Christmas 2009 pics

Christmas was so much fun this year! It went by so fast. Here are a few pictures of how much fun we had! The kids were both excited about opening presents. On Christmas morning I think we were done opening in about 10 mins!

Avrey is 2!

Wow how time flies! 2 years ago today Avrey came into the world. She suprised us all when she arrived 3 weeks early. I remember the day like it was yesterday. Three pushes and she was out! She still continues to amaze us everyday! She talks all the time and repeats everything. She knows her colors and loves to dance. Some of her favorite things are playing with her babies and playing with her kitchen. Avrey is a very independent little girl. She wants to do everything by herself unlike her brother. I can't wait to how she amazes us this year! We love you Avrey! Happy Birthday!

Stony Creek Pumpkin Patch

Today we went to the pumpkin patch. We started going when Jacob was two and have been going every year since. It was such a beautiful fall day to go. We took the hayride out to pick out our pumpkins and even climbed the haystack. There were so many great pumpkins to pick from. We ended up with two big pumpkins and two little ones. Now we just have to find time to carve them in the next couple of weeks.
Nice Family Picture. Jacob's new smile for pictures. Climbing haystack with cousin Ashleigh Enjoying the hayride

Avrey's First Haircut

Actually, just a trim. She did awesome! She sat in the Barbie Jeep, which she loved and did not make a fuss. On the way to the haircut place she kept saying how the haircut was going to "tickle" her. I am not sure why she thought that....probably because of Jacob! You have to love Big Brothers!

Fun At Monkey Joe's!

Today we went to Monkey Joe's with Lisa, Chad and Kylee. The kids had a great time and so did we. For those of you that have never been, it is a bunch of inflatable bouncy things (i know great word) in one room. They have small ones for the kids under 3, but of course Avrey and Chad still wanted to go on the bigger ones. Here are some pictures. It is hard to snap great photos when the kids are all running in different directions.

Actually got them to sit still for a quick picture!

Horses and Fireworks!

On Friday night we went to visit my sister's 2 horses. She rents/leases them from someone about 15 minutes away. Jacob and Avrey loved them. We were just going to take a picture of Avrey sitting on the horse, but to our surprise she wanted the horse to "go." Jacob was the same way. He would have stayed on all night if we would have let him. I was surprised at how much they both enjoyed it.

On Saturday night, we had a cookout with our neighbors in the rain. Every year we get together with a few neighbors and their family and cookout. We did not let the rain spoil it this year. They put up a few tents and we used part of their garage. Even though it was raining and cold, it was fun. We made hot chocolate and built a fire in the pit. I know it sounds crazy, but it was cold. We all had sweats and jackets on. It was pretty crazy for the fourth but we were gonna celebrate anyways.
