Ava's obsessed

With babydolls!!  She ALWAYS has one in her hands.  She feeds them (often from her own plate), burps them (see 2nd photo from bottom) and insists on bringing them with her in the car and in the store.  She absolutely loves her babies.  When we pass babies in a store she screams "BEEEE!!"  She calls them Bee.  It is so cute to watch her with them, she is so sweet.  Sometimes she tries to dress her babies in her own clothes even.  Santa is going to bring her a doll sized stoller so she can take them for walks too.  This girl probably has 4 different baby bottles and at least 5 dolls.  It is a big deal around here :)

October Happenings

Yesterday was jam-packed with art projects for Ava.  First she started off with some finger painting on a wooden board so she can have it in her room.  After dinner we all sat down to decorate a halloween gingerbread house.  I didn't have many expectations for it, just a lot of sticky mess, but Ava loved it.  She had a hard time getting the heavy jelly beans to stick to the house, but Shaun put frosting on the cardboard and she piled on the candies (ate a lot too, but also piled)! What I didn't expect was how serious Shaun was about the project.  I didn't realize that he had NEVER made a gingerbread house before, even graham cracker ones.  Needless to say he'll have another go at it come Christmas time :)  And please don't mind Ava's messy hair.  Sometimes I just don't stand a chance with it.
