals after the whistle and 2 goals for the other team. Second game was just a straight 2 goals for the other team! Go Ava!
