Two years ago today...

Ava Rose was born! I can't believe my Boo is two years old! Where did the time go? She is developing such a personality. And a temper too. But we'll only think about the good stuff on her birthday, right? Yesterday, we stopped at a Toys R Us and let her wander the store alittle, trying to see what would catch her eye. Pretty much ANYTHING. We let her pick out a Dora purse/bag with comb, brush, hair clips, a hair dryer (she's not much a fan of the hair dryer though) and a few other accessories. She also chose a couple small cars (Ava's got a thing for cars right now), fridge magnets, a Crayola crayon piggy bank and some wooden blocks. I have no idea what to tell family to get her! I sent cupcakes to daycare, and she got her favorite dinner today, McDonalds.

Well, here are a few of my favorite flash back pictures!

Happy birthday Boo!!!!

Pictures from Caseville!

We spent last weekend up in Caseville and we'll be heading up to Lexington this weekend. The girls are all about the beach.

Until I figure out the slide show below....I've add a couple pics of my beach babes. :)

I'm going to try and add a slide show in from Photobucket. Not sure if I'm smart enough to do it though! I think I may need a tutorial!

A couple of quick pics of the tree struck by lightening

It's quite a large tree, so hopefully, it won't have to be cut down.

And a close up....

Seems like forever since I was able to get on here and post! 3 long weeks with out a computer at home and my brother's computer friend (Todd) saved the day. Not only did he rebuild my computer (new hard drive and graphics card) he reloaded it with Windows XP professional, Office, a virus program AND, AND, he recovered ALL of my pictures!!!! I love that man.

Here's a few new ones. Love these smiles. Love these bright eyes.

It also seems like I just said this, but Ava is sick again. Another virus according to a probably very expensive urgent care visit. Poor boo had a temperature over 104 at daycare. My little thumbsucker picks up every germ imaginable at daycare with that little thumb.

Also, freak out moment of the month, one of the large trees in our yard was struck by lightening Saturday night. 3 AM. It was one of the loudest "crack" sounds you can imagine. John didn't find the spot until the next day. Very freaky. Thank God that tree is a good 75 feet from our house. I'll load some pics tomorrow.
Well, I'm off to bed soon. We have "strike team training" tomorrow morning. No idea what it entails, but the title probably makes it sound more important than it really is.
