2 Bike Riders

We now have 2 bike riders on our walks in the neighborhood...well, sort of. Ella doesn't use the pedals, she just pushes herself forward with her feet on the ground.  Kind of like the Flintstones!  She doesn't make it very far, but it's a start and she Loves her bike!

I guess she's thinking here that if she keeps her feet up the bike will just propel itself??

so excited about herself!!

getting a little help from daddy up the hill  

dancing and singing on the "singing rock" near the pond.  this is a favorite place of avery's that we have to stop at every time.  we all have to sing so i hope no one is listening bcuz that would be a little embarassing...for them to hear my singing, not the others :)

bike is with daddy and ella and i are walking home together.  it's a workout in itself but totally worth it!

Some Randoms

Here's some more pics I've found on the computer that I haven't gotten around to putting in posts.  Here goes:

Oh yeah, Ella is loving wearing Avery's headphones and dancing and listening to her music!

Sweet cousins dressed up as dancers

and more princess dress-up!

Ella ready to go spend the night out with Avery's suitcase

She found the princess heels and is loving walking around in them.  Don't mind her scratched up healed in 4 days, woohoo!

Jammie and teddy bear day at school.  She looks so cozy!

Last girls night out before Heather and Brandon skidaddle to Atlanta in a month.  So much fun with the girlies, but so sad to see the Lairsen's go :(

Best buds!

Always holding our lotions or chapsticks.  My lips and hands are so dry bcuz I can't find any of mine.  The hoarder has put them somewhere and I can't find them! 

Lovey and "taci" and big brown eyes :)

More bike-riding in the house of course!

Career Day

Avery's career day choice...seems about right for this princess :)

Happy Valentine's Day

Avery had her Valentine's Party at school on Monday. They got to decorate their own sugar cookies, eat popcorn and of course exchange their valentines.  She was so excited to bring home her valentine bag and her "mailbox" they had made with lots of letters from her friends!

My 2 Lovebugs all dressed up in their cute Valentine's Day outfits made by none other than the infamous Nana!

this is what hugs look like in our house :)

Before Tim left for work, he left this balloon for Ella.  She was so excited and kept saying her version of balloon which comes out something like bluna?  She can't stop playing with it.

We went to my parents and Tim's parents (where I forgot to bring in my camera, but the girls got more goodies over there) in the morning and these treats were waiting for the girls.  Lucky them, all of their grandparents spoil them rotten and that's exactly what they're supposed to do!

Open, Open, Open

More balloons!!

She snagged both the Hello Kitty dolls

And, then shared by giving Avery one.  We teach them early around here :)

Hoarding her candy!

Shocker...we're all looking and smiling at the camera

My gifts for the 3 loves of my life!  Fun stuff for the girls and some new IPA's for Tim to try

Tim brought Avery her favorite color, purple bouquet of flowers.  She asked him "Daddy, how did you know that purple was my favorite color?"

Holding her new stuffed animals.  She can't decide which one, so...

she loves on both of them

These are terrible pics but one of our Valentine meals we had over the weekend was this yummy steak and lobster tail.  It was so delicious!  My mouth is watering just thinking of it!  The steak was cooked perfect and the lobster was so tasty too! 

And, no Valentine's meal would be perfect without chocolate covered strawberries for dessert.  My favorite were white chocolate until Tim stumbled upon these sprinkled white chocolate covered tasties!  You must try some sprinkled ones if you get a chance...they are so yummy!! 

Happy Valentine's Day!!!
